Is Summer here yet? Never mind theres loads to do round here!

Nearly there!
Will summer ever arrive here on the North Coast? We really do hope so or was that it two weeks ago when it was sunny every day for a week – very unusual in this part of the world! No let’s be really optimistic and trust that July and August will give us a period of warm dry weather. When the weather is fine Antrim’s North Coast is certainly a beautiful place to visit. I have just been away in the Channel Islands working and am hoping to import some of that much warmer weather up to this area.
For those not familiar with the Causeway Coast there is so much to do over the summer period for all the family. Wonderful sandy beaches (some of which you can drive your car onto) from Benone in the west to Portstewart Strand and White Bark Bay further east. For those looking for a more leisurely holiday Portstewart, Portrush and Bushmills have a fine selection of Coffee Shops and good eating establishments. You’re not short of good and exciting places to visit either with the Giant’s Causeway within sight of Meadow Cottage, the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge nearby as well as several great golf courses. How about a round on the Royal Portrush course home of last years Irish Open?
Many of our guests seem to like to visit the Bushmills Distillery. We have never been there but are reminded of the old Kitty Wells country song:
‘Why the misery of death in sin
When Jesus is pleading your soul to win
If down the whiskey road you have travelled too far
Friend you might meet death at the bar’
Coleraine is a great shopping centre with all the shops you will need plus more including some good privately owned businesses that make a refreshing change to the normal high street offerings. Our own recommendations are ‘S&T Moore’ (Gents Outfitters) for a fantastic range of mens clothing and children’s school accessories all reasonably priced. For the lady’s how about ‘Dixons’ a great if somewhat more upper-class woman’s fashion shop or ‘Moores’ department store that just about has it all! We think you will find something in Coleraine to interest most visitors on those very occasional wet days we have here on the north coast!
Sadly our family of Pheasants seem to have flow leaving just the two parent birds as regular visitors to us. Two weeks ago we picked up a dead badger on the side of the Ballybogey Road and buried it in our garden. It was so sad as it was a beauty and two days before I had anchored on hard in the car along our own road to avoid one. So when you do visit be aware that these beautiful creatures are about and that they have little if any road sense. So please take it easy driving as you may do as much damage to your car as you do to the poor badger!
Take care and we hope to see you soon.
Robert & Karen.
