“Back home now 5 days and are still pinning!.”
Reviewed 16 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

As a family, (that includes our pet dog), we love the north coast of our home country - Northern Ireland. We have spent many wonderful holidays there. So many places to visit, and all within easy reach, making it a true daily time of relaxing pleasure. Of course the number of our visits have resulted in a variance of holiday accommodation over the years. Truth be told we have been very satisfied, (with one exception), with such in the past, but on this occasion we all agree (and that includes the pet dog), we hit the jackpot. What a place! what a location! We had an absolute fantastic time. We were made most welcomed on our arrival. As for the accommodation.....absolutely amazing! Usually one might acknowledge same on arrival .... but we are still raving about it! The Houston family have very obviously done their homework, leaving no stone unturned, in making sure that not only is every need catered for, (and that includes the pet dogs'), but they have gone the extra mile in providing beyond such, resulting in what I can only 'TRY' to describe, by using the words, 'more than comfortable', 'most relaxing', 'very homely', with that extra flare of 'unexpected luxury', my description however doesn't give it full justice. Perhaps my title conveys a greater truth, because we are back home now 5 days and are still pinning! We most certainly will be back ASAP! The only negative thing I should point out is ...... the "tourist" boards rating??? Perhaps they should consult those of us who have actually stayed in the accommodation prior to applying their star ratings. That way the public that is looking for guidance re the standard of accommodation might be more accurately informed. For the record we rate The Houston Farmhouse Portrush, no less than a perfect ***** (5 star). Well done the Houston family and many many thanks indeed for a simply spectacular holiday. "BACK SOON"

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

Each year we book our holidays so we can bring are pack of dogs with us. Adrian had no problem with the four dogs and three humans coming to stay in the farmhouse.

Booking was straight forward and arriving was easy. We chose to arrive without anyone being there, only because the family are such bad timekeepers, I'll be late for my own funeral :-)

After getting in and finding out the layout, we more not disappointed in the farmhouse at all. The kitchen was super well equipped, with everything and more of the items you would need for a weeks stay. The lounge area was bright and spacious, lots of space and seating. The views amazing.

I have to say that the dogs had a brilliant time, which is the whole point afterall. The garden was amazing, they ran their little legs off. The fresh air, the space and the freedom were all they look for each year, The lane behind the farmhouse is a decent length and we walked it a few times when we were just too lazy to take them to the beach. It was so safe, well off the road and there aren't any animals, so it was ideal.

To stop wittering on about the dogs and actually review the accommodation, it was everything we expected and more. Rooms were bright, beds comfy, the little sitting room was just perfect with the sofa and open fire. To be honest, we didnt watch that much television, we had our iPads and the wi-fi was great. Can't be without our technology.

Lots of little extras were greatly appreciated ... the sugar, bread, milk, biscuits and butter were welcome, Everything for your stay was thought of even down to the poo bags!

The stove in the lounge area was just great, its been an age since I sat in front of one and I've even made enquiries about getting a multi fuel stove in my own house! You've started me on a spending spree Adrian.

I have included some photos and I have to confess, as is evident, I owe you a ball Adrian, Bonnie is a football freak and the other two dogs were getting in on the action.

So please, if you are thinking about going to the farmhouse, just book. You wont be disappointed.

“Didn't want to come home!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Just returned home from a weeks visit to The Huston Farmhouse and we were all sad to leave! Booked originally as a base for us to attend a wedding in Portrush we were accompanied by our two children under 6 and the useful grandparents.

The farm suits a family very well with separate bathrooms upstairs and down and a snug TV room for the kids. There is not a high chair or a cot which is something to note if you have wee ones but this could easily be rectified and we took our own along.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean upon arrival and I am a fussy guest so I am not easily impressed! The bathroom upstairs was beautiful and the underfloor heating kept us very cosy.

Near to both Portrush and Portstuart the farmhouse is a great base from which to explore Northern Ireland's beach lined coast and causeway. We will definitely be back!

Delighted to hear that a group with older children - doubtless they want called adults - loved their time at the Farmhouse. These days the wifi seems to be a big draw with all the family. We hope you will be back.

“Excellent family holiday”
Reviewed 26 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This is a return trip for us to the Huston Farmhouse and we had another fabulous stay. We had some gorgeous weather permitting great walks on the nearby beachs and when it rained we just lit the stove, snuggled up and did a jigsaw (thoughtfully provided by the owners) and watched the rain from the picture windows. The house has everything a family could want and the children are already asking when we can go back again. Perfect half term.
