“Beautiful cottage....Great location.....Lovely owner!”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Without a doubt one of the nicest cottages I have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, cosy, warm, great location and views, quite and so comfortable with all the equipment you will ever need. Walks up to the Mourne Mountains from the back door. Anne, the owner, could not have been friendlier or more accommodating (even after I had kept her waiting....Sorry Anne) . Would highly recommend this cottage to any and everyone.

Rose, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. I'm so pleased both you and your sister and of course the handsome Baxter,enjoyed your time in Newcastle and that the cottage provided everything you needed. It was a pleasure to have such lovely ladies come to stay, and all the neighbours commented that Baxter was such a beautiful dog. You are always welcome at Widows Row. Maybe I will see you again in the future. Take Care.

Louis & Gail, apologies for not replying to your review sooner. The summer season was hectic and there appears to be no let up as the year progresses, which is always a good sign. I was delighted with you review and so glad you found the cottage to your liking and even more delighted that I'll be seeing you again in 2015. It was a pleasure having such a wonderful family to stay. Take care and see you next year!

Christine,
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for the cottage. I'm so glad you and Jon and of course little Jason enjoyed your stay. I'm sure the fabulous weather you had during your holiday helped also. I've still got the lovely photo you sent me of the sunrise at 5:30am, it was truly beautiful. Take Care and who knows, maybe I will see you again in the future.
Kindest Regards,
Anne.

“Absolutely fabulous.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A cosy comfortable extremely well equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need including an extremely welcoming host in Anne who went as far as hand delivering the tastiest sausage rolls in Northern Ireland. The views are stunning. We had a fantastic week in this extremely homely cottage & it was amazing to be able to lie in bed in the morning and look out over the sea.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this modern and very well equipped cottage. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. It's a great location for walking in the Mourne mountains and we'd definitely recommend it!
