About this listing

This lodge is one of the gateways to Colebrooke Park, one of Northern Ireland's most important and historic stately homes which was recently renovated and refurbished by the present Viscount and Viscountess Brookeborough.

There is abundant wildlife including red squirrels, kingfishers, otters, pine martens and woodpeckers and even a deer hide for watching deer close up.

Other Things to Note
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding, and recommend you read the information in the Guest Book in the property
We ask that you leave the property in a clean and tidy condition upon departure. All equipment, utensils etc must be left clean and the property must be left clean and tidy at the end of the hire period.
All breakages and damage must be reported to the House Manager immediately so that they can be rectified. All breakages and damage are the legal responsibility of the Hirer and the cost of repair or replacement must be paid.
From Mar 16 - 29, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
About the Host, Irish Landmark
Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
