    If you are looking for a home away from home then book here! What a serene location and the perfect spot to recharge. A fantastic view of Slemish Mountain and if you are up for it, then a hike too! We went into the lovely town of Broughshane and enjoyed a good Irish meal and a pint at the The Thatch Inn. Michael and Maehb are wonderful hosts and their little dog Foxy is a special treat. Everything you need! A great spot between Belfast and on route to Giants Causeway and Bushmills!

    It's a bit inland from the coastline, but otherwise it's an amazing place. I really liked the homely feeling in this place - they have a cottage-sized living area, with board games, books, Legos and television. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were comfortable, and security was fine too. Clean bathrooms. Ample parking available.

    Staff was amazing. Super nice, nothing bad to say about them. The beds had no top sheet and I highly doubt they wash the comforters everytime, also shower did not drain when I was in it so couldn’t stay in shower very long.
