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

About the neighbourhood
It’s hard to believe that Strangford was once situated on the equator. Of course, this was 5-million years ago!! The deposits laid down then and since have shaped the scenery around Strangford into an area of outstanding natural which you will see and enjoy today.

Within 1 mile from Number 42 is Castleward. A National Trust Property set in 332-hectare (820-acre) walled demesne is in a stunning location overlooking Strangford Lough.

The Victorian laundry, playroom, cornmill, leadmine and sawmill give the full flavour of how the estate worked. The grounds encompass woodland and lough-side paths and horse trails, formal gardens, Old Castle Ward, Temple Wa...
