Maddybenny Farmhouse

Just two miles from Portrush, the White family’s Plantation Period farmhouse was built before 1650.


Since extended, and now modernised, it makes a very comfortable and exceptionally hospitable place to stay, with a family-run equestrian centre nearby (including stabling for guests’ own horses). There is also snooker, a games room and quiet sitting places, as well as a garden and an outdoor area for children’s games.


The accommodation is just as thoughtful. The bedrooms are all en-suite and there are all sorts of useful extras electric blankets, a comfortable armchair, hospitality tray complete with tea cosy, a torch and alarm clock beside the bed, trouser press, hair dryer and, on the landing, an ironing board, fridge and pay phone for guest use.


Across the yard there are six self-catering cottages, furnsihed to a very high standard and open all year (one is wheelchair friendly).


No evening meals, but Karen White guides guests to the local eating places that will suit them best - and the breakfasts here are legendary, so make sure you allow plenty of time to start the day with a feast the like of which you are unlikely to encounter again.


*Maddybenny was the Guide’s Farmhouse of the Year in 2000.
