Do you want a retreat away from it all. Or a comfortable base from which to explore or to play golf. Flora Cottage is in the secluded Millin Bay surrounded by rural activities. Plenty of wildlife, walking in drumlins, cycling, archeology, riding,painting. It is an ideal place to explore from - Strangford Lough, Downpatrick or further afield to Belfast,the Antrim coast or even Dublin.
Flora is highly equipped and we can arrange laundry, catering or buy in your groceries to await your arrival. There is a taxi service that can take you to Portaferry, three miles away, for dinner or live music in a local pub. Or you can curl up by the open fire and relax with a glass of wine and a good book. The choice is yours. Enjoy.

Delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We love it but suspect we are biased! One of the greatest attractions is the ever- changing scenery, light and wildlife - you never get bored. Hope to see you back next year
