“A Class Act”

We stopped at The Old Rectory for a week. The place is a delight, it has 4 bedrooms, 3 Doubles and one twin. All the bedrooms have at least a shower room, two have baths also. The property is roughly 5 miles north of Belfast and is an ideal base for a stay. The railway station is a 5 minute walk away for those like us that were without transport and trains run into Belfast every half hour. Great kitchen, Lounge. Can't fault it.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Outstanding. Everything you need and more. We had a fantastic time. There is a coastal path great for running and cycling right behind the house. Perfect location to explore Belfast and the North of Ireland. The Old Rectory is one of three self-catering properties so it is also ideal for a family reunion in a private setting yet with plenty of room to get together and a beach at the back door. We really loved the cottage and will definitely go back.

Hervorragend. Alles was man braucht und mehr. Wir hatten eine super Zeit. Es gibt ein Lauf-und Fahrrad Küstenweg direkt hinter dem Haus. Perfekte Lage um Belfast und Nord Irland zu erkunden. Das Old Rectory ist eine von drei self-catering cottages und ideal für ein Familientreffen in privater Atmosphäre jedoch mit viel Platz um gemeinsam etwas zu unternehmen und einem Strand direkt neben an. Das Cottage hat uns super gut gefallen und wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We could not fault this beautiful place - the location was ideal and the property was gorgeous, extremely comfortable and well stocked. Rosemary and John are lovely people who made every effort to make our stay enjoyable and my only complaint is that it would have been nice to stay for longer! We hope to return soon. Most impressive, would highly recommend this to anyone who visits Ireland.

“A Stunning property”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is an absolutely stunning property. Very clean. It has been recently been very tastefully renovated and decorated. The location is perfect for access to Belfast, the north coast, County Down and to the centre of N.Ireland. Iris virtually at the end of the M5.

We had a party of 7 which included 2 seniors who had mobility issues but with the downstairs bedroom this was not a problem.

There were ensuites in each bedroom which was wonderful.

The kitchen was very well equipped and had a large eating area which allowed everyone including guests to dine together.

To top everything off we had a wonderful view of Belfast Loch. Some of party took advantage of walks along the sea wall.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

This property was renovated recently. No expense spared! The very best of quality in every room with a cottage feel. Located at end of M5 which means its close to everything, overlooking Belfast lough and harbor, with a nice coastal walk. The owners were very accommodating. The kitchen was very well stocked and fluffy towels in the bathrooms. You will not be disappointed!
