Snug, cosy and stylish, this retro former-horse box is full of charm and will enchant guests from the moment they arrive. Sitting in the countryside of rural Northern Ireland, near the wild coastline, the Oat Box is waiting to be discovered by romantics wishing to stop the clock, relax and enjoy this lovely home. The interior is intimate and has been beautifully considered with every last corner decorated and furnished with a vintage look, from the bathroom sink to the wall tiles.
The living/dining area is open plan. The original mahogany floor has been restored and reclaimed materials have been used throughout. Wooden panels cover the walls and an attractive curved wooden roof has old-style lights fixed in the panelling. Visitors will love to spend cosy nights cuddled-up on the deep, velvet sofa, sipping wine in the flickering light of the log burner. A small pull-out table provides space for dinner and there is further seating outdoors.
The bespoke oak kitchen area is a compact but well-equipped with a Belfast-style sink with copper taps and a small hob and oven. Utensils swing from kitchen hooks and wooden shelves holds vases of small bouquets. A door leads directly into the cute shower room which boasts vintage touches including an over-the-sink mirror and spectacular metal sink with beautiful shell tiling.
There are some lovely touches which further enhance the character of the Oat Box, including stain glass windows, 1920s style tiles and original artwork. For al fresco meals, head out to the wooden balcony which has been added to the side of the box. It is accessible directly from the home, so guests can easily make the most of the fresh air and countryside. There are also outdoor lounge chairs and fire pit for sitting out late into the night stargazing the spectacular night sky.
Come night time and a small wooden ladder, which doubles as a book shelf, takes sleepy guests to their warm and comfy bed. Floral scatter cushions and quilts and wooden blankets make it irresistible.
The Oat Box is vey conveniently located near the North Coast. It is just four miles from Whiterocks Beach at Portrush and also just four miles from Bushmills and Coleraine. A visit to the area wouldn't be complete without a trip to the spectacular Giant's Causeway. For great eats and great coastal views, head to The Newbridge at Coleraine and look out for the annual Salmon and Whiskey Festival held annually at Bushmills.
