Rocklyn Cottage, Whiterock Bay, Killinchy ... what can be said that has not already been expressed in these pictures?

Rocklyn Cottage

Truely outstanding picturesque views in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

The cottage's front door is to the side of the property enabling the main bedroom, second bedroom and living room to enjoy the panoramic views over the Lough. The large windows frame these views and add a light and airy feel to the cottage. There is a swivel chair in the living room complete with binoculars to enable you to wile away the hours. The living room extends down the left side of the cottage incorporating the dining table and leads out through patio doors to the rear garden. There is ample space here for numerous activities including the ability to engage in some outdoor cooking via a barbeque area.

The kitchen is to the rear of the property and leads into the conservatory. This excellent feature to the cottage possesses the ability to drag you away from those panoramic views and entice you into what can only be described as a fantastic sun trap. If you fancy a bit more fresh air then you can take advantage of the garden furniture, grab a book and kick back and chill. With surroundings like these the only challenge is when it is time to leave, but you know the answer to that don't you, yes, book a second week!

Rocklyn is not shown on the map as it is situated on a private waterfront cul-de-sac, on the south side of Whiterock Bay. Full directions will be supplied on booking. Nevertheless you can appreciate this outstanding location before you visit. Click on the icon in the top right corner to view in full screen. (Escape will allow you to exit full screen mode). Hold the left button on your mouse and drag to view from different angles. To move along the road either click the arrows on the road or choose a spot further along the road and left click your mouse once to advance! (If you don't move your mouse far enough away you will see a magnifying glass in your circle, move a bit further and it disappears. Click and advance! If you find yourself activating the magnifying glass simply right click and zoom out.)

You will have noticed a small window to the bottom right with a little yellow man in the centre. What you are seeing in the main window is the view through his eyes. This window can be enlarged by clicking the arrow in the top left corner. Use the '+' and '-' to zoom in/out. You can also drag the yellow man to e.g. the nearest town and have a quick tour before you arrive! Of course the blue icon represents the location of the cottage.

Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ...
