1 of a group of 7 cottages that can accommodate parties of up to 34 people.

Whin Cottage was developed in single storey format. This cottage has been cleverly designed with the elderly and disabled (accompanied by able bodied) in mind although remaining a cosy, bright retreat for anyone seeking relaxation. Whin Cottage has accommodation for 4 people in 2 bedrooms. One bedroom with single bed and one with both a single and double bed. The cottage also has spacious bathroom and shower with easy access and under floor heating. The patio/barbeque area and car parking are immediately adjacent in its sheltered courtyard. The cottage is centrally heated throughout and is finished to the same high standard as the other cottages within the complex. Whin is bright, cheery and welcoming, a reminder of the atmosphere in the original Brooks farm kitchen which forms part of it. The maple kitchen is fully equipped with built in fridge, freezer, dishwasher and the integral living area has satellite TV/video and a traditional style electric stove.
We have recently added five farm trails that lead to a Bird hide,Badger hide,and viewing platform.Many parts of the Scottish mainland and the Isle of Man are all visible from this vantage point !
*******We have recently stocked OUR OWN PRIVATE LAKE at Barnwell so guests can go fishing.

Whin cottage is well suited for elderly guests as it is all on the ground floor.

In 2015 Barnwell Farm Cottages were awarded a Gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

Location / Directions

From Belfast International Airport , Aldergrove; take the M2 motorway direct to Belfast.

From the Port of Larne; take the main A8 towards Belfast until it joins the M2 motorway as your quickest option, or if you can read a map and would like to take the scenic coastal route past Carrickergus with its impressive Castle, then take the coastal A2 direct from Larne to Carrickfergus and then straight on to Belfast via the M5 Motorway.

On the approach to Belfast you can bypass the Centre of the City by taking the M3 motorway over the New Lagan Bridge and follow signs to Newtownards via the A2, past the New Belfast Harbour Airport, through Holywood, past the Folk and Transport Museum heading for Bangor. Follow the signs on the Rhs to Newtownards just before Bangor.

From Newtownards; follow the A20 towards Portaferry, after approx 3 miles you will come to the small Village of Greyabbey. Turn left at the mini roundabout in the village and go to the end of the street. Turn right at the T junction and leave the village on the B5 for Ballywalter.

One mile out off Greyabbey take the first road on the right into the Ballybryan Road, the Cottages are only a further quarter mile on your left hand side.
