“Beautiful house, perfect location!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed in the owners adjacent property, 'The Coach House', with my husband, children, mother-in-law and friends.
The house was absolutely wonderful and spacious with ample parking, in a perfect location with easy access to the local area and motorways for trips further afield. It is located very close to Belfast Lough and with private access to the footpaths running alongside.
The house was beautifully presented with everything that required for our stay. The bedrooms are a true delight and the kitchen/diner extremely spacious and fully equipped (essential when travelling with children!).
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be recommending this properties to our friends and will be returning ourselves.
Car is essential if you want to make the most of your stay in NI.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review my property in such detail and for awarding it 5 Stars. You and your family were perfect visitors and if I was to give guests Star ratings you would certainly get 5 Stars for the excellent way you left the property on departure! Hope we shall see you and your family here again.

“Perfect home away from home.. Only convenience missing was a downstairs bathroom.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Really had a fantastic holiday. Felt immediately at home on arrival. Fantastic beach promenade at the bottom of the road with a park which had outdoor gym equipment, which I used every morning on my run. The house is fully equipped with comfortable furniture and tasteful decoration. Beds very comfy and plenty of hot water, enough for all and there were nine of us. Perfect distance from all attractions. Got bus into city several times. Recommend Titanic tour, dark hedges, tour of murals and visit to Derry. We would return. Great shopping !

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our beautiful house and for your kind and enthusiastic comments. Thank you for mentioning that there is lots of hot water - we put a lot of effort into ensuring that our guests’ comfort is paramount hence the top quality beds etc. When we did the refurbishment we thought that 3 bathrooms upstairs would suffice but I take your point that one downstairs would be useful and there is space where we could put in a full shower room which we shall do at some stage in the future.

“A great place to stay, very well located - superb accommodation”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

We have stayed in the Coach House six times since 2009 - in fact we were the first guests to stay there after it was refurbished in 2010 . The fact that we keep going back there is testimony to its charm and qualities. It is by some distance the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in either in Europe or UK.

The Coach House is very well connected with very fast road links to Belfast via the M5 (we have on occasions, for example, reached the ferry terminal in 7 minutes and Belfast city centre in about 15). It is also situated at the start of the Causeway Coastal route, going north up the Antrim coast road which is stunningly beautiful and leads to the Glens of Antrim, Dunluce Castle, the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede, Whitepark Bay and the Giants Causeway -amazing!

The accommodation is first class. The large kitchen is very well equipped. Three of the five bedrooms have en suite facilities. The bed linen is luxurious.
The Lilian Bland suite has a wonderful four poster bed and views overBelfast Lough to the County Down side . The sitting room which is very tastefully furnished has a beautiful outlook on a private and charming walled garden which is very thoughtfully planted out and since we first saw it it has blossomed profusely. We love it for many reasons including the friendliness of our hosts Rosemary and John; they have always made us feel at home. Their beautiful house is the big one beyond the high walled garden. Their front lawn rolls down towards the Lough ...magical. There are great walks along the nearby coastal path along the shores of the Lough.

The Coach House is situated in a quiet private road with a view of the Lough at the end of the road and there is secure private parking.

We would thoroughly recommend the Coach House.
