  • "Our best Christmas ever."

    Cottage is set in beautiful place with amazing views. You find everything you need in there. There is space for all of us to be together but also spacious enough for everyone to have some me time. Spa jacuzzi is a heaven. The owner is a handsome hard working guy who works around the clock on the farm but always shows up when you need him. The welcome basket with goodies and the 2 Christmas trees were lovely. We felt like returning to grannies to warm house full of love. We will definitely be back soon

  • "Fantastic cottage, loved our stay there and it was a perfect base for so many places."

    Drew was a great host, he is friendly and very helpful. We loved being so close to the farm with a wee visit from the puppy and the calves being in the next field. The views are amazing and the hot tub was a welcome addition. Plus a lovely welcome pack that included fresh scones and shortbread. We would go back in a heartbeat.

  • "Braeside is in a fantastic location, with ease of access to all the sights but far enough away from everything to be peaceful."

    The cottage was immaculate, had everything we could want for a lovely relaxing stay. On top of the fabulous cottage the owner is first rate, checked that everything was how we wanted and was brilliantly welcoming. It was a pleasure to stay there and I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of travelling to Northern Ireland

  • "Positioned at the edge of the farm Braeside is a spacious cottage with lovely views of the surrounding countryside."

    The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable with three large bedrooms, a dining room, large kitchen, lounge and a sun room. It is ideally located for days out in Belfast or a trip north to the Giants Causeway. At the end of the day it was lovely to relax in the large hot tub.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay."

    The house was spacious, clean & comfortable. It was in a great location with amazing views. We were so glad to have the games and books for us and the kids. The hot tub was a real treat was all of us. Only thing I would say is the advert for the house doesn't do justice to how spacious and lovely the property really is! It just was so lovely. Thank you! Owner, Drew was very friendly. Popped in at the start and at the end. Lovely welcome pack. We were absolutely delighted with our stay and can't wait to be back!

  • "We feel the listing doesn't do justice to the actual property as it is far beyond what we expected."

    The overall atmosphere provided us with a place to relax at the end of each day of our trip, which is a tremendous mental boost for the next day. The hot tub and surroundings calm one's body and mind, tlly was the best home away from home we could ask for. The property itself is far larger than the photos would have you assume, with well-separated areas that are all connecher so families have plenty of space to themselves under one roof. We never found ourselves feeling anything was lacking inside the home,lly is fully fitted with all the appliances and amenities, even those we didn't expect to find. The immediate area may be farmland, but the local town is less than 10 minutes drive, with just over 35 minutes to reach either Belfast City or the Coastal Area so it is far out enough to enjoy some tranquillity but still close enough to go take in some of the gorgeous sights of Northern Ireland. The owner is one of the friendliest gentlemen you could meet and only added to our enjoyment of the home. The next time we are visiting Northern Ireland again, we would be sure to check on the availability of this home again since the only thing we regretted about this trip was not staying for longer. All the best to the owner for the wonderful experience and memories!
