Stonechat and Cuckoo's Nest are two self-catering cottages set in almost 60-acres of unspoilt Irish countryside. Situated on the main Causeway Coastal Route just outside Ballycastle on the road to Ballintoy, offering an idyllic base for those wishing to explore the North Antrim Coast. The Giant’s Causeway is just 10 minutes away by car, while the exhilarating Carrick-a-Rede Ropebridge is only 5 minutes.

Beyond the town of Ballycastle lie the beautiful Nine Glens of Antrim. A particular favourite of the owners is Glenariffe, the ‘Princess’ Glen, which has numerous forest walks a waterfalls. The cottages are also within walking distance of Kinbane, a 16th-century castle, which remains one of the North Coast's hidden gems.

Crockatinney estate comprises Crockatinney Cottages, Crockatinney Guest House and Crockatinney Stables. The stables are a 30-second walk down the lane from the cottages and are home to three native breed horses – an Irish Draught and two gypsy cobs. A herd of donkeys and several ponies also call Crockatinney 'home'. There is a fishing lake on the land, stocked with rainbow and brown trout. Fishing is permitted so long as they are released after capture.

Within the grounds of Crockatinney, there is a 19th Century Famine Graveyard, which is untouched as a mark of respect to those buried there. The original stone walls and gate remain to this day.

The large area of surrounding natural terrain is full of wildlife - if visitors are very lucky, they may even hear the elusive cuckoo!
