Charlies Self Catering, Armoy, Ballymoney, County Antrim
Charlie's is a farm cottage near the Dark Hedges and the Causeway Coastal Route. The self catering cottage holds a three star NITB rating and was primarily one of the old school houses in the area and later lived in by Charlie McCooke who was one of the McCooke's from this area noted for athletics, hence the name Charlie's.
The self catering cottage was restored by the Morrison family who have farmed the surrounding land since the 1950's, although the cottage is set on its own next to our small camping and caravanning club affiliated 5 van site. The cottage is a well equipped dwelling offering up-market, peaceful self catering accommodation, set in spacious mature gardens surrounded by open countryside.
The property is fully equipped for self catering comprising a kitchen/lounge plus two spacious well appointed bedrooms (double and twin) with bathroom including a bath and electric shower - Charlie's easily sleeps four adults and one child.
There are the usual 'creature' comforts of a television, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, dish washer and free WiFi.
Bed linen and towels are provided and if required a cot for young children can be made available. There is an open peat fire with both electricity and central heating included. Off road parking is available for two cars on the drive alongside the house.
For those wishing to simply relax Charlie\'s offers the ideal tranquil setting in a quiet farming area with panoramic views of North Antrim.
Over the years Charlie\'s, situated one mile from the historic village of Armoy, has proven to be an ideal centre to explore some of Nortern Ireland\'s major attractions including the Causeway Coastal Route, the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland of the Giants Causeway, Carrik-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Bushmills, the Glens of Antrim, the famous Dark Hedges row of intertwined trees plus it is adjacent to the Gracehill Golf Club, offering an 18 hole parkland course, and the newly opened Hedges Licensed restaurant, within walking distance.
The Giants Causeway, renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt, resulted from a volcanic eruption some 60 million years ago. The formation of the Giants Causeway was due to intense volcanic activity. Lava welling up through fissures in the chalk bed formed a "lava plateau". Three periods of volcanic activity gave rise to the Lower, Middle and Upper Basalts, and it\'s the Middle Basalt rock which forms the famous amphitheatres of hexagonal columns in the Causeway.
The Hedges Restaurant on the Ballinlea Road, in Stranocum, offers a new and original dining experience. A business in its infancy, a young and dynamic team is responsible for creating a dining experience to remember. Using a great deal of locally sourced produce they are dedicated to offering the style and quality of food that people now demand. A comprehensive selection of wines and beverages compliment the menu and offering a new and positive dining experience.
