“Beautiful roomy cottage”

Firstly thank you for letting us stay in Tara cottage!

Tara cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay.... 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large kitchen/diner and a large living room. The garden is a good size which my young son enjoyed except for losing his football over the FENCE!
We arrived without a car and it's a 10 minute walk to Tesco and the bus stop that goes to Colraine,Portstewart and portrush is right outside it.
If you want you can walk to Portstewart promanade is 20 minutes which is a nice stroll, once there we had Sunday dinner in Shenanigans bar which was delicious.

Also have to add that the cottage was very clean with comfortable beds and the big sofas which recline were great in the evening.

The wifi was great which is essential nowadays. We will be back!

“Relaxing sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of London.”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My family having been renting and enjoying Tara Cottage, periodically, since 2009. Every stay has had a highlight, including celebrating mum's 80th birthday in 2014 . We love it there, The beautiful, quiet location but with easy acces to the main street and of course the surrounding attractions. The property is so well maintained, warm and cosy in winter, cool and breezy in the summer - with a garden to die for: Seclusion and beautiful countryside backing right up to the garden fence. Ample space in all the living areas, but we really do love the kitchen, evey appliance to make the cottage feel like a home from home, this is very important to us as my mum grew up in Portstewart and she loves to feel that she is back home! The cottage is always spotlessly clean on arrival and the booking procees is both easy and quick, Trevor and Rosemary really couldn't be any more flexible - something you do not always find with other owners. We look forward to many more stays at Tara!
