This charming little dwelling, originally the Old School House and seat of learning for the area, was given to Charlie McCooke in the forties by Leslie McAuley (then owner of the surrounding farm). Charlie converted it into a family home and lived there until his death in 1996. Charlie, a local celebrity, was from a large family and was a well known runner, winning many medals and cups. In the 1940's he could often be seen on his practice run - a round trip to Logans Fashions! He, like his brothers, had a natural tallent for running and was both a local and regional champion of his day. The property bears his name as a tribute. The dwelling was restored by the Morrison Family who have farmed the surrounding land since the early fifties and have a prize winning herd of Belgian Blue Cattle.
Our well equiped dwelling offers up-market, peaceful accomodation, set in spacious mature gardens surrounded by open countryside. The property is fully equiped 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 and dish washer. Bed linen and towels are provided and if required a cot for young children can be made available. Off road parking is available for two cars on the drive alongside the house.
There is an open peat fire with both electricity and central heating included - PLUS FREE WiFi.
Charlie's is only a short drive from some of Northern Ireland's major attractions including 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 Dark Hedges Licensed restaurant .
