Beautiful large house not too far from Ballycastle where there are bars, restaurants and supermarkets. I was with a party of 13 celebrating a 50th birthday, so we weren’t sightseeing but there are many tourists attractions nearby although you need a car. Definitely be back.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Due to the size of the house and to be energy efficient, electricity and oil are metered and charged for separately. This prevents us from putting an extra 'blanket' charge onto every booking to cover these charges, so smaller groups are not unfairly paying more than they would use. The charges are required to be paid for on departure. Towels can be provided for a small fee, these are hired and laundered from an outside company.
£150.00 security deposit will be required with all bookings, this deposit will be held by holiday lettings and refunded 1 week after departure provided no damages have occurred.

Forestside cottage will accommodate a further 7 guests if required, please request this when enquiring about Forestside House, it is a separate listing and not included in the price of Forestside house.

Please note! Bookings for Hen nights or stag nights are encouraged and must be declared as we will require a higher security deposit.

Pets will incur a charge of £6.00 per...
