Edenvale House

County Down
Bed & Breakfast

A fine Georgian house run by Diane with, exuberance and generosity. She offers family-luxurious rooms, an honesty bar and superb breakfasts


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Up from the main road by the lapping waters of Strangford Lough, the long narrow lane brings you to Edenvale, a very fine, very well-kept Georgian house, steeped in rural peace. Diane welcomes you with tea, cakes and friendly exuberance in the beautiful drawing room (polished mahogany, colourful rugs, gleaming silver) or in the bright sunroom with its views of the brooding Mourne mountains. Gordon has a quick humour, too, and is quite prepared to take over welcome duties as the occasion requires. Large, immaculate bedrooms are well proportioned with luxuriously big beds, pelmets and hangings. There are some unusual pieces of furniture: old ‘Flemish’ bedheads, an inlaid dressing table, a fine oval-mirrored wardrobe. A lot of effort goes into each aspect of the Edenvale experience, and that includes the well-stocked honesty bar and the superb and varied breakfasts. The garden, as well as happy flourishing roses, has a jungle full of trees for climbing, shrubberies for hiding, a run-around lawn, and hens – a paradise for children. Gentle, playful dogs, too.

I am daydreaming today about Ireland and especially our stay just outside of Belfast at Edenvale House...our only regret was not staying longer than 2 nights at this remarkably lovely country home. Diane greeted us warmly to the most inviting bedroom suite with every small special touch thoughtfully provided. After settling in- we had a delicious tea with trimmings in their family room- we felt so at home. The comfort and beauty of this area with field, trees and a view from our room to the lough down past the long driveway. Diane's breakfast leaves nothing to be desired...just delicious!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Diane & Gordon Whyte

  • Edenvale is a fully restored attractive Georgian house with views over Strangford Lough, set in 2 acres of woodland gardens and woodland. Edenvale is set back 400 metres from the road, accessed by a private laneway, and is surrounded by rolling farmland
  • The pretty village of Greyabbey is only a 10 minute drive. Go there to visit the many antique shops or to see the impressive ruin of the Cistercian Abbey ( founded in the year 1193 ), after which Greyabbey was named.
  • The famous National Trust property Mount Stewart is only 5 minutes drive away. Visit the world class gardens (recently voted one of the top ten gardens in the world ) or take a tour round the recently restored stunning Mount Stewart House itself.
  • Belfast and the famous Titanic Centre are only half an hour's drive away ( if you avoid the rush hour ! ).
  • The coastal resorts of Bangor and Donaghadee are within a half hour's drive and provide more restaurants and pubs to visit as well as walks along the promenade.
  • Apart from the restaurants in Bangor and Donaghadee there are good pub/restaurants in Greyabbey and Newtownards both within a short drive or taxi-ride.
