Have stayed here a few times now with both my family and with a friend on a golf trip. Starting with the owner Tom who is an absolute gentle man and can not do enough for you. Then the facilities are fantastic with plenty to keep the kids amused both older and young. The cottages aren't the most up to... More

Booked Ashlea Cottages back in February 2016 for the Airshow in September 2016. Secured booking with £100 deposit. When we tried to complete payment this week was advised of a double booking. No alternative accommodation remaining in Portrush so we now have to miss airshow. Very disappointing for children.

My sincere apologies for this situation, when your mother initially booked the cottage it was only available for the Sat &Sun night and the deposit of £100 was paid on this booking. When a cottage became available for the Fri & Sat night I contacted your mother and then changed the booking to suit her. Unfortunately however, when I changed... More

We had a fantastic week here staying in pebble cottage (2 bedrooms). The owner's were on hand if required and very friendly. The cottage is spacious, beds very comfortable and kitchen very well equipped. Having a washer/dryer in the kitchen was welcome also. The kids play park with trampoline, swings, climbing frame, slide etc was very well used. Our daughter... More

What a brilliant spot for our family to have stayed at. Loved the rooms, the beds, the fireplace, the fact that Tom was so knowledgeable on the area and things to do. Washing machine/drying combo not efficient.....was only issue and Tom fixed very quickly....... We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Ashlea Cottages!

Great review Mark and so many thanks for sending it in. I entirely take your point about the washer/drier, we only installed these at the start of the summer and I really haven't taken time to read up on them so that's a wee job for me in the near future!! Hopefully lots of your countrymen will read your review... More

Excellent, my kids loved it, they thought of the park as their garden. They loved the trampoline. Lots of things to do in the area and also close to shops and the centre of Portrush. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed in Ashley Cottages for a short spell for a friends wedding but found the owner Tom lovely to deal with and extremely helpful. The cottage was very clean and had everything you would want for a stay and the outside grounds are ideal for a family. Would definitely return.

Superb location, next to Portrush city centre with all amenities around you. Very good location to reach around the major spots on scenic route. Cottages are super spacious, clean, and best place for group of friends/family/couple. Loved my stay with warm welcome from Tom and his staff. Surely going back to this place!
