Meet Your Hosts

David Craig

Lovely to meet you!

My husband David and I host The Pink Cottage and love sharing our peaceful little part of the world with guests for a perfect weekend away, or perhaps a week! We have amazing sea views and a there's even a little south facing Secret Garden where the only sounds are birds.

I am an interior designer and renovated my little pink cottage during the 2021 lockdown. I designed the entire space, picked a calming colour scheme and chose an interior style in keeping and to compliment the fabric of the very old stone building.

I also wanted to make sure it offered guests a very high level of comfort too, so I was especially particular when working on the bedroom and the bathroom design, and everything in-between.

In any bedroom, the bed is always something I'm a little fussy about, so I made sure to choose a king bed and a super sumptuous memory mattress. Another very important must-have of mine is a blackout blind on the window to avoid premature early morning awakenings!

The bathroom was totally refurbished to feature a beautiful roll-top bath and underfloor heating to keep your toes toasty. And I just couldn't resist painting the bath pink!

To be kind to the planet all of the furniture was bought from vintage shops or individuals selling antique items. I painted one or two pieces as I love a bit up up-cycling! Even the garden furniture came from my own home after I re-designed our living room. The two chairs are the comfiest outdoor chairs you'll ever sit in - a living room experience outside!

We usually work from home using the two downstairs rooms as our separate home offices, the green doors marked 'private'.

Your accommodation is the entire upstairs suite, which is totally private and separate with your own secure lockable entrance door within the cottage hallway.

We look forward to welcoming you for that perfect weekend away, or longer, to our boutique Pink Cottage.

Four Star Tourist Award


Whitehead holiday cottage awarded four-star grading by Tourism NI

A cosy holiday cottage in County Antrim is celebrating after being awarded a four-star accommodation grading by Tourism Northern Ireland.

Situated on a rural headland walk at McCraes Brae, The Pink Cottage’s vibrant façade and luxurious accommodation were found by the tourism body to “ooze charm and character”.
Guests can also enjoy the tranquillity of the boutique property’s secret garden, where high hedges provide a secluded and sheltered spot to relax.

The holiday let is just five minutes from the spectacular Gobbins Cliff Path, while a short drive will take visitors along the Causeway Coastal Route and its tourist gems such as the Giant’s Causeway, Game of Thrones filming locations, and the famous Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge.
