“We’ve enjoyed so many local activities (hiking at the Mourne Mountains, Tollymore Park etc) as well as further afield, but after each fun-filled day, we have had the warm, cosy embrace of the cottage to welcome us back”

Birch Cottage dates originally from the 1840’s, and has been restored sympathetically with natural materials to retain some of the feel of a traditional Irish cottage but with a modern twist. Everything has been hand crafted  using local timbers, reclaimed materials, and is chemical free.

Powered entirely by solar and wind power, with a woodburning stove and solar hot water to provide underfloor heating and hot tap water, the cottage is carbon neutral in use. Comfortable, cosy and quirky, you won’t want to leave.

Many items in the cottage are unique, and made by ourselves or friends. Outside, you’ll find our own private woodland to wander in, a variety of horses, cats and dog to meet, and great views of the Mourne Mountains and unique County Down drumlin landscape.
