A Home Away From Home.

We attract guests from all walks of life, and from all around the world. From individuals and groups visiting Holywood for the first time, to local families returning to the area to visit their loved ones, to large corporate bookings, where companies seek to secure first class accommodation for their employees who are working in the area, we strive provide a home from home for our visitors, in comfortable, cosy cottages and houses that are equipped to meet every self-catering need you may have.

We have many regular clients from the film, engineering, and IT industries to name a few, and we have guests stay with us for periods of 2 nights, up to several months. We are proud to welcome returning guests regularly, and really enjoy staying in touch and catching up with our return visitors.

Local Information.

Our style is traditional, with a modern, eclectic twist. We are focused on promoting the local area, and guests will love the stylish décor and local artwork in all our homes. We’ve covered the walls of our houses with local art, which showcases the local area, landmarks and Northern Irish culture – in art which is innovative, thought provoking, historic, humorous and quite simply great to look at. Guests will soon find themselves familiar with many of the landmarks featured on our walls – perhaps they may even give travellers a few ideas about how to plan their trip!

We think we have our kitchens equipped with every utensil / piece of equipment a visitor could wish for – but if there’s an item we’ve missed, guests just need to let us know and we will have it delivered. Our houses have dishwashers and washer / tumble dryers to make your stay as relaxing and “work-free” as possible. Linen and towels are provided in all our homes, and items like ironing boards, hairdryers, washer / tumble dryers all come as standard. Cots and highchairs are available on request. All houses have Wi-Fi some have DVD players / XBOX / book library and games selection for the entertainment of guests and children. We also provide information on local restaurants, amenities, entertainment and services in the area, with contact numbers to make your stay as easy possible. Our houses all have plenty of full length mirrors for people getting ready for special events such as weddings and family celebrations, and our mattresses and linen are hotel quality to ensure that you get a comfortable nights sleep and are ready to explore our lovely surroundings feeling refreshed and relaxed.

We have guests visiting all year round, and guarantee that you will be very comfortable whatever the season. Some houses have larger outdoor space than others, but all have access to a private BBQ area, which is particularly nice in the warm, sunny, summer months. At Christmas time we love to get the decorations out, and all guests benefit from a welcome pack on arrival throughout the year, so that they can get the kettle on as soon as they have checked in.





Eating Out

If you are travelling with e.g. another family, or are part of a large group, many of our houses are located near to each other, so guests sometimes spread their bookings between 2 or more houses. If you want to know which houses are close to one another for large group bookings, just give us a call and we will be happy to advise you.

We love animals and are pet friendly. We know that beloved pets are part of the family and that travelling without them is frequently not an option. We do have rules regarding pets staying in our homes, but they are reasonable, and guest’s dogs are very welcome and are often left a little welcome pack of their own!

Check in is any time from 2pm on your day of arrival and check out by 11am on the day of departure. If you need to check in earlier than 2pm, please do ask, as we will always try to accommodate early check ins and late check outs if we can. Sometimes this is impossible due to other guests arriving – however if we can we will! Guests staying longer than a week can expect a weekly service and linen / towel change. All houses are professionally cleaned prior to each check in, and your house will be sparkling on arrival!


Special Requirements.

If you have any special requirements in relation to e.g. young children, elderly guests, or people coping with disabilities, please do ask if you need any other information regarding our houses. Some are level access, whilst others have one or more flights of stairs. Some have walk in showers, whilst others have showers over the bath. We want to help you plan for every eventuality, and welcome any queries you may have.
