The detail

For those who have ever dreamed about the good life experience then Birch Cottage at Lackan Cottage Farm can help them achieve it. This quirky self catering property is found in the Mournes near Newcastle, County Down in Northern Ireland.

Pushing the boundaries of ecotourism, self sustainability and environmental friendliness, the cottage could arguably be the greenest holiday getaway in all of Northern Ireland. Not that this takes away from the luxury that can be enjoyed in this hand crafted property set among the stunning countryside. All throughout Birch Cottage there are amazing views of the surrounding area allowing you to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of nature

Peace and tranquillity is what's on offer at the cosy and personal space that has been lovingly designed throughout. The living area with comfy sofas, books and a wood burning stove flows into the fully equipped kitchen with its wooden surfaces and rustic charm. The bedroom has a super king sized bed ensuring a lovely night's sleep. The bathroom has a shower that sits over a nice bath tub, meaning you can enjoy a peaceful soak after a day exploring your surroundings. There's also a sink and regular toilet. Guests are also provided with towels and bedlinen.

Designed with a low environmental impact as a priority, all of the materials and products used to build the cottage have been ethically produced and sourced. It is powered entirely by wind and solar power, while the wood burning stove heats the water and the under floor heating.

Set among such a beautiful backdrop getting out and about is certainly a must at Birch Cottage. The property has its own beautiful birch wood, where you can wander among the trees and soak in the calmness of nature. There's also a firepit in the wood, meaning you can gather round and sit enjoying each others' company in warmth.

The rolling drumlin hills are one way and the Mourne Mountains are the other, while there is private woodland, bogs and heather to go and explore. Those staying can also get involved on the farm by feeding the hens and enjoying the fresh produce from the gardens, while the owners - who live on site - run regular courses on things such as wood turning, basket making and off the grid living.

For those that want to venture a little further there are superb mountain biking and walking trails at the nearby Tollymore Forest Park, Castlewellan and Rostrevor. The seaside resort of Newcastle with its sandy beach is just a short drive away and also has an outdoor heated fun pool for kids and adults young at heart, while the Norman era Dundrum Castle is perfect for history lovers.
