Stationmaster1 A view of the kitchen and entrance porch of the Stationmaster's House from the station garden. The climbing roses provide a burst of colour all summer long

Station1 The single storey area is the old Station buildings, with the level crossing beyond. There is comfortable parking for two cars, three at a squash.
The unusual alignment of the building on the garden side, provides several sun-traps. This is the view of Binevenagh from one of them. Garden1
Garden2 Looking out of the kitchen window, there is a pretty old stone farmhouse on the far side of the road.
Two rooms in the old station opened directly onto the platform. This corridor was built to create internal access to allow conversion of those rooms to two bedrooms. The long passage also creates the distance needed to allow Abraham Lincoln to be seen as Dali intended. Stationmasters2
BedSitting1 This room can be used as a double bedroom or as a sitting room. The bed can fold up into a large comfortable couch.

Bedroom2 The second bedroom is also a double room. Another bright room with two windows overlooking the garden, fields and mountains as a backdrop.
The third bedroom in the station contains three beds, two single and a double. (A single and the double are in bunks.) It can comfortably sleep two adults or 4 children. Bedroom3
Kitchen The lounge contains a galley style kitchen with a breakfast bar. Four high stools are provided to facilitate using the counter for meals.
The Lounge also has an area for dining. Six can eat at the table in comfort and it can fold away neatly if more space is needed. The room is very bright with windows all along the railway side, providing lovely views across the fields to Lough Foyle and the hills on Inishowen peninsula. Lounge1
Loumnge2 The lounge also has plenty of comfortable seating and the couch here opens into an extra double bed for those unexpected guests.
The entrance to the Station section of the house is through these half glassed doors which flood the lounge with light in the morning and early afternoon. This was the passenger entrance to the Station for over 100 years. Lounge3
Bathroom1 This bright new bathroom was installed when the Station was renovated in 2005. It is tiled as a wetroom and has fittings to help visitors with redueced mobility.
This is a shot of the same bathroom taken in the opposite direction, showing the walk-in shower. Bathroom2
