The County Antrim region
Here's a list of the big attractions in our area, plus some local secrets we'd like to share with you.
1.Giant's Causeway: Legend has it that the giant, Finn McCool, created this geological marvel. It is a World Heritage Site and now has an impressive visitors centre to match. Tip: car parking charges might take your breath away, so park across the road at the Heritage Railway (also worth a ride).
2.Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge: Spanning a chasm eighty feet deep, it is an exhilarating experience peering down through the wooden slats into the clear waters below. The coastal path offers stunning views of Rathlin and the Scottish Isles, as well as a noisy seabird colony.
3.Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery: Join a tour of the distillery to observe the craft of traditional Irish whiskey making and sample the goods too.
4.Ballintoy Harbour: A picture-postcard pretty harbour with a pocket-sized tea room and magical views. Much-loved by walkers, this is the most celebrated part of the Causeway Coast.
5.Whitepark Bay Beach: The spectacular sandy beach forms a white arc between two headlands including the tiny salmon-fishing village of Portbraddan. The beach is backed by ancient dunes rich in bird and animal life. Enjoy lazy summer days, picnics, making sandcastles and long walks along this truly beautiful beach.
Some of our favourite things to do...
•Exploring the rockpools at Murlough Bay. It is exceptionally beautiful and remote.
•Eating fish and chips from Morton's, Ballycastle. Grab a bench and watch the sun set over Ballycastle Harbour as you tuck into the best battered cod for miles.
•Watching the seals on the beach at Rathlin Island. Hop on the ferry and take a picnic lunch.
•Ambling through the conservation village of Cushendun. It's a great place to stop for coffee as you drive the coastal route. Don't forget to say hello to the resident Billy Goat Gruff.
•Deep sea fishing for cod, mackerel and anything that bites with Captain Chris on his fully equipped boat “The Lord Moyle” sailing out of Ballycastle Marina.
The Royal Portrush Golf Course is less than a mile from the cottage and is rated amongst the top 15 courses in the world. It's a natural seaside links with deep bunkers and expansive roughs, overlooked by the 13th century Dunluce Castle.
Just up the lane from our cottage is Maddybenny riding school, welcoming riders of all abilities from 5 years old.
Anglers will talk up a tall tale after fishing for salmon on the River Bush, just 7 miles east of Copperpot Cottage in sight of the famous Old Bushmills Whisky Distillery.
Portrush itself offers an eclectic mix of shops, restuarants, cafes and seaside amusements for the family. And everywhere has a stunning sea view. The beach offers bucket and spade fun as well as great surf breaks. Several suf schools offer lessons for all the family.
From personal experience, the bustling Ramore Wine Bar offers a broad, well-priced menu (children welcome) and 55 Degrees North is a good option for afternoon tea with great views (children welcome). Further afield, Tartine in Bushmills offers delicious food and an interesting wine list.

"Stylish, comfortable, great location"
We spent a week at Copperpot Cottage in July 2015 with our 3 kids, ages 4,3 and 10 months. The cottage was perfect for us, really comfortable and cosy and very well equipped, everything was there that we needed; stair gates, high chairs, travel cot, excellent cooking facilities, toys and games. The kids loved it and settled in really quickly. The location is great being just on the outskirts of Portrush in a lovely quiet rural spot but with a great supermarket less than 5 mins drive away. Perfect for exploring the beautiful scenery of the North Coast. It's also really pretty outside as well as in, with roses around the door. Last but not least I must mention the warm welcome by Nicci, from our first email contact she was delightful and we really appreciated the kind provisions left for us. We really look forward to returning.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. Travelling with a young family can be challenging so it is fantastic to hear the cottage had everything your little ones needed to settle in so that you got to relax and enjoy yourselves too. We really hope to welcome you back to Copperpot Cottage soon.

A roaring fire welcomed us on arrival, the perfect greeting for a crisp November day. The cottage was perfect in every way and the attention to detail was second to none. I would highly recommend staying here.

A very warm welcome from the hosts. Fresh bread, fresh milk, wine & flowers were waiting for us on arrival. Very spacious cottage. Massive kitchen with plenty of seating. Great sized bedrooms. Everything you need on a self catering holiday was provided here. Back yard is a sun trap with a picnic table. Ideal for dining alfresco. Beds very comfortable and warm. This cottage is amazing with plenty to do & see. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will defo be back :-)
We're delighted you had such a great stay on the North Coast. Thanks for taking the time to review us. The cottage looks quaint from the outside, has lots of space inside, but still manages to feel cosy - it is a tardis cottage!

"Wonderful place to stay"
YOu cannot go wrong booking this beautifully equipped cottage. Although not quite within walking distance of Portrush, it is only a 5 minute drive away and there was plenty of parking. THe cottage is definitely 5 * and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. THere is even a lidl just down the road! The outside area was wonderful to relax in listening to the farm sounds in the distance and the fact that there is parking for 2 cars was a godsend. The cottage is advertised as sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms but to be honest we "lived" in the kitchen /diner area and didn't use the very large lounge hardly at all so if a sofa bed was there could sleep 8. I can thoroughly recommend this place
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Copperpot Cottage. The open plan kitchen and Snug area is fantastic for cooking, relaxing and chatting together as a family isn't it. It is great to hear you enjoyed your stay and found everything you needed at the cottage. Come back soon!

"Much more than a cottage!"
We arrived to be greeted by Nicci who showed us around what is a very roomy cottage, comfortably furnished, lovely and warm. The large kitchen/TV area forms the focus of the cottage with a separate lounge with wood-burning stove (although we never did manage to get the logs to light!). Upstairs are three large bedrooms, bathroom and ensuite to one bedroom. All was in very good order and clean. There is plenty of room for 6 people upstairs and down. The cottage is situated about 2 miles from Portrush harbour and walkable if you are fit - there's a bit of a hill on the return journey. A brand new Lidl is just 5 minutes away. This was our first visit to Northern Ireland and we wished we had visited sooner. The countryside is beautiful and the coastline breathtaking. We walked to Portstewart and caught the bus back and walked the East Strand to the hotel where we relaxed with a Guinness or two before returning. We spent a day in Belfast visiting the Titanic exhibition, and also in Londonderry where we walked the walls, and of course Giants Causeway which entailed a lot more walking. There was plenty to do as well as a comfortable cottage to return to and relax. A lovely week.
Your review gives good insight into features of the cottage as well as the locality and I'm sure it will be useful to other potential guests. Thank you. You saw so much of Northern Ireland during your stay - we're delighted you enjoyed the whole experience and had such good fun!

We had a fantastic weekend in this cottage. It has everything you need. It is spacious throughout and the large living room has a stove. The kitchen has everything you could possibly think off. It is private, it is a short distance to portrush town centre. Can't wait to stay in it again.
You have paid us the biggest compliment by coming back to Copperpot Cottage and staying again. We are delighted you had fun and hope you'll make us a regular haunt for weekend breaks or longer stays.
