The Pods at Streamvale are nestled amidst 50 acres of pristine countryside.

It’s hard to believe that they’re only five miles from Belfast’s vibrant city centre, and just a 15-minute drive to some of Northern Ireland’s most beautiful stretches of coastline. When you are here, you can enjoy the perfect mix of close-enough, and far-away.

Situated in close proximity to National Trust areas of outstanding beauty, and well placed to make the most of world-famous hiking, golfing, cycling and horseback riding, The Pods can offer you an action-packed holiday.  Of course, you may prefer to take life at a more leisurely pace – coffee-drinking, wine-sipping, and book-reading on the decking.

On Site

Streamvale Farm is open 10.30am until 5pm daily from 17th March to 31st October.

During this time, you’ll have free access to visit the animals and take part in a host of activities, such as feeding the lambs, playing with the puppies and enjoying a tractor ride. The fields surrounding The Pods also offer spectacular scenery – so grab a pair of wellies and explore!

Some of Northern Ireland’s most beautiful beaches are just a stone’s throw away. Situated between Bangor and Holywood is our favourite beauty spot –Crawfordsburn Country Park, with its spectacular scenery and views across Belfast Lough. You can also experience breathtaking walks through peaceful meadows and (if you’re lucky) catch a glimpse of the stunning hidden waterfall.


For those rainy days, you’ll find ice-skating, bowling, crazy-golf and an Omniplex cinema just a few minutes’ drive away. Or if it’s the great outdoors that entices you, the surrounding area offers world-class golfing, kayaking, paddle-boarding and mountain biking. We can help you arrange any activities during your stay.


Northern Ireland is steeped in heritage, with a rich culture and history to discover. Stormont Parliament Buildings are surrounded by beautiful forest trails and located less than a 10-minute drive away. Also nearby, you’ll find the world-famous Titanic Exhibition Centre and Crumlin Road Gaol.
