“Lovely, charming cottage; excellent location”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Lovely, charming cottage located near to all of the main attractions on the coastal route. Excellent for dog owners as has access to large garden area which looks on to the countryside. Only really notice two issues - in order to reach the second bedroom you have to walk through the first bedroom so reduces privacy and there were lots of flies, although this was a general observation of the area not just the cottage. Overall booking was simple, the cottage was easy to find, clean and offered everything we needed for the 4 days we were there (myself, partner, 12 yr old and puppy). Excellent value for money.

Thank-you for taking time to write us a review.Whilst we are glad you enjoyed the cottage and surrounding area ,we are sorry that the cottage layout was not to your liking. This is clearly mentioned in the cottage information so that potential guests are aware before deciding whether or not to book.
It is unfortunate that being in the Country and surrounded by trees that we do tend to get a few fruit flies at this time of the year.Keeping windows and door closed when the lights are on in the evening usually helps preventing them coming in.!

We enjoyed out stay so much we want to book the cottage again for 2017. The welcome was warm, everything ready for a cosy retreat in front of the fire place, a large bunch of daffodils on the dining table which has a view across the valley towards Bushmills Distillery (at least in March). The atmosphere within feels authentic and peaceful, and we found the kitchen, lounge and bedrooms had everything we needed.

“A Heavenly Oasis”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Swallow Cottage lives up to its name! Lovely birdsong surrounds the property. We were drawn to the large and comfortable sitting room with panoramic views through every window and the cosy wood burning stove. A wonderful gathering spot to read, relax or enjoy a glass of wine.
On the bright days we enjoyed the patio and the views of the garden, complete with a visiting pheasant!!
Sally, the owner stopped in to visit and check on us and truly cared about our holiday. Highly recommend.
