is a holiday cottage situated in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains in a designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” (AONB) in County Down, with truely breathtaking, panaramic views in all directions.
In August 2012 Carol Cottage was specifically featured in a BBC (NI) television programme regarding "the benefits and advantages of holidaying at home" (i.e. Northern Ireland).
The holiday cottage is just one and a half hours drive from either Dublin and Belfast and 30 minutes from the City of Newry. It is conveniently positioned between the fishing port/town of Kilkeel, the picturesque village of Rostrevor and the shoreline at Cranfield, with its award winning blue flag beach.
Surrounded by farmland, “Carol Cottage” is located in a quiet, rural setting and is an ideal base from which to go to the beach, fishing trips, cycle rides, horse riding, hiking and walking in the mountains or country lanes.
Well behaved dogs and small pets are welcome at Carol Cottage either inside the cottage or outside in a new, secure, purpose built dog compound and kennel area.
Carol Cottage is an idea base from which to access Castlewellan, Rostrevor, Kilbroney Park and Davagh Forest which boast over 80km of new purpose-built mountain bike trails, making this part of Northern Ireland the next must visit mountain biking destination in the UK and Ireland.
Although Carol Cottage does not have official Disabled Access status it is "wheelchair friendly" by being all on one level.
On arrival guests will normally be met by your meet and greet host who is also usually available to help with any queries guests may have during their stay.
We are also open for short breaks all year round.
