little gem

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 : )

Great Wee Place

The Northern Star Cottage is a fantastic base to see all the wonderful sites the Antrim coast has to offer. Ballintoy is so beautiful and the people we met were very friendly.
The beds were clean and comfortable.
The sun shone right into the front windows in the morning and into the back in the evening so we really did not have much need for the central heating to be on but when we did the cottage was really warm in 5 minutes. The wood burning stove was a nice treat but we only lit it the last night as the cottage was so cozy.
There were some lovely touches such as Denby mugs and beautiful 100% Wool throws and bikes etc.
Now for the down side. If I am to be brutally honest, the kitchen doors are dark imitation wood, foil wrap, that were starting to peel off. This cottage is so quaint it deserves solid wood kitchen doors that could even be freshened up on occasion with satin wood paint if needed. Most of the large dinner plates had lots of chips and chunks out of them. I expect this was due to there being no dish drainer or basin.
The shower was only a trickle if the heating was on, but this did not cause us any bother as we did not need the heating on very much.
The shower door frames where quite mouldy and all the window curtains could do with a wash.
Please, don't let these few down sides put you off staying here as it really is a wonderful Place, with issues that could be easily remmedied.
We had a fabulous week and would recommend it, but just a shame, a few things let it down.
Clem and Jayne give you excellent info when you book and I wish them all the very best for the future. Also, thank you to them for the 2 lovely bottles of wine.
Cheers x.

Traditional Cottage

We stayed one week in the Northern Star Cottage at the Antrim north coast. Located in Ballintoy, between Ballycastle and the Giant’s Causeway it is a perfect place for touring the coastal region and the glens of Antrim. As a traditional Irish Cottage it is not very spacious, but comfortable and cosy. In the kitchen we found everything we needed. As it was almost tropical hot the entire week, we enjoyed the fire in the log stove only once at the only one colder evening.

Lovely little cottage in a beautiful place

We've just spent a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. It's very small but you can find everything you need and more in it, there's a place for every little thing you should need. The description of the cottage is perfectly right and the location is fantastic. We enjoyed the walk to Ballintoy harbour in the evening to watch sunset (it was a heartbreak to leave such a quiet and peaceful place sometimes;-). It's also ideally situated to visit the Causeway coast and the Antrim coast. Another great point was the nice weather almost all the week. Thank you Clem and Jayne for all the informations you gave us: we follow them and made lovely trips all over the area. Rathlin island is a must: we've seen the birds (puffins were not gone yet, great!) and made the walk you recommend to the Rue Point lighthouse to enjoy more than 25 seals lying on the rocks (Great!!!). We definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants authentic cottage, beautiful sea views, etc... We really hope to go back again soon!

Nice and cosy

Northern Star Cottage is a tiny cottage but really comfortable. The kitchen equipment is excellent. The only thing we missed was an electric watercooker. Making tea on the electric cooking-plates is a bit unpractical and gives a waste of energy. The weather was a bit cold this week, but the cottage was nice and warm. The shower was really great.
We enjoyed our welcome gift, a delicious bottle of wine.
The cottage is a perfect starting point for beautiful walks. The track to the Giant Causeway is breathtaking; we made a lovely walk to the famous rope bridge and a quiet evening stroll to the nearby harbour. We enjoyed the marmalade made with love by Mrs Darlington from the Glasses vegetable & fruit shop in Bushmils, which is a surprising well-equipped shop. For those who want to explore the great nature of Northern Ireland Northern Star Cottage is a nice and cosy place to stay.

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.
