Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Nestled on the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, Slieve Martin cottage is surrounded by 24 acres of peaceful farmland.
Our clean and cosy three bedroom cottage, sleeps up to 6 people. A combined kitchen/living area, with an open log-fire, is perfect for family get-togethers, or somewhere to relax with your friends after a long day walking or mountain-biking in the Mournes. There is a separate bathroom, WC, and shower room, so no need to worry about queues! The cottage has all mod-cons, including washer/dryer, and a dishwasher. Oil-fired central heating is included in the price. We can provide cots and highchairs if needed.
On site, there is also plenty to do. We have a children's playground, and the tennis court is always popular for those wanting to show off their competitive side. For somewhere to get away for a picnic or to get closer to nature, we have a 2km riverside/farm trail. This brings you right around the farm on which Rostrevor Holidays is situated, and runs along the Yellow Water River.

The County Down region
In a letter to his brother, CS Lewis who penned the works of ”The Chronicles of Narnia” wrote “That part of Rostrevor which overlooks Carlingford Lough is my idea of Narnia.” While living in England he spoke of the magic of Northern Ireland: “I yearn to see County Down in the snow, one almost expects to see a march of dwarfs dashing past. How I long to break into a world where such things were true.” In his essay On Stories “I have seen landscapes, notably in the Mourne Mountains and southwards which under a particular light made me feel that at any moment a giant might raise his head over the next ridge.”
Located in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, 2 miles outside of Rostrevor village, and within an hour's drive from Belfast, and 90 minutes from Dublin. This makes it an ideal location for visiting the Mournes, but also to base yourself to visit all the great sights that the East coast of Ireland has to offer.Below we have detailed the proximity of the cottages in relation to the main cities of Ireland and the main transport links.
Rostrevor, Kilbroney Park
Kilbroney Park is a beautiful parkland area with many walks. Also a good starting point for walks into the Mournes. There is a large children's playground beside the carpark, also toilet facilties, and a café. There are several picnic tables, and many of the walks are suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Football pitches can be found by walking halfway down the hill in front of the café building, and turning right. Children will enjoy exploring, and climbing the trees.
The parkland stretches right down to beside the coast, and there is a lovely flat walk along The Fairy Glen (entrance can also be gained at bottom of hill in Rostrevor).
Directions from Rostrevor Holidays: Take a left turn in middle of Rostrevor, Kilbroney Park entrance is about 500metres on the left hand side.
