Why Property Manager chose Larne
This is our Grandmother's house and has been lovingly restored. The house is surrounded by forest paths, hills to walk and the beach is less than a mile away. The traditional Irish pub 'The Meeting House' is literally 20 paces across the road opposite. You can have a very private time, read books and watch the extensive satellite channels or play the Playstation Games. Or Play Golf locally, visit Belfast - which is about 30 minutes away and still be right on the coast Road for one of the most spectacular drives in the World, an hour from the Causeway.As an adult Im still retuning and discovering new places and we hope we can share this with you.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is 18th Century Cottage with 21st century convenience. Every piece of antique furniture has a story and The chairs are Great Northern Railway and stamped with the names of long closed stations. The huge granite fireplace is made from kerbstones taken from the mountains of Mourne and used in Victorian Belfast streets - each with the mark of the men who carved them. Light the pot bellied stove - we will leave a log basket to fill it - and rest in the old leather library Queen Anne chairs we rescued and restored. The cushions are made from the pattern used on the Titanic. Double doors take you out to two patios - one in the garden where we love to sit and listen to the river running by, the other to the courtyard with its cow-tailed pump and massive gothic door, originally from a church at the docks in Belfast. It's a sun trap and very private, although you can hear the comings and goings of the village. The tongue and groove wood in the bathrooms have been reclaimed from the original house ceilings. When we took these down we found newspapers pasted to the rafters which told the news of the American Civil War in 1864. One of the themes upstairs is the 'Green Man', who appears in Victorian carvings above the doors and in the magnificent table in the Master bedroom. You have to put your finger in his mouth to open the drawer! We have used original art and limited prints throughout. The watercolours of the vintage cars in the Blue Bedroom give nod to the famous hill climb which happens every year in Cairncastle. The Gothic feel of the Master Bedroom with its massive Gothic Headboard (originally an altar in a County Down church) is a reference to the link the area has had with Game of Thrones as a location. We love the comfort of the beds, the double showers, the feel of woolen carpets and persian rugs on bare feet and the way we were able to reuse the original floorboards and kitchen table. Its wonky with paint layers on the legs but to us its perfect!

We have never stayed in a lovelier holiday property. Everything is high quality - super comfortable beds, very well equipped kitchen, lovely big bathrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful Cottage great place to stay for a family with teenagers.
We had a wonderful stay at the Corner Cottage. Beautiful, bright, and tastefully decorated with every attention to detail. I felt it was much more beautiful in person. Traveling with teenagers can be difficult, there was plenty of room for everyone. My 16-year-old daughter fell in love with the cottage. It has been beautifully renovated and has everything you need. The kitchen is beautifully updated and is well equipped with all the essentials and more. The beds and bedding were comfortable and clean and made for great night sleep. The bathrooms were clean and modern. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.
Quiet, peaceful perfection
The Corner Cottage was the perfect place for our mother-daughters holiday in Northern Ireland. It is no exaggeration to say that it could not have been better. Beautiful bedrooms, outstanding bathrooms, lovely kitchen and living room with a cozy little woodburner, we can't say enough about how much we enjoyed being here. The owners have retained the wonderful character of the cottage while including just enough modernity to please visitors. Planning a return visit already. Thank you Gail and Robert for this little bit of Northern Ireland loveliness. (We all fell in love with the frolicking spring lambs across the way!)

Corner Cottage is very comfortable, well fitted out, immaculate & cosy
We had a very enjoyable stay at Corner Cottage this February.
Bedrooms are spacious, well laid out, & the beds very comfortable for a good night's sleep.
Both the family bathroom & the one en suite extremely clean, bright & well equipped.
The lounge is cosy, with an easy log burner, comfortable seating, oldy world decor, large dining table & a large TV.
Kitchen is modern, very well equipped & again well maintained & clean.
Loved the garden & courtyard, can imagine it would be very pleasant in the warmer weather to sit outside for hours.
Handy having Mattie's pub opposite for Evening meals, reasonably priced & friendly, & helpful staff.
Cottage is close to the Coast Road, which is a lovely scenic drive, & close to Larne for all your shopping needs.
Overall, I would recommend Corner Cottage for either. a short self catering break or as a base for exploring Northern Ireland on a longer holiday.
Thanks Tim - it was great having you stay.
We loved staying at this beautifully renovated and immaculately presented cottage. It has everything you need for an enjoyable break and there was absolutely nothing missing. Super location for the Antrim Coastal path and day trips to Belfast. The local pub served lovely food......we ate there most days. Thank you for a great stay.
Corner Cottage, Cairncastle, Antrim
We had a lovely holiday at Corner Cottage. The Cottage has been beautifully fitted out. The bathrooms were excellent and the beds very comfortable. Could not ask for better. The garden was lovely as was the river/stream rushing past. The costal drive which is only minutes away from Corner Cottage is breathtaking, so enjoyed it all. Thank you to the Campbells for providing such a lovely Cottage. The Smiths Kent
