About the property

WINNERS OF THE PRESTIGIOUS NORTHERN IRELAND TOURISM AWARDS 2016......

AS FEATURED IN 25 BEAUTIFUL HOMES NOVEMBER 2015

Number 1 Barn Lane is a stunning three-bed barn extension set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and nestled in the Sperrin Mountains, overlooking Lough Foyle and the Donegal Hills.

Designed and owned by award-winning architects, this contemporary styled new property has three double/twin rooms and three bathroom/shower rooms over two floors.

The ground floor boasts a living and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and separate utility room. A log burning stove and under floor heating throughout the ground floor makes the open plan space extremely cosy.

Set in private grounds on a family farm, the barn is the perfect base from which to explore the many attractions of the Ireland’s dramatic northern coastline.

Explore the highlights of the north coast:

The bustling seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart are within a 25-minute drive of the barn, with Portballintrae, Ballycastle and County Donegal all within reach.

The glorious beaches for which the North Coast is famed all offer great surfing, kite surfing and bodyboarding and are easily accessible.

Benone Beach, Mussenden Temple, Downhill Demesne, Hezlett House and the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge are just some of the more local attractions (15-25 minutes drive away), while the magnificent Giants Causeway – a UNESCO World Heritage site - and its award-winning visitors centre is also a short drive.

The Roe Valley Country Park, offering salmon fishing and serene riverside walks through wooded glades, is just five minutes away.

For Irish whisky lovers, the world famous Bushmills distillery can be reached within half an hour.

Golfers will be spoilt for choice, with world class golf courses including Royal Portrush, Portstewart, Castlerock and Ballycastle all within reach.

Game of Thrones fans can walk in the footsteps of the Starks and Lannisters by visiting one of Causeway Coast and Glens filming locations. Scenes from Winterfell, Dragonstone, Pyke, The Stormlands and the King’s Road were all filmed here.

Further afield the capital city of Belfast is just over an hour away, making visits to the many theatres and award-winning restaurants, the Titanic Museum, W5 and the Ulster Museum all achievable.

Londonderry/Derry, a former Capital of Culture, with its famous walls and intriguing history, is a 45-minute drive.

A property that delivers what it promised in spades!

  • 5 of 5

A property that delivers what it promised in spades! Superb modern house in wonderful location. Overall design and attention to detail so pleasing to the eye and very comfortable and convenient. Our dog also had a great time, once she had adapted herself to the tiled floor! Owners very helpful and even dropped my hiking boots off with people in Coleraine after we had left and forgotten them! Would recommend a stay here to anyone and we hope to return in the future.

Contemporary home in idyllic Northern Irish countryside

  • 5 of 5

My family from the U.S. returned to County Derry in N. Ireland this summer to explore our ancestral roots. We stayed in this beautiful 3 bdrm/3 bath home with spectacular sunsets over Lough Foyle. It is easy to imagine yourself 50, 100 or 200 years ago gazing out on the cow pasture and rolling green hills. There were homemade brownies and fresh flowers to greet us when we arrived. Kim and Derek provided all of the information we needed prior to our arrival and they were always available to answer questions and to provide helpful information during our visit. A washer and dryer are located in the downstairs bath.

This property is perfect for visits to the walled city of Londonderry, a walk through Free Derry, or drives to the northern coast to visit Giant's Causeway, Bushmills or Game of Thrones sites. It is an easy and scenic drive to the Inishowen peninsula and to County Donnegal, both of which boast breathtaking views. We also took a day-trip to Belfast for a black cab "Troubles tour" (highly recommended) and a visit to the Titanic museum.

The house has both a back and a front terrace to enjoy, and the interior rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is also perfect for entertaining and provides a charcoal grill. I asked for extra hangers (only 3/bdrm are provided) and Derek brought them 'round after we returned from our daylong excursion. The home displays beautiful hand-painted artwork from the owners' family. The cows in the field greeted us every evening as we turned into the drive of the house, and they were standing outside the front windows each morning 'joining' us for breakfast. They enjoy treats of parsnips!

The only deficiencies that we found in the house were an absence of closets or hanging space for clothes (each bedroom provides 2 hooks and one bedroom has a hanging bar) and there are no shelves in the shower stalls for shampoo/soap, nor hooks for hanging extra towels or clothing items ~ but each bath has a heated towel bar, and the downstairs tile floors are heated.

The house is perfect for couples, adult families or for families with young children and the upstairs bath has a bathtub. We hope to return in summers to come!

Contemporary cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1 Barn Lane. The home was designed and decorated in a stunning yet welcoming fashion.

The location was perfect for touring, Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-rede bridge, Glenveagh National Park Doungal, Royal Portrush, Glenarrif Forest Park and Bushmills.

The house was very clean, and well supplied with nice towels, your typical kitchen appliances and everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

We were also greeted with a plate of the richest brownies a very welcome touch after a long drive.

Thank you –
