2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Killinchy, County Down, Northern Ireland
Our 18th century cottage has been beautifully and lovingly refurbished keeping as many of the original features as possible.
It has exposed beams throughout and a log burning stove. All modern conveniences are available.
The cottage looks over a private courtyard patio which is perfect for you to picnic or BBQ. We are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with Strangford Lough 5 steps away. It is a perfect setting for families or guests who want to completely escape from it all and enjoy life in the rural countryside.
Kennel available for our K9 guests. We don’t allow dogs in the cottage - sorry!

Thanks for a lovely couple of days in your beautiful cottage. We loved the coziness and the open log fire. The welcome of fresh eggs and homemade breads was unexpected and lovely. The setting is just stunning. We’ll be back!
