The five-star NITB rating reflects an ‘outstanding’ overall standard of accommodation, providing high quality levels of décor, fixtures and fittings, together with excellent standards of management efficiency and guest services.
The Georgian country house, originally completed around 1785 and sensitively restored in 2005, has been handed down through six generations.
Its original period features and antiques blend with contemporary luxuries and facilities, including six individually designed double bedrooms offering lavish en-suite accommodation.
Mature formal gardens with 40 acres of surrounding grassland also provide guests with ample walking opportunities.
Susie McCullough, NITB Business Support & Events Director said, “As a long-established highlight of a visit to county Armagh I am very pleased that the merits of Newforge House have been recognised by a five-star quality rating. Both the house and the grounds provide visitors with a whole range of great experiences.
“I applaud the owners John and Lou Mathers for their ongoing dedication to the visitor, their commitment to outstanding quality and customer service and their determination to ensure the quality they deliver keep visitors coming back.”
The NITB Quality Grading Scheme launched in 2011 and is designed to provide visitors with information on the quality of the accommodation they can expect whilst assisting operators to maintain and continually improve the quality of their offering.
