Time to immerse completely in nature

We start from an ethos that nature should be part of your daily life but sometimes you just need to make an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, time to immerse completely in nature.
And we help with this too.

Wellderness HQ is the very beautiful Bryansford Cottage, a stunning country house located at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. We received our NI Tourism accreditation in 2019 and have been hosting guests since then.

The perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries.

Our location in mature gardens just a short walk from Tollymore means that guests can be immersed in nature and feel the health and wellbeing benefits from being in this beautiful place.

We offer the perfect place to get away from it all in luxurious accommodation, surrounded by nature. It is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries.

Retreat features

If you wish to host your own retreat, we can provide a hassle-free service, taking care of your
guests so you are free to focus on delivering the best possible experience.


We can provide bespoke retreat experiences for guests who want to get away from it all. We can tailor activities to include forest or beach walks, forest bathing, hiking, cold water swimming, natural movement and meditation. Our studio is the perfect location for group work or classes such as pilates and yoga. Evenings can be spent taking in the sunset over the Mournes or relaxing in front of the wood burning stove.


We offer accommodation for up to six retreat guests in shared ensuite accommodation in Bryansford Cottage.

In 2021 we will be adding space for a further six guests in our barn conversion, conveniently located adjacent to the main house.

We can also offer a further en suite bedroom for a course facilitator if required.


We provide freshly prepared and healthy food – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We are happy to tailor our offering to your needs – we also work with retreat organisers to ensure that the guests have the very best in food and drink to support their retreat experience.

Bryansford Cottage was the perfect location… for so many reasons. The breathtaking nature within walking distance, unique and comfortable accommodation plus amazing hosts who really ‘got’ what I wanted to deliver on the retreat and went the extra mile to help facilitate that and added a lot of extra value.”

"From planning the workshop to the actual day, the attention to detail was second to none. The studio was perfectly set up for our Pilates class, looking out to the Mournes and the nearby fields. Guests were greeted with juice shots of ginger and apple and at the break enjoying tea/coffee and an amazing fresh fruit platter. Everyone left the workshop feeling relaxed and recharged."

– Will & Izzy, Core Mvmnt, hosted a Wellness Workshop at Bryansford Cottage.

This beautiful venue… is great to use as a learning venue because of the unspoilt stunning views of the Mournes … which are really conducive to helping people getting into that creative, problem solving space. Delegates were able to wonder around the large garden for some of the learning activities and we were able to use Tollymore Forest as it is just a 1 min walk from Bryansford Cottage. Delicious snacks and lunch were provided all day and Mary’s attentiveness allowed me to fully focus on my guests. I found this venue to be unique, atmospheric, relaxed and comfortable, ideal for the programmes and events that I provide.”

– Olivia Cleland, Coach Practictioner and Owner of Actual Impact, who hosted a two day coaching workshop at Bryansford Cottage.
