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. Built in 1876, White Gate Lodge is ideal for a family of up to 2 adults and 4 children.
White Gate Lodge is not just another rental cottage on the web, it is also our very special holiday home. We maintain a very personal interest in this property, ensuring that you relish the experience of staying here as much as we do. Many people who have rented White Gate Lodge as strangers have subsequently become friends and seek to return again and again. Nothing pleases us more.
White Gate Lodge is only 1 and a half hours drive up from the Dublin Airport and barely a 45 minutes drive from Belfast City Airport. It is less than 10 minutes from the nearby seaside resort of Newcastle, County Down. It is superbly located for exploring the whole of the Mountains of Mourne and beyond.
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. A summer house is available for the sole use by guests to enjoy the views in all weathers.
If you like adventure activities – the Tollymore National Outdoor Centre is literally over the back fence. If you like walking in the forest or in the mountains – walks ranging from minutes to hours start just 50 feet from the front door. Horse riding available locally. The famous Royal County Down Golf course – less than 10 minutes drive.
