Set in the heartlands of St. Patrick's country, the Mill Barn is a distinctive and luxurious four star self catering cottage, part of the old mill village of Tobermoney and adjacent to Mill Cottage. The 370 year old stone cottage has been sensitively restored in 2007 using traditional materials including pitch pine flooring, stone flags and oak beams and is very comfortably and tastefully furnished throughout. It sleeps two in a spacious upstairs bedroom with breathtaking views across the rolling countryside.
Step in through the large front door and experience the cosy quaint living room with its reclaimed pitch pine floor boards and contoured walls. A central feature is the original 370 year old chimney breast constructed from hand made brick. A Jotul wood burning stove now sits in the original fireplace opening on a hearth of reclaimed stone flags. The walls are painted with distemper, an original paint which allows the lime rendered walls to breathe. The cottage is tastefully decorated with cosy Indian checks and raspberry red coloured damask soft furnishings. The farmhouse kitchen and four country chairs sit beneath a shuttered window. The sofa pulls out into a four foot sofabed to accommodate an extra two guests. There is a chest of drawers in the living room for additional storage for guests.
The Mill barn is the only self catering cottage that we know ofin the locality with an upstairs bedroom and the beautiful views that this affords.
The cottage is an ideal base for exploring the County Down coastline, St. Patrick’s country, the Mourne Mountains and Strangford Lough, one of the most important marine sites in Europe. Close to the restaurants and coffee shops in Downpatrick, and surrounded by Game of Thrones locations. An idyllic peaceful setting- why not come and see for yourself?
Outdoor garden furniture provided, table and chairs.
