Luxury Self Catering Accomodation in Rural Co Down, Northern Ireland

Scion Hill Gate Lodge is situated at the top of a long tree lined avenue leading to the Gentlemans Residence, Scion Hill.  Built in 1840 for George Waugh a JP it served as a Porters Lodge for the main house. It is a listed building. 

In 2010, Scion Hills Owners, David amd Esther Ervin decided it was time to restore it and offer it as Self Catering Accomodation. They have done this by completely renovating the original building while adding an extensive new wing. This means that although the Gatelodge retains many of its original features, including High Ceilings, it also provides all those Modern Luxuries we have come to expect.

The accomodation is all on one level so there are no steps or trip hazards to negotiate. 

There are two large Double Bedrooms, one with an ensuite wetroom/bathroom and the other with its own bathroom across the hallway. All bedding and towels are supplied.

There is a spacious Entrance Hall where you will find a selection of games and books for your enjoyment. 

The kitchen and utility room are well furnished with all mod cons. There is a Dishwasher, Washing Machine, Tumble Dryer, Fridge Freezer, Oven, Hob and Microwave.

The cosy living room has comfortable sofas for you to curl up on. There is a wood burning stove, should you require a fire. All fuel can be delivered to you as required.

Outsides the views from the front of the Gatelodge are spectacular. There are many local Golf Courses and places to fish. In addition the Gatelodge is handy for all the major shopping towns. There are also many opportunities for Hillwalking on your doorstep including of course the Dromara and Mourne Mountains.

The Gatelodge  has  a private entrance and parking to one side.
