An Inviting Escape
Bryansford Cottage is the slightly misnamed 6 bedroom country house located at the edge of Bryansford village at the feet of the Mourne Mountains. Set in 1.5 acres of mature gardens, it is the perfect retreat to hideaway and relax in stunning scenery. From the house you can be in Tollymore Forest within a couple of minutes walk. We're about 10 minutes drive from either Newcastle or Castlewellan.
Built in the 1830s for the land agent of the local estate, it's steeped in history and has a whole host of period features. The house has been renovated over the last two years since we moved in to provide modern twists and additional comfort.
The 3 rooms available consist of a
: Family room, that has a double bed and a single bed.
: Double room with a king size double bed
: Twin room with two single beds
All rooms have an un suite shower room
We have a large guest area for dining and relaxing and the garden is free to use. We provide tea and coffee making facilities in your room but if you need to use the kitchen please ask and we'll try to accommodate as best we can.
Interaction with guests
We live in the house too so you'll probably see quite a lot of us - being Jay, Mary our 6 year old son and our labradoodle. This is a warm, welcoming family home and we love to have guests. If you'd rather have privacy and quiet, we won't be offended.
Other things to note
We are early risers and you'll likely hear some of the households manoeuvres in the morning. Not exactly banging house music but a bit of Radio 2 and breakfast dishes.
