Description from owner


Spacious comfortable self-catering accommodation, ideal for families, large groups etc.

Set in an idyllic location approximately 2.5 miles for the seaside town of Ballycastle and 10miles from the world famous Gaints Causeway, Forestsidehouse (and Cottage) offers the perfect base for exploring all of the attractions of the North Antrim and causeway coasts.Forestside House and Cottage have ample off-road parking, private gardens, play area for children, clean and comfortable accommodation. Nearby activities include: horse riding; golf; sailing; secluded forest walks and many more.

Forestside House and Cottage provides the perfect location for exploring Northern Ireland's many Game of Thrones filming sites.

Towels are provided for a small fee (guests are encouraged to bring their own);

Electricity and heating is metered at local rates and payable on check-out. This is so that we can keep our running costs low and lower the price per night - it would be unfair to charge inclusively for heating and electricity for those guests who make the most of the location and barely spend time in the house.

Pets are welcome at £10pn.

“Perfect big house for families or large group get togethers!”

Reviewed 14 May 2018

Amazing big property close to the town and 20 mins from beautiful Cushendun. The house fitted the 13 of us in with room to spare and we all felt safe and secure. One thing I would say is that we were shocked to have to pay for the oil/gas/electric separately. we thought it would be included as we paid 700 to stay for 2 nights but the cost was only £22.00 in the end so it wasn't too bad. We all just loved this house and cannot wait to visit again :)

“Suited our purpose”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2017

The house suited our purpose for the weekend. Claire was lovely on arrival and checkout. The house was cold when we arrived as it was empty all week however once we turned on the heat and lit the fire it was grand. It was kitted out with all the utensils we required. The heat/electric charge was less than £25 and we were in the house a lot. Our only gripe was that the oustide bins were full and over flowing (a bit unsightly) and the fire alarms were disconnected (an important one to fix we thought). We would book again!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Just a point to note on the fitted fire alarm, it was disabled due to a fault in the wiring but it was replaced by a stand alone fire alarm that was in the kitchen on top of the fridge and the fitted one upstairs worked as normal. Unfortunately our bins were not emptied due to previous guests having filled it with the wrong products for the particular bin. We have removed all items not suitable for particular bins and the bins were then lifted as normal. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards

“Great family weekend”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2012

Went to Ballycastle for a weekend with our large extended family (13 adults and 4 kids) and had a lovely time in Forest Side house. The house is very impressive and well finished, does have some scuffs and bruises but its to be expected. We loved the house and it was such a bonus for us all to stay under the one roof. The seven bedrooms were ideal for us and with three bathrooms the mornings wern't too bad :) It was noted on signs around the house that we wernt to use all 3 showers at once as the water pressure would be affected but again this is to be expected and simply meant there was a queue for the shower before going out. We were very pleased with the value of this rental house and as we brought all our own food and drink the weekend was a very cheap one - ideal for anyone not wanting to go very far and to save the pennies. We went to the Giants Causeway which was within a 20 minute drive (we were too busy appreciating the scenery to be rushing) and had a great day. Also nearby is the beach with playpark for kids. (Many other nearby ammenities we jsut couldnt fit them in). We also ate in the Central wine bar after many recommendations and had a lovely evening. We only really dealt with the ower via email then a phone call to leave keys after departure (and one towork out if the fridge was on or not) but we have no complaints he was very accomodating with our requests for a high chair, late check out and booking dates. We were also fully notified of the deposit payment and it was repaid promptly and in full. We would definately recommend this property for a visit to the north coast.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to post this review,i was pleased to here that you all enjoyed your stay at Forestside house and look forward to seeing all back again some time soon.Best wishes.Ian

I stayed here for a week for a family break. The house is gorgeous very spacious, a brilliant holiday home that catered for all our needs. The owner was pleasant and was only a phonecall away if we needed him. I would highly recommend staying here, lovely part of N.Ireland.
