Behold Tullyquilly Cottage, where you'll enjoy nature, animals and the splendour of a lost way of life. You'll never find another like it, and you'll never forget your time here.

The heart of this rural smallholding is a renovated, traditional stone cottage, built in 1758 and located in south County Down, roughly between Belfast and Dublin. Situated in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains and only twenty minutes from the Irish Sea, the farm sits on a 2 acre site which is given over to an exotic arboretum, orchard, native woodland and an organic vegetable garden, including polytunnel.

Accommodation includes a sleeping loft for two adults and more sleeping space below on a hide-a-bed and sofa. Bringing an even bigger crowd? Ask about use of the Country Cottage, 100 meters away, separated by gardens. You will also find a fully stocked country kitchen with an aga and a generous-sized dining table. For heat, there is a wood stove, and underfloor heating throughout. The bathroom is new, clean, pine-paneled and features a shower, toilet, radiator and a sink window that looks across a field with sheep and cows grazing.

For your musical enjoyment you will find tuned upright pianos and a keyboard, vintage twelve- and six-string guitars, a banjo, mandolins, violins, cello, mountain dulcimer and xylophones. For the children, a wide range of toys are available, including an enormous set of vintage Fisher Price Little People. The most beloved feature at the property, however, is the wood-fired hot tub, hidden away in the Round Garden, surrounded by bamboo, delphinium, flowering maple and perennial sunflowers.
