Location description from owner

The County Down region

We consider ourselves very fortunate to own a holiday house in Co Down. This county has so much to offer:

NATURAL SCENERY GALORE - from mountains to blue flag beaches and forest parks, fields and rivers and lakes all within easy distance of each other!

HISTORY - we are steeped in history - from St Patrick's trail and cathedrals and monastic sites to castles, dolmens, a windmill (Ballycopeland), museums and National Trust Properties.

ACTIVITIES - too many to list them all. Mountain sports, water sports, fishing etc, cycling, archery, golf/ putting, swan pedal boats, children's play parks, equestrian, rambling...

SHOPPING - we are close enough to Belfast and Newry to benefit from designer shops.

CULTURE - everything from pub nights and Irish music to oyster festivals art galleries and plays; also Belfast Waterfront Hall and Grand Opera house are only 20 miles away.

FOOD - as in most areas now food places range from Mitchelin starred restaurants (Holywood and Newry) to fast food places such as McDonalds and KFC. So something to suit all. Newcastle is lucky to enjoy a good choice of eateries.

GOLF - it has to be remembered that the Royal County Down Golf Club - within 3 miles of our house, is considered the best course in the world outside of USA.

To give you an idea of distances - the Giant's Causeway up north in Co Antrim is just over 2 hours drive away.

Newcastle

Newcastle, Castlewellan and the Mourne area generally, lends itself to a host of outdoor activities for all ages, however, with such beautiful scenery to walk or drive through, it can also be a joy to relax in.

Percy French immortalised this area in his song - the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea!

Tollymore Park across the road from us is highly recommended. Children can enjoy rolling down hills , climbing trees, jumping over stepping stones across rivers. There is also a children's play area within the fenced picnic area. Many specimen trees can be found in the arboretum. Those who are interested may also wish to look for Game of Throne locations.

Try not to get lost in the maze in Castlewellan Forest Park - I still need to be guided from the viewpoint!!.

If you want an interesting pony trek Mount Pleasant Horse Trekking Centre is on the outskirts of Castlewellan.

Teenagers may enjoy mountain boarding at Surfin Dirt not too far down the road from us, or the indoor climbing wall at Hotrock - part of the Tollymore National Outdoor centre - within walking distance of our house.

Life Adventure Centre in Castlewellan Forest Park - organises many activities - archery/ kayaking & more.

Newcastle public library must surely have the best view of any.

The very popular Mauds cafe offers great light meals with a view and Pooh Bear ice-cream.. The Cookie Jar has great home made broth and wheaten bread.

My list could go on and on. I have an information pack in the house with a sample of local activities / events / places to go. Visit Newcastle Visitor Information Centre for lots more..
