“Lovely people, lovely cottage and a great location”
Reviewed December 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Helen had baked scones for our arrival and John went out of his way to be helpful and was genuinely concerned when I was unwell. The cottage had everything we needed, including washing machine/drier and dishwasher, and was small but surprisingly spacious inside. We were very warm and comfortable, (bed was good). It was great to park right at the door and not to have to lug suit cases upstairs for a change. The location is ideal for exploring the causeway coast and the glens of Antrim and we had a day trip into Londonderry which was an easy drive. Belfast would also be an easy day trip.. We came across from Cairnryan on the ferry, having driven from Edinburgh so we arrived late in the day but it was an easy drive across from Larne. Supermarkets in Ballymoney, just a short drive away. Very quiet location. Any negatives? Well the TV is small, but we didn't go to Ireland to watch TV.

“Nice house and garden, friendly hosts. Delicious scones...”

Great place. Roomy and welcoming. Well kept and well provided.
There were scones awaiting our arrival and they were so yummy they didn't last long. Plenty of hot chocolate, tea, coffee, honey etc, so we felt well catered for.
Good location, too. Quiet and out of the way, but near enough to the towns to still be handy, with Portrush, Portstewart, Ballymoney and Ballintoy all within a short drive.
Car is necessary, however.

“luxury cottage”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Beautiful cottage sits in huge lawn area. About 30 - 60 minutes to major sites so has good central location. Very well equipped. Plenty of room for a family.
Very pleasant greeting from owners with ample advice and good info on cottage and area.

“Warm Irish welcome”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A lovely little cottage with everything we needed to hand. A very warm welcome from the hosts John and Helen, with Helen's excellent home made scones to greet us on arrival. Conveniently placed for the Causeway Coast.

“All around good cottage”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Well-equipped, close to major Antrim coast sights, close to grocery, easy to find. Homemade scones waiting for us on arrival. All necessities there. I would recommend bring washcloths if you'd like to have them.

“Great plaeaceful location near major sites.”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Will not repeat what others have said in detail. Good price, peaceful location, 10-15 min from all major sites. Cooking dinners instead of eating out again and again was great. can't go wrong here.
