Unexpected luxury - a hidden gem at the foot of the Mournes
We stayed for a 5 day break whilst visiting family nearby. Lurganconary Farm has two cottages - Plumtree and Sand. The photos and description on their website really do not do the accommodation justice! The cottages are immaculately refurbished, very tastefully furnished and have everything you might need (or forget to pack) - right down to waterproofs, umbrellas, board games and hot water bottles! Underfloor heating throughout, top quality fitted furniture, extensive kitchen items and basic provisions (tea, coffee, sugar and a very 'welcome' welcome basket). The wood fired stove was a real treat and we enjoyed the view across fields to the local church and primary school. The bathrooms were also great (that underfloor heating particularly enjoyable) and the showers hot and very powerful. Our hostess was very friendly and thorough in her tour of the facilities. The two cottages are accessed via a private lane with a remote controlled gated entrance - so very secure and private. The cottage was spotlessly clean on our arrival and rental included all bedding and towels, which was very handy on our 'hand luggage only' trip. Only a few minutes' drive to the beach or the mountains. A real 'home away from home' if our own home were only this nice!
