"Beautiful house in a convenient location"
A group of us spent a very enjoyable weekend here recently. We were four couples and the four large double rooms upstairs were ideal for our group size. However, the house could comfortably hold more than eight, having two comfortable sitting rooms and huge kitchen. There is no shortage of sightseeing in the area with Ballycastle and the North Antrim coastline about a fifteen minute drive away. Armoy village is a mile away and has a small supermarket for emergency supplies. I would recommend doing a proper shop in one of the larger towns before arriving, however, particularly if you plan on preparing most of your own meals like we did. Highly recommended.
Thank you Gerard for taking time to review our property. Really appreciate the feedback. Helen
