Unfortunately we only spent one night but wished we had more time there. Finding a laundry after weeks travelling meant we wanted to wash plenty of clothes. Drying was an issue but Tom took the excess clothes to dry back at the main house. Coming from the tropics, we weren't very experienced with the heating but again Tom came to the rescue and made sure we were comfortable. Great location, very peaceful but still close to everything. The tip on using the back road to get to the Giant's Causeway was extremely helpfull. If we ever come back this way, we will definitely be staying here.
