We have really enjoyed our adventure along the Giants Causeway Coast. We simply can't decide what we liked the most. Around every turn there is a treasure to be found which fills your soul with every delightful sight and sound. When we returned with tired feet, the comforts of Coves Cottage and cosy fire was such a treat. The owners Rosalind and Jonny and family oozed with warmth and friendliness and were so accommodating and helpful. We even had a supermarket delivery ordered before our arrival which was all magically stored away and at the end of our stay despite a very early morning departure we were given a fond farewell wave.
The cottage is in a fabulous picturesque location and very central to be able to access all the beauty spots around the Antrim area. Highly recommended.
There is much to recommend this cottage. It retains the character of an old working farmhouse complete with peat or wood stove yet it has all the upgrades of a very nice 21st century home. It is out in the country yet within easy reach of the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Bridge, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle, numerous pristine beaches and lovely walking trails. A wonderful part of our experience here was getting to know our lovely hostess.
