Bloody disaster
I booked the cottage for 1 night to stay on 31 January 2022. I booked it only 3 days prior. Unfortunately I had to cancel the next day due to family members testing positive for covid. No refund was given and further more any messages I sent about a refund were not replied to.

Bushmills holiday
Good location and easy to find. Very spacious & clean. You need new pictures up of the house on this site as it’s been painted and wooden floors in the hallway which it makes it more modern decor which the pictures on the trip advisor site don’t do it justice. We had a lot of rain when we stayed so we stayed in one afternoon but the tv could do with an upgrade or a freeview box as it only had about 14 channels. Great it has WiFi in the property.

Peaceful,quiet and spotless
Just home today from a week at melagh cottage. Very easy to find and access the property. On arrival I was amazed at how clean and tidy and spacious it was, it’s very deceiving from outside! Lots of fluffy towels and bed linen provided. A few cleaning products in the cupboards and toilet roll etc meant we didn’t have to race straight out to do a “big” shop. Local shops are a short 10 min walk away. Very comfortable beds, big living room for relaxing and the best shower I’ve ever had! Wi-fi excellent speed and coped with our numerous devices without any problems. The garden is great for kids and pets with a good washing line which I made very good use of. Our days out were mostly beach based due to spectacular weather and melagh is so close to lots of beautiful beaches, we found our favourite to be ballycastle and loved how it was just a short jaunt to get there. We ate in most evenings and found we wanted for nothing in the cottage, lots of crockery,cutlery and a very modern cooker made it hassle free. All in all I would highly recommend the Antrim coast for a holiday and wholeheartedly recommend melagh cottage to stay in!

The perfect choice for us!
Melagh Cottage has become a favourite for us in the space of just a few days. As a group of 5 friends we wanted to go on a short break before we set off for universities near and far, and Melagh was a spotlessly clean, cosy and well-equipped home in such a peaceful neighbourhood that catered to our every need. Many thanks to Ian for his help and efficiency in reserving this cottage. We will be back for more!

"A lovely comfort cottage"
Enjoyed a few days here. Accomadation is comfort clean and modern. It is well equipped with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. Location is ideal for exploring the North Antrim Coast and surrounding area. As we have dogs it is difficult to find pet friendly accomadation but this was perfect, met all our expectations and more. Thank you Ian would definitely return.
