This stunning cottage on the shores of Strangford Lough, combines luxury with cosiness and comfort.

Tracey and Joe are committed to the highest standards of accommodation and invite their guests to feel at home with them. Guests can use the herbs and vegetables when in season from the garden and the fresh organic eggs from their hens of different varieties.

There is a relaxed and welcoming feel to this Cottage and Guests will experience this as soon as they arrive. There will be some traditional breads, jam, butter and our hens' eggs for Guests upon arrival.

The cottage is a 18th century converted stable block with exposed beams and brickwork, wood burning stove, open plan kitchen living area very well appointed and tastefully decorated. Modern wet room and two double bed rooms one with twin beds and one with a four-poster bed. Own front door and private parking with courtyard patio area. Separate washroom next door for wet gear and with washing machine, dryer and freezer. Cottage is self contained and has own courtyard patio area and parking for 2 cars.

We have been working in tourism for 20 years and we love meeting new guests and to hear their stories etc.

I run traditional Irish bread making classes on a frequent basis. Upcoming dates are posted on my webpage - Private sessions are offered for groups of 5 or more. The quiet country roads are perfect for some peace and quiet. You'll not meet another car on the roads.

We are 30 minutes from Belfast City and 90 minutes from Dublin. There are beautiful walks right outside the gate. We are spoiled for choice with bistro and fine dining establishments. In the village of Killinchy, there is a coffee shop and two convenience stores, one with a petrol station and an excellent restaurant and off licence. We also have and a lovely craft/ gift shop. For those who prefer local fresh fruit and vegetables we have a great farm shop and local butcher.
