Tory Bush Cottages are situated outside Bryansford village overlooking the northern slopes of the Mourne Mountains. Tollymore Forest Park is only metres away - location for many Film and TV shoots e.g. “The Game of Thrones”, “Dracula Untold” and “The Fall”.
Cottage 2, “Commedagh”, has a large vaulted ceiling in the living room, with an log fire and chimney rising to the roof. On one side of the sitting room there is a patio door with spectacular views of the mountains and on the other side there is a door leading to a small porch and storage cupboard that can be used as a drying room.
Either side of the fireplace are two doors, one leads to the kitchen, which is equipped with all modern appliances, the other door leads to the downstairs Bathroom.
Opposite the fireplace there are two doors leading to the two downstairs twin bedrooms both with wash hand basins.
Upstairs there is the master bedroom with a velux window which opens to amazing views of the mountains. Off this bedroom, is a shower-room with toilet and wash handbasin. Outside the cottage there is a patio with a Park style picnic bench and a small-grassed area surrounded by a beech hedge. The cottages are all WiFi enabled with Freesat TV, video and DVD; baby cots, stair gates and high chairs are also available. Walkers can reach the mountains from the cottages using our own path and quiet country road or take advantage of the local Shuttle bus drop off service that operates in the Mourne area. For cyclists, there are bicycles for hire on site with storage and wash facility for your own bike.
Tory Bush Cottages are an ideal base for exploring Northern Ireland, Belfast and the Titanic Centre is an hour away and the Giants Causeway two hours. There is lots to see and do in the local area from the new Castlewellan purpose built bike and walking trails, Murlough Beach and nature reserve, and the nearby seaside town of Newcastle with its award winning promenade, cafes, restaurants and welcoming gastro pubs.
In 2015 Tory Bush Cottages were awarded a Gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
