Owner was lovely and provided milk etc for us which was so helpful when we arrived very late at night. And the Christmas tree really made us smile. FYI The sink in the upstairs toilet takes a long time to drain so probably needs a quick clean out.
The cottage is beautifully maintained and everything works properly. Lovely owners, ideal location ......... absolutely perfect for a quiet break.
The cottage is a barn conversion and is just lovely- very warm and comfortable and quite big inside with everything you could possibly need. We had milk and biscuits, flowers and chocolates on arrival which were a lovely surprise. It is on a working farm and the owners live nearby. We had our own front drive and large sunny back courtyard garden, overlooking countryside with cows in the field next to us. It is a good base to explore the whole of the Antrim coastline which was beautiful and interesting
