Flora Cottage is partnered with Millin Bay House less than 100 metres away.

Three miles from the town of Portaferry you drive east for around five minutes and you could be forgiven for thinking you have entered another world. This is a beautiful, tranquil part of County Down that will have you coming back frequently. Flora Cottage enjoys a privileged position on Millin Bay with the sea shore lapping your back door. The views are outstanding and unrestricted with the sea and the sky meeting to form your horizon.

Being in such an environment means that you are immersed in nature. Apart from badgers, hares and the ability to bird spot on the retreating tide, seals can also at times be seen frolicking not far off shore.

Millin Bay

Waking up to the scenery with the sea yards from your door can only have you wishing to stay for another week. The environment is unqiue and conducive to reflection and creativity, the perfect place for artists and painters.

"I just wanted to say Flora Cottage is amazing, we really enjoyed our stay, and we couldn't have ask for better weather. We have seen a heron, and the hare came quite regularly, hermit crabs and on the last morning we had a visit from an otter, it was up beside the cottage and then went down into the sea, I would recommend this place to anyone, thanks."
