We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of July and we could not have asked for a better house, location or host. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed and much more such as fridge/freezer, washing machine, hair drier, DVD player, iron and even a laptop, and was the perfect size for us, (two adults and a toddler). We were especially grateful for the little necessities Jay provided us with such as washing powder/liquid, cleaning products, shower gel etc, not all holiday rental homes supply these requiring you to bring your own. Other little things that were left for us were fresh milk, some butter, wheaton bread (which was very nice) and a large collection of DVDs that came in handy after coming home from a long and tiring day out. The beds were comfortable, particularly the sofa bed which was actually really super comfy so much so that we had difficulties getting our son out off it in the mornings. The shower was easy to use and stayed at the temperature you selected (some showers can be dodgy). Convenience store was only a couple of minutes away and the main street was 10 minutes. If I had to make a small recommendation it would be to maybe have a little bolt on the bathroom door to stop wandering toddlers from wandering in. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have recommended La Petite House to a few of our family and friends. We would love to visit again next year and perhaps stay a little longer, god willing of course. Thank you for a lovely trip.

“GREAT WEEKEND IN NEWCASTLE”
Reviewed 1 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a great two night stay at La Petite House. The family where all extremely friendly and welcoming. Jay was also especially very helpful. The house was comfortable and had everything you needed. The location was nice too only a short walk to town and in a quiet neighbourhood.We both enjoyed the town, surrounding mourne mountains and the weather was great too. It was a perfect weekend away, we'll be back again!

“All you could want - lovely!”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A little house but really well set up and we had plenty of room for three of us. They have provided just about everything and it was really clean. Lovely family too. Really welcoming, particularly to our little boy. He loved it! Great communication and easy to get any info we needed. We made an error with the booking and it was resolved with no fuss. Would definitely recommend.

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend in February and I must say it quite nice and cosy. It's very clean and equipped with all utensils. The owners were very friendly and helpful and always at hand if anything was needed. Was very easy to find and quite close to the town center with aprox 10minute walk. I've stayed in newcastle quite a lot and one of the nicest places we have stayed. Owner also has a file a fax filled with useful place and contacts and detailed maps of the mourne walks. There is a nice cosy comfy feel to the little house with good WiFi and comfy bed and sofa. Kitchen can be a bit chilly but there is a small heater if needed.
