Cunningburn Cottages

Group of Homes

Cunningburn Cottages consists of 3 x 2 bedroom cottages

Situated minutes from the shores of Strangford Lough near Newtownards, the two hundred year old building now Cunningburn Cottages was once part of the first Lord of Londonderry's estate.

Cunningburn CottagesGreat effort has been made to ensure that this quality accommodation retains much of its original rural atmosphere and character, while ensuring modern levels of comfort. Much of the furniture in the cottages was especially commissioned and has been hand made by local craftsmen.

The accommodation consists of three two bedroomed cottages, each with open-plan ground floor comprising kitchen, living and dining area with pine kitchen units and furniture. Upstairs are bedrooms and bathroom.

Cunningburn CottagesFacilities include colour television and oil-fired central heating in all the cottages. A floodlit, sheltered barbecue area, a well equipped laundry room and ample parking are also available within the complex.

Nearby attractions in this area of natural beauty are many and include fishing, golf, horse riding, country sports and walking. The eighteenth-century Mountstewart Estate is situated within a mile of the accommodation. The renowned Ulster Folk and Transport Museum at Cultra is a twenty minute drive away, while Castle Espie Wetlands and Wildfowl Centre, the Exploris Aquarium and Scrabo Country Park are all within easy access.

A recently opened attraction in the vicinity is The Battletown Gallery. It offers a varied programme of contemporary Irish art and will soon be providing short tutored residential courses for the interested amateur.

Home from Home: Review by phyllis

We have stayed twice now in these cottages. The location is tranquil. The cottages are finished to a high standard and the cleanliness is to be commended. The Brothers who manage these cottages are friendly and have a mine of information about the area etc. The first time we stayed here I was a little concerned that we might be cold but the heating is timed to perfection and if things get a little chilly the gas stove is always on hand. We have stayed in both the 2 bed and 1 bed cottages and there is no problem with cooking facilities etc.

The only problem is that if I tell people about this wonderful place that I may not get booked in the next time I need a break.

The best place to stay in the Belfast area: Review by dennis

You'll not find a nicer, friendlier place to stay in Newtownards. Imagine your own townhouse built into an old stable in the country. Conveniently located near stores and petrol, my wife and I travelled throughout Northern Ireland and the coastal towns. By the second day it truely felt like home and we have never been so sad to leave as we were here. Thank you Jim and Tess (my adopted dog), we are looking forward to returning soon..

The cottages are at the top of the lane to your left. Nevertheless you can get an idea of where these cottages are situated and how close they are to Strangford Lough. Just follow the road to your left a short distance. Rotating the view is available by the controls just above the + symbol. Clicking on the arrows on the road enables you to move location.

Click the marker (changes to red on rollover) in the top left for map view. Please note the address provided by Google Maps in the top left corner is not always accurate.

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