History

Bella Vista is a deceptively large house.  It was built in 1900 - the last year of Queen Victoria's reign.

It would seem that Bella Vista has always been used as holiday accommodation.  From 1900 to 1934 it was known as The Bungalow and was let as apartments.

In 1934 it was renamed Bella Vista and operated as a private hotel until 1940 when it was taken over by the army and used to billet troops including, from 1944, US Army soldiers.

Bella Vista re-opened as a private hotel in 1954. Bella Vista is now owned and cared for by Deirdre McAlpin, who has upgraded the facilities to offer superior accommodation.

Deirdre initially offered Bed & Breakfast in the summer, and house parties in the winter, but now Bella Vista is available for holiday lets throughout the year.
