“A cosy bright house in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We received a lovely warm welcome followed by a thorough explanation of the facilities.
The house was very clean, well equipped and homely. Even on dull days it was bright and cheerful. We were always happy to return to it.
The garden was quiet and secluded and we enjoyed sitting and lunching outside when the weather permitted.
The house is perfectly situated as it is close to Strangford village and ferry. Castleward Estate is a short walking distance from the house.
There are many wonderful Nationall Trust sites and beach walks a short drive away.
We will definitely return!

“Comfortable, clean house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A nice house in Strangford, a short walk from the centre of the village but quiet at night. It's an older, terraced place so looks quite charming and with a large garden and car parking area behind a gate.
The downstairs has a large conservatory and open plan kitchen so feels quite spacious. The upstairs second bedroom has three beds but could get cramped if shared by 3 adults: fine for younger children. The furnishings are totally OK: no particularly homely or cosy touches but very clean and functional. The countryside and coast around are beautiful so good for outdoors activities.

“Peaceful cosy idyll in fantastic location”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Reluctant to tell everyone how good it is, this was our second visit last time was back in 2007. Love the modernisation to the house the sun room is brilliant also helped by the Easter weather being really warm. Great location never to far from anything ie exploris sea world unfortunately it was shut this time due to refurb, castle ward, Newcastle and downpatrick. Lots of historical castles and places to see and things to do with kids. Lots of great places to eat and drink ie the cuan for food and the local chippy also the hole in the wall pub. We had five in our party and fitted comfortably. Will be going back because we have family in the area so ideal location for us. Paul welcomed us with open arms once again.
