A beautiful Bothy; lovely local area; wonderfully hospitable hosts and the most fantastic place to wave goodbye to 2017 and see in 2018. Many thanks to April and Neil!
We have just completed an eight night stay at the Bothy. The Bothy is everything it is advertised to be. The place is neat, clean, tidy, cozy, and perfectly located for day tips around the Antrim Coast. It has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Although it was not necessary, April and Neil were readily available in case of need. We would definitely recommend it and will stay there again if we get back to Northern Ireland.
The Bothy will delight you. Afternoon tea was waiting for us when we arrived, freshly made scones with raspberry jam and clotted cream which was a great start to our Northern Irish holiday. The beds were extra comfy and the Bothy with its no fuss white walls, chintzy furnishings and very well appointed kitchen gave us everything we needed. The coastline is spectacular and we didn't see a crowd anywhere! Wide sandy beaches were safe and easily accessible and from a cliff top, one was home to a herd of cows where their grazing ran down to the sea..... The Giants Causeway is volcanic, Basaltic rock which was mined around here and exported from the now picture book harbours, to be fashioned into road setts. The local town is Ballycastle
where small shops will have everything you need. At Portrush on the coast, there is a very good Italian owned restaurant with the most amazing puddings you will ever see. Our hosts at The Bothy were April and Neil Salisbury who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Altogether it was one of our best holidays. Do go!
Our second visit to this property and will definitely visit it again. The cottage is quaint and pristine, it is home from home and a hidden gem on the North Antrim Coast. April and Neil are perfect hosts and the cottage is a credit to them. We were welcomed yet again with delicious homemade wheaten bread, scones and biscuits. The homemade marmalade is amazing and a perfect complement to the wheaten bread. Thank you April and Neil for making us so feel so welcome and for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage.
We had a wonderful stay at the Bothy. April was so inviting & the cream tea was delicious. The cottage was beautifully decorated & so charming. The garden was a great place for our 4 year old to explore & look for fairies. A great place to stay & explore the North Coast & the lovely town of Ballycastle. We will definitely be back.
Stayed with friends at The Bothy. Lovely place - couldn't recommend highly enough. Great welcome from April. The weather was bad, but it really didn't matter. Perfect relaxing break.
