Excellent Bungalow on a Working Farm
We have just had our third stay at Slemish View. In the three years we have visited, the standard of accommodation has not dropped at all. Gladys keeps it in excellent order.If you like peace and quiet and a location to visit N.I. this is the ideal place. I would recommend a stay at Slemish View.

Quiet country location.
Very nice property in a peaceful country setting in good location for accessing intriguing sites in this area. We also enjoyed observing the cows and hiking to the old Norman fort in an adjoining pasture.

Excellent bungalow with a lovely owner.
WE have just spent another week at Slemish View the last one was September 2017. It is the perfect place for either a quiet rest or as a centre for exploring N.I. The owner Gladys is the perfect host, very friendly and will always help if needed. The bungalow is situated on a working farm. It is furnished to a high standard and comes with everything you need for cooking etc. The WiFi worked well during our stay and there was a good mobile coverage. I would recommend anyone to book Slemish View I'm sure they would enjoy their stay.

Excellent property!
My husband and I have just spent a wonderful week in Northern Ireland and found the perfect place to stay. Slemish View is a lovely property set in beautiful countryside but only a short drive from main trunk roads which lead to aĺl the places of interest to tourists. The bungalow is very well furnished, comfortable and has every amenity with lots of "little extras". We received a warm welcome from Gladys and she always found time to give us helpful "insider" tips about how to make the most of our visit. (You will find a Sat. Nav very useful.) Don't hesitate - Just book Slemish View!

Truly a home from home, excellent!
The owner was very welcoming and helpful, and had provided the basic essentials as far as bread, milk etc. The cottage was very well equipped, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The weather was extremely good so we enjoyed our many trips out with hot sunshine which is always a bonus. We saw the Titanic exhibition in Belfast, The Giants causeway, Dunluce Castle, Ballintoy, White Park Bay with bluebells and primroses, The North West 200 for a day, and Londonderry by train. A memorable holiday.

Beautiful conformable bungalow
Gladys made our stay so enjoyable! With her tips and she has many maps and books ready, full of information for travelling the area. It was like a home away from so comfortable and she had it fully equipped, she had thought of everything from have some bread and milk for us to having spare toothbrushes. It was a brilliant location for traveling both Belfast and the coastal route. It had lovely views and we looked forward to coming back to the lovely warm house each evening. Will be back in the future. Thanks for a lovely holiday.

Great base for visiting the attractions in the "north" of Northern Ireland.
Lovely cottage annex with excellent facilities but you might need a Sat Nav. It was a perfect place to base ourselves for visiting places as far apart as Londonderry and Belfast and the attractions on the Coastal Route between. Gladys was lovely and very helpful with tips and suggestions for places to visit and where to park. Will certainly consider staying at Slemish View again.

Excellent Bungalow.
We have just enjoyed a week in Slemish View. The owner, Gladys, is very helpful and friendly lady.. The bungalow is a lovely place to stay. It is very well equipped and it felt like our home for the week we were there. It is joined onto the owner’s home, but with its own entrance it felt more like a detached bungalow.. It has great views looking over fields to Mount Slemish in the distance. It is very quiet and situated in a great place to travel and see N.I. I would recommend any one to stay in Slemish View. We have already booked a week next year.
