County Armagh, Northern Ireland

The Ideal Base for those who love the Outdoors

9 Individually designed bedrooms

Property overview

Set amidst 10 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, Upperlands Retreat is an elegantly restored 19th century mansion. The house has great charm, elegance and character which offers you, your family and friends a unique opportunity to enjoy the luxury of having a private home yet enjoying Northern Irish hospitality at its best. The house is available to hire on an exclusive basis allowing your guests to retire to one of our 9 elegantly designed bedrooms. This stunning space is conveniently located in the heart of Mid Ulster at the foothills of the Sperrin Mountains just 50 minutes from Belfast, 40 minutes from Derry and 30 minutes from Coleraine.

Accommodation

The house was built by Harry Clark as a romantic and lively family home around 1896. The individually designed bedrooms are filled with character and original features, furnished with a mixture of antiques, heirlooms and quirky pieces. Each elegant en suite bathroom features a high pressure shower while many are clad in Italian marble or have their original wooden floors. The king size beds have orthopedic mattresses and are dressed with crisp white cotton bed-linen. Eight of the bedrooms have an original fireplace with a working fire, and as Upperlands Retreat is tucked away in 10 wooded acres amongst rolling fields on the edge of the village a tranquil night’s sleep is sure to follow.

Location

Known as the "Orchard County" because of the numerous apple orchards scattered around its hundreds of acres. While it's true that Armagh suffered devastations during The Troubles, it has arrived into the 21st century with an incredible stock of historical places, including some of the most important religious sites in Ireland. Although it is small, Armagh Town was founded by Ireland's patron saint, St. Patrick, in the mid-400s, when he erected the principal seat of Christianity at St. Patrick's Church of Ireland Cathedral. To boot, the remains of Brian Boru, the most important High King of Ireland, are at rest here. Co. Armagh's countryside is a lumbering series of drumlins, flanked to the north by Lough Neagh – one of Ireland's largest lakes – and rising in the south to the 573-metre apex of Slieve Gullion, the highest point in the county.
