“This place was more than we could ask for! Jill is an outstanding host. She provided us with local tasty bread, eggs, milk etc which was really kind of her. She also arranged for a round of her stable which was again lovely gesture. She did everything to ensure we had awesome stay. Thank you Jill. You are a star”

“Jill was the perfect host. I booked her accommodation as I am seeking accommodation in the area for guests that I am entertaining in the summer so I just wanted to ensure that her accommodation was of good standard. It however exceeded all expectations. The old restored barn conversions are beautiful, tastefully decorated and Jill left me a lovely welcome pack. She also showed me her other properties which are equally stunning. It was peaceful location but only 25 minutes from Belfast and near super restaurants and pubs. It’s ideal for families but also equally peaceful for couples who want to escape to the country. I actually booked all 3 adjoining properties for 2 weeks for my guests coming from America.”

“Beautiful location and home very close to Strangford Lough. Perfect for a quiet, restful break. We went cycling around the Ards Peninsula and to the historic early Christian site of Nendrum monastery”

“My son and I booked to spend Christmas night at Toye as we were visiting Family and friends nearby. Our 2 bedroom cottage, ‘Taggart’, afforded beautiful views of the surrounding area and was both spacious and wonderfully equipped with everything we needed for our short stay. The cottage is in a quiet location, just off the beaten track, but very easy to locate. Communication with Jill, throughout, was excellent, with a no fuss check-in and check-out – I look forward to staying again :)”

“After 6 months of travelling around Europe and the UK, we came across this jewel of a place in Northern Ireland! The hosts make you feel right at home and the views are spectacular. If you stay here, look forward to a great view and hospitality. Thank you Jill and Joe!!”

“Jill was very helpful from the start responding to every query quickly. She was there on arrival and showed us around also providing information on nearby restaurants and take aways. Lovely complimentary treats were there on arrival also which was a lovely touch! We all have a great time and will be recommending and hopefully staying again in the future!

“Great space. Perfect for large groups. Superbly comfy beds, some great walks nearby.”


“Our 3 bedroom cottage was a perfect place to stay with lovely views of the surrounding countryside from our first floor lounge. All the rooms were spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished in a country style and also very comfortable. Our hosts were very welcoming and provided a lovely welcome pack including home made wheaten bread, eggs, sausages, tea and coffee which was very much appreciated. There is great choice of excellent restaurants locally around Killyleagh, Killinchy and Comber and plenty of interesting places to explore in the area. We look forward to coming back and spending more time in this beautiful place.”


“Very comfortable stay in Jill’s Guest Suite. I received a very warm welcome and lots of helpful tips of local area. The location is great for exploring the country side and coastal routes and also in close reach of Belfast city. A perfect base for any kind of getaway.”



“Fantastic place to stay with great views. Perfect size for families as it’s very spacious. Very clean and has all amenities you need whilst away from home. Jill is lovely and so helpful. You won’t be disappointed”
