“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had another fabulous stay in Kribben Cottages and I would highly recommend them as comfortable, modern, spotlessly clean and cozy holiday accomodation. The cottages are very well equipped with all the cooking facilities you could possibly need for a family. Bathrooms were a highlight for our family - lovely showers and bath!!
We were able to walk up the hill at the back of the house and on through the high mournes to Newcastle for cake and coffee which was an added bonus - so a great location for hill walkers.

Hi Guys thanks for the great review and of course for staying with us again. We are really lucky to be situated in the beautiful Mourne Mountains with so many great walks and hikes right on our doorstep. Maybe on your next visit you can climb Slieve Binnian, I'll supply the cake and coffee on your return! Regards Myrtle

“Cutest Cottages in Mourne”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Visited the cottages a few times before however I got to spend my birthday here in December for a weekend and loved it.

These cottages are absolutely gorgeous and I can't recommend them enough. Modern with a homely feel, they are perfect for anyone looking a weekend away!

“Peace and luxury”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I had the privilege of being invited to stay with my friends who were visiting from England.
I loved it. It is comfortable and luxurious. The wood burning stove was lit and it was so cozy. The weather being Northern Ireland was changeable!
Everything about the cottages is wonderful. The accommodation, the views, closeness to amenities. Even though you are in the countryside it is only a few minutes by car, or a little longer walking into Annalong.
I will most definitely be back. I've been raving about to all my friends!

“A gem of a place”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautiful setting . Houses fit for a king. The owner was a pleasure to deal with.
She could not have done any more . The place is secure and handy to get up into the mountains for a good ramble. Have already recommended the place to others. We are planning to return next year.

“A weekend break you wish would last longer”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Absolutely beautifully designed cottage. Big spacious rooms and fabulous bathrooms.
Well suited for large family group. Great view of the Slieve donard mountain. We went hiking one day and it was lovely to get back to such a cosy cottage with an open fire. Loads to do in the area and there is nice restaurants nearby in Newcastle. Would highly recommend to go at any time of year, not very suitable for younger children but suited for teenagers etc. Wifi available.
