We had the pleasure of staying at Meadow Cottage last month and only wished we could have stayed longer. Robert and Karen did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible, greeting us personally and showing us around the cottage, making sure we knew how to use everything. The extra little touches like the freshly baked bread, jams, fresh milk only made our stay even more special. The large fluffy towels, the wonderful hot showers (with great pressure - something not often experienced in our travels), the ability to cook ourselves a meal, the wonderfully comfortable beds made us feel like we were in heaven. It was in a lovely and quiet area but was just minutes from Bushmills Distillery, Dark Hedges and all the other sights in the area. Perfection guaranteed. Would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage for a stay but try and make it longer than we did. If we were coming back to the area it would definitely be our first choice of places to stay.

Dear Patricia,
Thank you so much for such a kind review. We hardly recognized ourselves or Meadow Cottage! We are delighted that we managed to get so much right for your all too brief stay. We do try very hard to make every individual's stay as special as we possibly can however we always feel we can do better and will always strive to that end.
Thank you so much for staying at Meadow Cottage, reviewing it so positively and please come back and stay longer next time.
We trust that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday here in the Emerald Isle.
Kind regards
Robert & Karen

“Excellent accommodation, great location, friendly owners.”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent a week at the beginning of April in Meadow Cottage. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by Karen. A delicious welcome pack was waiting for us in the kitchen (even a few dog biscuits for our four legged friend). The cottage was very warm, cosy and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality crockery and utensils. The main double bedroom is down stairs. The bed was very comfy and there was plenty of hanging and storage space. The second bedroom is upstairs and has twin beds. Once again, comfy beds and lots of storage. The location of the cottage was perfect for us. Only a short drive into the village of Bushills. A ten minute drive to The Giants Causeway or Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge. (both National Trust locations and well worth a visit). There are several great beaches only a short drive from the cottage too. The cottage is joined to the owners main house but this does not cause any issues at all. This is a property I wouldn't hesitate in recommending. It ticked all the boxes for our family holiday.

Hello Krista,
It really was a delight to have you and the family stay at Meadow Cottage as well as the lovely Bodger! Thank you too for taking the time to review your stay and marking the cottage so highly. In fact since you stayed we have changed the downstairs bedroom furniture by incorporating two new bedside cabinets and a lovely matching chest of drawers . You were also the first to experience the new bigger, better, brighter Panasonic TV and DVD player. We were just happy that we managed to set it all up for you before you arrived as neither of us are great experts in the technology stakes! We really do want to only offer the best to those paying their hard earned money to stay here. We ourselves have had too many poor experiences of self catering cottages in the past.
As you found, the area here has so much to offer especially if you enjoy outdoor pursuits. The beaches are great for dog walking or just relaxing on the lovely sandy shoreline and as you state some of the other attractions are not to be missed.
Thank you once again for staying in and reviewing the cottage and we hope to see you all back again one day soon.
Best wishes and Kind regards to you all in Cheshire.
Robert & Karen.

Meadow cottage is a lovely, clean and modern cottage. It is handy for all local attractions and set in beautiful surroundings. Karen gave us a lovely welcome and the dogs were an added bonus... Our own dog thoroughly enjoyed having them there! Lovely and relaxing stay.

Hello,
Thank you firstly for choosing Meadow Cottage and secondly for giving such a positive review. We do appreciate both very much. We delight in seeking to offer quality accommodation even for our beloved four legged friends. We have often found that, in our own experience, it has been very hard to find places that provide really good clean and comfortable hospitality when we also want to bring the pets. We have tried therefore to make this and important part of the guest experience at Meadow Cottage and hope to continue in the same manner.
Thank you again for staying and we hope to see you all again soon.
Best wishes
Robert & Karen.

“Spacious and well equipped accomodations for two couples.”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A well located property not far from many sites such as the Giant's Causeway, Bushmill Distillery and Dunluce Castle. Thoughtful touches such as available tea and milk made us feel welcome. The unit is well equipped for cooking but we took advantage of nearby restaurants. A car is required and a GPS unit advisable.

Hello Jack,
Thank you for staying at Meadow Cottage and for placing your kind review, and our apologies for only just responding to it. It was a pleasure to have you to stay and we are delighted that you found everything satisfactory, as we do endeavor to get things right for guests every time. You are right about a car! It is strongly advisable when staying here to have transport unless you are a keep fit fanatic and insistent on walking three miles each way to the nearest shop. That said the peace and quiet of the countryside in our opinion far outweighs the disadvantage of being a distance from the shops.
Thank you once again for staying and taking the time to review your time here so positively.
Kind regards
Robert & Karen.

“The perfect retreat for relaxing with a lot of love put into details”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a amazing stay at Meadow Cottage, Karen and Robert are great hosts and always happy to have chat with you, we also had a lot of fun with their two dogs.
The cottage was very clean, the interior was luxury - especially the bathroom - and a lot of effort was put into the lovely decoration. The kitchen offered everything we needed for perfect selfcatering.
In the evening you could enjoy the scenic view from the living room.

We want to return to return as soon as our daughter is born.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in Meadow Cottage for five nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. All the rooms are nicely decorated, and there is a lovely, modern bathroom with a fantastic shower. The kitchen is well kitted out and also has a dishwasher and a washing machine. The owners are most pleasant - very friendly and helpful. The location is in the country but is convenient to all the main tourist attractions on the north coast, provided you have a car. We would definitely stay here again.

“Excellent stay in exceptional accomodation”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here with our 10 year old daughter for a week in July. From our arrival to our departure Robert and Karen could not have been more welcoming. We were greeted with the most extensive welcome pack we have ever seen and cottage itself is very warm, spacious and immaculately clean. It is perfectly located for visiting all the nearby tourist attractions and lovely walks can be embarked upon from Bushmills village. The cottage is situated in an idyllic setting surrounded by a host of wildlife. We would love to come back and stay again soon.
