“Fantastic views, lovely modern comfortable accomadation”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This beautiful extend gatehouse,is only 3 miles from the dual carriage way,gaining easy access to all the major towns and city's . It only took us 20 minutes to get to Lisburn. 30 minutes to Belfast, and 15 to Banbridge .We stay in lots of rentals and this one is best of all. ...We would recommend this property. It's got a lovely walk in shower.a very easy to light wood burning stove.a great spacious equipped kitchen to cook and dine.and to sit in the lounge bay window over looking all the lovely country side was breathtaking. We are planning to deff go back soon.

“Scionhill Gatelodge a home away from home”
Reviewed 28 January 2013 for a stay in May 2012

We Aussies found this lovely accommodation while planning to visit Ireland to see my fathers property in Fedney. The Gatelodge, tucked away among rolling hills with unbelievable views provided easy access to not only the property we were visiting but it was also a central point to take day trips to all the surrounding tourist destinations in County Down, visit relatives in Banbridge, attend a party in Belfast and even head south to Dublin. With all the amenities you could want and so beautifully appointed we found it a home away from home. On arrival at the lodge we were met and welcomed by a very friendly and helpful Esther, the owner, who made us feel like we were old friends rather than guests. Can't wait to return!
