I booked in several relatives to stay at Ashlea Cottages who were visiting from ROI and England. Everything about the place suited perfectly - their spacious cottage had plenty of room in all bedrooms, living room and kitchen. There was a 'homely' feel to the place and the kids loved it - especially the play park directly in front of the house. Tom was very helpful in booking the place and in passing on local knowledge to my family - excellent price too... highly recommend.

Very glad to be of service and many thanks for your kind comments, especially the one about the 'Homely feel' as this is something we try hard to create.

Tom and Gail had offered a weekend break in their cottages for up to 6people at a charity auction for Eating Disorder! I was very lucky to win this amazing prize at a bargain price, and we got real value for money
Ashlea cottages were ideally situated.... not too far from the Harbour bar.....for excellent dinning after brisk walks along the coastline to give you an appetite
Facilities were excellent after a long day out.....everything was at hand, Tom and Gail were excellent hosts.......Thank you both for the oppourtunity to have an amazing weekend.

Just returned from a fantastic winter break touring the Causeway Coast. Ashlea cottages was perfectly situated with just a short drive to Giants Causeway, Rope Bridge and Dunluce Castle, and wonderful coastlines all around. Whilst the weather was bracing ( to be expected in November) the cottage was warm and cosy, very clean and well presented. As we were the only guests this week Tom and Gail kindly upgraded us to a three bedroomed cottage which offered loads of space and home comforts. With full central heating, lovely fire, electric blankets (and even hot water bottles should they be needed) there's no chance of feeling cold once inside. Everything had been thought of including brollies just incase,and the beds were extremely comfortable which is unusual for self catering accommodation which sees so much traffic. Tom and Gail were also on hand with tips for local events taking place and help with anything needed ( and even some delicious cakes home made by their very artistic daughter - thank you). Whilst the weather unfortunately didn't allow for the outdoor activities to be open, I'm sure they are of great benefit in the summer. All in all a lovely trip and I would highly recommend this accommodation to families and groups of friend alike, as the accommodation lends itself well to sharing if that's your preference or you want an economical break. Thanks Tom and Gail for your hospitality.

We stayed in Ashlea Cottages as we were going to we wedding in Portrush. We hired two cottages at a very reasonable price for three nights in August. The facilities were good and the owner Tom was very helpful. He lent us a BBQ and even though we had not mentioned bringing a baby, he sorted out a cot for us. The cottages were for six people and they felt spacious. I would recommend the cottages to families or to groups of friends.

Stayed here for my stag with 13 other family and friends. The owner Tom was very accomodating and the cottages are alot nicer than expected. They have everything you want from a self catering acc and well located to enjoy the splendor fo the beautiful North Coast. Price is super reasonable for a weekend at £180 for the 4 bed and £230 for the 6 bed, my mate is considering a visit next year to celebrate his birthday and said he'd defo choose Ashlea Cottages. Spot on keep up the good work.

We have just come back from a week's family holiday with friends at Ashlea cottages and we had a fantastic holiday. There is a lovely play area at the front of the cottages which is great for young children. Guests also have use of the trampoline, tennis court, and pitch & putt over the road at the owner's property. We had one of the larger cottages that sleeps 8. The layout of the cottage was great and it was very spacious but I would say the cottage we had is in great need of updating.
The carpets were quite badly stained, the downstairs bedroom smelt musty, and the wordwork in the downstairs bathroom was mouldy and the bathroom also smelt musty/damp ... no amount of bleach got rid of the smell. We also had to clean the fridge and many of the utensils before we could use them.
The location of these cottages is great ... it's about a 20 minute walk into Portrush and ideally situated for touring the Antrim coast ... great beaches, short drive to Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Bushmills, and is just over an hour's drive from Belfast. Great spot!
