Perfect accommodation!
We stayed here for almost 2 weeks to visit family. This was the first time all 3 generations were able to be in the same place since COVID. The kitchen was spacious and had sufficient pots/pans to cook with. Well-stocked with a toaster, kettle, fridge, freezer and microwave. The wifi was excellent and fast, and the TV came equipped with Netflix. The rooms are decent size for UK standard and come with very comfortable duvets. Located just 10 minutes away via motorway from the city center, or one can easily take the train to the city center (just 2 stops). All in all, it was a perfect accommodation that feels like home away from home.

A five star experience!
This is a gorgeous house. Rosemary is a lovely host and very helpful. It looks just as good as it does on the website. The beds are amazing, good quality towels, a well equipped kitchen, large modern TV with netflix and excellent wifi. We had a fabulous week here and it's a great location for touring the area. We all loved it!

Five stars all the way!
My family had a fabulous Easter holiday in the amazing Coach House! Everything is just perfect. Beautifully appointed bedrooms with linen to die for! I don't think I have ever felt so instantly at home. Kitchen so very well equipped, beautiful china and so much of it! Really couldn't recommend the Coach House highly enough. So hope to return again in the future

The amazing Coach House
We were very fortunate to stay 2 weeks in this amazing building. From the outside it look very old but inside the rooms are spotlessly clean with fabulous bedding and the fluffy white towels are to die for. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and provides everything needed for self catering. The icing on the cake though is Rosemary herself, a wonderful friendly woman who will give a warm welcome but wont intrude on your stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Coach House and would recommend it to everyone looking for clean well equipped holiday accommodation beside Belfast Lough. Thank you Rosemary.

Loved it!
Had a fantastic stay in the Coach House. I can honestly say that we have never stayed in such a beautifully clean property. The house is in such a great location, a few restaurants to walk to in the evening, right on the lough, a lovely walk along the beach or on the promenade that runs all the way through to Belfast itself. Rosemary was extremely accommodating and pulled out all the stops for us! Too much to see and do in Northern Ireland. My 2 teenage boys loved it, lots of outdoor trips, the coastline is truly spectacular. We will definitely be back. Lovely friendly people. Thank you so much.

Excellent accommodation for grown up family
This it the fourth time we have stayed at the Coach House. We have enjoyed the accommodation and the great location so much that we haven't bothered to look for anywhere else to stay when in Northern Ireland. The property provides everything a family could want for a comfortable stay - the property is close to the Belfast Lough side and to a range of shops and restaurants along the Shore Road towards Jordanstown (all within easy walking distance). There are even outdoor exercise machines located in parks on the lough shore in either direction, if you feel the need to work out. We have never been disappointed staying at Abbey Self-Catering and can wholeheartedly recommend any of the properties.

Fabulous!
The coach house was beyond brilliant! Felt right at home while visiting family for the week. Internet was really good and the kitchen was to die for! Location was very ideal with a 10 minute drive to Belfast city centre. Can’t thank Rosemary enough for being so accommodating. Already getting our bookings sorted out for next year! Will definitely be back again! :)
