At the front there is one parking space dedicated to the cottage, with some visitor spaces available on a 'first come first served' basis. The cottage is 1 of only 14 cottages with views over the fields, giving a feeling of being in the country. However the town of Bushmills with shops, bars/restaurants & the distillery is only 15 minutes walk. The sea front is 5 minutes walk giving access to the one of the beaches & the harbour. The Bayview Hotel is conveniently located here for food & drinks. Another 5 minutes walk around the shore brings you to the main beaches, very popular with families and surfers. There is also a small shop here. The 9 hole Bushfoot Golf Club is less than 10 minutes walk & is open to non members for both golf & the club house facilities. There are lovely walks from Portballintrae through sand dunes & along a path beside the steam train track up to the Giant's Causeway, about 2.5 miles away. Within a short driving distance is Whiterocks golden beach; also Portrush with shops, amusement arcades and swimming pool. The main market town, Coleraine, has good shops, supermarkets,a cinema, ten pin bowling & a leisure centre. Please be aware that in addition to the rental price, there is a further £40 fee for the laundry and cleaning after your stay, which is payable with your final balance.More
