This spring and summer we have taken every available opportunity to hike Northern Ireland.
We stayed one weekend in a cottage at Ballintoy. It had a bright yellow stable door and a wood-burning fireplace, and it was just two minutes walk away from the local pub that specialises in mussels (which are also my new favourite food).
We spent our weekend reading novels, hiking the cliffs, walking the beach, and eating good food. What more could you possibly want?
