Set in the Strangford and Lecale area of outstanding natural beauty, this friendly, family-run, rural B&B is ideal for dog owners, walkers and visitors on cycling, golfing or tourist holidays. It is situated within walking distance of the beautiful coastal town of Portaferry, with its friendly shops and pubs and is a 10 minutes’ drive from a number of stunning Irish Sea beaches. The Strangford Lough, Exploris and Mount Stewart are just a few of the many fascinating attractions near at hand. The owners and their 3 retrievers take great pride in serving locally sourced produce and extending a warm welcome!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a great breakfast and chat! Our golden retriever was more than welcome and had a blast playing with other two retrievers! The rooms are super clean and tidy and there’s a wonderful joyful atmosphere throughout. Thank you! Victoria and Marc

I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast with my dog Brodie for one night earlier in December. The accommodation was excellent and catered for your every need. Brodie and I had a sitting room to ourselves. There was a wide range of choices for breakfast and Brodie even had his own little sausage parcel. I can thoroughly recommend this B&B for a warm welcome to all doggy guests and would hope to go back again in the future. Thank you Debbie and Brodie

Stayed with Sydny, Chris & their three wonderful Labs while on a trip to Kirkiston race circuit. The bnb is located within 10 mins of the circuit. Very welcoming hosts with comfortable, clean and tidy accommodation. Great gluten free options for breakfast. Would recommend staying there to anyone. Will hopefully be back.
