  • "We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Glebe Farm Cottage."

    Everything we needed was provided and of high quality. Sharon and David were very hospitable hosts and always ready with information and advice. The welcome pack was a lovely idea especially the fresh eggs from the hens in the field next door. We would certainly recommend the cottage and look forward to returning. Derek and Margaret .

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week in Glebe Cottage."

    The cottage is in a lovely setting on a working organic farm just on the edge of the Mourne mountains. We received a warm Northern Irish welcome from David and Sharon with a thoughtful welcome pack with homemade goodies. The cottage is very well equipped and very clean with lovely big windows making it light and airy. Thank you!

    Hi we are glad you and Jo enjoyed your stay at the cottage and Northern Ireland. I'm sure you have lots of memories from your childhood haunts. Good meeting you again. Property Owner

  • "We so enjoyed our stay at Glebe Farm."

    Sharon and David are such friendly and helpful hosts, and the cottage had everything we needed; it was really comfortable and clean, and in a great location. The views out over the farm are a joy with horses, rabbits, alpacas, chickens and views of the mountains in the distance. We walked up to the town and ate out at a nearby restaurant, Loft 56, a few times. We thoroughly recommend Glebe Farm and we are considering when we can go back!

    Hi Steph thank you for your lovely review. We were glad to be of help and that you had an enjoyable stay in the cottage and Northern Ireland. Hopefully see you back again. Property Owner

    The bungalow is light, airy, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. The big picture windows provide views of the happy hens, alpacas and horses, as well as across the fields towards Rathfriland itself and a tiny, tantalising glimpse of the Mourne Mountains. The location is peaceful, with easy access to the Mournes. Belfast, the Ards Peninsular and, we discovered, the NE counties of the Republic are also well within reach. What made this stay really stand out from all the other cottages we've ever visited, though, was the hospitality of David and Sharon. No-one could have been more friendly or helpful, whilst being respectful of our privacy.There are many aspects of that week which will live long in our memories. But, whilst the places we have visited will inevitably blur over time, their outstanding kindness will certainly not be forgotten. Thank you so much!

    Hi Caroline thank you for the kind words. Really glad you enjoyed your stay, you really packed a lot into the week and as you said it went out with a bang. Lovely meeting you and hopefully see you back again sometime Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our week at Glebe cottage."

    David and Sharon were very welcoming and helpful. The welcome pack was very much appreciated and very thoughtful. Really can’t recommend this cottage enough. There is a good local shop and lovely restaurant in Rathfriland about a 5 minute drive away. If you book I’m sure you will have a great stay with fantastic hosts.

    Hi Kathryn thank you for your lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay and so glad you have booked again for 2024. Thanks again and see you next year Property Owner

  • "We spent two wonderful weeks in Glebe Farm Cottage and loved every minute of it."

    It contains all you need for a comfortable stay with none of what you don't. We had not stayed in Northern Ireland before but have returned home wanting more. The wee south east corner is full of stunning beauty, contrasting landscapes and charming villages. The Mourne Mountains and coast are beautiful plus we were there at such a pretty time of year. Vivid green, electric yellow from the fattest and most fulsome Gorse ever seen, blossom and blue bells. Quiet roads and almost no commercialism. Book this holiday home for one of the best holidays you'll ever have in a very special part of the UK with kind generous hosts who want to add to your experience.

    The cottage is next to the owner's farm and we loved seeing the animals, including alpacas, out in the fields. The hens were very entertaining too. There are numerous forests, parks, beaches etc within easy reach of the cottage.

    Watching the livestock became a favourite pastime. We liked the seclusion/peacefulness without it being too remote. The owners were friendly and very informative, interesting to talk to. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would recommend this property to our friends and family.

  • "I booked this very last minute, David met us on arrival."

    The pictures don't do the cottage justice, it was spotlessly clean, spacious, David and Sharon had thought of everything and equipped the cottage very well. Arrival hamper was a lovely touch filled with Homemade wheaten, eggs from their organic farm, real butter, real tayto and the most delicious hand made chocolate fudge. Nothing was too much trouble during our stay, we had a tour of the farm on the last day which I found very interesting and got pics with one of the alpacas. I would highly recommend a stay here and wish David and Sharon the very best for the future. Super hosts, thanks for your great hospitality. See you again

As the evening cools, make your way into the conservatory, where you can appreciate the lovely outlook towards the hen farm with chickens and alpacas roaming in the surrounding fields, it’s simply idyllic.

After a day of exploring, freshen up with a hot shower before catching your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Head into the local town, where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at Loft 56, grab a light bite from The Homeland Diner Café, stock up on essentials at the convenience store, or order in fish and chips, Chinese and Indian cuisine to dine in the comfort of Glebe Farm Cottage.
