We stayed one night with Niki and Paul while travelling the coastal trail. I could easily have stayed longer. The Whins is out in the countryside a short drive out of Ballycastle. We found it easily. It's a lovely quiet location back from the road.
We had a warm welcome from the family and tea and scones served up to warm us up after a windy day out exploring.
The room was a good size and the beds were comfortable with nice clean linen. The bathroom was modern with a shower unit. The shower head holder needed replacing but Nikki apologised for the inconvenience of having to hold the shower head and I'm sure it was fixed not long after.
We had a very comfortable night there and the breakfast the next morning was excellent. The family have a lovely black Labrador dog which isn't allowed down in the guest quarters but being a dog lover I was introduced to him in the hallway and gave him a big tummy rub - lovely dog, would have happily taken him home with me!
If I'm fortunate enough to back in the area I would make The Whins my first choice to stay in the area!
