  • "The cabin is beautiful and spotlessly clean."

    My only concern was that the mattress in the master bedroom is pretty worn out.

  • "Very clean and comfortable everything you could need."

    If you like peace and quiet and close to Giants Causeway and various other attractions this is the place for you.

  • "The cabin was ideally situated for our visit to the area."

    The place itself was a real home from home. We were able to do and visit all the places that were on our list. All in all a great holiday.

  • "Our first visit to Northern Ireland and what a wonderful week we had!"

    The cabin was in a perfect location for all of our adventures along the north coast and further afield. It was cosy and relaxed,well positioned in a lovely garden and driveway that was safe for our children to play in. We found it had ample room for us as a family of 4 and amenities well thought through including dads and magazines for children, adult fiction books and leaflets/books of local areas, plenty hooks for coats, bags, towels etc, hangers, hair dryer, extra blankets. Could perhaps do with an updated full dinner set (there was only 1 side plate for example, and mis match of cups and mugs) Mostly very clean eg floors kitchen bathroom surfaces, but could do with a deeper clean behind and under furniture. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very pleased with our choice of accommodation.

  • "Lovely place and very well situated for the causeway coast, the beds were very comfortable and the views stunning!"

    like others have said not much room for more than 3 to eat at the table but this wasn’t a huge problem for us. The only negative was that there weren’t enough glasses and side plates for everyone to have at a meal time but this wasn’t huge and could easily be rectified. All in all a fabulous week and we would definately return.

  • "The cabin is great and the views from the veranda are amazing it’s a shame you can’t see them from the cabin except when washing up."

    The kitchen is well equipped for 1/2 people but you might struggle with 3/4 due to lack of large pans. There is no microwave which was a pain for me no easy meals after getting back late. The shower was great but I found the main bedroom very darks and the mattress uncomfortable (soft and lumpy). The lounge was a good size but I’m not sure 4 could eat easily around the table. Wi-Fi and TV very good but the sofa seats were hard and uncomfortable and you could feel the wood base in areas. Would I stay here again no because of the bed, sofa and microwave but the site is lovely and well kept and in a great location so I would try the caravan next time as it has a microwave.

  • "We had a glorious week staying in Alken Cabin, so well placed for exploring the beautiful Causeway Coast of Co Antrim."

    The Cabin is very comfortable with excellent WiFi and cosy beds, and a lovely patio out the front where you can eat, relax and enjoy the sunsets. The kitchen facilities were adequate, although be aware there is no microwave or washing machine. Bushmills is less than a ten-minute drive away and has several 7/11 style shops where you can buy anything you’d need for catering.

    Liked the way the heating worked with a choice of 3 boosts for half an hour, an hour or 2 hours. Perfect for when we got in after a day of walking in the rain

  • "A superb holiday location."

    Excellent, clean accommodation with lovely outside space. Well equipped with everything we needed. The only slight issues were that it was a bit cold on the first night and there were no additional blankets and the top bunk mattress wasn't very comfortable. However we had a superb time and will be recommending Alken Cabin to friends.

    8 mins from Bushmills and about 24mins from Coleraine. Peaceful and quiet and very clean. Myself and 2 children enjoyed our weeks stay. If I had to be picky I would've liked a washing machine but I still give the cabin 10/10 and I'd stay again

The property

Tucked away within the majestic setting of County Antrim, is this detached lodge, Alken Cabin.

Ideally positioned, this delightful base comes within striking distance of the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, sandy beaches and endearing waterfalls, perfect for an adventurous family holiday.

It comes with two wonderfully presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a triple bunk bedroom, each offering a tranquil spot to wake up to each morning.

Look forward to spending sociable evenings within the open-plan living room where you will be delighted by the necessities that await your arrival.

In here, you will be able to prepare a home-cooked meal within the kitchen area before the family settle down within the dining area to tuck into a delicious meal.

Curl up with your loved ones on the plush L-shaped sofa, where you can catch up on your favourite TV shows or host a competitive games night before retiring of an evening.

Spend a moment or two in the garden area, where you can enjoy the superb views whilst you enjoy your morning coffee, or rustle up some summer treats on the BBQ during the warmer evenings.

If you can tear yourself away from this superb dwelling, venture to the village of Bushmills and enjoy an afternoon at the Old Bushmills Distillery, where you can sample a fine selection of whiskeys.

Alternatively, explore its wealth of amenities including quaint coffee shops and independent gift shops.

Within a short drive you will find one of the most recognisable World Heritage Sites, The Giant’s Causeway, which was made by millions of years of volcanic and geologic activity.

Also nearby is the National-Trust-owned Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, where you will be in awe with the spectacular views that await you as you cross.

Alken Cabin is a wonderful base for exploring Northern Ireland further.
