“In 1927, our great grandfather sold the land to Lord Kilmorey who turned it into a 9 hole golf course. After World War II, Lord Kilmorey decided to move the golf course up to Mourne Park where it still is today. He sold the land at Cranfield to Mr Goff and Mr Hill and the first caravans started coming here in the early 50’s. In 1983, we got the opportunity to buy it back into the Chestnutt family. From then on, we have been developing the site into what it is today.”
The Park is situated at the most southerly point of Northern Ireland with stunning views of the surrounding Mourne Mountains.
The family run park boasts the 5 star award from NITB and British holiday and Home Parks Association and has direct access to Cranfield’s sandy award winning beach.
The focal point of the Park is the Haulbowline Lighthouse built in the 1800’s, which sits in the middle of the sea. There are also the ruins of an Anglo Norman Castle within walking distance of the park.
