The Pink Cottage
Meet Your Hosts
AWARD WINNING 4 STAR ACCOMMODATIONThe boutique upstairs suite of The Pink Cottage is tranquil and cosy with a traditional vintage interior style that's just intriguing.
It has breath-taking sea views and a private secluded and sheltered Secret Garden to unwind in!We aim to make each guest feel completely pampered.
The Pink Cottage (upstairs suite) is situated on a stunning rural headland walk that leads to Blackhead Lighthouse & a coastal path which meanders along to the Victorian town of Whitehead in Northern Ireland.
A few minutes walk along our lane is Whitehead Golf Club to play or eat in the restaurant.
Ideal location for guests who want to journey along the rugged Causeway Coast, with the spectacular Gobbins Cliff Path and its suspension bridges 5mins away.
Other treats on this magnificent coast worth exploring include the UNESCO world heritage site of the Giant’s Causeway, Game of Thrones film locations, Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, all on this coastal drive straight from our pink front door!
Or, if you simply want to relax, unwind and rejuvenate... its just perfect!
You also have private access to the Secret Garden which lies hidden at the bottom of the garden of our holiday cottage.It's sheltered and secluded with high hedges, looking over the sea...perfect to sit and read and listen to the birds. There's a chiminea for the cooler evenings and a bbq if the weather's good!

The large living area is where you can sit and relax and just gaze out the window at the sea view, or read a good book.
Or you can always catch up with your favourite Netflix series on the Smart TV.There's a comfy sofa with cosy throws to recline on while gazing or reading.
The little dining space is perfect if you just want to eat-in.There's a writing bureau, should you want to do some work, or send an old fashioned letter! Oh, if you do, you can post it in the red letterbox just outside, daily collections.
There are some board games like the old favourite Scrabble and a small, but growing collection of books.The original part of the cottage was built around 400 years ago, so we are told. It has lots of original charm, in particular the head height....some doorways are a little small, so mind your head!Wifi is also good.
The large living area with TV also incorporates a little dining area.
You'll find a fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle along with utensils and chopping board. Plates, bowls, glasses and wine and Prosecco glasses are supplied too.
All this is so you can easily prepare and heat food and dine-in, if you wish!*
If you love good coffee there's local ground coffee and a cafetiere.And for tea lovers there's a little selection, including loose leaf tea and an infuser teapot for the perfect brew! Use the fridge to chill beer, wine or Prosecco, so you can relax and enjoy a glass of something in the evening...maybe even in the Secret Garden, weather permitting!*Please note, there's no stove top cooker, just the microwave.
You'll find some lovely complimentary breakfast items waiting for you to enjoy. No need to remember to do a shop for basics before you get here!
