There is underfloor heating throughout, and it is a very comfortable environment due to the high levels of insulation. There is also a wood-burning stove. The cottage has a sun-filled veranda on two sides with table and chairs on the west-facing veranda to catch the evening light. The house is set in a natural attractive garden with young orchard and vegetable plots, and has access to the river bank with diverse bird and wildlife. So come to this restful place and fall asleep to the sound of the river. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Registered with NITBMore

This peaceful, clever cottage really worked for us - it feels like a good place to be in. We loved the verandah for sitting out and eating, the newlaid eggs when the hens were performing. Our hosts were both friendly and respectful of our privacy....More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located on the periphery of an historic estate, so benefits from the mature trees and gentle landscape. We are located on the banks of the Ballynahinch River which is a very special setting, teaming with Wildlife. We are just 6 miles from Strangford Lough ( Killyleagh) and within 30 mins of several other lovely beaches.
How to get there
Hemp Cottage is located 2 miles from the main A7 to Belfast, just outside the village of Crossgar.This route has a good bus service into Belfast to the North, and Downpatrick to the South. Transport from Dublin is possible by train, and now just 2 hours by car from Dublin Port due to the upgrade in the A1. We are happy to send detailed directions once you have made a booking, which may be better than reliance on a Sat Nav !
