Wonderful!
Just had a fantastic 3 night stay at Isle Cottage. We have precious memories of previous stays when our children were small and it was great to create new memories now they are young adults. The location is excellent for exploring the North Coast and we were lucky enough to have brilliant weather. The house is extremely comfortable and has everything you need, a real home from home. It is also immaculately kept. We look forward to our next visit!

Excellent stay
We’ve just returned from a 3 night stay at Isle cottage and it was exceptional! Check in was so easy, tea/coffee & biscuits were left for us as well as the heat being on. Paul was so helpful in the emails prior to us coming nothing was a problem. Barbara was great also everything was left in perfect order, place was spotless. Fab location- so peaceful but yet so handy to all the main attractions at the Port. We both had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend the cottage. The only downside was that it was booked up for when we are next off!! We especially loved that the garage was spacious enough to put our car away in the evenings. The table and chairs for outdoors were also great, enabling us to enjoy a disposable bbq in the sunshine. First class trip all around, we will be back. Thanks again

Wonderful!
I couldn't recommend Isle Cottage enough,especially if you love the north coast but like to be out of the busy tourist towns. This wee cottage has all you need to feel cozy and make yourself at home. It is really well equipped and it is lovely that all beds are ready and fresh towels in every room. The views are beautiful and the upstairs living space is really bright and airy. We also had the best weather of the summer, so it was useful having the washing machine to do loads of soggy beachwear everyday. We really hope to book Isle Cottage again.

Lovely holiday home for Family or Friends alike
The location is ideal to visit the stunning coast line of Giant Causeway as well as lovely beaches near by. The Town of Bushmill is home to the Bushmill distillery that was a very interesting place to visit. Not far to the west is the town of Port Patrick that we visited and enjoyed. Not to forget to mention the very friendly and helpful local people. The holiday cottage is spacious and modern and very well equipt. I liked having the living area upstairs to enjoy the seas views in the distance.

Perfect Holiday Home for Family
Isle Cottage is in a great location to visit Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Dark Hedges, Carrick A Rede bridge etc. This is a lovely family holiday home very well maintained and very clean, with everything you could possibly think of for your stay. When we arrived we where met by Barbara who manages the property, she is such a lovely lady and even brought us fresh milk and a packet of chocolate biscuits. Would highly recommend Isle Cottage and will definately be back.

Family Friendly North Coast Holiday home
Lovely house, very well appointed and in a great location to explore the North Coast, we would definitely hope to return again soon. There were 6 in our party, 2 adults, 2 older and 2 younger children and there was loads of space for us all. Many thanks also to Barbara for the warm welcome and allowing us to drop our bags off early, very much appreciated.
