2019 Award Winners HIDEAWAY OF THE YEAR 2019

Dunnanelly Country House, Crossgar, Co Down


Everyone loves the idea of a hideaway, and this is one of our most popular awards. Whether it’s the establishments itself which offers that sense of privacy and seclusion, or its location, there is something very appealing about a place that you can disappear to and escape everyday pressures.

Although it is just three miles from Downpatrick, Sally King’s gorgeous Georgian-style house lies secluded in gardens, fields and woodland, with views of the Mourne Mountains to the south. Offering all the benefits of a Georgian house with the comfort of mod cons too, it would make a wonderful base for experiencing the St Patrick Story and exploring this beautiful county. The six bedrooms are beautifully furnished with great attention to detail and every comfort you could wish for - and the Kings also take pride in sourcing the best local products for breakfast, with Sally’s jams among the treats, made with home-grown fruit. An absolute gem.
