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.

Location description from owner

Northern Ireland 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

“Premier accommodation”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

Myself and 4 friends recently stayed at the Huston farmhouse and as with many first time long distance reservations, had the usual fears about what we would find when we arrived; I am delighted to report however, that the farmhouse was nothing short of spectacular. From the breathtaking views out of the airy and spacious living area to the tasteful decor and comfortable homely feel of the cottage, I cannot find fault in any aspect of our stay.

Having stayed in private rental accommodation in various places at home and around the World I know exactly what you mean. Felicity and I are delighted that our Farmhouse met your expectations, even if the weather for your visit could have been better. (There's a reason why Ireland is so green!) Adrian Huston

“Fantastic - this house has it all”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2012

This is a well equipped, comfortable house which will meet many holiday needs. Comfortable beds, great showers, plenty of room, sociable kitchen, we love the house. It was perfect for our 5 and 8 year old to explore the garden and a little further away, the fields. The house is decorated with the many personal touches which show it is regularly used by the family too. Also excellently located for the North Coast of Antrim, we used it for trips to the beach (recommend West Strand, Portstewart), places of interest (Giant's Causeway, Carrick-na-Rede), and nearby towns (Coleraine, Portrush, Portstewart, Ballycastle). Super place!
