“Superb in every way”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Millstone Cottage was the ideal base for our first holiday in the Mournes. The cottage is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and equipped to a very high standard with the biggest, most comfortable bed we've ever slept in!
The views are astonishing from every side of the cottage, and only a mile from the main coast road. Myrtle & John made us feel very welcome and as if nothing would be too much trouble. Everyone has mentioned it in the reviews so far, but the home made scones & buns really were great with a wee cup of tea after we'd unpacked!
Our whole family loved this place and would visit again in a flash. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

“Beautiful location and amazing cottage!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just back from a few nights at Kribben Cottages- beautiful and peaceful location. Great base for exploring local area. We were so impressed when we arrived and realised how child friendly the site was- secure electric gates and a children's play area- our children (age 4 & 1) just loved all the green space! Myrtle had left lovely scones/ buns and the cottage inside had everything we needed and was kitted out to a really high standard. Will definitely be back.

“Perfect cottage in every way”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely relaxing and peaceful stay in Millstone cottage. The cottage was perfect in every way, it was very comfortable and finished to the highest standard. This is such an idyllic setting, with views of both the sea and the mountains. There are so many lovely walks on the doorstep. We received a very warm welcome on arrival with lots of information on the local area and we really enjoyed our home baked treats. We can't recommend Kribben Cottages enough and we will certainly be returning in the future.

“Diamond in the Mournes”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottages are quite simply stunning. Luxuriously furnished and immaculately clean, Millstone was a perfect location for a relaxing retreat. A warm welcome awaits with the really nice touch of home baked treats on arrival. I cannot speak highly enough about the amenities, location and value for money the cottages provide, there is something for everyone, including WiFi for hard to please teenagers. Suffice to say, we will be back.

Had an absolutely idyllic weekend at Kribben Cottages. The cottages are perfect in every way. The location is like a little piece of paradise and the cottages themselves are well equipped, super comfortable and picture perfect. Myrtle the owner, made us feel so welcome and was a wonderful host. Would highly recommend! We would definitely love to go back.

“Perfection”

I would strongly recommend staying in Kribben cottages when looking for self catering accommodation in the Mourne Area.
We could not have asked for any more...
- Cottage was ideal with amazing attention to detail: Underfloor heating, views to both the sea and the mountains, all necessary utensils, wood burning stove, outdoor table and bench, superkingsize bed, great showers and bath - even books to read.
- Great hosts: The owner greater us at the cottage on arrival and had the fire lit, Christmas decorations (including a tree!), wheaten bread and mince pies and informed us of what there was to do in the area.
- Location: Again...perfect. A 5 mins walk from the door took us into the Mourne area where we were able to walk/run for hours on end. 10 Mins drive took us to the centre of Newcastle for walks on the beach and 3 mins drive took us into Annalong.
We loved it so much, we have already request to book the cottage for next christmas.
