Site with planning permission for conversion of 3 buildings to tourist units and restoration of listed pig crew
Churn Rock Holiday Cottages
This scheme involves the restoration of three vernacular buildings dating from the early 1800’s for use as holiday cottages – the host “Farmhouse”, a “Fisherman’s Cottage” and a range of working “Outhouses”. A listed Pig Crew in the Farm yard is also to be restored.
The proposal lies within one of Northern Ireland’s primary tourist nodes as it adjoins the St. Patrick’s Heritage Area and lies close to the Mourne Mountains and Strangford Lough. It is situated within Lecale Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, set only 160 metres from the Irish Sea, and enjoys panoramic views to the Isle of Man. Close by to the North are the Conservation Area resorts of Killough and Ardglass and the Coney Island Beach. To the South are Tyrella Beach, Murlough Bay and the resorts of Dundrum and Newcastle.
