Description from owner

Description

Originating in Norman Times "Harbour View" was once a Tower House where merchants watched for sailing boats arriving with their goods at Strangford quay. The property has a vaulted passage way leading from the shore to a long forgotten Inn on Castle Street.

The house received a makeover in Georgian Times and has recently been restored to provide a comfortable home with wonderful views over Strangford Lough. The property also overlooks a large walled garden which contains a raised patio area and a large lawn for games. The accommodation includes a spacious dinning area and kitchen with a log stove on the ground floor, a large sitting room, a bathroom and a single bedroom on the first floor and two bedrooms, and a bathroom on the second floor. We offer unlimited internet access.

Location description from owner

Northern Ireland region

Strangford lies on the eastern, inner shores of Strangford Lough on the edge of the pretty drumlin countryside of County Down. The area has plenty of historic features from ancient stone circles to classic stately homes and a never ending array of coastal, rural and built scenery to feast your eyes on. The ancient town of Downpatrick lies a 10 minute drive inland has several artefacts and a museum dedicated to St Patrick. For the more adventurous a 45 minute drive will take you into the heart of the Mourne Mountains where several hiking tracks can be followed up onto the tops.

A 30 minute drive takes you to the bright lights and bustle of Belfast where there are many big brand shops and shopping centres. The eastern shores of Northern Ireland are drier and warmer than the west or north coast and Strangford is generally a sheltered spot.

Strangford

The Lough is a Marine Nature Reserve and boasts stunning scenery, wildlife and plenty of water activities. Waymarked walks take you from the village along the shoreline past an ancient Norman Castle and on to the grand stately home and grounds of the National Trust property at Castle Ward. Short drives take you into the busy market town of Downpatrick or winding along the scenic coast to watch birdlife or the seals off Cloughy Rocks or to take in quiet beaches or more ancient castles. A 10 minute ferry ride to Portaferry opens up the whole of the Ards Penninsula with Exploris Aquarium, beaches, pretty villages,history and the magnicent estate at Mount Stewart. In late July the local community host a carnival week in Portaferry which climaxes with a street parade. In mid July a traditional funfair comes to Strangford providing fun for all the family. Throughout the summer fishing, canoeing and other outdoor pursuits can be organised from Strangford. There are also several well appointed golf courses within easy driving distance. Strangford village has several pubs which regularly host traditional music sessions. There is also a couple of grocery stores, a pharmacy, craft shop,cafe, restaurant and a take away.

“Strangford with a view”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2017

Harbour View was a great base. Plenty of space and lovely period features. Fabulous views from the breakfast / window bar across Strangford Lough- proved a favourite spot with the whole family to watch the world go by and the ferries. Right in the centre of the village. Nice to have teo seating areas - the grown ups congregatwd on in the kitchen/ diner/ snug and the kids used tge first floor room as their base / movie room. Central for exploring - we went to Tayto Park in Co Meath, Carrickfergus castle, Ballycastle, Ballintoy harbour and Giant's Causeway.

Owner's reply: Thank you for such a lovely review we really appreciate it.
