A charming, cozy, traditional farmer’s cottage ideally located for exploring the Causeway Coast
A charming, cosy, traditional farmer’s cottage set in the quiet rural surroundings of North Antrim farmland. A wealth of oldie worldy furnishings including exposed beams, feature fireplace and woodburner. The cottage offers comfortable accommodation for families or friends wishing to explore the Causeway Coast.
First opened in March 2014 following an extensive renovation and conversion the Bothy recently featured in an article in 'Farm Week' which describes it as 'a cottage of unusual appeal …. Fabrics and wall colours of pale pastel greens, subtle, soft light shades which merge with the atmospheric dimensions of this incredible building, don't overpower the senses yet leave one with the comfortable feeling of being immersed in a homely cottage ….. Each room is a journey into the dream world of relaxed charm and restfulness.'
Dating from the 1700s the Bothy has been fully modernised whilst retaining all its original charm. The thick walls, modern insulation and central heating ensure that it is beautifully warm throughout the year whilst the fully equipped kitchen has an energy efficient oven/hob and appliances that are all A-rated or higher.
Accommodation is all on the ground floor. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with twin beds (or super king size). A bathroom with loo, bath and a sensational thermostatically controlled deluge shower. A living and dining room, a long hall and fitted kitchen with pleasing design, colour schemes and all facilities. Oil central heating with woodburner in lounge. Electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, WiFi, TV, DVD, radio/CD, iPod docking station, library of books, games & DVDs, cot & highchair, hairdryer, fresh flowers and welcome pack of locally produced bread, preserves, fresh eggs, milk and butter.
