Lovely cottage in a spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful week at Fallowvee cottage. It has everything you need for the perfect "get away from it all" break - sea views, the majesty of the Glens and even the odd seal and dolphin. The cottage lived up to all our expectations - beautiful views and very comfortable. Thank you to John for all his help and the warm welcome. We would love to return.

Stunning but a little neglected

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is comfortable and in a stunning location with dramatic views across the sea towards the Mull of Kintyre, and well equipped with 2 fridge/freezers, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. We were given a really warm welcome by the host John. The wifi was reliable and strong and the TV had Sky. However it’s fair to say that it’s in need of a little TLC: some of the windows (including one of the big French windows) have blown double glazing meaning that they are permanently misted up, the carpet is stained with water marks, a few kitchen floor tiles are broken, and most seriously the mirror opposite the gate to allow a driver to see traffic coming was also damaged and so unusable. These are all relatively minor issues (although the latter would be a problem if you were there alone with nobody to see you out) and we would consider staying there again if we were in the area.

Beautiful cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

John the host met us at the cottage and could not have been more helpful, everything was ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is very attractively furnished and you couldn't be closer to the sea! It was very relaxing lying in bed listening to the waves.

The cottage is a 2 or 3 min drive to Waterfoot where there is a food shop for supplies, slightly further away is Cushendall (approx 10 min drive) which is a pretty little village with good shops, restaurants and a tourist information centre. The cottage is ideally located for exploring the area, whether going north or south on the spectacular coastal road or travelling inland to the Glens of Antrim.

Thoroughly recommend a stay here!
