About The Potter's CottageIn the farmyard at Castle Ward, this dog-friendly stone cottage has white-washed stone walls.
Go behind the scenes of Game of Thrones and step into a medieval fantasy when you stay in this two-bedroom stone cottage. It sits on the historic farmyard of Castle Ward, which provided the backdrop for Winterfell in the first series.
Key scenes from the drama will unfold right from your doorstep; from the Whispering Wood to the clock tower just next to the cottage. There’s even a replica of the Winterfell Archery Range in the courtyard.
Escape the world of dragons and battling kingdoms when you close the front door of this cosy little nook. White-washed stone walls, a roaring fire and small peeping windows will more than suffice after a busy day of exploring. There’s even room for your pup too.
You’ll have the whole of the estate to explore with 820 acres of woodland, an 18th-century mansion and formal gardens all set along the shores of the Strangford Lough.
