About Us

Bear Cottage is ideally situated in the countryside near Castlewellan Forest Park and a perfect base for visiting the Northern Ireland's Mourne Mountains and seaside town of Newcastle. 

This cute Co.Down self-catering house is a 120 year old railway cottage positioned in the breathtaking valley of the ’’Windy Gap'' in the Slieve Croob Mountain range of The Kingdom of The Mourne Mountains. It has been lovingly restored by it’s owners Ruth and Aaron and now offers cosy cottage accommodation for up to 5 people with 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, kitchen, bathroom and large garden with private parking.  In the summer months, you can enjoy the beautiful views from the garden, whilst in the winter, you admire the scenery from your armchair beside an open fire!  It is both comfortable and enchanting which charms the hearts of all who visit.


With forests, mountains, lakes and beaches nearby as well as proximity to St Patrick’s Trail, this is a great location for sight-seeing. 

Everyone Welcome!

Bear Cottage is particulary popular for couples, families and friends who love outdoor activities and we welcome your four legged furry friend to join in the fun too! 

There is a secure lock up facility for bikes and equipment.
