I am taking on the restoration and regeneration of The Narrows in Portaferry on the shores of Strangford Lough. Once a vibrant hotel, it was derelict, vandalised and boarded up for 6 years. This abandoned building has been a wasted resource for Portaferry, Strangford Lough and Northern Ireland but I, Celia Spouncer has begun a fresh start and story for part of this lovely building looking out over the Strangford Lough Narrows. The vision - to bring back this formerly award winning building as a boutique guesthouse; micro cheese making; organic garden producing produce for kitchen; centre for local SLOWfood events; Slow Living skills; music,dance, the arts and an ecology focus for Strangford Lough and the Ards Peninsula. Work is varied - painting, helping with garden and cafe/pop-up restaurant, IT skills, sewing and upcycling. I live here with my husband David who is an ecologist, my son Sebastian 15years old who is studying Spanish and my daughter Orlagh 20 years old who is studying Spanish and Italian. We are looking for someone to help and be part of the family. We have already had people from Barcelona and near Cadiz.
