Description from owner
Glowing reviews onTrip Advisor - Certificate of Excellence 2017. 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 50 acres, with or without dogs. (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), 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 (always in June to August), shorter periods of 3 nights or more off peak, please ask.
Both Belfast airports about 70 mins away.
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 GBP200.
Security deposit will normally be refunded directly by within 8 days of check-out, subject to any claim by us for damage, special cleaning or phone calls in excess of £10 per week.

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

“A Very Special Holiday Retreat and Doggie Paradise”
My wife and I , plus five small dogs have been coming to Huston’s Farmhouse twice a year from the past seven years in the Spring and Autumn . It has all the modern amenities required including underfloor heating , a large gas fired cooker , huge main bedroom and log burning stove but most importantly it feels so homely and welcomes family pets . They can be exercised safely in the rear enclosed garden or adjoining fields A welcoming pack of essential groceries is always on the kitchen table to welcome your arrival and the owner is always easily contactable and obliging if there is the occasional unforeseen glitch . All the delights of the Causeway Coast are easily reachable and can cater for all tastes and pursuits with fine dining establishments a plenty . It has therefore become our favourite adopted family holiday location .
“Cracking wee place.”
Loads of space and comfortable. Good location for exploring the coast. Shops and food nearby. With the biggest bathtub I've ever been in!
We stayed for one week when we attended the British Open golf tournament. For 2 of us this was a ton of space ... they say rental for up to 5 but there's enough living space for more. The kitch… More

Owner's reply: Thank you Elizabeth for this lovely review. You packed a lot into a week. When booking again do ask for your returner discount of 10% off the core rent. Adrian
“Great place to stay”
Had a really nice relaxing break - the house was lovely and my doggies had a ball, except for the wee dog taking a dip in the pond!!
Owner's reply: Delighted to hear you all enjoyed the yourselves. Our dogs have fallen in the pond too. Hope to see you again Adrian and Felicity Huston
“Can't wait to return - amazing spot”
Myself and my partner stayed here for three nights. If I could give it more than 5/5 I would. Beautiful cottage with everything you could want and more. Communication with the hosts was excellent and … More
Owner's reply: Glad to hear you enjoyed the place so much and used the bus to go into Portrush. You can even get the same bus right round to Portstewart and the iconic Morellis ice cream parlour on the Promonade. Do bring the spaniel next time. When booking ask for your returner discount of 10% off the basic rental. Adrian
“Excellent stay at Huston Farmhouse”
A great property, layout was ideal for our family. The dogs loved the walks around the garden and the surrounding fields. Close to lots of amenities and stunning beaches. Plenty to do for all ages. Some fabulous restaurants in Portrush if you don't fancy cooking. The property was very well equipped with a nice welcome pack, the wheaten bread was fab! The whole area was a revelation and can highly recommend. The spectacular bathroom upstairs was wonderful!!!
Owner's reply: We are so glad to hear you all enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again.
“What a welcome”
The owners could not have been more helpful, we needed a Wednesday to Wednesday booking for a family wedding, and this was OK, by Adrian So off we set to Huston Farmhouse.Fantastic, from the location, the access, the facilities, all were as described by other reviewers. But what wasn't obvious was the welcome pack, all that was missing was someone to make the tea coffee and toast, wheaten bread is now top of my must haves. Superb beaches nearby, fields at the doorstep to walk with the dog. Dog friendly doesn't begin to describe it all. Unreservedly recommend this location, even with cool weather
Owner's reply: Thank you very much. So glad you enjoyed your stay
Recently stayed at the Huston Farmhouse with my 3 kids (under 9) and my wife. We had a fabulous stay. Plenty of space, inside and out. Portrush a very short drive away. We were lucky with the weather … More
Owner's reply: Thanks for the lovely review. So glad the family had a great time. When booking again contact us for the discount off the core rental cost. (Holidaylettings fee then gets added.) Adrian
