Lovely cottage, wonderful welcome!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I'd like to say that Rosalind couldn't have been any more welcoming! Communication before our trip was great, including directions for both a direct route from Belfast and via the Causeway Coastal route, and a couple of suggestions for things to do. We arrived in the pouring rain and because of our useless sense of direction, Rosalind was waiting in the awful weather to wave us down! There were plenty of leaflets etc in the cottage and Rosalind gave us a few more ideas, and there were several basics left for us, ie milk, orange juice etc, together with some lovely homemade jam which we would have taken home if we could have! The cottage itself is lovely, very cosy and plenty of heating so if you were visiting in the winter, you'd probably never want to set foot out of the door. The kitchen/dining/sitting area is well equipped - everything you need for however much cooking you'd want to do, a dining room table and four chairs, and comfy chairs for four. There is a log burner which was really nice to have going in the evening - although we visited in the summer, it was a British summer! There are two comfortable bedrooms, a double and one with two singles in a sort of bunk bed arrangement. We have two teenagers and they were very comfy in this room. There is wifi but this didn't work very well on our devices, but this wasn't a problem for us. We visited an activity centre near Limavady (around 45 mins away), the Giant's Causeway, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Ballintoy Harbour and White Park Bay, as well as Carrickfergus and Ballycastle on the way from Belfast. We had a very nice meal in the Bushmills Inn (lunch time menu), and if you're in Portrush, try one of the Ramore restaurants - we went to Coast which served pizza and pasta - very busy on a Wednesday early evening, but we didn't have to wait long for a table. It's not fine dining, but very reasonable if you want a cheap meal out.

In summary, I'd definitely recommend this cottage, and its owner!

Was honestly just perfect..

Clean and so beautifully quaint.. Had everything we needed.. The wood burner was an added bonus.. Would thoroughly recommend this get away.. So close to all local beauty spots.. Rosalind and her husband could not be any more welcoming.. Hubby even did a taxi run to bush ills so as we could enjoy a few glasses of wine with our evening meal.. Will definitely go back.. It was charming DL

An absolute gem.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Irish hospitality at its best.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic vacation at the Coves!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and I just spent a week at this cute little cottage. It's also great for a couple or a small family.

Our host, Rosalind is the greatest and the kindest. She was very helpful.

The location was what we expected, very clean and charming.

Lots of gorgeous locations near by. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend!!!

Yo do need a car.......

I was a bit apprehensive about driving to the left but got use to it right away!

Thank you Rosalind!!!
