  • "Great location , as tourist board listed , missing basic welcome pack ( milk, bread butter etc ) as in most other places we stayed ."

    Heating not acceptable , winter in NI and couldn't leave on all day or for longer than 1 hour. Very disappointed with Irish hospitality / lack of it .

  • "Lovely cottage, a short drive away from Bushmill’s which gives you everything you need."

    Great location for exploring the surrounding area. Ballintoy, Giants Causeway etc. Had a great holiday and loved the location. Facilities in the cottage were great for the four of us. Kitchen had everything we needed too. My only issue were with the beds. I slept in the largest room and I think the mattress has seen better days. Very uncomfortable and glad to get home for a good nights sleep. Apart from that it was brilliant. Thank you so much.

    Wifi ok. Good parking. On working farm, but very private and very quiet. It is perfectly placed for exploration of the causeway coast.

  • "Great location, just a few miles fron Bushmills and about 5 miles from the Giant's Causeway."

    The Causeway Coast was a great holiday destination. The property was excellent and provided with all we needed, on its own short section of road off a country lane. Thanks to James the owner and Sykes for another great place to stay.

  • "The property had everything we could have needed and was in an excellent position, we really enjoyed our stay."

    The kitchen was well equipped and a lovely space to cook and eat. I loved the reading room it was so relaxing to sit there and read my book in the evening. The only slight negative was that the beds were quite uncomfortable and the one in the large bedroom squeaked a lot when turning over in bed so we didn’t sleep that well during our stay.

    Fantastic home from home kitchen. The location is just perfect to explore the Antrim Coast, nothing is more than 20 minutes away. Recommend eating at Tartine at the Distillers Arms in Bushmills. Don't miss the beautiful walks from Portballintine , you can walk all the way to The Giants Causeway or take the loop around the golf course. Will definitely return to Rosies's Cottage and highly recommend.

    The house was clean and had everything we needed. The only negative would be the mattresses which weren’t very comfortable. Other than that we had a great stay.

  • "This is a a great holiday cottage well located about 2 miles south of Bushmills so ideal for exploring the Giants Causeway and Causeway Coast."

    It has everything you need and is warm and comfortable. The owner is very welcoming and ready to please and be helpful. Just a couple of things I would mention: - Mattress toppers would make the beds more comfortable. A convex mirror placed at the end of the lane would make it easier to get out on to the road. You can't see when trying to exit the lane especially with the hedges having grown at this time of year.

  • "Our stay at Rosies Cottage was truly relaxing."

    The cottage was beautifully fitted out, especially the kitchen. We were greeted by the owner once we had settled in. This cottage is superbly positioned for exploring the Antrim Coast. The Glens, Londonderry were easily accessible and the Giants Causeway just a few minutes away. For GoT fans there are several sites where the series was filmed. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions a number of places required pre booking whilst some closed. However, this did not spoil one of the most relaxing holidays we have had.

  • "We rented the cottage during a period of very cold weather but the owner had not heated it before we arrived so it took ages to heat up."

    They also have set the boiler so you can only keep the heating on for one our at a time so you have to constantly press the button to turn it on again. Also the dining table cannot accommodate 6 adults comfortably.

    The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. The cottage is well-equipped throughout - the kitchen is fantastic! The whole area around Bushmills is very scenic with lots to do - walking, sight-seeing etc. All the local people were very friendly and we were lucky enough to have good weather apart from the first day. We would love to return here.

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday to Northern Ireland."

    The cottage was the bees knees! It provided us with a home from home during our week exploring and is situated centrally for the North Antrim coast. The whole week went swimmingly, we ate in Bushmills one evening at the Distillers Arms. The meal was excellent, as was the welcome and service we received. We also had one night fish and chips from the Hip Chip. Top notch fish and chips. Every other evening we catered for ourselves in the well equipped, large kitchen at Rosie's Cottage, then sat in front of a roaring fire for a couple of hours chat before retiring to the really comfortable beds for the night. A basket of logs was provided for our first couple of evenings but after that we called in at the Maxol Service Station on our way from the village for logs and peat. We did our main shopping at Asda in Coleraine and got bits and bobs from the Spar on Main Street, just opposite the Old Bushmills Distillery. We enjoyed visits and walks to the Giant's Causeway, Portrush, Coleraine, Portstewart, Castlerock, Ballintoy, Ballycastle and a day at Belfast Zoo. We had tea and scones at The Wee Cottage at Dunluce castle at least three times during the week, sitting in front of the open fire. All in all, we could not have asked for a better week's holiday. The best part of each day was settling in at Rosie's Cottage in the evening, planning our next day's adventure. We would highly recommend the cottage and look forward to a return visit in the near future.

    Absolutely loved everything about it. Host gave a very warm welcome. Had nothing to worry about during our stay, host left ample amount of towels, tissues, cleaning products and hair dryers in every bedroom. Saved so much of my running up and down in the cottage. It was very quiet and peaceful in Christmas holidays, just what we were looking for.... our life away from busy London!

The property

Rosies Cottage is a beautiful period farmhouse offering high-quality accommodation just 3 miles from Bushmills in County Antrim.

Combining the old farmhouse with a modern barn conversion, Rosies Cottage has been finished to a very high standard to provide an exceptional holiday home for a large family or group of friends.

Rosies Cottage is spacious and beautifully decorated throughout in calming neutral tones.

It offers a mix of modern convenience and lovely character features, like exposed beams and stone walls and floors.

The kitchen/diner is fabulous, fully equipped with an island unit and there's a separate utility.

The living room has ample comfortable seating for 6 adults and a wood burner, making it suitable for holidays year round.

In the converted part of the house, which was once an old milking parlour, you'll find a quiet reading snug with a feature open fireplace, a superb bathroom with bathtub, separate shower, basin and WC, and a character king-size double bedroom with a feature stone wall.

Upstairs are a further two bedrooms, 1 twin and 1 double, both with ensuite shower rooms.

Outside there's a lovely enclosed patio garden that's safe for children and the ideal place to sit and unwind, perhaps with a drop of the local whiskey.

There's also off-road parking to the front of the house.

There's so much to see and do in nearby Bushmills, just 3 miles down the road, that you may never need to travel further, although the Blue Flag beaches and the outstanding golf course at Portstewart are just 20 minutes away.

Bushmills is home to a heritage railway, a range of restaurants, a 9 hole golf course and a distillery.

It's also the gateway to the Giant's Causeway, so make sure you visit the visitors centre before you set out to see this wonder of the natural world.

And don't miss the extraordinary Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge linking the mainland with the island of Carrickarede.

County Antrim has it all - from the stunning Causeway Coastal route to garden trails and waterfalls.

Episodes of 'Game of Thrones' have been filmed using the stunning scenery of County Antrim as a backdrop, so don't miss the Game of Thrones themed high tea at the BallyGally hotel.

Walkers and cyclists alike love the open landscapes and challenging terrain and there are plenty of great bars for a pint when the day's over.

Just three miles from bustling Bushmills, Rosies Cottage is the ideal holiday base for lovers of the great outdoors at any time of year.
