“Fantastic cosy cottage.”
Reviewed 9 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

What a beautiful cottage the Bothy is, we could not have wished for more in an absolutely idilic location. Everything to enjoy on the North coast is just on your doorstep. And the welcome from April was fantastic, cosy fire and afternoon tea what a lovely touch. Thanks for a lovely stay, we will definitely be back soon.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 8 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Our third stay in this beautiful cottage. April and Neil are amazing hosts with a real eye for detail. We stayed in the days running up to Easter, daffodils in every room and chocolate bunnies left for our two daughters. It really is a special hideaway and we look forward to returning in the near future. Would thoroughly recommend this property, home from home luxury x

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 6 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A really lovely cottage, tastefully presented. Peaceful and quiet, I slept well. The stove was a delight to come home to after a day’s walking and the cottage is warm and cosy.
April is a most welcoming host and I enjoyed the wheaten bread, cake ... and more! Highly recommend.

“A truly wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 28 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this charming cottage which has a finesse rarely found in self-catering properties. The attention to detail is immediately obvious from the welcoming homemade scones to the modern shower unit. Within easy reach of the beautiful Antrim coast and Glens, this is an ideal base ... but don't take our word for it, go and experience it for yourselves.

“Beautiful, cosy cottage”
Reviewed 6 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Just home after our first, but certainly not our last stay at this beautiful cottage. Our hosts made us so welcome and the place was so clean, warm and comfortable we did not want to leave. Absolutely everything was supplied, we could not have wished for more.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 3 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Just returned from our 6th stay at this charming cottage, my 3 year old summed it up when I asked her where she wanted to live, "the boffy" her reply. This place cannot be faulted if you want peace and quiet with all the comforts of home. April and Neil have every detail covered and keep the place immaculate. If you want to stay in self catering on the north coast this is a must
