Families, walkers, cyclists, fisher people, and golfers are especially welcome at our comfortable self catering holiday rentals just off the A1 near Banbridge, Co Down. ‘Lisnagade’ (sleeps 4) and ‘Coolnacran’ (sleeps 6) offer ideal surroundings in which to unwind and provide an ideal base from which to explore the delights of Co. Armagh and Co. Down – even day-trips to Belfast (Titanic) and the Giants’ Causeway.

Our accommodation won the Lux Life Resorts and Retreats Award for Best Self-Catering in County Down in 2020 (Lisnagade), 2021 (Coolnacran), 2022 (both cottages) and 2023 (Lisnagade).

Our Welcome Basket of delicious home-baked wheaten bread, tea, filter coffee, orange juice, milk, sugar, locally produced butter and Evelyn’s preserves with perhaps a piece of traybake will give you a good start. And see our Optional Breakfast Package to save frantic shopping on arrival!

Enjoy a wander along our beautiful Woodland and Boundary Walks (1.9/2.5 Kms) which lead you around the estate past historic Coolnacran Rath and Johnston’s Fort. Then, luxuriate in our King sized duvets with 300 thread count covers!
