Strangford has been a local favourite with family and friends for many years. Seal Cabin provides the opportunity to unplug from the internet and distractions of television in this secluded spot on the outskirts of Strangford village. The cabin would be described as a bijou seaside bedsit retreat which can sleep up to 4 people. Its open plan living gives views from every room of Strangford Lough and out to the Irish Sea. The cabin has 1 double bed, living space with comfortable sofa bed and cast iron gas stove, compact dining table and chairs, kitchenette and shower room. The kitchenette is small but functional with a refrigerator, counter top oven, portable ceramic hob, sink, toaster, kettle and appropriate kitchenware. For guests who don’t want to miss their favourite television ...Strangford has been a local favourite with family and friends for many years.
