“Lovely place!”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Fantastic property that was both homely and affordable. All the equipment or comfort that you could ask for. Stylishly decorated throughout. We only stayed for 2 nights this time but I would go back and take our friends and their kids and we would have ample room for all.

Not too many restaurants close by in Castlerock but a reasonable chippy a couple of miles away and if you are feeling brave, pop into the local pub and ask for directions to the fab restaurant just past Bobs bar, down a country path, past the prison till the end of the road....that was a journey worth the effort....but I'll never remember the route again in my life!

The house is a perfect position for visiting all of the coastal highlights like Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Ballintoy and I can promise you the scenery will blow your mind, especially in the winter when we were seeing huge waves crash against rocks from dizzying heights!

Liked best: Downstairs bathroom when you're travelling with elderly!
Liked least: Lack of heating at first, would have been nice to get into a warmer house!
