Venture into the local town, Ballycastle, for a meal out with loved ones, where there's a good variety of eateries and pubs to choose from, as well as shops to stock up on ingredients to cook at home. For a day out, step back in time to the days of the Vikings and the Normans at Kinbane Castle, survey the coastline from the Bonamargy Friary, golfers can tee off at the Ballycastle Golf Club, or you can immerse yourself in the history of Ballycastle at the Ballycastle Museum. For a peaceful walk and a picnic, why not make your way to The Dark Hedges, an 18th-century avenue lined with intertwined beech trees, making for an idyllic wander. If you prefer time by the seaside, follow the coast and stop off at the quaint harbours, Portbradden and Ballintoy, before settling at Giant's Causeway, a picture-perfect nature reserve the whole family can enjoy.

    - This is the only property we have stayed in which has no instructions for heating controls, appliances, or recycling arrangements. A simple one page paper, or online guide, would be extremely helpful. - A small waste bin is needed in the bathroom. - windows need cleaning These small improvements would make a great stay exceptional!

    But unfortunately 2 weeks before our holiday I got bad news, cancer, and I am terminally ill, with only a short time left. I was determined to get this last holiday with my husband and his dad. The house is absolutely amazing. We all enjoyed our stay. The steps I could manage as it was only a few. The ground floor accommodation was very necessary for me. I have family and friends in the area and they came to visit me. Everyone loved the cottage. It’s perfect. We didn’t go out a lot, just enjoyed this amazing cottage. I would be back tomorrow. I had the most beautiful holiday ever. Thank you.

    Everything you needed was there. We had several evenings playing all the various games with our autistic grandson who made the downstairs snug his own space perfect. We went to Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede bridge, the Dark Hedges, Murlough bay, Rathlin Island and to Games of Thrones Studios. We will go back. We had delicious steak pies from Mckays butchers in Ballycastle, lovely local shops.
