TreesTraditional stone built restored cottage close to Dunadry, surrounded by a small private garden, farmland and orchard, is ideal for a relaxing, comfortable stay. It is the perfect base to explore the Antrim coastline and glens yet not far to the attractions of Belfast and on into Co. Down.

The recently renovated cottage with stable door, deep window sills and high ceiling insulated corrugated roof combines successfully to provide a spacious, restful, living area with wood burning stove and a fully equipped kitchen.

The cottage offers 2 bedrooms sleeping 3, with 1 double and 1 single room sharing a ‘wet room’ shower/wc with level access. There is travel cot on hand and a double sofa bed in the living area. Bed linen and towels are supplied for all. The kitchen/dining area has a farmhouse table with seating for eight.

The adjoining Apple Barn may be available for extra accommodation if required.

The garden area is enclosed at front of house and rear, suited to families with young children. (Garden furniture and BBQ supplied). Woodland (recently planted) walks are possible from the cottage door. The Cooke family, along with their domestic pets, live nearby and ready to help when needed.

Prices are inclusive of oil central heating, electricity, fuel supplied for the wood burning stove. A welcome pack can be provided at cost. Seasonal vegetables may be available on request.

A convenient base to explore Ulster and beyond or just relax. Close to both Belfast airports and Larne or Belfast ferry ports, it is the perfect base to explore the Antrim coastline and glens yet not far to the attractions of Belfast and on into Co. Down. We are only 20 minutes by car to the Titanic Quarter.

Green TourismWe are pleased to have been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) Silver certificate as a means of improving our environmental performance. We have attended training seminars provided by GTBS and Antrim Council. The GTBS provide support and technical advice and through them we hope to minimise our impact and provide a sustainable quality service for our visitors.

We are sensitive to protecting our countryside. You are welcome to walk through our native tree plantation and to sample some of our seasonal vegetable or fruit. A variety of herbs-thyme, parsley, rosemary, mint and sage – grow close to your Barn door. There are several Elder trees nearby, traditionally planted for its antiseptic qualities. Perhaps you can give your car a rest for the day and walk through the fields, avoiding ones with cattle.

We would like to share our hopes for the future of our farmland. We have reduced our use of chlorine based detergents and we provide phosphate-free washing products in the kitchen and bathroom. The wood for our stove is well seasoned – reducing smoke and tar deposits, but it does require understanding of the principles to burn properly.

Most of the lighting is low energy and the rest will become so in time. We offer a change of linen once a week, though this can be increased for your own comfort. Bed linen is dried outdoors when possible, or spread out indoors. We aim to manage our business by keeping our waste to a minimum. Rubbish waste disposal, we aim to reduce landfill and recycle as far as possible within the local Antrim Borough council’s facilitites. We have our own compost and there is a compost caddy for vegetable scraps.

The Cottage and Barn have been fully insulated to current building regulations and have also been air tested for ventilation losses. The heating is fully controllable and we ask you not to turn up thermostats without good reason. Turn them down again as soon as you can or if you are going out.

The wood stoves give off good heat and the wood comes from our own wind fall trees which we are replacing at a faster rate. If you have the wood stoves burning, you will find the central heating will reduce the oil consumption. Cherrybrook has a 20kw wind turbine which offsets much of our electricity over the year. However the wind is not blowing all of the time and we ask you to be as vigilant as usual with electrical appliances.
