With picturesque walks around Downhill Castle and gardens located literally on your doorstep. Famous for Games of Thrones which was filmed directly on beach opposite. This spacious 4 bedroom house is nestling in the downhill cove, with its elevated garden overlooking the beach and private parking for up to 4 cars. Downstairs consists of 2 double rooms one with ensuite, 1 twin room and 1 single room with a guest bed if required. The downhill house sleeps 8 comfortable. There is a downstairs toilet and upstairs bathroom. The living room and kitchen is located upstairs to benefit from the magnificent views. The downhill beach is blue flag beach and is manned by life guards directly in front of house from April to September to insure safety for children. Ideal for water sports i.e. surfers, jet skiers and sand surfers. This also would appeal to young families as Benone complex is a mile up the beach with heated outdoor pools and a 9 hole golf course. For the more professional golfer Castlerock, Portrush and Portstewart golf courses are within easy reach. Also a great location for anyone attending the very popular wedding venue at the Temple and gardens as a 5 minute walkMore
