The region has some beautiful forest and country parks to explore, including Kilbroney Park, Tollymore Forest Park and Delamont Country Park.Cycling at Castle Ward• Explore the beautiful National Trust property of Castle Ward near the village of Strangford. Go for a stroll around the grounds, cycle the trails along the shores of Strangford Lough, visit the Medieval Audley's Castle, browse the gift and second-hand book shops, then relax in the Coach House café.Strangford Sea Safari Tour• While you're in the area, why not try a Strangford Sea Safari tour? These high speed boat trips are the perfect way to see the area's stunning coastline - look out for the seals and the lough's impressive whirlpools. • Take the Strangford Lough Ferry the short distance from Strangford across to the town of Portaferry on the opposite shore of the lough.

These include the restored fishing village of Kearney, Grey Abbey and another stunning National Trust property, Mount Stewart House and Gardens.
Great for wedding accommodation or Golf Tournaments, only 18 miles to Royal County Down and close to Kirkistown Castle, Spa and Ardglass golf courses. Sailing, mountain biking close by. World of Westeros by visiting Game of Thrones set locations close to Killyleagh. Great base for long and short cycling routes around the quiet country roads or off road routes. A gem of an apartment with lovely views across Strangford Lough. The fixtures, fittings and furnishings were all to a very high standard. It was immaculately clean. The balcony was a great sunny spot to have breakfast. Killyleagh is a lovely place. The Smuggler's Table, a two minute walk away, is an excellent place to eat.
