Rose Cottage and Lilac Tree Cottage are pretty, traditional Irish cottages which date back to 1860. They are located on a street of stone cottages on the edge of the small historic village of Greyabbey with its Cistercian abbey dating back to 1160. Foxglove Cottage extends to the rear of Rose Cottage. It is a modern barn-like cottage with a fabulous open plan kitchen, living and dining room with wonderful views on to a large, private garden.
The abbey is set in beautiful parkland and is just across the way from the cottage, the perfect spot for walks and picnics. Greyabbey has a number of historic buildings and a selection of antique and vintage shops, restaurants and coffee shops.
The cottages have been recently renovated and are furnished with a mixture of vintage and contemporary pieces yet maintain rustic charm with all modern home comforts.
Rose Cottage is deceptively spacious with a large living room, master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, large kitchen with dining area and a sunny courtyard perfect for alfresco dining.
Lilac Tree Cottage is quaint and cosy with a sizeable living room, seperate kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom with overhead shower and pretty garden to the side and rear with views of the Abbey.
Foxglove Cottage has 3 bedrooms - 2 double and 1 single and one bathroom. The cottage has a large double height open plan living, kitchen and dining area with French doors leading onto a delightful large garden. Access to this cottage is partly up a gravel driveway shared with our neighbour so to be respectful we require guests to enter and leave the property quietly especially late at night. For this reason the cottage is not suitable for late night revellers - sorry!
Rose Cottage and Foxglove Cottage can be rented together giving a sizeable space which will accommodate up to 8 guests.
Rose Cottage has been featured in "25 Beautiful Homes" and "Ireland Homes & Interiors" Magazines.
The cottages are within easy walking distance of the abbey, local park, boutique shops and restaurants and just a short drive to the beautiful beach and harbour of Ballywalter. Major supermarkets and amenities at Newtownards are just 10 minutes drive away. All major attractions of Strangford Lough are on your doorstep including the pretty villages of Portaferry and Strangford, the historic town of Downpatrick and stunning National Trust properties and gardens at Mount Stewart and Castleward. All the major attractions of Northern Ireland are accessible including Belfast just 30 minutes drive away, the Mourne Mountains 50 minutes drive and the North Coast with the Giants Causeway 1.5 hours drive. It is a superb location for a family holiday as you have a wealth of options to chose from - a fabulous long sandy beach, play parks, aquarium, petting farms, play cafes, adventure playgrounds, canoeing, windsurfing and quad biking to name but a few! The cottages are equally suited to a romantic getaway or family holiday.
