Middle Cottage, Carryduff, BelfastPerfectly located to explore Northern Ireland, Middle Cottage is just 8 miles from Belfast City and 3 miles from the historic town of Saintfield with its many cafes and antique shops. The cottage is bright and airy with all mod cons including wifi.
Cottage on the beachThe cottage is right on the shore. It is self contained with a kitchen area and small bathroom. The twin beds, on a mezzanine floor, can be hooked up to make a super king-sized bed. Guests will have access to the beach and a garden area. Parking is on site. Although there is no washing machine, I can wash clothes for guests in my house which is next door. I live next door and will interact with guests as much or as little as they wish. I am usually at home, but if I am travelling I will arrange for a neighbour to keep contact with my guests. Coney Island is between Ardglass and Killough. There are shops and restaurants in both. It is under an hour from Belfast and within sight of the Mourne Mountains and Newcastle. Ardglass has a golf course and there are lots of opportunities locally for walking, fishing and watersports. Public transport is limited, but possible. There is a bus from Dublin airport with a connection to Downpatrick. There is a bus from both Belfast airports with connections to Downpatrick, about six miles from Coney Island. If I am home I will pick up guests from Downpatrick. Taxi fare is around £10. I provide basic food for your first day...tea, coffee, milk, sugar,bread, butter, breakfast cereal, jam, salt, pepper, oil, vinegar. Basic toiletries are provided. The upper floor is accessible to able bodied adults and children, but would present problems to anyone with mobility problems. (See Pic)
