“Wonderful place, beautiful views. We loved it!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I would have given this place an excellent, but for the stairs we had to climb to get to it. It is decorated nicely and the view is gorgeous. The first 3 days we were there we saw 11 rainbows! We also saw otters and a seal, diving ducks and swans. The little town is very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The kitchen is very nicely appointed and the living room has a tv/dvd player with some movies, too. The view out the doors is breathtaking. The balcony is only about a foot deep, so you can't really sit there. We put our chairs right in front of the open doors, though, and the effect is the same. If you are fit enough to climb the 40 steps up the spiral staircase, I would recommend this place highly! Thanks, Paul!!!

Many thanks for such a brilliant review. We're so glad you enjoyed it and you got all the wild life too. We've never spotted an otter!
As for the stairs, it's a free fitness class thrown in - 100 calories burnt every time.

We really loved this bright modern apartment as a change from twee dark holiday cottages.
It has lovely views and is in a beautiful area of the UK which is so quiet apart from the Giant's Causeway!

Many thanks. You have hit on the popularity of the Bothy; contemporary and stylish rather than rustic and twee. And a lovely quiet, scenic part of the country. What's not to like?
