The space
The Old Flax Mill near Coleraine has a unique heritage stay and market position in terms of its huge size which can accommodate large groups of people under one roof .
We have nine regular bedrooms six of which are luxury ensuites, a family room of four singles and a ground floor room for the less well abled
Three lounges on the ground floor and a fourth on the top floor so groups can gather as the wish.
A riverside walkway down by steps astride the Old Mill gives this property a distinctive flavour of the year it was first built, 1786
On a summer day there is no better place to unwind with privacy or bbq by the river with all the mill facilities less than 100 yards behind.

Where you’ll be

Coleraine, United Kingdom

The area is quiet and relaxing as a destination in its own right but if you want to venture out tourist attractions abound close by with enough attractions to keep visitors busy for a fortnight or more

The Flax Mill is centrally placed close to the boundaries of Counties Antrim and Londonderry making it ideal for trips to world famous Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills Irish Whiskey distillery to the east which are must do Irish stops. Portush, Portstewart & Portbalintray and Ballycastle give you a huge choice of seaside resorts to dine and entertain the family

To the west you may wish to try some of Northern Ireland’s greatest natural and cultural treasures – the Benone Beach, Downhill, Mussenden Temple and the historic, legendary City of Londonderry.
