Welcome to Cuan Cottage!


Cuan Cottage is our “sheltered haven” on the shores of Strangford Lough. This 100 year old, stone built, fisherman’s cottage sits on a narrow street running down to the marina. The cottage consists of a cosy living room, comfortable master bedroom, a second bedroom furnished with bunk beds and a well equipped kitchen/dining room complete with a Welcome Pack to get you started.  Outside we have our sheltered, south facing cottage garden, complete with garden furniture, barbeque and hammock – an ideal suntrap for lazing in, after an active day out and about!


This relaxing home is only yards from the marina, the ferry and the excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs of the village.  Enjoy the relaxing charm of Portaferry or cross the Lough and savour the atmosphere of Strangford village.  The Ferry sails every half hour, every day of the year (except Christmas Day) providing a link with South Down, Downpatrick and the Mournes.


You may be a outdoors fanatic, revelling in the water sports, fishing, nature, beaches and many activities offered in the area, you may love to roam the countryside and cycle the deserted lanes, or to play the many local golf courses.  Or you may simply love to sit out on the seafront, or outside one of our great local pubs, enjoying a pint ‘of the black stuff’, and watching the world go by! Whatever your choice, Cuan Cottage offers a haven of comfort and warmth to return to.


Alternatively, why not just close over the curtains and settle into the sofa with an old film? Or pick up a good book, pour a cold glass of wine and forget your troubles, lazing in the garden. We think we’ve provided all you could want in your home from home, and we hope you choose Cuan Cottage for a great break, and come back again and again!
