Tollymore Forestr ParkWhy not relax and unwind - take a break from the maddening crowd!! Stay at Priest Bridge Cottage country walks in the forest, coastal walks along the sea front blow away the cobwebs!! Could be just what the doctor ordered. Ask us about a relaxing Soak in the seaweed baths or a massage or even just a coffee.

Priest Bridge cottage is one of 4 cottages in a terrace of mill labourers dwellings. Originally the terrace was built as six two room units with one room upstairs and one room downstairs. The original thick stone back wall of the property can be seen in the living room.

The terrace later became three dwellings as family requirements became more demanding. However the centre terrace was returned to it's original twin dwelling some time later. With extensive renovations and development the property has been tastefully brought to 21st Century requirements, and provides an excellent base for a cosy rural retreat.

Tollymore Forest ParkInside the accommodation is surprisingly large. Immediately inside the cottage is the first reception room, with large wood burning stove, giving the cottage an immediate homely appeal. An open plan living and dining area with a fully fitted kitchen boasts sunroom area opening onto the patio area beyond, with BBQ and garden furniture for alfresco dining providing alternative areas for relaxation for all seasons.

Priest Bridge CottageOn the edge of Tollymore Forest Park and the Mourne Mountains to the West, situated on the Shimna River, this area is designated as “an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty” offers a lot of scope for those enjoying the outdoor life.

Having discovered the cottage through the internet, it was a pleasure to make contact with the owners and to receive such a warm and accommodating welcome. Our brief stay afforded plenty of opportunity for good walks in Tollymore and some post Christmas relaxation.
