Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Charlie's is a three star farm cottage situated near the village of Armoy, Co.Antrim. We are a suitable venue for families and their pets, also walkers, cyclists, anglers and golfers. We are within walking distance of the Gracehill Golf Club and the newly opened Hedges Restaurant. The Dark Hedges where Game of Thrones was filmed is also within easy reach.
Central to the Northern Coastal Route we are barely six miles from the historic seaside town of Ballycastle. You may also plan a visit to nearby Ballintoy, have a coffee down at the Harbour and then go on to the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. Walking on the beach at Whitepark Bay is also very popular. Soon you will be at the Giant's Causeway where the new Visitors' centre is in now open.
Not forgetting the old town of Bushmills with it's many coffee shops and of course The Old Bushmills Distillery.
Onwards is the village of Portballintrae with a lovely little beach and so the coastal Route goes on...
To the North East of Ballycastle are the famous nine Glens of Antrim - another outstanding area of natural beauty. Take the coast road to Cushendun and Cushendall and on to Waterfoot and the Queen of the Glens - Glenarrif - you will not be disappointed.
You can do all the usual things while on holiday here but if you are interested in history or horses, you can go trekking at Sheans Horse Farm which is closeby. Here you may trek or ride as you please and learn some of the local history - all about the legendary Sorley Boy
and the battles which took place.

The County Antrim region
This region is coastal but also has a farming hinterland. Farming is the main enterprise in most of Co.Antrim. In Summertime you will see many animals in the fields, cow and calves, dairy cows in large herds and of course an abundance of sheep. Agriculture has kept the countryside looking good as fences and stone walls have to be maintained. You will also notice a few horses and ponies and even a few donkeys as Ireland is famous for all things equine. farms are almost all privately owned and passed down from generation to generation.
The area is Scots Irish - the land of the Hamely Tongue. It is not a sectarian thing as the accent is common to all! It comes from the narrow bit of sea between Northern Ireland and Scotland, also the Plantation of Ulster. Hopefully you will not need an interpreter as most natives are bilingual!
The traditional music is also a mixture of Irish and Scottish and may be heard in most bars and hotels during the Summer months. Not to be missed!
