Dunsey Beag Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Strangford, County Down, Northern Ireland
A 19th century farm outbuilding Dunsey Beag has been fully insulated and refurbished with central heating and tiled flooring throughout, whilst retaining it's original external features.
It is 3 miles from Strangford and 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. Killard Nature Reserve is 15mins walk away.
Careful planning went into designing a building which facilitates those using wheelchairs, prams and baby buggies in the form of a gradual ramp and broad internal doors.

About the neighbourhood
We live 3 miles south of Strangford along the shore road in the beautiful parish of Kilclief.
Kilclief gets its name from Irish Cill Cleithe (Church of the Wattles). The nearby Church of Ireland is situated on the original ancient site.
Whilst Kilclief is a wonderful rural location it also enjoys fantastic views of the 'West Bar' where the Irish Sea enters and leaves the Lough in the daily tides.
Getting around
Given the gentle gradients, this is an excellent location for hiking, rambling, and cycling.
An excellent road network assists those who want to travel to Downpatrick, Newcastle and the Mourne Mountains, and further afield.Mourne Mountains, Newry
