Where to start with this amazing little cottage... We first booked to stay here 3 years ago. From the start clem and Jayne were fantastic and so helpful! We had been to ballintoy several times and had never seen the cottages tucked away. From the minute we arrived we knew we would be back again and again. The cottage has everything you need and more, it makes you realise you do not need all the clutter back home. Breakfast, lunch and bbq's in the garden (weather permitting) and cozy nights infront of the wood burning stove was just perfect. 10 minute walk down to the harbour and beach with the beautiful o'rourke's cafe and the red door at the end of the driveway, As well the the Fullerton arms in the village if you are away to escape cooking you are spoilt for choice. Our daughter enjoyed the body boards and fishing rods and we enjoyed the wine!!! Phone signal may be poor but I actually loved that and my phone stayed off the entire week! We slept better here than we do at home, long lazy days and nights or walks to watch the sunrise or sunset at the beach, it's just heaven.
We loved the northern star cottage and ballintoy harbour so much that we were the first people to get married on the little hidden beach at sandy port in August last year. If it wasn't for this little peace of heaven and having the time to stay here and find this beach we wouldn't have gotten our dream wedding!
Can't wait to August to spend our 1st anniversary in the northern star cottage xx
We stayed for three nights as a couple exploring the Causeway Coast and loved our time at this cottage. It is small, but was perfect for us and provided everything we needed. Information provided by the owners was comprehensive and the cottage was very easy to find. Spent our days out walking or exploring and our evenings cooking and relaxing either in the garden or in front of the log burner. Ballintoy Harbour is lovely and only a short walk away and the cottage is a great base for walking the Causeway Coast path - we did the section to Carrick-a-Rede (there and back) the first afternoon and then the longer walk to Giant's Causeway (with a bus back) the next day. On our way to the cottage we drove the Torr Head scenic road which is highly recommended. Such a beautiful part of the world. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
