“Just Heavenly”
Reviewed May 23, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a beautiful and peaceful place to spend a week. We can't praise this cottage and the owners Ann and Don highly enough. Everything you could wish for and friendly and helpful hosts. Loved the countryside, the walks, the views, the pubs and the music. We really hope one day to return. Thank you so much

“When can we go back??”
Reviewed April 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Absolutely loved this cottage. Had everything we needed and more! including wonderful hosts, beautiful countryside, charm, amazing wildlife and no need to put on the tv/gadgets etc! Wonderful just to sit with a coffee and look out of the window. Even our 11 yr old was happy reading a book and early to bed.
Perfect location for my husband and son's birthdays. So close to Ballycastle for our dinner out. Hopefully I might get taken there for my birthday/anniversary or because it's the weekend!

“Marvellous Anniversary and Birthday Weekend!”

person found this review helpful

It was raining when we arrived, but we received the warmest welcome from Don (owner) who has a massive umbrella in his hand in case we needed it --- very thoughtful of him. Upon entering, kids were so surprised to see a well-organised dining table with carrot cupcakes and scones as a complimentary. Don presented us with drinks for kids and adults. We had a very good impression on the moment we set our foot on the cottage. It did not fail us, it was the perfect choice for us. We had everything we needed. the bed is comfortable. En suite / bathroom is clean and big. Red squirrels came in the two mornings we stayed and it was such a lovely thing to see. the place is very relaxing. It was all we needed and we never expected it to be that great. It's a very cosy, cute cottage. Mobile signal is not very good in the area as well as wifi. But it did not affect our stay as we have so many things to do and it's a nice thing to be away from gadget (mobile phones, laptops and IPads) on holidays like this. All in all, it was perfect for our small family.

“A GREAT PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2015

I think I may have already done a review, however i am only too happy to praise this lovely place.We absolutely loved the Pilgrim Cottage, we had a 3 day stay at the cottage and did not want to leave. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had evertything you would need.
Anne and Don greeted us wihen we arrived with such warm hospitality and made us feel very welcome. Home made scones were delicious.
We were lucky enough to see the red squirril thet visits ..cute
Don and Ann were extremley helpful with attractions for us to see and encouraged us to take a walk in the woods which was awesome.
I can't say enough about the Pilgrim cottage we loved it. I have no hesitation in recommending Pilgrim Cottage.
Thank you Don and Anne for an awesome stay/

It's lovely to hear from you. Thank you for getting in touch. We are so happy you felt at home. Warm hospitality is our aim. The red squirrels continue to visit and amuse us. We now have a secret garden which is developing near the summer house and it's a pleasure to sit and watch them. We are pleased to say we have been awarded our 4star status again. We're keeping up the standard you enjoyed. It would be great to welcome you back some time!

“An amazing escape”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An amazing escape from the busy pace of life, Very comfortable, warm and light. It is fully equipped with all you might need. The welcome pack was very thoughtful after a long journey.
Plenty of space to park off road. The gardens are a delight with red squirrels running around if you are lucky. The Lodge is central for so many of the tourist spots and the hosts have ensured there is lots of information readily available.
Ann and Don are wonderful hosts ensuring that your stay is as good as can be, nothing appears to be too much trouble - thank you both!

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Really enjoyed our stay at Pilgrim cottage. Don and Ann were very warm and welcoming and provided really good information about the locality...restaurants, sights, places to visit. The setting is peaceful and there is a lovely garden to enjoy...especially watching for the red squirrels who came to visit the boxes just outside the back door. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. A perfect place to explore all the area has to offer....Glens of Antrim, Giants Causeway, Rathlin Island, Carrickareade rope bridge and all the lovely beaches and scenery
