    “Really enjoyed our stay.”

    The house was perfect, very clean and well maintained. It was all very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped and things were easy to use. The house manager was really friendly and helpful when we met him as he came to look after the garden. Lots to do in County Antrim. We will certainly consider coming back. We should have booked for two weeks.

The property

Dervock 1.3 miles.

Tucked away in the quaint countryside of County Antrim, on the outskirts of Dervock is this large manor house of Knockanboy House.

A fabulous setting for a family of up to 11's Northern Irish break, the property boasts beautiful interiors, encompassed by stunning gardens and enjoys access to both the coast and country.

After parking in one of the off-road spaces, make your way inside to the marvellous entrance hall and hang your things in the handy boot room.

The dwelling offers two delightful sitting areas for you to unwind in, with one being a sophisticated drawing room that is warmed by an open fire and offers ample seating, along with a piano, games and books.

Further along is the other relaxing area, the sitting room, where even more games can be found for the kids and a Sky TV that offers a range of programmes for you to enjoy.

Continue to the property's kitchen/diner, a large space enjoying shaker-style units that house a range of fantastic appliances, including an electric AGA range, as well as a dining area that is heated by a woodburning stove, making for the perfect socialising spot.

A smaller kitchen rests next door and offers two handy dishwashers and an electric cooker, for extra convenience.

After an evening packed with quality time with the family, freshen up in the cloakroom before popping any old clothing in the first-floor utility's washing machine.

Rest your head in one of six fabulously appointed bedrooms on the first floor, with one being a spacious super-king-size, another being an elegant king-size, along with a twin room that enjoys Jack-and-Jill access to the shower room and a single that is accompanied by a child bed; perfect for the kids!

Completing the bedrooms is a marvellous master bedroom that offers a king-size and a well-presented en-suite bathroom, where you can soak up in the roll-top bath; the room is situated directly next door to a day bed with a cot.

The family bathroom is nearby and enjoys a large walk-in shower that offers a rejuvenating rinse as well as a bath, whilst the Jack-and-Jill shower room has also been finished to a high standard and can be reached via the hallway.

In the morning, make the most of the mature gardens surrounding the property and enjoy a stroll along the spacious lawns, play some ball games in the paddock or simply unwind in the sun on the patio.

A short drive will take you to Dervock, a village offering you all you need for your self-catering stay, including a handful of eateries, pubs and a convenience shop.

Discover the local area and spend the day exploring the nearby Benvarden Gardens, the beautiful Dark Hedges or enjoy a round of golf at the marvellous Gracehill Golf Course.

Why not venture to the coast and spend the day in Portrush, home to a range of gorgeous beaches, including the Whiterocks Beach, ample establishments offering sea view dining, including the popular 55 Degrees North, and boat trips to the Skerries Islands.

Explore more of the coast and visit the lovely resorts of Portstewart and Castlerock or travel inland to the bustling towns of Ballymoney and Coleraine; you'll rarely find yourself lacking things to see and do here!

Ample joy is waiting to be had at the impeccable Knockanboy House.
