    About this property

    Annacloy Cottage - County Down Rural Retreat

    Annacloy cottage is a cosy, newly-renovated two-bedroom cottage in rural County Down. Nestled in the small village of Annacloy, around 10 minutes from Downpatrick, 5 minutes from Crossgar and 30 minutes from Belfast. The cottage has views of the Mourne mountains and is surrounded by fields, has its own garden and is a few metres from a forest with trails and an outdoor yoga platform and seating. The cottage is on one level, with a separate kitchen, combined lounge/dining area, private bathroom and two double bedrooms. An ideal base to explore the surrounding area or settle into after a longer day venturing further afield. The location is quiet, set on a private lane away from the road, surrounded by greenery. Your hosts live in the house opposite, with their two small children and no pets. Annacloy is a small, rural village. The house is situated on a private lane off the Rann road. The larger village of Crossgar is around a 5 minute drive away, with cafes shops and restaurants. The larger town of Downpatrick is around 10 minutes drive away. The local area has much to offer, including: - Local beaches and coastal path (sandy beaches around 20 minutes drive away); - Castle Ward, National Trust property and home to Game of Thrones Tours (part of the series was filmed here); - Inch Abbey (also Game of Thrones Tour site) - Clearsky Adventure Centre Northern Ireland (hire canoes, bikes and more); - Strangford Canoe Trail; - Strangford lough and surrounds; - Walks along the Quoile river (less then 10 minutes drive away); - 35 minutes drive to Belfast (explore places like St. George's Market and the Titanic Centre); - Around 25 minutes drive to the seaside town of Newcastle - also the foot of Slieve Donard, for hiking in the Mournes; - Around 25 minutes to Tollymore Forest Park and Castlewellan Forest Park (ideal for walking, running, cycling); - 10 minutes to Downpatrick (the site of Downe Cathedral). You can walk to both the local shop and small local pub (around 20 minutes along country roads). The Rann road itself is quiet, and is ideal for walks. It is necessary to have a vehicle to get into Downpatrick or Crossgar direct from the cottage. However, a walk to the main road will take you to bus stops that lead to both Downpatrick and Belfast.
