Tollymore Forest Park
Oakleigh House Bed and Breakfast accommodation is situated 800yds from the entrance gates to Tollymore Forest Park which is approximately 2miles from Newcastle centre.
Tollymore was owned by Robert Jocelyn, 8th Earl of Roden, but was sold to the Department of Agriculture in 1930 and 1941. In 1955 it became the first state forest in Northern Ireland and was called a forest park. Situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains it offers spectacular views of the mountains and the coast at Newcastle and within the park there are numerous walks through mature woodland with stone bridges over the river, grottos, stepping stones and caves. For visitors wishing to stay a few days there are caravanning and camping sites close to the main car park.
