Holiday Rental House
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....Originating in Norman Times 'Harbour View' was once a Tower House where merchants watched for sailing boats arriving with their goods at Strangford quay.

Visited for a wedding. Lovely location, super views, overlooks the ferry with all its activity. House clean, comfortable and well equipped, cooked in a couple of times with ease. Local hostelries handy and utilised. First visit to Northern Ireland, how beautiful.
