The property

Offering lovely ground-floor accommodation in the bustling fishing village of Annalong, this delightful cottage is a great place from which to explore Northern Ireland's east coast.

Just walk down to the bottom of River Cottage's garden to discover the Annalong River, while the property lies within easy reach of amenities, and with two double bedrooms, this property is ideal for two couples.

Make your way into the homely sitting room after an afternoon walk and settle in for the evening, light the pretty, white woodburning stove for warmth, and rest on one of the two maroon sofas.

Over in the open-plan living space you can discover a well-equipped and organised kitchen, host to all the essential appliances including an electric range oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher, among several more.

Whip up something tasty to eat at the dining table here, with this space also hosting a double sofa bed for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Head outside and into the conservatory accessed through the garage, where a handy washing machine lives, and find some lovely seating looking out onto the long garden lawn and seating beyond, perfect for warm summer days.

Retreat to one of the two double bedrooms both decorated in a light and bright fashion with floral bedding, served by a neat shower room offering a delightful spot to freshen up.

Delight in an evening out to eat at the highly recommended Harbour Inn Restaurant, or stop in at the award-winning Galley Fish & Chip Shop.

Discover the wonderful Silent Valley Reservoir & Mountain Park further inland for some stunning, scenic walks and views of the area, or head to the Mourne Mountains for some more vigorous trekking.

Spend a sunny day at the seaside resort of Newcastle where a delightful beach awaits you, along with the fabulous Royal County Down Golf Club for those keen golfers.

Follow the Shimna River inland from Newcastle to come to the Tollymore Forest Park where an abundance of walking trails await you.
