14th Jan 2017: Happy New Year to all our visitors. We had a great 2016 with steady bookings and we look forward to 2017 and all that it may hold. Andrea is our housekeeper and has proved herself to be a real asset to the business. The house is ready for the annual NITB inspection and ready to welcome visitors old and new,
15th Nov 2014 Here we are at the end of another summer season. Its been a strange year for us with several unforseen problems. The TV on the blink and a leaking shower causing difficulties for some of our visitors. We do apologise for any and all inconvenience and thank those who bore it with understanding.
The TV has been replaced and a complete new shower unit installed. These problems made us take a good look around the rest of the property and as a result we have embarked on a refurbishment replacing worn or out of date items and refreshing the paintwork. I'm sure our regular visitors will enjoy the changes and hopefully the new look will be appreciated by all our visitors.
We have just had our annual inspection by Northern Ireland Tourest Board and it went very well. It was observed that we provide a very good level of accommodation with nice personal touches and we have retained our 3 Star *** rateing. Yippee !
10th Jan 2015 Very encouraging that enquiries have starting to come in for this year all ready. With the Irish Open in Newcastle as well as several other events it should be a busy summer. Almost completed the painting and renovations only the new stair carpet to go down and were all set.
17th March 2015 'HAPPY St PATRICKS DAY'

Have had a terrific summer season with bookings for short breaks going on right through. Nov looking quiet just now so we'll get a breather and time to re group for the Tourist Board inspection in Dec. All our visitors seemed to enjoy their time in our house so we are all happy.
