We were a walking group who enjoyed the hospitality and expertise of Ernie and Ann for several days in September. Ernie met us on arrival at Coleraine station, and delivered us to Belfast airport at the end of our stay. We benefited from our hosts' comprehensive knowledge of the many walking routes and magnificent viewpoints that this undervalued region has... More

No rooms available to stay at Waters Edge but Ernie was exceptional in assisting us for our walk along the coast from Port Stewart through to the rope bridge. His knowledge of the walks and history of the area is excellent value adding to our trip. If you want to walk the coast then Ernie is the one to talk... More

One of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. From the moment my 2 friends & I arrived nothing was too much trouble. Ann & Ernie made us feel so welcome. Their knowledge of the local area & coastal walks is 2nd to none. Rooms were immaculate. Breakfast was delicious & always gave you the energy you needed for the... More

Hearty welcome by Ernie and Ann into their lovely home. Spotless rooms, comfortable beds, beautiful views from all rooms overlooking the Portstewart Beach. Short coastal walk to restaurants, pubs and ice creameries. Ernie and Ann were very knowledgable and happy to provide all information we needed making the Anthrim Coast Walk all the more enjoyable. Would highly recommend!

Our visit to Northern Ireland and our stay at Water's Edge was my dream come true- a beautiful homestay and perfect hikes arranged daily. No need to carry a backback; our days began with a superb breakfast, followed by a daily walking trip arranged by Ernie, complete with maps and descriptions of our hike. Anne provided us with a bagged... More

I just returned from 4 wonderful days with Ernie and Anne Bogle at the Water's Edge B&B.

Downtown and center of town area is great for kids and there is plenty to keep children entertained but I found the prices for the childrens rides, activities and bouncy houses to be very inflated. The small rides and activites are not amazing or in the best shape but they are charging 2-4 pounds for every activity. When you have... More
