Superbly located for the sites of the NW. Great base from which to explore and then eat in comfortable private surrounds. The pictures don't do justice to how huge the property is, it takes a day or to soak in

Management response:

We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Next time try the golf for which the area is world famous, more so with the British Open in 2019 in Portrush pls post your photos to our Facebook page too It was good the outside caterer worked out well we put all the reports back in the property information guide

However, we were in Northern Ireland to explore the Causeway Coast, and the Old Flax Mill proved to be a great...

Management response:

Very grateful for the review Gavin. The Patterson family joined us from beautiful York so it takes a lot to impress. Many thanks for staying with us Gavin, just lucky that that slot came up as August is very busy. Great to see groups from England venturing over the Irish sea once again. Next time bring your golf clubs!!
