Superb luxury coastguards cottage completely rebuilt in 2016 and rated 4 star by Tourism Northern Ireland, is a perfect place to unwind in this un-spoilt part of the lower peninsula. The ground floor features open plan kitchen/dining/living with bi-fold doors opening to a west facing patio for catching the afternoon/evening sun. The upper floor has 3 well appointed bedrooms (king-size, double and single) and bathroom (walk in shower and tub). Under-floor heating, wood burner and natural stone and reclaimed timber floors make this a cosy winter or summer retreat. The property is exceptionally well appointed with sky, wi-fi, built in audio (which guests can connect to via Bluetooth), high spec kitchen, feature lighting etc and positioned opposite the slipway for immediate access to the...Superb luxury coastguards cottage completely rebuilt in 2016 and rated 4 star by Tourism Northern Ireland, is a perfect place to unwind in this un-spoilt part of the lower peninsula.
