Where do I start, found Armitage in October 2016' fell in love with the house so beautiful renovated, everything of highest standards, booked for 12 first two weeks July 2017. Such comfortable beds, three great spacious bathrooms (everything in house spacious) spent evenings in kitchen enjoying view and playing cards. Bedrooms lovely. Michael did all in his power to make our stay wonderful.
Bus stop at door and cost £17 for two adults 4 children to travel anywhere in N.I. On bus for day.
Decent walk into town centre, was very glad we didn't stay in centre, Armitage perfect location.
The back garden was maybe my favorite part, made me think secret Garden, three levels, grandchildren played ParKor ,and football, loved it.
Another lovely touch was fresh wheaten bread and soda bread, fresh milk to welcome us.
Have to mention Harbor shop on corner, grandkids were there every day, and was great when needing an ingredient. Surprised ourselves that we didn't eat out once, kitchen so great and well equipped we just enjoyed staying in.
I have already recommended to friends wanting to go to Ireland. Hopefully also we will be back, maybe by the time 10 different friends have been, I'll get free weekend
First holiday I haven't wanted to go home from.
Our Family of 9 (4 adults and 5 children) stayed here for the past two weeks on a vacation from Canada. This house, location and Micheal (the owner) far exceeded our expectation!! We will not forget this vacation! The kids fell in love with this house!! It is beautifully done with lots of room for everyone! We enjoyed swimming in the sea and hiking the Mourne Mountains! The views are amazing and the kids loved loved playing in the backyard!! A short walk to town but we couldn't wait to get back to "our" house! would definitely recommend to any and everyone!!
Had a lovely weekend with 10 others in this house. It is beautifully decorated, with loads and loads of space. Perfect location also. 5*
My family booked this house for a weekend, Mike was very helpful throughout the booking process and the house is amazing! The photo's don't do the house justice, house is very spacious and finished to a very high standard. The kitchen is amazing and excellent for large families. The location is close enough to the town centre without having all the noise that comes with it! The views are spectacular! If you want the perfect get away in Newcastle you should definitely book here. We hope to see you again soon.
Very well appointed and spacious holiday home in a great location. Close to the town, shops, pubs and restaurants. The house is very well equipped, recently renovated and made a fantastic base for our large family group. The bedrooms are large and the 3 bath/shower rooms and downstairs WC meant that nobody got in each other's way. The fresh bread and milk left for us was a nice touch. The setting, close to the waterfront, is beautiful and the views across the bay from the bedrooms are fantastic, especially in the morning as the sun rises in front of the house.
Overall, a fantastic and luxurious property in a great location.
I stayed here in August for a Friday and Saturday night with my extended family. The owner contacted me beforehand and was very welcoming and accommodating with check in times. The house itself is in a really good location, which meant we could walk to bars and restaurants easily. This was really handy as it meant we didn't need to spend money on taxis or have someone drive.
Inside the house is really nicely decorated. The furniture is modern and the beds are comfy. My family are pretty fussy about cleanliness so it was a big positive for us that the house was spotless. As well as the kitchen/dining room there is a large living room with a wood burning stove. The views from the rooms facing out from the front of the house over the water are great.
I'm sure it is not always possible but as there were no guests staying there the day we left the owner/housekeeper were also very laid back when it came to what time we checked out, which made a nice change from staying in hotels!
We would definitely stay again and hopefully will be back soon!
