First impressions were excellent, in fact, the cottage is even nicer in real life - immaculate! We enjoyed three beautiful days at the North Coast and the cottage is by far the best rental we have ever stayed at. Already planning to return for the mid-term break in February and have recommended it to family and friends!

We arrived on Friday in the dark so waking up in the morning to such awesome views was just breathtaking! The sounds of the sea right on the doorstep, the stunning views, the ever changing light and weather made for endless fascination and some pretty impressive photos. The cottage was comfy and cosy only aided by a roaring peat fire in the evenings. I have been to Ballintoy as a child and for day visits as an adult and I have never been aware of this lovely little cottage on this side of the harbour. Truly the most stunning location I have ever stayed in as agreed by all in our party. Cannot recommend highly enough!
