Rocklyn Cottage, Whiterock Bay, Killinchy ... what can be said that has not already been expressed in these pictures? Rocklyn is in an outstanding location with Strangford Lough almost lapping your front door. Fancy a change of view? A gentle wander down the back garden opens up further panoramic views of Strangford Lough with the waters edge just feet away. How many cottages do you know with water access front and back? Truely outstanding picturesque views in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

The cottage's front door is to the side of the property enabling the main bedroom, second bedroom and living room to enjoy the panoramic views over the Lough. The large windows frame these views and add a light and airy feel to the cottage. There is a swivel chair in the living room complete with binoculars to enable you to wile away the hours. The living room extends down the left side of the cottage incorporating the dining table and leads out through patio doors to the rear garden. There is ample space here for numerous activities including the ability to engage in some outdoor cooking via a barbeque area.

The kitchen is to the rear of the property and leads into the conservatory.  This excellent feature to the cottage possesses the ability to drag you away from those panoramic views and entice you into what can only be described as a fantastic sun trap. If you fancy a bit more fresh air then you can take advantage of the garden furniture, grab a book and kick back and chill. With surroundings like these the only challenge is when it is time to leave, but you know the answer to that don't you, yes, book a second week!

Whiterock Bay, Killinchy, is ideally situated for exploring the Strangford Lough and Ards Peninsula area, with several places of interest lying within 40 minutes drive from Whiterock.
