Chapel Island Apartment is one of two apartments at this location. Salt Island Apartment is very similar.

Pharmacy Apartments Sympathetically restored with solid pine flooring throughout this stunning apartment offers modern living in relaxing surrounds. The restored Belfast roof gives the apartment a wonderful feeling of space. Exposed beams and stone work add to the ambience.

The apartment is about 100 metres walk from the waters edge and is above a renovated shop and coal store. In days gone by the apartment was used to store corn and grain before it was weighed and measured on its way to the farmers market. Coal was also stored on its arrival by coal boats that docked at the harbour.

StrangfordThe living room is located in the front of the apartment with views over the well kept village green. (Picture to the right shows edge of apartments with village green centre). The apartment is elegantly furnished with leather furniture and solid pine floors. The kitchen shares the living room with all modern appliances. There are a number of skylights throughout the apartment which add to the light and airy feel. Both bedrooms are ensuite, with the main bedroom featuring an exposed stone wall. There is a small stairs that leads you up to the second bedroom and patio area.

Strangford is a delightful sea side village separated by water from Portaferry. It is uniquely positioned at the road end further enhancing it's character. Frequent sailings bring you (and car) across the short distance to Portaferry where the kids can enjoy the Exploris Aquarium (see our attractions for more info). The town is tranquil and peaceful and boasts some excellent places to eat.

Strangford FerryStrangford is an ideal touring base for exploring the Ards Peninsula, Castleward National Trust Property, St Patrick's Mountain and Heritage Sites and Mountains of Mourne. It is also a great base for the many golf courses and fishing locations.

A number of walks are available from your doorstep including easy access to the Ulster Way. Routes allow you to explore the many castles and towers along this coastline. Audley Castle is roughly a 45 minute walk and has pleasant views over Portaferry, local sailing club and Strangford Lough. A short car journey to Kilcief castle in the other direction reveals some small beautiful clean beaches, perfect for swimming.

The apartment can be seen straight ahead, dead centre, as you look. 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 apartment.

Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ... Did you see how close you are to the waters edge?
