You’re on the outskirts of culture-rich Hillsborough and breakfast is served in the dining room of the owners’ traditional 18th-century pink cottage. You stay in one of two New England-styled rooms in a separate stone cottage with a sitting room, real fire and kitchen. Fresh flowers and underfloor heating add to the warm feel.
Food is taken seriously and is delicious. Susan’s a passionate cook and Willie’s potato bread is a classic. Garden jams, fluffy pancake stacks with pistachio crumb and specials like poached egg on crushed pesto potatoes make breakfast worth getting up for.
Retreat to your homely cottage or the flower-filled gardens to relax. There’s plenty of space and lovely views over green County Down. If you don’t know the area then just ask Susan – she’ll happily get maps out and help plan trips.
