Hillfarm House Cottage
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Clean, very comfortable, cosy, well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

The lovely cottage had all the amenities required for our stay and is situated in beautiful grounds with we deer and a lake. Located deep in the quiet countryside yet only 10 minutes drive to Londonderry and 15 minutes from the the border with Ireland.

My wife and daughter tried to visit as many attractions as possible including but not limited to the Giant Causeway and famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge - and found that all were within easy driving distance from the cottage.

There are beaches within easy reach and we thoroughly recommend Dough Island beach over the border in Donegal. Some of the scenery on both sides of the border is breath taking.

Kevin and Caroline who are very friendly could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and interesting - Kevin to the point of getting absolutely drenched (on the one afternoon of rain we had) whilst endeavoring to show me some good fishing locations. He also obtained a fishing permit for me.

If you are into fishing, there are salmon and trout rivers nearby.

I recommend this property without hesitation.

Wonderfully isolated, peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Hillfarm House Cottage is a great place to get away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's quiet and peaceful and Kevin is an exceptional host. The property is well maintained throughout, with a lovely large living area/kitchen diner. The kitchen is well equipped and Kevin very kindly supplied fresh eggs from his hens, butter, cereal, home made jam, bread, milk, ham and cheese. Obviously these could be subject to availability. Tea and coffee was also provided. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. I would have liked to have seen an electric shaver point in the bathroom, and maybe a storage shelf and hooks for towels, but the lack of these is not detrimental to the overall facilities on offer at the property. There is wifi, a TV and DVD player. A hairdryer, iron and ironing board and clothes dryer are supplied. Washing machine, dishwasher are in the kitchen, and a tumble dryer is in one of the out buildings. Everything you need is here. One thing that would probably be unique is that Kevin has a wonderful herd of 9 Fallow Deer which Kevin will take visitors out to in the field in his truck, or you can just watch them from the surrounding fences. There is also a fishing lake and a few paths to walk around the fields. This is not a working farm, so it is quite safe for children, but adults should supervise children at all times anyway. The location is ideal for exploring the surrounding area and attractions. Londonderry is about 15 mins. drive, and the coast attractions are 45 min. - 1 hr. away. Portstewart is great as you can actually park on the National Trust beach and watch body surfers in the sea on windy days. Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-rade rope bridge are all within easy driving distance. It's worth driving to Larne, about 1 1/2 hours drive away and working the way back along the Causeway Coastal Route, some fantastic scenery and places to stop off. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who doesn't mind being out of built up areas and well into the countryside and needing to drive to the areas attractions. Thanks Kevin for a wonderful stay.
