How to get there
Airport: Belfast International: 15.5 mi
Railway: Ballymena Train Station: 5.4 mi
Ferry: Larne Harbour: 19.9 mi
The mill is just 1/4 mile from Kells village and 1 mike from the main duel carriageway, A26. There is a large stone with 41 & 41a painted on it on the roadside at the entrance. The house is accessed by driving across a ford in the river. Should the river is too high to drive through, there is an alternative way in. This will be visible on confirmation of booking. When possible or if you have any difficulty, I will meet you and show you the way.
