The Derry Coastline

This iconic coastline is positioned within the Causeway Coast and Glens area and has been recognised internationally for its stretch of railway between Coleraine and Derry.

The beautiful Binevenagh and Downhill are areas of outstanding natural beauty. With the Mussenden temple, castle and gardens surrounding this property also the Downhill and Benone strand directly in front of you. Our beautiful house nestles in the Downhill cove with elevated garden and upstairs living room overlooking the beach, this is definitely a place to chillax and escape from the hussel and bussel of city life or to enjoy one of the many other attractions Benone and the Causeway coast has to offer.

Benone tourist complex which supports children's amusements, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course is a mile away or a 15 minute walk up the beach. Great for sports activities i.e. mountain biking, surfing, fishing, golfing in the many local golf courses. Also great location if attending a wedding in the Mussenden temple. This is an location which would suit anyone wanting to de-stress, charge their batteries and have a fun family holiday.

We look forward to being your hosts.
