There are children’s playparks – Jonny the Jig in the town centre, swings and slides in the pretty woodland of Ballymenoch Park, great views over Holywood, & Belfast Lough from Redburn Country Park, and a large playpark by the sea at Seapark.

Detailed Description of Braeside Cottage:

The Cottage is a charming stone building attached to the main family residence, but fully self-contained with a separate front door for private accessibility for guests.
There is a private courtyard / BBQ area and secure parking area to the front of the property; a front door leads to the entrance foyer; a large sitting / dining area; a fully fitted kitchen and two family ensuite bedrooms with a double bed and single bed in each.

Living Area
The comfortable sitting room is reminiscent of a typical Irish cottage and features an inglenook fireplace. It combines warmth and practicality with tasteful soft furnishings and dining furniture. A television, DVD player, games console, stereo radio and CD player, selection of books and games and a remote control operated “woodburning stove effect” fire are all available for the use of guests. Extensive literature relating to tourism in the area is also provided to help you plan your stay.

The large cottage kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Facilities include a fridge, freezer, washer/tumble dryer, microwave, blender and sandwich toaster, and a good selection of crockery, glassware and cooking essentials.

Bedroom Accommodation
The bedrooms are arranged in a “family room” layout, with a double bed and single bed in each room. We have found that families travelling with young children benefit from this option. Cot(s) are available on request.
Two ensuite rooms, both with a double and single bed and both with televisions. All bed linen and towels are provided. Both ensuites have showers. One of the ensuites has a bath with an overhead shower, the other has a walk-in shower.

Additional Room
For additional accommodation to increase the Cottage bed spaces for larger parties, an additional room is available at first floor level. It is accessed through the same external front door as the Cottage, which leads to the communal foyer.
The Cottage has its own private entrance off the foyer and "Room 3"(named because the Cottage contains Rooms 1 and 2) is accessed by a short staircase leading from the foyer. This provides larger parties renting the cottage the flexibility to let an additional room to accommodate larger groups and provide more space. Room 3 is charged separately to the cottage, and at a discounted rate for those booking it to increase Cottage accommodation.
When it is not being used to extend the Cottage facilities, it is let out separately on a room-only basis. The room has a double bed, TV, ensuite bathroom with shower, WIFI access, small fridge and Tea and Coffee making facilities.
"Room 3" has stunning views over Belfast Lough.

We have been providing guests with comfortable, stylish self-catering accommodation in Holywood for over a decade. All our properties have been certified and / or graded by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and we aim to provide guests with affordable accommodation which is of a very high standard. All of our houses are located within easy walking distance of Holywood town centre, the stunning coastal path, and a short bus / train / taxi ride from Belfast, Bangor, the George Best City and International airports and ferry terminals. 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. 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! If you have any queries at all – you may want to book a restaurant, taxi, hairdresser or plan a trip - do please email or phone and we will endeavour to help whenever we can. There’s so much to do in the immediate and surrounding areas, with some very famous sights and landmarks only a drive away. We recommend numerous attractions in the literature in our cottages, but there’s always lots of seasonal events going on that you may be interested in, or perhaps you want to e.g. plan a daytrip further afield. Whatever it is, please do get in touch. We want you to come back and hope that you will have a memorable stay in our self-catering accommodation, and grow to love Holywood as much as we do.
