Over 100 people have been to stay here in Birch Cottage now, and we’re delighted at the reaction from visitors. We have learned a lot about what makes this place special to visitors, and focused on making those things even better. Where else can you find your own private woodland, horses outside the door, and the spectacular Mourne Mountains as a backdrop? We are Green Tourism Gold rated, and Tourism Northern Ireland 4 Star rated.
