Self catering river-side cottage in rural County Down
This is an opportunity to stay in a really ecological cottage, set in a very attractive location right beside a river, in the grounds
of the owners converted Mill. The cottage was featured in Living Design Summer 2010 and was built with
hemp-crete walls and a grass roof. A short film is available on YouTube for those interested
in the innovative construction.
Our visitors really enjoy the generous internal & exterior spaces which are
designed to enjoy the space and light with a simple and natural style.
It has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with bunk beds. There is
level access throughout the cottage and the shower is a level access wetroom
(no bath). There is underfloor heating throughout, and it is a very

The cottage has a sun-filled veranda on two sides with table and chairs on the
west-facing veranda to catch the evening light. The house is set in a natural
attractive garden with young orchard and vegetable plots, and has access to
the river bank with diverse bird and wildlife.
So come to this restful place and fall asleep to the sound of the river.

The County Down region
The Cottage is located in County Down, which is rural as well as having coastal and mountainous areas. It is also convenient to access Belfast to the North.
The cottage is located on the periphery of an historic estate, so benefits from the mature trees and gentle landscape. We are located on the banks of the Ballynahinch River which is a very special setting, teaming with Wildlife.
We are just 6 miles from Strangford Lough ( Killyleagh) and within 30 mins of several other lovely beaches.
