Pine Tree Hollow Glamping

 Set in a secluded rural setting bordered by a row of 100 year old Scots pine trees in Leitrim, Co Down, Pine Tree Hollow Glamping encompasses all that is important to owner Bridie Smyth. Providing nature, heritage, wildlife, excellent local tourist facilities and the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends while staying somewhere a little bit different, Pine Tree Hollow Glamping is a perfect base for exploring the stunning Mourne/Slieve Croob area and livelier towns of Newcastle and Castlewellan. We are a small site so can offer a more authentic glamping experience for our guests who must bring their own sleeping bags for their stay but will enjoy a comfortable nights sleep in one of our 3 cabins, all with differing but unique styles, inside and out, including their own spacious outdoor area which includes an outdoor kitchen, fire pit and picnic area.

Our communal areas include The Shack (covered barbecue/ cooking/ dining area), 2 shared wet rooms (shower/ toilet) and tourist information and honesty shop which overlook our animal paddocks.

PLEASE NOTE- single sex groups of 8 or more only accepted as a whole site booking.
