We overlook Ardglass Golf Club, with its spectacular course and are within an easy drive of several other courses, with Royal County Down, 18 miles away, in Newcastle.

Coney Island Bay is an ASSI, as a site of European importance for the over wintering Light Bellied Brent Geese. Heron Farm is so named, because the herons gather on our land when the tide is full in the bay.
