Glowing reviews onTrip Advisor . As seen on BBC TV news Google it. The Hustons have farmed this land for almost 200 years. This has been the family holiday home since it was rebuilt on the original site in 2004. Feel free to roam around the 50 acres, with or without dogs. (No livestock to worry about.) Dog numbers and restriction - if the largest dog is Cocker Spaniel size, max dogs 4, otherwise 3. Also if your dog is in season it cannot come as the farm has un-neutered dogs nearby and we have also suffered serious damage to carpets due to a dog in season.Close to many Game of Thrones locations (Dragonstone, The Stormlands, Pyke, The Iron Islands, Storm's End, The Stormlands and The King's Road)-Location map at website of discovernorthernireland under gameofthrones The Dark Hedges (15 miles, 30 mins), and Ballintoy Harbour (16...

It is several years since we stayed at the Huston Farm. This time we were very lucky with the weather. It was absolutely glorious and we made the best of the wonderful beaches and attractive places in the area. While we sat outside enjoying the sunshine, our little dog enjoyed himself running around the garden. He even fell in the...

Book this! It's lovely! A fantastic kitchen/family room plus a cosy little snug for quieter evenings, two superb shower/bathrooms and three comfy bedrooms. There is nothing missing here. It is furnished beautifully with enough homely extras( Pictures, books, ornaments) to make it feel like a home rather than a rental, without any feeling of over cluttered.. We could have stayed...
