We found the house and grounds exceeded our expectations and we would go again. Wifi would have been really useful to plan our days as we had no reception and all the visitor info is provided with links to websites. For any parents of young children I recommend the playground at Derrymore House which has a coffee van.
A wonderful experience staying at the lighthouse. Great communication from Suzan. Extremely clean and comfortable. A few days away from technology and closer to nature. A great beach only a 5 min drive away. Once in a lifetime holiday.....
We had the most wonderful stay in this unique holiday property. The excitement driving to it when it was in sight was a joy for our boys. The caretaker on site could not have been more helpful and the cottage is beautifully styled.
Loved this place. Felt like a hidden gem... please keep it that way. Weather was great so we sat outside both days/evenings. Great Coastal walks directly from house. Great for touring Antrim coast and visiting the amazing gobbins nearby. We loved it and hope to get back in the future.
A beautiful location, very nice house. Comfy beds, nice lounge. Easy parking. Felt secluded and safe. Housekeeper was lovely! It's special to beside a working lighthouse. The Blackhead path is easily accessible, though challenging if you have small children.
This property is very central for all coastal areas of interest. It was clean and tidy. I was quite concerned about the number of cctv 360 cameras around the building, that was a little intimidating.
A perfect property for two with space to relax and chill. We had a comfortable stay wirh the bonus of the location. Follow the railway path for a 2 mile walk to the Giant's Causeway with the option of a little detour down to the beach. The property is in the village so park up ( the entrance is on z busy corner ) and walk to shops, cafes and restaurants right on your doorstep.
I had a four night stay at Helens tower, I have stayed before but this time I stayed in the summer months when there was more daylight, I found this gave me more time to explore and get out and about for a few walks The tower itself was very clean, tidy and comfortable and had all I needed for my stay. The weather was reasonable and I had some good views from the top of the tower, I found my stay very relaxing and I probably will come back to the tower again at some point. I was made very welcome by Walter the caretaker on arrival and found him very helpful.
We stayed at Blackhead Lighthouse for three nights in July 2021, it is the most picturesque setting you can imagine . We were very lucky to have been there in a heatwave and this added to our enjoyment of the sea views and local walks . Full marks to Irish Landmark Trust who have very faithfully restored the keepers houses . All over the property are reminders of times past . The views from almost every room are spectacular, we will definitely be revisiting Blackhead .
We both loved our stay at The Barbican. The property is full of character and well equipped and the views from the roof are amazing. Although we couldn't meet her, Alison, the property manager was always on hand at the end of the phone for any help. We would love to return one day.
We enjoyed our stay very much and have booked another trip for the autumn. The lodge was very well presented: comfortable beds with fresh white linens; well equipped kitchen; and nice garden area and surroundings. It was great to not have a television and WiFi for our stay. The walks in the estate were outstanding with lots of forest adventures for our daughter and dog. The lodge was ideally located to explore the surrounding area, including two National Trust properties. The house manager was very helpful in advance and during our trip.
Our second stay in a Landmark Trust property and looking forward to many more. Excellent location, spacious and very clean comfortable bedding. Attentive, friendly house manager. The house is old and in the country side however its interior needs to be freshened up. There was a lot of damp patches on walls, and surfaces that need to be touched up with paint. There was dust and old cobwebs on curtains, lampshades and surfaces. Perhaps a little more shabby than sheek and not in keeping with our previous experience of a Landmark Trust property.
Beautiful house in a lovely location. Really enjoyable and relaxing stay. Was aware of the bats and also the smell so this was not a problem. We slept downstairs very comfortably. There was no garden furniture apart from a metal bench. It would be lovely to be able to eat outdoors a picnic bench or table and chairs would be nice to make full use of the natural surroundings. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
