Wake to a view of the beautiful birch woods outside your window, and enjoy the peace and quiet. Birch Cottage is finished using natural, locally sourced materials and kept warm and comfy by the power of the sun. Here you are surrounded by birdsong, clean air, and wonderful views. Walk in the woods, feed the hens, and enjoy fresh produce from our gardens.

With some of the most stunning countryside in Northern Ireland on your doorstep – the Mourne Mountains, Tollymore and Castlewellan forest parks, Newcastle beach and the stunning Silent Valley are just a few minutes drive away. Birch cottage is part of Lackan Cottage Farm, and is off grid – we make all our own power here on site using sun and wind. Wood fuel for the cottage is also grown on site. We are unique in offering carbon neutral accommodation.

Staying in Birch Cottage
Here at Lackan Cottage Farm our ethos is one of living lightly on the land, making our own power, using a sustainable source of wood fuel for heating, minimising waste, and growing much of our own food. A stay in Birch Cottage is a chance to unwind, sample that lifestyle, and so we ask that guests respect the ethos of the project during their stay here. The cottage is powered entirely from our own solar pv and wind turbine installation, and we are entirely off grid for electricity, so ask guests to respect this in their usage. Hot water and heating are provided by solar thermal panels, and a small woodburner, that also has a hotplate for a kettle or slow cooker. No other boiler is needed – the cottage is carbon neutral in use.

Opposite the cottage you will find our own birch woodland, in which you are welcome to walk and relax. You’ll find the horses grazing in the field outside, and they are always pleased to say hello to visitors. The vegetable garden is open to visitors, and we make a selection of seasonal fruit, vegetables, eggs and meat available to guests.
