Description

Swallow Cottage is a cosy, charming self-catering cottage set in quiet rural surroundings of North Antrim farmland, just 1 mile from the conservation village of Bushmills, home to the world's oldest licensed distillery, and 3 miles from the famous Giant's Causeway, one of the natural "Wonders of the World".

The cottage is an approved Northern Ireland Tourist Board (Tourism NorthernIreland) accommodation, licence no. #102643

The cottage consists of two bedrooms, one double (walkthrough) bedroom leading into a twin bedroom; a living room with dining area; kitchen and shower room with toilet. The property is centrally heated throughout and for those cold winter evenings there is a wood burning stove. In the living room there is a TV with DVD player and Free View satellite channels, also a small selection of DVDs, books and board games. All linen and towels are provided.

NB. There is a small step up from double bedroom into the twin room and a small step down from the kitchen to the sitting room so may not be suitable for people with limited mobility. The area around the property has ample parking for up to two guest cars.

The kitchen is well equipped for with electric cooker with oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, clothes hanger, toaster, electric kettle, utensils, cutlery et al. There is a safety box for guests valuables.

For the use of guests there is shared garden (ideal for children) with a private patio and BBQ.

Swallow cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind, as well as explore the many places of interest along the north coast of Antrim, right on your doorstep. The local village of Bushmills offers many facilities, including four small supermarkets, several pubs, restaurants, cafes, fish & chip shops, chinese takeaway, chemist, several churches, post office with money changer and ATM. There is also a small Medical Clinic with doctors available.

Three minutes drive from Swallow Cottage there is a petrol station with Circle K mini-mart, as well as car servicing and car wash. A few minutes walk away is a popular garden centre with an award-winning cafe serving an excellent hot meals just 2 mins drive away.

For more comprehensive facilities the town of Coleraine, 8 miles away, has several banks with ATM's, mobile shops, a cinema, entertainment complex and major high street outlets and supermarket chains.

The Coleraine Hospital, 20 mins away, has 24 hour Accident & Emergency facilities.

Also, nearby is the seaside resort of Portrush (20 mins) with shops, with amusements arcade and many entertainment facilities. Portrush is hosting the British Golf Open this year.

Surfing equipment hire and facilities are available. The small coastal village of Portballintrae, where you will find the closest beaches, is just 10 mins away.

Northern Ireland is now well known for its "Game of Throne" film locations. On the north coast, we are lucky enough to have two of these locations close to Swallow Cottage at Ballintoy (7.5 miles) and the Dark Hedges (10 miles).

“Just perfect!”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2018

Swallow cottage is the perfect cozy little place to get away from your normal busy life and unwind. It is about a mile and a half away from the village. A do-able walk but only a couple of mins in the car. The cottage was perfectly clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed. The pictures on the site are an accurate representation of what you will arrive to. Sally was very helpful, not that we needed anything extra. She even had milk in the fridge for us arriving. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to everyone. We are planning to book again as soon as life allows.

Owner's reply: Thankyou for taking the time to give us a nice review. So glad you enjoyed your time at Swallow Cottage and we would love to welcome you back again.
