This has been the family holiday home since it was rebuilt in 2004. The Hustons have farmed this land for almost 200 years. Feel free to roam around the 50 acres, with or without dogs. (No livestock to worry about.)

Close to many Game of Thrones locations (Dragonstone, The Stormlands, Pyke, The Iron Islands, Storm's End, The Stormlands and The King's Road) - Location map at website of discovernorthernireland under gameofthrones (sorry link not permitted)

Convenient to The Dark Hedges (15 miles, 30 mins), and Ballintoy Harbour (16 miles, 30 mins).

Rural doesn't have to mean basic..the farmhouse has cosy underfloor heating (October to May), Wi-Fi (5Mbps+), real fires, Sony Flat-screen TV with HD Freeview. Also DVD player and DVDs and a Wii. There's a large farmhouse table in the kitchen, seating 10, and this opens into the lounge with a vaulted wooden ceiling with skylights and picture windows facing South and West. Off the kitchen is a Utility room, accessed via saloon swing doors, and housing a freezer, second fridge, washing machine and separate tumble-drier.

In the cosy living room there are rough walls, the TV and a comfortable L-shaped settee. Great to retreat to on a winter's evening, or to get away from the rest of the house!

Downstairs there are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and one single, plus a bathroom with large walk-in power shower.

Upstairs is the Master bedroom - spacious and comfortable - and a walk-in linen cupboard and a private dedicated bathroom. This massive bathroom has a large two-door power shower, a free-standing bath in the middle of the room and a comfy chair should you want company while you soak.

With top golf courses all around, and great beaches the house is popular with golfers and families with dogs, or without.Bushmills Distillery and the Giants Causeway are only 15 minutes away, and if you don't fancy driving the farmhouse is set 300m from a main bus route - 3 miles takes you to Coleraine (trains to Belfast, Dublin or Derry) or Portrush.

Usually rented for complete weeks, shorter periods of 3 nights or more off peak, please ask.

Further details indoors

As this remains our family holiday home, it is equipped to a very high standard. Your welcome pack includes local bread, milk, tea and coffee. Wood, coal and firelighters are provided for the fires. The fire in the lounge is a cast-iron multi-fuel stove. It gets very hot and really heats up the area well, and there is no risk of sparks flying out.

In the cosy living room there is a small open fire which is best run just on a little coal. Let the parents have upstairs and the children have downstairs bedrooms / shower room and everyone has their own space.

Pets welcome - there is even a cat-flap if puss is feeling adventurous! Please keep dogs downstairs and off beds.

This is a non-smoking house, though you are welcome to smoke outside.

Check in is 3pm, or a key can be left for later - by arrangement. Check-out is 1030am.

Further details outdoors

The house is in the middle of a traditional Irish farmyard - indeed it is connected at one end to one of the sheds (which now houses the boiler and spare dining chairs etc.) No farm vehicles come up the yard past the house as there is a chain blocking the way. This leaves a dedicated parking area capable of taking 4 or 5 cars easily. This is a working farm, with no livestock, so at times there will be farm vehicles around. The farm lane passes along the top end of the house so you will hear a tractor if it passes. You are welcome to walk on the farm which extends to 50 acres. Dogs can be walked off their leads.

Further details

10% of rental payable as non-refundable deposit on booking.

6 weeks before check-in the balance of 90% is payable plus a security deposit of £200.

Security deposit will normally be refunded within 5 working days of check-out, subject to any retention for damage, special cleaning or phone calls in excess of £10 per week.

In event of cancellation the 90% balance will be returned if the property can be re-let, subject to a 25% administration charge.

Usually let for whole weeks, but shorter periods 3 nights and above will be considered outside summer months. Please ask.

Check-in is normally at 1500hrs, (or key left after that) check-out by 1030hrs.

The County Antrim region

Home to Royal Portrush Golf Club (Irish Open 2012), the Giants Causeway, the Milk Cup (football / soccer), Bushmills Distillery and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Surfing at Portrush's East Strand (tuition available.)

Excellent dog walks along the beaches, through forest trails, along the coastal paths. Drive your car onto the beach at nearby Portstewart - one half of the beach allows cars and beyond that it is car-free.

A popular tourist area it abounds with entertainment - from the well established Riverside Theatre in Coleraine (famous actor James Nesbitt cut his teeth here), to the family Summer Theatre in Portrush, cinemas, world-famous nightclubs at Kellys.

Enjoy wholesome traditional funfair rides and slot machines at the famous Barrys in Portrush.

Take a train from Coleraine to Derry - a coastal route described by Michael Palin as “one of the most beautiful rail journeys in the world”.

Portrush

In the Huston family for almost 200 years the farm sits on 50 acres which guests can use for walks and exercising children or dogs. At the end of the lane is a bus-stop where you can take a bus to Coleraine or Portrush, and from there trains or buses to further afield.

The farm is on the course of the famous North West 200 motorbike race (each May) and on the land is the chicane at Mathers Cross. The farm lane was where the racer Robert Dunlop's fatal accident started and is a flag marshall post.

Visit Coleraine for excellent shopping in independent stores, Benone Strand for beach activities, Portstewart for nightlife and people-watching along the Promenade.

The Coleraine to Londonderry train trip was described by Michael Palin as one of the great railway jouneys of the World. A visit to the historic city, with a bite of lunch, makes great day out.

About a half-mile away is Maddybenny stables where you can avail of pony-trekking, lessons, cross-country fences etc. www.maddybenny.com

Thank you for your kind comments and tips which are helpful for people thinking of visiting this lovely part of the country. Felicity and I are pleased that the dogs and you enjoyed the break.

As you say a working farm at times means noise and smell. Though with no animals there is less activity and smell than many farms. We will have a look at those knives in the kitchen and see if we can replace them.
When coming back for your next family visit be sure to ask for the 10% returning guest discount.
