little gem

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed in the cottage twice with my parents (from France) and daughter. It is a lovely little cottage - tiny but incredibly well organised (it makes you consider at all that badly used space at home!)- and the area is fantastic. We never tire of it. The cottage is particularly well situated because there is a lot to do around it with or without a car: there’s the harbour below .. and its coffee shop, the beach, the lovely walk to whitepark bay, to the rope bridge, it’s handy to the shop and pubs in the village, etc.
There is a lovely track along the cliffs that loops around. The cottage is just on the way and it makes for a very nice evening stroll.
Unfortunately this year every walk was punctuated by a shower.. which gave us magnificent rainbows (to my daughter's delight) but didn't allow us to live outside as much as we had last September (when we had been able to eat outside most days -lovely view of the white church, sea, sheep island and Rathlin from the table outside on the front lawn).
So lovely place... I would highly recommend it as long as nobody books when I want to go : )
Nathalie.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is tiny, but it contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sadly, the weather was so good that we did not feel a need to use the fireplace. Clem was very responsive when we had a minor problem with the front door, and it was fixed the next day. Ballintoy Harbor is beautiful, and the starting point for a wonderful walk around White Park Bay. Watch out for high tide at the point though. We found the nearby Red Door very good for breakfast, and the Fullerton Arms provided a fine dinner in the pub. Our stay was perfect in every way.

CALME ET SILENCE ( QUIET AND SILENCE)

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine dans ce petit cottage superbement aménagé et fonctionnel. Nous avons profité d'un temps magnifique pour visiter et randonner le long de la côte et prendre un bon bol d'oxygène. Comme les 2 autres cottages n'étaient pas occupés il y avait un calme absolu et nous avons passé de bonnes nuits!
Les balades sont nombreuses, les plages magnifiques, les villages typiques ....et la Guiness!!! Une excellente adresse dans une région extraordinaire

Tiny cottage, very basic in beautiful location

  • 3 out of 5
The draw is the general location, which is stunning. The cottage itself doesn't have a "view" but a short walk will make up for this. The cottage is fine for a few days but would be very small for more than a couple, or a couple with one small child! You definitely couldn't swing a cat in here. The Giants' Causeway is nearby although very touristy (well done though given so many people) but the coastline and surrounding countryside is wonderful.

Escape the rat race

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely little (about the size of 4 berth static caravan) traditional irish workers cottage in beautiful, peaceful location, ideal for exploring causeway coast. Traditional cottage with character but still with the modern comforts. Wood burning stove wood provided), nice extras such as cafetiere, bikes and bodyboards. (bear in mind local bikes rides involve mostly road riding, no issue whatsoever for adults and older kids, our little one hasn't the confidence yet so we stuck to riding up and down the lane and in the red door car park of an evening and did a couple of rides into Ballintoy village towards the park with little one on pavement.) Only 10-15 minutes into Bushmills and Ballycastle, both with shops, cafes, restaurants, little supermarkets. Bushmills is slightly closer, not as big as Ballycastle but still has 2 butchers, 1 green grocers, 3 little supermarkets, several cafes, shops pubs.

Food all good, loads of independant butchers, green grocers and a few bakeries. Lots of lovely restaurants and cafes also. The facilities provided for locals and tourists in Northern Ireland are amazing. Plenty of public toilets, picnic areas with bbq rests on benches, shelters, and the play areas for the kids are everywhere and really well thought out. The rest of the UK could really take an example from NI.
As for what to see and do, there's loads. The possibility for walking is endless, Glenariff is beautiful and peaceful, waterfalls are superb there. Anywhere along the cliffs on the causeway coast. Carrick-a-rede and Giants causeway are a must but go early (we went to both at 10am and it was just starting to fill up) to beat the crowds and get a real feel for the atmosphere. Portrush is a nice traditional seaside town with fair, amusements harbour, Waterword indoor swimming with slides, pirate galleon etc. Watertop farm is good, lots to do, but price will rack up if you have several kids. A trip to Folk and transport museum near Belfast is worth the drive, we were there all day and felt like we missed stuff. Boat ride to Rathlin is good, then bus tour round island shows you all the sights if you are not into walking (takes about 1 1/4 hours) You can buy tickets before you get there for £2 each, this tour was good, but we noticed there was another company when we got across offering tours for only £1 each, bus went to the same places, but didn't hear the commentary on that tour to know whether it is any different. Great place to spot seals.

  • 4 out of 5
great walks from door, close to Giants Causeway etc etc...all as in info given before arrival. other 2 cottages not occupied and only 2 of us in Northern Star so cant comment on 'crowd-ability', and the weather was good, so cant comment on being housebound on bad weather days. didn't use tv. was surprised that there was no microwave...but survived! otherwise well equipped. would recommend.

The Causeway coast is rich with natural beauty and good places to eat. Only a few minutes away from your traditional Irish cottage you find such wonders as the Giants Causeway, Whitepark Bay, Torr Head, Rathlin Island,

The White Rocks Portrush and the Bush river that feeds the famous Busmills Irish Whisky Distillery. Great resturants and traditional pub fare helps to replace the calories lost on the beautiful coast walks. The National Trust has protected many miles of beautiful walks along beaches that join cliff tops to headlands from where you can watch the flow and ebb of the great tides that sweep in an out of the Irish sea from the North Atlantic. Fishing is rich as is the sea bird life on Rathlin, reached by regular daily ferry crossings or with fast RIBs that offer tours of the area. Some of Ireland's most famous golf clubs such as The Royal Portrush are only a few minutes away from your base in Ballintoy. To the south the majestic 7 Glens of Antrim are only half an hour away.

Other Activities: coastal sea trips, nature trails.

Golf: Ballintoy is located between the world renowned Royal Portrush and Ballycastle Golf Club. The beautiful Bushfoot Golf Club is a few minutes drive. All three clubs boast North Atlantic beach fronts. There are some 7 Golf Clubs in the area.
