Myself, my sister Tracey and my cousin Sinead decided to take our Nanna Betty over to Carrick to visit family as a surprise for her 75th birthday; we wanted a cottage and this was absolutely perfect!
Alison was extremely accommodating and if we needed anything they were right next door; the cottage was nice, warm and cosy with lots of original features, all the amenities you’d need and in a perfect location to visit everyone. It was so comfortable for Nan as she’s not that mobile and spacious enough that we actually held a birthday party there with family
There was plenty of room outside too; grandchildren came and played in the back garden and playhouse and ‘Betty’s Bothy’ was both a brilliant little nod to picking the perfect holiday home for our Nanna, as well as being great for cosy outside socialising and drinking!
Would absolutely recommend staying at the Haven; hoping to return in the summer months to take advantage of barbecues; it’s not too far from Carrickfergus Castle and the Belfast Lough for those who’d like to visit the area, but for us it really was a perfect home-from-home retreat 🙂
