Lifestyle change: Peter McErlean outside The Cuan hotel and restaurant on Strangford Lough

From Strangford to the French Alps - a Co Down couple are making a huge lifestyle change.

Peter and Caroline McErlean are taking the Alpine leap to the resort of Morzine in France after around 30 years at their small, family run hotel in Strangford.

Having built up a strong reputation at The Cuan Hotel, the couple decided to sell up and "lead a different life at a slightly slower pace," Caroline said.
