Adgang for gæster
Visitors access the cottage from their own gateway, allowing on site parking. There is plenty of external space, which opens onto a fenced area with chickens & hens ( who are very entertaining). The garden includes drying lines next to the organic vegetable garden, accessed by the owners. The whole area is now enclosed with a fence for child safety, but adult visitors are welcome to sit beside the river.

Vistors are made very welcome to talk to us about the innovative form of construction in "Hempcrete". Also many visiting children enjoy collecting eggs & looking at the compost heaps etc. There are plenty of opportunities to spot kingfishers, herrons, even an otter has been seen on the river. We're very keen to share our knowledge of the locality & have good maps of walks in The Mourne Mountains, local beaches etc
