“Why bother with a hotel”

We absolutely loved staying at the Coach House.

Everything that we could have needed was here, and the beds were to die for. The kitchen was fully equipped and the living and dining had room for all of us.

The stroll down to the beach via a private door was charming.

We will definitely be staying here again, and highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review on our beautiful Coach House. We were so pleased that you chose to stay here for the special occasion of your daughter's wedding and the photograph of her outside the house in her dress was beautiful. We are looking forward very much to welcoming you back again.

“A HIDDEN GEM !!!!!!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

If you’re looking for a change from the usual hotel stay, the coach house is perfect. It’s a hidden Gem.

Rosemary the owner is such a lovely lady and pulls out all the stops to make you feel welcome. Nothing seems to be to much trouble.

Access to the beach via a private gate, makes for a lovely morning walk.

The house its self is so comfortable and clean, especially the beds and pillows, one of our party wanted to take the bed home with her. It has everything you could possibly need for self catering accommodation.

Already planning our next vist.

From the moment of arrival we realised we had struck "GOLD" The property is wonderful and the Lemon Drizzle cake left for our arrival was a lovely touch.

The property is large and ideal for One large family or a small group. Its location is ideal for touring to Places on the North coast and Belfast City attractions are only 10 minutes away by car or Taxi. The private access down onto the Beach was also an added bonus and our dogs loved early morning paddles each day.

Local pubs and reastaurants are within walking distance and Carrickfergus is well worth a visit.

“Beautiful house, perfect location!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed in the owners adjacent property, 'The Coach House', with my husband, children, mother-in-law and friends.
The house was absolutely wonderful and spacious with ample parking, in a perfect location with easy access to the local area and motorways for trips further afield. It is located very close to Belfast Lough and with private access to the footpaths running alongside.
The house was beautifully presented with everything that required for our stay. The bedrooms are a true delight and the kitchen/diner extremely spacious and fully equipped (essential when travelling with children!).
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be recommending this properties to our friends and will be returning ourselves.
Car is essential if you want to make the most of your stay in NI.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review my property in such detail and for awarding it 5 Stars. You and your family were perfect visitors and if I was to give guests Star ratings you would certainly get 5 Stars for the excellent way you left the property on departure! Hope we shall see you and your family here again.
