"Super cottage, super hosts."

Mill cottage was perfect for our 2 week break. The cottage is very well appointed and has everything required for a comfortable stay.

The location suited us well. Downpatrick is just minutes away and Belfast is less than an hour distant. The cottage has a lovely big, and safe, garden.

Among other attractions, we visited the aquarium at Strangford, the folk & transport museum in Holywood, and the Titanic centre in Belfast.

Patricia and Bob took good care of us during our stay.
