From the owner

Glowing reviews onTrip Advisor.. As seen on BBC TV news G00gle it. The Hustons have farmed this land for almost 200 years. This has been the family holiday home since it was rebuilt on the original site in 2004. Feel free to roam around the 15 acres, unless there is barley or potatoes growing, with or without dogs. On the lane the first gate on the left goes into the big Hill Field. Even if it has a crop, go in there and there's another gate on the left. In there we have a long strip along two side of the field. Separate from the crop. Here we have planted 1,300 trees in 2022 and 2023 with lots of space to roam. Watch out for the odd thistle! (No livestock to worry about.)

Dog numbers and restriction - if the largest dog is Cocker Spaniel size, max dogs 4, otherwise 3. Also if your dog is in season it cannot come as the farm has un-neutered dogs nearby and we have also suffered serious damage to carpets due to a dog in season.

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 tourism NI websites under gameofthrones 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), fast Wi-Fi, real fires, Sony Flat-screen TV/ HD Freeview. Also Bluray & DVD player/ DVDs and a Wii.

There's a large farmhouse table in the kitchen, seating 10,this opens into the lounge with a vaulted wooden ceiling with picture windows facing South & West. Off the kitchen is a Utility room housing a freezer, second fridge, washing machine & 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 -a walk-in linen cupboard & a private dedicated bathroom. This massive bathroom has a large power shower & free-standing bath in the middle of the room.With top golf courses all around, and great beaches the house is popular with golfers & families with dogs,or without.

Bushmills Distillery & 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.

Both Belfast airports about 70 mins away.

Further details

6 weeks before check-in the balance of 90% is payable plus a security deposit of GBP200.

In event of cancellation see the standard contract sent at time of booking. Let for whole weeks. Check-in is from 1500hrs with you collecting a hidden key. (We live 60 miles away)

Check-out by 10.00hrs.

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. To reduce the impact on the environment a lot of the wood burned is recycled wood from re-roofing the farm, or from fallen trees.

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.

Kitchen has a double USB socket to the left of sink, so you can pack fewer electrical bits. All bedrooms have double USB sockets.

Check in is 3pm or after by collecting a hidden key.

Check-out is 1000am.

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 gas cylinder 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 small 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 and along the lane. Dogs can be walked off their leads.

In 2022 we planted 1,000 trees in our largest field, the Hill Field. 2023 and we made up the total trees to 1,300.Feel free to walk between them as we watch them grow. On the lane first gate on left then left once into the field.

There is a pizza oven (temp out of action summer 2023) and summerhouse beside it to enjoy, at your own risk. Firepit available and portable BBQ in shed attached to farmhouse. Pizza tools are in the end store of the summerhouse.
