We would love to welcome you to our lovely holiday apartment overlooking the Atlantic ocean in Castlerock. This little village has an award winning strand, a superb links golf course and a wonderful coffee shop. Its crowning glory is its proximity to Mussenden Temple a National Trust gem with amazing headland walks and beautiful gardens.The maiden city of Derry is a short train ride away and in the opposite direction lies the market town of Coleraine close to Portstewart and Portrush.
Having spent many childhood summer holidays in Castlerock and also having lived there for a few years, it has a special place in our hearts. We have returned regularly over the years and eventually bought our ideal apartment some time ago. It is a comfortable base from which to enjoy exploring the amazing scenery. In late spring the wild flowers grow in abundance on the cliff tops around the Mussenden Temple and the bluebells and wild garlic in the Black Glen are beautiful. Downhill Demesne with its ruined castle and beautiful gardens is a short walk away, while the beach at Castlerock is just across the street from the apartment. Coleraine, the local market town is just six miles away by car or ten minutes by local train. It's a great place for shopping or visiting the local swimming pool and there is a multi screen cinema and bowling alley open all hours. Portrush and Portstewart with their award winning golf courses are close by and are popular resorts especially during the summertime with lots of good restaurants and eateries to choose from. The Giants Causeway - a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its famous rock formations, is just fifteen miles by car and well worth visiting. If you continue round the north coast you'll find Carrick a Rede rope bridge and Whitepark Bay a short distance away and following this beautiful and stunning coastline you'll come to Ballycastle and the start of the Glens of Antrim.
A fifteen minute car ride in the opposite direction will take you to Magilligan Point where a car ferry sails regularly across Lough Foyle to Greencastle in Co Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. Castlerock is ideally situated either as a totally relaxing chilled out place or a base for a more active, outdoor holiday or simply exploring by foot, bicycle, public transport or car. Whatever your preferences, we hope you'll love it as much as we do and want to return again and again!
The apartment is on a secure site where access is through double gates at the front controlled either remotely or with a key code. There are three apartments in our block and no 1 is on the ground floor which gives us the added advantage of having a spacious patio for relaxation or the odd BBQ.
