  • Oooooohh what a lovely place you have!! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! (WHY ARENT YOU LIVING HERE!?!). Even in rain and storm it is great to sit in front of the fire and relax, play games. Will be back. Andre, Tina, Krissi, Tobi, Germany, October 2014.

    Are there better places to stay in Northern Ireland? I doubt it. Will be recommending to friends and family and hope to return next summer. Unexpected bonus was spotting a shooting star. Absence of light pollution makes star gazing a must on a clear night. The girls loved the toys especially the ones in the shed, and the Welcome Pack is the best I’ve ever seen. Thanks for a great stay! Granny Rhona, son Warren, partner Frances and their daughters Sarah and Rachel from Bangor and Leeds. August 2014.

    We are still amazed by this lovely cottage and the fantastic setting. It is awesome to look out every window and be able to see the sea. We enjoyed our stay here so much, especially eating outside, playing games near the fireplace or drinking coffee while looking at the water. Thank you so much. Also for the welcome basket. PS we loved the decoration and style of this house! Going to copy that in Germany ;) Grandparents Lothar and Erika Letr with their grandchildren Lori and Larissa Scipel from Germany, August 2014

    Beautiful location, lovely cottage. Seems like this coast gets the best – we saw rain North and West of us! Saw hares in the garden, curlew, herons and wrens. Visited Castleward, kayaked and mountain-biked (Clearwater were very helpful). Swam in the bay, ate at the Portaferry Hotel and the Quays in Portavogie, visited Greyabbey and had coffee at Harrisons. Lovely walk down at Ballyquintin Point. Thanks for a great stay – you have made a lovely place here. The Shaw and Cameron Families (Stirling, Scotland and Enniskerry, County Wicklow). July 2014.

    The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and catered to our every need. We spent a lovely fun-filled week. We enjoyed exploring the rock-pools and eating outside in the beautiful gardens. The binoculars were an added bonus to spot the different wildlife at sea and in the surrounding fields. Marr Cottage is a little oasis. Bettie, Cheryl and Dawn, Belfast, July 2014.

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful place. We have had such a relaxing week. Great weather to complement the fab views, beaches on the doorstep, a great garden and toys for Jacob to run around and play with – and the sea from every window! We wish we could stay and will be back. Can’t imagine there could be anything better in Ireland. The Knox family, Cardiff, June 2014.

    What a wonderful place. We had such a relaxing few days here enjoying the magnificent setting, even if I wasn’t brave enough to venture into the sea! We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay. Tim, Claire and baby James, Belfast, September 2014.

    Thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. We had a fantastic, relaxing time away from our hectic lives. Lots of walks on the sea shore and fishing (but no fish!). looking forward to returning soon. Thanks again. The Maclennan family, Scotland, October 2014.
