You are sitting at the head of Millin Bay with an ever changing view whether gazing out to sea to the Isle of Man. Closer there is a daily view of wildlife as the tide recedes and hunting for crab and shrimp to put in the sandcastles is an enduring pleasure.
With Portaferry only 3 miles away with its restaurants, bars and shops daily life is catered for and within easy driving there are endless golf courses. Cycling is a pleasure with uncrowded roads or walking on one of the many trails.
Millin Bay House can also be used as a launch pad for visiting Belfast (1 hour) Dublin (2.5 hours) or just exploring the Ards Peninsula with its fishing ports, antique shops, arts and crafts and the country market on a Saturday.
Or just sit back and luxuriate in the scenery and the sounds of the sea, cooking local produce and taking that well earned rest with your favourite book, music or jigsaw.
