  • "Had a great stay, cottage was super clean and comfortable, kitchen well equipped."

    we loved the woodburner once we figured out how to get it going ( we dont have one at home) Great base to explore Antrim and beyond.

  • "Rosslare Cottage was a fantastic and lucky last minute find, a real wee gem."

    Traditional, rustic, full of charm, yet comfortable and cosy. The fire burnt as hot as the sun, amazing heat, much needed for those cold winter nights. We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend to our friends and family.

  • "A very well appointed cottage in the heart of the N."

    Ireland countryside. Very comfortable and welcoming. Home from home. Lovely and peaceful and within easy driving distance of N. Irelands best and most beautiful scenic locations. Rosslare Cottage is half hour's drive to the east Antrim coastline. I highly recommend this retreat if you like home comforts and the tranquility of the countryside.

  • "Lovely environment; peaceful and pretty with daffodils under the trees on the lawn in front of the cottage."

    The off-road from Knowehead Road - which takes you down the hill to the cottage is in some need of repairs - with too many potholes nearer the top to even try missing some! I missed having a nice tubful of water to bath and relax in, found the shower quite primitive and didn't enjoy the cold in the bathroom when drying off - in spite of having the heating on full blast. Also found the stove difficult to adjust to as mine at home is straight-forward electric; the saucepans were HUGE to cook for just 2 people - even four. Lovely to watch the woodstove burning on the cold afternoons, even mornings , in the early spring. The lounge furniture was comfy too.

  • "What a fantastic cottage!"

    A great place to relax with all the facilities you need and more. Very comfortable and the location suited us perfectly. A good base to explore the beautiful countryside of Northern Ireland. Met with a lovely welcome basket which even included a welcome biscuit for the dog! Definitely had the little touches that make you feel as though your custom is valued by the owners. The only thing that I was not expecting was the track that lead down to the cottage - can see it being a little tricky to navigate in poor weather. HOWEVER....that said, it wouldn’t put me off visiting again and the “pot of gold” at the end is well worth it! Thank you for a lovely stay in a beautiful part of the country!

  • "The cottage is beautifully decorated and is extremely well equipped."

    The furnishings are of a high quality, the sofa, chairs, dining furniture are really comfortable and the beds are the best I have slept in in holiday cottages ( that includes the pillows!!). The location is great for exploring the counties of Antrim, Derry, Tyrone and Armagh as well as having easy access to Belfast. As well as the usual places, guests might visit the newish Seamus Heaney exhibition centre in Bellaghy. For safe, lengthy, off lead dog walking, besides the beaches, try Glenarm Forest and, while there, sample the food in the tea room at the Walled Garden. I had three problems with the cottage. Instructions on getting there are not as accurate as they might be., the TV package is very poor and (a minor point), a full length mirror would have been nice.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed the cottage and the surrounding areas. We are pleased to say that there is now a wider television package with Freeview channels available. Property Owner

  • "A very lovely cottage in a beautiful area made for a perfect holiday."

    This cottage is ideally placed making it perfect to visit anywhere in County Antrim, especially the north and north east coastline. The cottage is very well equipped and the furnishings are high quality and comfortable. The only drawback was the lack of mainstream TV channels (BBC, ITV, Ch4, Ch5 etc..) There were only a few cable channels and Netflix .... if you like that kind of thing. We loved Broughshane, which has a nice atmosphere and Ballymena is close by for all your shopping needs.
