Hi I'm Berny in full time employment and mother of two. My husband and I got this property in 2008 and it was totally remodelled inside. Unfortunately due to other commitments we were. It getting to use it and decided it might be nice to share it.
Our family love Strangford for many reasons. It is picture postcard beautiful and has its own little microcosm of weather making it usually sunnier than where I live in Belfast.
The surrounding are is also great with lots of places to visit and a range of activities.
We love hosting as it's an opportunity not only to meet like minded people who'll love travelling. It also that its great to share our little gem of a holiday home.
I love photography and have taken a number of local shots here for you to view.
Nothing is any trouble sodon't hesitate to contact me at any time
