    First offered for public rental in 2012, 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.)

    Rural doesn't have to mean basic..the farmhouse has cosy underfloor heating (October to May), Wi-Fi, real fires, TV with Freeview and DVD player and DVDs. 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.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    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 -...

On arrival we were met by the cleaner who showed us around with a warm welcome and gave us the keys. A lovely welcome pack was left for us in the kitchen inc bread, milk, butter, coffee, buns, etc which I thought was a lovely touch. The house was very clean and nicely presented. The kids loved looking at all... more

Management response:

So glad your family and dog had a great stay. We agree the pond means toddlers would need watched. When you do come back, even if in a few years, be sure to mention the fact that you have stayed in August 2014 to get 10% off. Adrian more

So glad you had a great trip and were lucky with the weather. Thank you for the kind comments about the house. Rathlin Island is indeed worth a visit.
