Myself, my wife and our two young sons aged 6 and 8 stayed in the house on the Saturday and Sunday night of the May Bank Holiday. House is of an excellent standard, well appointed, spotlessly clean and with lovely views over the Lough to Portaferry across the Narrows. It had those little extras from the wood burning stove to the wifi that make a stay an extra treat. We enjoyed a walk around the town and the first night had a great meal in the Lobster Pot. We spent all the next day at Castle Ward enjoying the bike trails, scenery, play parks, Game of Thrones locations, geocaching and a tour of the big house. Then we took the ferry across to the hotel for some more good food. The location of the house is so handy and watching the coming and goings of the ferry fascinated the boys. Top notch accommodation in a great area to explore. A real Bank Holiday Winner!
Stella was just lovely to deal with. Really gorgeous house, has everything you could ever need for your holiday, from a sewing needle to a fishing rod. We just loved our holiday. So much to do and see in the village. Loved fishing for mackerel on the pier. The ferry to Portaferry great. Fabulous beaches only 10 mins away. Castleward National Trust so good, beautiful walks, gorgeous gardens and house, great coffee shop and 2 great play parks for the kids. Game of Thrones filmed in Castleward. The Lobster Pot restaurant is a gorgeous restaurant with beautiful food and is less than 50 metres from the our front door. The Cuan is the other restaurant and just across the green. Great fish and chips there. Save the best till last, Kevin Og's shop, 2 doors down from the house, Kevin has the best ic-cream ever. Our 4 girls went every day for an ice-cream to Kevin Og's. Stella was lovely to deal with and bought our 4 girls a present when we arrived. Our girls just loved this and we look forward tvery much to going back again.
