Breen Cottage stands in the midst of beautiful countryside in Glenshesk, one of the nine Glens of Antrim. With no close neighbours - unless you count the sheep in neighbouring fields! - it is a truly tranquil and private retreat and yet just six miles from the pretty, bustling seaside town of Ballycastle with its excellent sandy beach, marina, golfing, fishing, excellent restaurants and lively pubs.
The cottage benefits from private off road parking and a west facing patio equipped with table and chairs and a barbecue.
Inside there are open fires and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Downstairs there is a living room with large open fire, further sitting room with TV and open fire, a modern fitted kitchen and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one double bedroom and one adult single,both with antique iron/brass beds and original cast iron fireplaces.
This cosy cottage is ideal for couples, young families and singles.
The cottage is close to excellent walking and is also an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful North Antrim coast and the Glens of Antrim.
Horse riding is available at Sheans Horse Farm, a riding school and trekking centre on a 400 acre family farm just about five miles from the cottage.
Spend a day walking the Moyle Way, exploring ancient Breen Oak woods just half a mile away or touring the stunning North Antrim coast - then return home and relax in front of a crackling log fire or watch the sun set on the west facing patio.
