We needed accommodation that permitted dogs and were delighted when we found this location. Karen & Malcolm were very relaxed & happy to let our dogs stay with us. The cottage was very clean & had everything that we needed. The dogs loved lying out on the deck area. Looking forward to another visit.

My parents and I really loved this place and looked forward to getting back to it at the end of every day. You really feel like you're away from it all being surrounded by fields. The pictures are very accurate and the private outside seating area was such a great place to sit in the sun. The cottage had everything you could need and the owners were so helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Quirky, cute, cosy cottage tucked away in the most beautiful countryside.
Hosts Karon & Malcolm were just lovely and made us feel really welcome.
The views from the balcony are gorgeous & it is the perfect little place to escape to.
Near Bangor & also a great base for exploring the Ards peninsula & beyond.
Highly recommend!

We stayed at Orchard Cottage in May 2015. We found it exactly as advertised. Quiet and cozy. Malcolm and Karon were great hosts. We stayed 5 days and wished it was longer! If ever we are back in the area, we would definitely stay here again! You can't go wrong staying here as it is in the country, but just minutes from Belfast and all the city life you could want!

“A real pleasure”

From the start Karon & Macolm made me feel really welcome.

The accommodation was really wonderful. Extremely comfortable, clean and the surroundings were beautiful.

The cottage had everything you could wish for, all the appliances & utensils required to make it a home from home stay.

I booked as I was waiting for my own house to complete and wanted somewhere to stay during this time. I'd certainly stay again and recommend Orchard Cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful break.

On arrival there was milk, bread and essentials waiting which was a lovely touch and very welcomed.

Thanks Karon and Malcolm for making my stay so relaxing and I hope to see you soon.

“Orchard Cottage iz the biz”

Arrived late on Sunday evening from Bristol, and after being short changed by the sat nav which assured us that we had reached our destination, we were rescued by a very obliging owner, and escorted from the middle of nowhere to the door of a delightful and very unusual barn conversion. Excellent views from the upstairs lounge looking over the Irish countryside.
If we ever return to Ireland we will be checking availability of Orchard cottage.
We enjoyed our stay, and thankyou.

“Idyllic stay at Orchard Cottage”

We spent a week at Orchard Cottage, wish it had been longer, We had the most peaceful and relaxing stay We have had anywhere for a very long time. the cottage has bags of character but is beautifully renovated. There is a delightful terrace upstairs on the rear of the lounge area which is bounded by glass and has 360 degree views of wonderful countryside. the cottage is well equipped and nothing was left out, the hosts even left a bottle of wine for our arrival which I thought was a lovely touch. We were very sorry to leave and thoroughly recommend Orchard Cottage. we slept exceptionally well the bed was brilliant and that's saying something as I suffer from chronic back problems! Excellent stay all round.
