Portaferry is at the southern-most part of the Ards Peninsula and is easily accessible by road from Newtownards and by ferry from Strangford. Guests regularly comment on our locally sourced breakfasts– bread, sausages, bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes all sourced from the local suppliers in Portaferry . We purchase our eggs from 16 year old Luke who sells directly from his father’s farm and our Granola is sourced just four doors away from our friends at Just Live a Little. In 2015 we gained a Green Tourism Silver Award. We are also a Booking com Award holder for our 9.8 score and we hold a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for customer satisfaction.
Attractions on the Ards Peninsula include Mount Stewart, Kirkistown Motor Circuit and Exploris. The local area is popular with tv and film producers and Portaferry was a main location for the 2008 tv series 'The Invisibles'. The charming Kearney Village, a National Trust property just 3 miles away, was a central location for the recent BBC-1 wartime series 'My Mother and Other Strangers'. Portaferry itself was recently used as the location for the 2017 film 'The Bookshop'. A ferry trip across the lough is Castle Ward in Strangford, used as Winterfell in Game of Thrones. It has many good loughside trails which highlight the various locations used in the series. There are three beaches a short drive or cycle ride away including Cloughey Beach, Quintin Bay and Knockinelder Beach.
