Ballycastle, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
A charming, cosy, traditional farmer's cottage set in the quiet rural surroundings of North Antrim farmland. A wealth of oldie-worldy furnishings including exposed beams, feature fireplace and woodburner.

Just home after our first, but certainly not our last stay at this beautiful cottage. Our hosts made us so welcome and the place was so clean, warm and comfortable we did not want to leave. Absolutely everything was supplied, we could not have wished for more.

Management response:

Thank you for your very kind words and I am so pleased you had a lovely time and plan to come back again.
