  • Description

    Description

    Two years ago we bought 3 acres of wilderness in an abandoned airfield. There are beautiful views of the Mourne Mountains and the coast is only a 10 minute walk away. Our dream is to create a sustainable creative space, connected to nature. We have erected a polytunnel which is now full of fresh vegetables, planted an orchard and a soft fruit garden and acquired some chickens, ducks and geese. New to small holding, we have so much to learn and are keen to learn anything our guests may be able to share.

    We both work part time as circus artists, so are around the place part of most days.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful area, close to the sea, near castles and quaint villages. The beach and the pub are 10 minutes walk away. The nearest town is about 8 miles. We love local history and are happy to share this with you. We're also passionate about nature and wildlife and can show you some fabulous places to walk or just to relax. For Game of Thrones fans, there are several filming locations nearby. Both of us work part time, when we are not able to show you around we will drop you off where you can get a bus or take you into town.
