Birch Cottage is hidden on our organic smallholding.It sits in the unique County Down landscape of rolling drumlin hills. Overlooking woodland, bog and heather to the west contrasting with Mourne Mountains to the east. The cottage is a quiet haven that invites guests to engage more deeply with the landscape and our heritage by taking a small stake in its conservation. Our guests tell us that being able to walk straight private woodland is something that they value very highly.
Small but beautifully made to be a natural, healthy environment we’ve created a cosy, personal space that has the highest environmental credentials but which doesn’t compromise visitor comfort. This is what makes Birch Cottage one of the few cottages in Northern Ireland to hold a Green Tourism Gold award and a 4 star Tourism Northern Ireland rating. It is also the first in Ireland to be Green Key accredited.
