Portballintrae cottage description

Explore by day, relax by night! With easy access to 20 miles of scenic coastline, you can explore the stunning North Antrim coast, and come home to a luxury cottage perfect for two. Enjoy a comfortable seat by the fire, and in the morning, rise whenever you like. Visit the Giants Causeway World Heritage Site, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle, the Old Bushmills Distillery. Or pack a picnic lunch and roam the sand hills overlooking the sea. In summer, ride the historic tram into Bushmills.

Enjoy freeview TV, pop a DVD or CD into the Blue Ray player, and fix your favorite snack. Bring your laptop along so you can check your email and update your Facebook with pictures from your day using the wireless broadband.

This 150-plus year-old stone cottage was my grandfather's home. It has been fully renovated, and the original 2 large rooms now form living room, a bedroom, and study. This 5 star, one-bedroom cottage is suitable for honeymoons, romantic getaways, or a personal retreat.
