The property

This quaint, detached railway cottage lies just outside the pretty harbour town of Newport on the shores of Clew Bay, County Mayo. Ideal for a romantic break, this lovely Newport cottage is surrounded by picturesque scenery, and is just a few yards from the popular Great Western Greenway cycling and walking trail, offering easy access to many walkways through grassy banks and along the beautiful Beltra Lake. Set entirely on the ground floor and lovingly-presented throughout, this Mayo cottage has a well-equipped kitchen and dining area for enjoying romantic meals, a cosy sitting room with a roaring open fire, perfect for snuggling up of an evening with a glass of wine and two comfortable bedrooms; sure to provide you with a restful night’s sleep. Outside your welcoming Newport cottage, you have a lawned garden to be enjoyed on those sunny Mayo days while you dine alfresco or to simply relax and enjoy the peace and quiet with a good book. The nearby popular town of Newport is a perfect day out with an array of activities to keep you busy such as visiting Clew Bay and trying your hand at a spot of sea angling, fresh water fishing and a range of water-based activities or perhaps a trip to one of the many local pubs waiting to welcome you with open arms. Just a short drive will bring you to Wesport where you can visit many historical sites such as Kylemore Abbey, Westport House and the Museum of Country Life and further afield, you can reach Castlebar, the county town of Mayo. A superb property in a great location for making the most of your trip to the beautiful county of Mayo.
