CORONAVIRUS 2021 – to all our guests









Update 15/4 – WE ARE RE-OPENING – 30th APRIL 2021 :- (bookings restricted to guests from a single household or bubble)

We hope you and your families are all very safe and well. We can’t wait to welcome our guests (and fur babies) back for a break, to enjoy the seclusion and peace of the cabin, especially in these difficult and worrying times. We are also pleased to announce a new facility, The Barn, self-contained accommodation, in a private setting, opposite the house, self-catering, suitable for children and, of course, pet friendly.
Our priority is for everyone to stay safe and well, follow NHS and government advice so we can all safely get through this pandemic.
With changeable circumstances, bookings must currently be taken on the understanding that safety and government advice must allow holiday-let rental and associated travel at that time. Of course, if you pay a deposit and wish to cancel your booking at ANY time, for ANY reason, between booking time right up to arrival date, or if the booking must be cancelled due to coronavirus or to follow government advice, your deposit will be refunded in full, or if you prefer can be held pending selection of new dates.
We have stringent procedures in place for your safety and confidence, including thorough disinfecting and steam cleaning, so you can truly relax and enjoy your stay. Unfortunately, for now, that means we are unable to provide some of the items listed in this website (eg books, CDs, games, telescope, food items etc) and our usual little extras and personal touches (a full list will be provided on request and at booking confirmation so you know the additional items you may wish to bring with you). We hope this will not detract from your experience and thank you for your understanding. The wildlife is definitely still here! 
If you have any concerns or additional requests please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss them as we aim to ensure you have a really enjoyable, safe and stress free stay.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you very soon 
Stay Safe

Check out our log style cabin at the river, for rent on a self-catering basis. Perfect for nature lovers, or even just for a romantic getaway or quiet break, it stands alone, set between woods and countryside. We are located in Aghadowey,  between the towns of Coleraine & Ballymoney, convenient to the tourist trail of the North Coast and all it has to offer. We are also very close to facilities such as The Brown Trout Inn & Golf Club, Drumaheaglis Marina & Canoe Trail and horse riding. Pets Welcome. NITB Certified.

THE BARN – Self Catering, Family & Pet Friendly

Alternatively, for a quiet getaway, The Barn at Willowfield is a charming self-contained holiday let, suitable for children and is pet friendly. The quaint white building (storey and a half) is in a quiet rural setting within the grounds of Willowfield. It’s a great place for a quiet getaway, or to use as a base to explore our wonderful North Coast. With open plan living, kitchen and dining area, well equipped and very comfortable. There is a spacious bedroom upstairs (with ensuite shower room), a double bed for 2 guests, but also the flexibility of sleeping 3 or 4 more. There are two patios with seating, to make the most of the sun on either side of The Barn, both with charming garden areas. Pets Welcome. NITB Certified.

We have a range of products to cater for your birds and wildlife, including nest boxes and feeders, to encourage them into your garden for you to enjoy. We also have some fun and educational items for children, such as the plush birds (with birdsong), as well as attractive gifts for you and your home.

We offer a range of services to help you, including the set up and maintenance of bird feeders and feeding stations in your own garden, as well as special packages for local schools, residential homes and businesses.



At Willowfield, where we live with our pets, we pride ourselves in also providing a home for nature, and our aim is to encourage and enable others to experience and enjoy it for themselves. We are so lucky to have so many species of birds here, 57 at the last count, we want others to share in the joy they bring.

We are very fortunate that our grounds extend to the banks of the Aghadowey River (the ‘Wee Agivey’) that brings it’s own wildlife flowing through, from the fish in the river and birds like the kingfisher, dipper and assorted ducks and swans, to the hedgehogs, foxes, badgers and the otters that have recently appeared.

We have our own pet goats in residence in the paddock. We also have a wildlife pond full of life;  frogs, fish, dragonflies and damselflies, all very attractive to the local heron population, and the little islands in the middle of the pond have offered safe haven to ducks and their ducklings fleeing the fox!


Whether you come and stay in Willowfield Riverside Cabin for a bit of relaxing bird & nature spotting, or The Barn for a family break, or take advantage of the Wild Bird Feeding Services and Wildlife Products we offer for your own home, we  hope we can help you share in the joy of birds and the nature  around us all.

We Hope To See You Soon. . . . .
