Tollymore is in easy walking distance from your front door. See Location for more information.

The JaysNewcastle and the beautiful beach at Murlough are only two miles away. For the energetic there are equestrian centres, mountain sports and world famous golf courses nearby.

The area around Bryansford is full of everything a visitor could ask for. Less than two miles away from The Jays is the bustling sea-side town of Newcastle.

In the other direction is the slightly smaller Castlewellan. Both offer a variety of shops and facilities to cover all but the most specialist needs.

Further afield the shopping town of Newry and of course the provincial capital - Belfast, are both less than an hours drive away.

The cottage is straight ahead as you look. Unfortunately we are limited with Google Street View and can't get right to the door but if you turn to your right you will see arched gates which is Tollymore Forest Park. A short walk! Click on the icon in the top right corner to view in full screen. (Escape will allow you to exit full screen mode). Hold the left button on your mouse and drag to view from different angles. To move along the road either click the arrows on the road or choose a spot further along the road and left click your mouse once to advance! (If you don't move your mouse far enough away you will see a magnifying glass in your circle, move a bit further and it disappears. Click and advance! If you find yourself activating the magnifying glass simply right click and zoom out.)

You will have noticed a small window to the bottom right with a little yellow man in the centre. What you are seeing in the main window is the view through his eyes. This window can be enlarged by clicking the arrow in the top left corner. Use the '+' and '-' to zoom in/out. You can also drag the yellow man to e.g. the nearest town and have a quick tour before you arrive! Of course the blue icon represents the location of the cottage.

Note: Extend (top left) the box in the right bottom corner and click and drag the yellow man down Burrenreagh Road. Although this road appears to stop at a t-junction keep going as if the road is there. You will see a road coming towards you, release the yellow man on this road and have a wander around Tollymore Forest Park!

Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ...
