We spent 2 nights at the Cottesmore and it just wasn't long enough! We received a warm welcome from Rae who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, our room was gorgeous and immaculately clean. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice covering all you could possibly want. Rae also told us some lovely places to visit which we hadn't... More

We stayed two night. Rae was an excellent host. She gave us lots of information on places to see in the area (including a few we were not planning on seeing) and we enjoyed all of them. Breakfasts were very good. They even opened up the dining room, when we decided to bring home dinner one night. Definitely would stay... More

We stayed at this B and B for one night after a wedding in Donegal. All the positive reviews are spot on. John and Rae are brilliant hosts making us feel welcome and offering tea and coffee on arrival. The rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was outstanding and set the... More

Having read so many good reviews written about this B&B, we booked to stay for four nights and did not regret it - the only slight disadvantage was not being able to pay with a credit or debit card. Thanks to the warm welcome and wonderful hospitality of the owners, John and Rae, we felt as though we were staying... More

Spent two nights at the lovely Cottesmore B&B while touring the sights of the area. The location is excellent, walking distance to the shops and restaurants in town and the famous Bushmills distillery. Everything else is a short drive away. Rae is a wonderful host, making us feel at home right away. The rooms are well designed, tastefully decorated, and... More

Beautiful B&B with good location in town centre of Bushmills. Close to Bushmill distilleries and other attractions like Giants Causeway. Very tastefull and comfortable rooms and great breakfast. The only thing that botthered us was that when we wanted to pay in Euro's they take 15% extra. Normal it was 75 GBP and exhanged it is 87 euro....we had to... More

Couldn't have had a better first day and night on the Emerald Isle. Arrived Dublin at 7am and drove straight up to Bushmills. Arrived early afternoon way before check-in time and just happened to catch Rae who let us put our luggage into our rooms early so we can tour the area unencumbered. She recommended The French Rooms for lunch... More

We had a fantastic stay at Cottesmore! John and Rae were extremely hospitable and willing to share their knowledge of local attractions. The rooms were very clean and the shower was amazing. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. Located within walking distance of the Old Bushmills Distillery and a short drive to Giant's Causeway, it is an ideal location if you... More
