“Smashing spot”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great holiday here at Tollymore. The cottage is lovely and has pretty much all you need for you holidays with a small garden for play. There area a few personal touches and extras that we weren't expecting such as sun loungers. We had 3 under 6 and being on the at the gate of the forest park was perfect for walks. Tollymore park is great and we were always finding new things. Spent the evenings knocking about the park on my bike and even saw a couple of deer. Also there plenty to do in the area with newcastle and castlewellan a few miles away to keep them amused. Swan boats in Newcastle a big favourite. Few minor issues to be aware of TV is dodgy when it raining, indoor dining area is limited and there were a few berries on a few of the bushes I wasn't to sure about. Having said that the cottage is brilliant and the location is better. On return I immediately booked for next year and we're already looking forward to it.

“Gem of a cottage”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here for a week at the end of July and was extremely happy with the cottage, it was clean, perfectly locatated and the owners have clearly put a lot of thought into how they set up the place with lots of nice little touches that make the cottage really feel like a home from home. The cottage is surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of tollymore and the mournes and is also only 5 minutes from newcastle. We'll definitely be back!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Went there with 3 other friends as a quiet few days as a chance to spend time with each other before we all went go our seperate ways for university! Amazing views, and very cosy cottage, perfect for sitting out in the sun and then heading inside to watch a movie onfront of the fire at night. Very close to Newcastle which was handy for a day trip and I would recommend it to anyone of any age looking for a relaxing and quiet time away! Thanks for a great stay!

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just back from a very relaxed and enjoyable week with the family. The Cottage is situated in the grounds of Tollymore Forest Park. Which in itself is just beautiful, The Gatelodge is extremely comfortable with everything you might need. The garden at the back is a sun trap and we were lucky to have amazing weather for the week.

I would and have reccommended it to friends and family. It is a place you would certainly go back to.

One small draw back is if you have teenage kids the tv reception and wifi isnt great and on our next trip with the kids I will bring a external dvd player or a usb stick full of movies for them to watch......however, this is just a heads up and not a criticism of the Cottage. There are plenty of things to do for those who dont care about this sort of thing.

The Cottage is very well kept and extremeley clean. There are plenty of logs and coal to burn in the multifuel burner or oil if you need it and even when not lit we found it very warm.

All in all a wonderful place to stay and we all agree, we cant wait to go back.

Places to check out...'One Life', in Castlewellen for adventure activities and the 'Mourne Archery centre'. Great value for money and just a drive up the road.
