Holiday Rental House
Benone Farmhouse is a beautiful country house retreat, situated in a stunning location, a stone throw away from Benone Beach. On a working farm, it was a family residence until recently. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard with rooms individually furnished in a boutique style. The art deco features of the house have been preserved whilst combining vintage retro with modern touches for comfortable living. Extensive grounds afford space for outdoor activities. Guests can fully absorb the beauty and serenity of the surroundings whilst relaxing outside. Garden furniture provides options for outdoor dining or picnics. The house also has a disabled access into the garden. A lockable outdoor barn provides storage for sports equipment and drying facilities, following a day spent ...Benone Farmhouse is a beautiful country house retreat, situated in a stunning location, a stone throw away from Benone Beach. On a working farm, it was a family residence until recently. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard with rooms individually furnished in a boutique style. The art deco features of the house have been preserved whilst combining vintage retro with modern touches for comfortable living. Extensive grounds afford space for outdoor activities. Guests can fully absorb the beauty and serenity of the surroundings whilst relaxing outside. Garden furniture provides options for outdoor dining or picnics. The house also has a disabled access into the garden. A lockable outdoor barn provides storage for sports equipment and drying facilities, following a day spent at the beach. There are uninterrupted panoramic views from every window, overlooked by the majestic Binevenagh mountain to the front and vast swathes of open countryside all around. The iconic Mussenden Temple to the East perched on the cliff face is instantly recognisable, as are the misty Donegal blue mountains to the west. At the end of the farm lane (less than 0.5miles) is the newly re-furbished Anglers Rest, under new management, serving good food and drink. If you fancy afternoon teas or a great Sunday dinner, Ballymaclary House, a beautiful Georgian period house is only a 2 min walk from the lane end. ‘On the doorstep’ within walking distance (or 2 mins by car), there is the impressive 7 mile stretch of Benone Beach with its Blue Flag status. Nearby is the Benone Complex offering a vast array of children’s activities including Crazy golf, tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool. The Board Walk cafe adjacent to the Complex, offers a relaxing place to sit and enjoy a family breakfast/lunch. Or for speciality coffee on the go, try the little sister coffee shop called Seashed situated at the edge of the beach at the end of Benone Avenue. The owners run Longline Surf School which offers a range of watersports activities/adventures for groups and individuals and comes highly recommended on visitor experience.More

Interaction with guests
I feel it is important to respect guests' privacy yet be available to address any concerns that may arise during their stay. On arrival, I normally meet guests to show them around and suggest local places of interest, activities and recommend local eateries if requested. If unable to do this on the day, a key would be left in a keypad and I would follow up asap with a phone call and a visit later to check they had settled in. I am committed to making my guests feel as comfortable as possible so that they are able to enjoy their holidays and take home pleasant memories.
