A marvellous base for exploring the North coast
This is a truly fantastic location which is minutes from the Giants Causeway & Bushmills, set in serene countryside it is relaxing & quiet, well that's before the kids discovered the Karaoke in the sunroom, they loved it. The house is fabulous and extremely well appointed, with every conceivable gadget in the huge kitchen diner, piped music to every room is a great touch, bicycles were provided for both adults and children which was appreciated. As frequent visitors to the North coast we would usually stay in the Bushmills Inn, but never again, quality sleep without the banging of doors guarantees we will return to Bushmills Thatched Cottage in the near future and will certainly be urging our American & Canadian Family to give it a try when here, Thank you Tom for allowing us to experience your beautiful home.

Pleasantly deceiving
Our family stayed at Bushmills thatched cottage Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the cottage and would recommend it for family entertaining. At a glance it looks clean however it is in need of a deep clean. We had hoped to cook on the aga which is mentioned in all ads however it takes 2 days to heat to the required temperature so I would recommend you contact Tom before your stay to ask that the aga be prepared for you. Would definitely recommend Bushmills thatched cottage and hope to have the opportunity to return in the future.

Lovely break
Really enjoyed our visit the cottage its everything you could wish for.Downside was it advertises 4 bedrooms there are only 3 and also advertises disabled friendly but not if you want to sleep in a bed, bedrooms all upstairs which was a struggle as I am in a wheelchair. If you want to cook on the Aga which we did as it was Christmas it apparantly takes 2 days to reach temperature so make sure you request it to be lit prior to arriving.The setting is ideal, so close to the town and the owners have tried to think of everything that you might need.Nice touch that they left selection boxes for the three children under the tree.

Hi Lorraine, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Bushmills thatched cottage over Christmas. I apologize for not advising you of the front room downstairs that was designed as a wheel chair friendly bedroom with large door frame openings a couch that converts into a double bed, a wheel chair friendly wet room next door fitted with steady rails. We hope you were not caused to much inconvenience. As for the AGA ,it does take quite a while to heat and regulate. We try our best at all times to make our guest stay as memorable as possible and value their views hoping you will return. Best regards, Tom. .

Perfect place to explore the North Antrim coast
The house was lovely, warm and welcoming. The wine and raspberry jam was a lovely touch. It would have been helpful to have instructions on how to operate the TV.

Beautiful cottage
We had a wonderful weekend staying an the gorgeous Bushmills Thatched Cottage. It was decorated beautifully, had everything you could need and was spotlessly clean. Only a few minutes drive from Bushmills so a brilliant location. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend.

Excellent
This is a true Irish experience. The house is first rate and of extremely high-quality. Close enough to town yet in a very tranquil setting with beautiful views. The new thatched roof is very unique and adds a very cool touch.

Five stars just aren't enough!
I booked the cottage for a weekend in mid-April as part of the celebrations for my mothers 80th birthday. Photographs do not do this house justice. Easily located thanks to the great directions provided by the owner the house has a quiet rural location but is only a few minutes drive from Bushmills and the Causeway Coast. It came fully equipped with all those odds and ends so often missing - condiments, tablets for the dishwasher, welcome bottle of wine, etc. There are two large living areas in addition to the enormous kitchen / dining area; one a beautiful semi-formal lounge with turf fire (already set) and the other a more lived in, informal television room. Bedrooms were comfortable and warm. The only thing we couldn't find was the ubiquitous 'book of words' explaining waste arrangements, dishwasher instructions, etc. But that is a little like saying you were disappointed by your brand new Bentley because it only had one steering wheel! This a beautiful holiday let in a wonderful location. Book it now before I beat you to it!
