Slievemoyle Cottages (Mill Cottage)


Converted from a seventeenth century corn mill on our hill farm, Mill Cottage has many original features; quarry tiled floors, exposed stone, deep windowsills, and vaulted ceilings.

The cottage is well equipped, open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, with comfortable sofas and vintage pine furniture. The wood burning stove will be set and ready to light when you arrive, with a complimentary basket of logs. Four people will sleep very comfortably in two bedrooms, in either super king or single beds- please advise your preference when booking. There is one bathroom with a shower over the bath. Bedlinen and bath towels are supplied and oil central heating and electricity use is included in the rate.

The double doors from the sitting room lead to a paved patio facing West for lovely evening sun and amazing sunsets. There is a wooden picnic table and benches for meals outside and plenty of parking space too. At the side of the cottage is a area of lawn for picnics and play, edged by Ash trees and an old stone wall, with lovely views of Castle Mahon mountain. Make time to trek to the top- the views are well worth the climb. Other wildlife trails lead from the cottage around our 56 acres of hill farm. Follow the maps in your cottage or ask us for the best routes. Remember to pack your walking boots.

Places to visit in the immediate area include Castle Ward National Trust property, Clear Sky Activity Centre (aka Winterfell from Game of Thrones), Strangford village, Kilclief and Ballyhornan beaches.

Follow the Down Coastal Route to Ardglass, Killough, and beyond to Newcastle and the Mournes, or go by ferry to Portaferry and the Ards Penninsula, through the towns and villages around Strangford Lough - a 50 mile loop - back to historic Downpatrick and home to Slievemoyle.

Belfast City is only a 50 minute drive away and the Antrim Coastal Route to the Giant's Causeway - doable in a day.

We live on site and are always happy to help. Waiting to hear from you.

In 2015 Slievemoyle Cottages were awarded a Silver Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
