“Lovely House in a great wee village”
Reviewed September 26, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Really enjoyed our stay in Strangford.
Perfect village for a quiet break with lots to see and do in close proximity.
House in great location for local shops, restaurants and pubs.
No 42 has everything you need and is beautifully finished

“Fantastic home from home”
Reviewed September 19, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Great stay again... 4th and counting. Got to visit family, have a few drinks in the hole in the wall and go exploring. Paul’s place is always clean and tidy with everything we need- like a second home every time we visit. It’s always peaceful and quiet -great location for exploring castle ward, Belfast, coastal route way and beyond.

“Fabulous. We love No. 42, our 3rd stay! We will be back.”
Reviewed September 12, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

This was our 3rd stay with Paul & Claire. This time it was our 35th wedding Ann. Anytime we are in need of a break in Co Down we would not go past No. 42, Strangford. As always setting up the booking was dead easy and Paul is a pleasure to deal with. The house has two bedrooms (both large, there is a master bedroom and the other room has 3 beds in it), a lovely bathroom but the best bit is the living area at the back of the house with that large, glorious glass sliding door out onto the patio (and BBQ area), & the wood-burning stove - we love it. The lovely village of Strangford is just a short stroll away and there are loads of things to see and do, not least the ferry across the Lough to Portaferry, beautiful walks, never mind that the Games of Thrones is also filmed close to the house. Even our kids, now grown-up, love it and want to stay as long as Mum & Dad are still paying!!

“Great base for a weekend in Strangford”
Reviewed August 29, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Very comfortable accommodation packed with period details. Immaculately clean. Convenient arrangements for exchange of keys. Would highly recommend as a base to explore Strangford and the surrounding Lecale area.

The house was absolutely lovely. Everything you need is there. We had lovely weather throughout our stay so bi- folding doors came in very handy. Garden was lovely and private. I would highly recommend this property. Thank you very much Paul.
Kind regards

“What a wonderful spot!”
Reviewed April 22, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

So loved staying again at no. 42. Could not ask for a better house.

Warm, characterful and perfectly well equipped. Conveniently positioned in the picturesque village of Strangford.

Thanks to you both for letting us stay in your beautiful house.

Till next time,
Nuala, Patrick and family
