Copperpot Cottage 2014 Winner Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence

What a super-cosy cottage! Beautifully presented and plenty of room for 6 people. A great location for exploring Northern Ireland. The owners were lovely to deal with and we shall hopefully return.

Ali Welson, 

Great location for our stay central to what we needed. Plenty of room for the kids, just like a home from home. Hope to be back next year.

clare mitchell, 

We absolutely loved our stay at Copperpot Cottage. On arrival it was exactly as it was on the website. Nicci and Jonny had thoughtfully provided the essentials as well as a welcome bottle of wine. Everything that could possibly be needed for a self-catering stay was provided and was of the highest quality. I would definitely love to stay here longer than a weekend to explore everything that this part of Northern Ireland has to offer. Full marks to Nicci and Jonny for a lovely weekend.

Marie Mills, 

We spent a lovely week at this cottage during February half-term. Ideal location for exploring the North coast. Accommodation was spacious, clean, well equipped, warm and quiet. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our children enjoyed having their own rooms and the Wifi!

Jennifer Mitchell, 

We hired the cottage for a work event - a series of meetings held with me over 3 days. Superb cottage, perfect for us to gather and feel at home yet get some work done. We're pretty local but this was a great place to get away from the office to. Thanks for everything!

Alastair Patton, 

What an absolutely wonderful stay we had, which was all too short! We were greeted warmly by Nicci and given a thorough show around the cottage, which is really well equipped and beautifully furnished. The bed was really comfortable and the shower good and hot - perfect contrast to the weather we experienced during our stay! Great central location, but on a quiet road, which we appreciated. We also liked the parking off street. This cottage is absolutely delightful, and if we are ever over this way again, we would certainly try to stay at Copperpot Cottage again. Thanks Nicci and Jonny -
Copperpot has been our most memorable stay during our trip to the UK this year!

Copperpot Cottage met our expectations and much more. It is beautifully presented with everything you could possible need for your stay be it for two nights or two weeks. The cottage is in an ideal situation for touring the Antrim coast and is only about an hour away from Belfast. It is also within easy reach of Portrush with its array of many diversified restaurants. The cottage is situated in an ideal quiet location with parking round the back. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

Pam Whitby,

William and Suzelle, 

Lovely cottage, nice comfortable, clean. Ample room. Easy drive to town and all the other sights on the Antrim coast.
Fresh flowers and bread was much appreciated. Thank you.

Banee Rock, 

We had a wonderful stay at the Copperpot Cottage, The cottage itself was very well equipped, very spacious, clean and comfortable. It felt like a home from home! The added personal touches really made this stay so enjoyable for us. We will definately be making a return visit and have already told all our family and friends how amazing it was!!!
Thank you!

Louise Collins, 

The cottage was even more lovey than we imagined it would be. Nicci was there to give us a warm welcome when we arrived and show us around the cottage, which was well equipped, cozy and a real home from home. A lovely touch was the milk, bread and bottle of wine that was left for us. The location was also fantastic for exploring the stunning coastline and attractions. We had an amazing weekend and will definitely be back :-)

Rhian & Andrew, 

We had a wonderful weekend break at Copperpot Cottage. A lovely house, so spacious and well set-up for guests. Nicci has thought of everything and it truly was a home from home! Hopefully we will return!

Dawn Beck, 

Nicci was so helpful in our trip planning phase (answering my numerous questions) and our welcome to the cottage was so friendly. The cottage was such a lovely place to unwind after a busy week of travel in the south of Ireland on a fast paced tour bus. With some guidance from our host we were able to streamline our sightseeing plans and eat at some wonderful restaurants! Everything was very clean, organized and well planned at the cottage. The location was great because we weren't right in a town or city but so close that it wasn't ever a problem to pop out for whatever else we needed (including a Starbucks 10 mins away in Coleraine!) Everything was within an easy driving distance, Belfast, Donegal, the Giant's Causeway. Portrush is such a pretty seaside town. It was nice to be in the country because it was quiet at night. The WiFi at the cottage was handy for keeping in touch with our kids back home and we really appreciated the laundry room and dishwasher! We are already talking about coming back with some family members in the future now that they've seen our pictures and heard our stories. We would highly recommend a stay at Copperpot Cottage if you're planning to visit Northern Ireland!

Rachel Brown, 

We had a wonderful stay at Copperpot Cottage. The cottage has everything you need and more for a great stay on the North Coast. Excellent location and a great base for exploring. We had a fabulous welcome, one of the best rental properties we have ever stayed in - we will definitely be back.

Alana Coyle, 

We loved our stay at Copperpot Cottage. It was a great base for our adventures around the north coast.
It was so well equipped, which was great as we have two young children. A lovely cosy cottage, that felt like a home away from home.

Leaun Carolan, 

What a gem! Copperpot cottage is just perfect! Lovely warm welcome and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Great location and beautiful cottage. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Nicci and Jonny.

Jenny booth , 

We had a really good feeling about Copperpot Cottage as the communication was first class from the start. On arrival we had a warm reassuring welcome from the owner and a healthy stock of larder supplies to get us started. The cottage was clean, warm and had everything we required to make a perfect weekend including games and jigsaws, we had a fantastic break in an outstanding property


Copperpot is the type of place you don't want to review to selfishly keep it a well kept secret. But it is so tasteful, homely and ideally located that it is difficult to resist that temptation. We have never stayed in a place that felt as much like a second home. Thank you to the owners for all the extra touches, from kids toys to milk and preping the fire.

Jason and Maryann, 

We stayed at Copperpot Cottage over Christmas and New Year. It was fabulous and the kids loved the place. The Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely touch. We will be back!

Michael Mulligan, 

We stayed at Copperpot cottage September 2014. What a beautiful cottage and beautiful part of the world. It was the perfect home from home, with everything we needed for our 1 year old. We'll be back for sure.

Helen harte, 

Our family stayed at this cottage for a week in July 2014. We could not have stayed in a better holiday home, it was close to everything we wanted to do , 10 minute walk to shops and close to beach, great for children and families for a great holiday on the Antrim coast, Nicci greeted us with a warm welcome with fresh baked bread and wine which was a nice touch. The only regret we had was not booking for another week, Thank you Nicci and jonny x

Lisa winters, 

What a lovely place to relax! We just spent a weekend with family in the very comfortable Copperpot Cottage. The house is beautifully decorated and in such a tranquil location. The condiments and welcome goodies are a very thoughtful and lovely touch. We were blessed with beautiful weather and got to fully enjoy the outside mini garden and barbecue after long coastal walks, dips in the sea and ice-cream on the beach. It's a perfect seaside getaway location and we cannot wait to return.

Emma Cunningham, 

We have just returned from having spent an amazing weekend at your cottage.You gave us such a special welcome and made us feel so at home.I feel it always those little extra touches that are so appreciated especially that bottle of red!We have told many of our friends about your beautiful cottage and how it is a luxurious base for the splendid North Coast.Many thanks again and hope to return next year.Louise Lynch

louise lynch, 

Just returned from a fabulous 3 night break at Copperpot Cottage. The Cottage was great, we stay in self catering accomodation all over the world several times each year, but this has to be one of the best equiped places we've stayed - cooking facilities, bedrooms, wifi etc. Location was perfect - lots of really pretty places to visit. Nicci was a great host, leaving the personal touches like fresh flowers and wine. We hope to return in the future. Thanks again.

Alison Robson, 

Had a lovely stay 7th - 10th March with family. Nicci was there when we arrived early and made us very welcome. The kitchen area was a great space and we all spent our daytime there together as we could cook,eat,watch TV and my granddaughter could play. We spent our evenings in front of the super log burner in the living room once my granddaughter had gone to bed and continued in our quest to see who could come up with 'best word of the holiday' when we played our usual game(s) of scrabble.
The location was great in terms of access to Portrush/Portstewart/Coleraine or just the local spar for anything we needed.
We would definitely love to stay again and I thoroughly recommend Copperpot Cottage to families or even couples as a lovely place to stay. Everything you need is there from tea bags to washing powder/fabric conditioner/cleaning materials.
As a family we regularly stay in properties throughout Ireland (several times a year) and I have to say that Copperpot Cottage provided more in terms of provisions than anywhere we have ever stayed before.
Thank you Nicci for the milk/juice/jam/butter/wine/flowers/bread etc(the list goes on).
We will be back!!!!

Doreen Savage, 

We stayed, 4 adults and 2 children, in this great cottage for a weekend in February. The cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. The owners were very welcoming and we would hope to stay again in the future.


Myself, husband, two young children (7 & 3), mum and dad have just returned from a very cosy three night stay over Christmas. The cottage is picture postcard, extremely cosy yet very spacious. We loved the large wood burning stove set in the grand brick inglenook. We lolled on the corner sofa beside the kitchen. We consumed a large Christmas dinner cooked to perfection on the lovely large range cooker. And Santa even found the cottage and delivered presents to two very excited children. Thank you for the lovely welcome Xmas card and wine! The perfect start to our yuletide getaway and a refreshing stylish change from old fashioned chintz.

Heidi McAlpin, 

A beautiful cottage with everything a family needs for a relaxing break! A real home-from-home & a lovely warm welcome from Nicci :) We look forward to staying here again!

Sarah-Jane & Strachan, 

We had a great time staying at Copperpot Cottage. It felt like moving from home to home. Children had wifi access to play with their gadgets whilst we had a lovely log burner to enjoy. Nicci made us feel very welcome. I would strongly recommend this cottage to other families.

Helen McClay, 

We have just returned from a week at Copperpot Cottage. The cottage was amazing we were sorry to leave and could have stayed forever. The cottage was perfectly located for our first family holiday. Nicci and Jonny made us feel very welcome with some very thoughtful personal touches for both us and our baby. I will definitely recommend Copperpot Cottage to my family and friends and we look forward to a return visit with our second baby in the future.

Diane and David Wilson, 

Had a lovely stay in Copperpot Cottage.
The cottage is surprisingly spacious but still very cosy. A real home from home and nothing was too much bother for Nicci.
I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone!


3 days was not long enough to appreciate both the delights of this beautiful cottage and the wealth of local activities and wonderful scenery. Our host Nicci could not have been more welcoming. She and Johnny have done a great job providing everything you could possibly wish for in a holiday cottage, loved the big open plan kitchen and sitting room, didn't get chance to light a fire in the lounge next door, perhaps next time. Great to have 2 separate living rooms though. Best place we've ever stayed in.

Theresa smissen, 

Stayed in the house with my family over the weekend of the airshow, had a good time, maybe not so much the airshow but the accommodation was superb, really well laid out and beautifully designed house, very homely and welcoming, kids and grandparents had a great time. Thanks


"Great place to stay loads of room with everything you need for a family holiday for us chillin with are 5 year old with 1 of the kids dvds at night on the big conner sofa had great fun after along day out and about hope to return at some point soon"

Colin foster, 

As a family of 6 space and comfort are a major factor and this cottage has them in abundance. We had a wonderful week in a fantastic area of Northern Ireland, with lots to do & see. Would highly recommend a stay in the beautiful Copperpot Cottage.

John Maitland, 

We stayed here with family for a week and I could have easily moved in. We had a toddler and there was toys, dvd's bowls plates etc all there. We asked for a travel cot and it was immaculate. The cottage is wonderful and has everything you could need. It's not right in the centre of port rush but 2 minutes in the car and my son loved listening to the cows on the farm across the road. I would give it 5 stars.


This is a super cottage - very comfortable and well equipped, ranking with the best we have ever stayed in. It's an excellent base for exploring the beautiful north coast by car or bike. Perhaps I should add that we are family but we wouldn't say it if we didn't mean it!

Pam & Andy Richardson, 

Had a wonderful weekend at this charming Cottage. It is immaculate and in an ideal location to tour the North Coast. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Julie Hosford, 

Back from a weekend away in this lovely cottage, it was a home away from home, you could not say one bad thing thing abot the copperpot. Set just a stone throws distance away from the centre of portrush, my wife and friends enjoyed the cottage from the moment we walked in.
Cant wait for our next trip to the Copperpot Cottage!!

Adam Sloan, 

Our family have just returned from a fantastic weekend stay at Copperpot Cottage. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome from host Nicci who kindly left us a bottle of wine and basket of logs which came in handy on a cold Friday night in April! The cottage is presented to a high specification, is immaculately clean and retains all the homeliness and cosiness of a traditional cottage. This cottage is really a hidden gem which we fear will not be hidden for too long!! We look forward to returning soon.

Christine Farrell, 

A fantastic Cottage in a fantastic location. I have no hestiation in recommending.

Sarah Lampey, 

A really lovely cottage close to Portrush centre. I'm just back from a short stay - the cottage is spotless, very comfortable and very well equipped. All the rooms are very spacious and the log burner in the living room is so cosy. There is plenty of room for secure car parking at the back of the cottage. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and couldn't do any more to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone!

Janette Weir, 

Just back from a short stay here and I cannot say enough good things about Copperpot Cottage! The entire place is immaculate, inside and out! The rooms are incredilby spacious but it still feels cosy! The kitchen is enormous and more than adequately equiped and the wood burning stove in the living room is amazing!! The cottage is in a quiet area but jump in the car and you can be in Portrush or Coleraine within minutes!
Jonny and Nicci are gracious and generous hosts and have a wealth of local knowledge. I honestly cannot fault your beautiful cottage! Thanks for having us....we shall most definitely be back!
