Newcastle Cottages, County Down

Newcastle, the gateway to the Kingdom of Mourne, has a proud and colourful history stretching back over 400 years. Immortalised in the words of the Percy French song, "Where the Mountains of Mourne Sweep Down to the Sea" it has grown during the past four centuries from being an insignificant fishing village to its position today as the premier tourist resort in Northern Ireland.

 

The key factor in Newcastle's popularity has always been its unique location. Bordered on one side by the calm waters of Dundrum Bay and on the other side by the sweeping panorama of the Mourne Mountains.

White Gate Lodge

White Gate Lodge is in an outstanding location on the perimeter of Tollymore Forest Park with views over the Mourne Mountains. The Gate Lodge was the western Gate Lodge to the former Earl of Roden Estate. The estate was sold to the Forestry Service at Tollymore Forest in the mid 20th Century.

 

It’s a house steeped in history, built in 1876, and being a listed building is constantly being maintained to a very high standard both inside and out. The gardens have been personally landscaped, with various seating areas, to make the most of the views of the Mourne mountains.
