Apple Barn is a restored traditional stone barn close to Dunadry. Overlooking a leafy lane, stone walls and orchard. This is a charming and unique hideaway for one or two seeking a relaxing rural stay within easy reach of Belfast.
The Barn consists of a generous 50msq open living space with sitting area, superking double bed and basic kitchen facilities. There is a separate bathroom with bath/shower.
Close to Belfast international Airport, Apple Barn is perfect from a couple on holiday to a visitor on business. It can also be used as an annexe to Apple Cottage next door.
The recent restoration combines traditional deep wooden window sills, corrugated roof and reclaimed mill floorboards with an original interior style. The comfortable and generous living space contains African and Indian art works.
Recently planted woodland walks are possible from the barn door.
A convenient base to explore Ulster and beyond or just relax. Close to both Belfast airports and Larne or Belfast ferry ports, it is the perfect base to explore the Antrim coastline and glens yet not far to the attractions of Belfast and on into Co. Down. We are only 20 minutes by car to the Titanic Quarter.
We are pleased to have been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) Silver certificate as a means of improving our environmental performance. We have attended training seminars provided by GTBS and Antrim Council. The GTBS provide support and technical advice and through them we hope to minimise our impact and provide a sustainable quality service for our visitors.
We are sensitive to protecting our countryside. You are welcome to walk through our native tree plantation and to sample some of our seasonal vegetable or fruit. A variety of herbs-thyme, parsley, rosemary, mint and sage – grow close to your Barn door. There are several Elder trees nearby, traditionally planted for its antiseptic qualities. Perhaps you can give your car a rest for the day and walk through the fields, avoiding ones with cattle.
We would like to share our hopes for the future of our farmland. We have reduced our use of chlorine based detergents and we provide phosphate-free washing products in the kitchen and bathroom. The wood for our stove is well seasoned – reducing smoke and tar deposits, but it does require understanding of the principles to burn properly.
Most of the lighting is low energy and the rest will become so in time. We offer a change of linen once a week, though this can be increased for your own comfort. Bed linen is dried outdoors when possible, or spread out indoors. We aim to manage our business by keeping our waste to a minimum. Rubbish waste disposal, we aim to reduce landfill and recycle as far as possible within the local Antrim Borough council’s facilitites. We have our own compost and there is a compost caddy for vegetable scraps.
The Cottage and Barn have been fully insulated to current building regulations and have also been air tested for ventilation losses. The heating is fully controllable and we ask you not to turn up thermostats without good reason. Turn them down again as soon as you can or if you are going out.
The wood stoves give off good heat and the wood comes from our own wind fall trees which we are replacing at a faster rate. If you have the wood stoves burning, you will find the central heating will reduce the oil consumption. Cherrybrook has a 20kw wind turbine which offsets much of our electricity over the year. However the wind is not blowing all of the time and we ask you to be as vigilant as usual with electrical appliances.

We can only get so far when trying to view The Barn in it's rural location. The Barn is down the lane in front of you. Nevertheless you can get an idea of the surroundings. Click on the icon in the top right corner to view in full screen. (Escape will allow you to exit full screen mode). Hold the left button on your mouse and drag to view from different angles. To move along the road either click the arrows on the road or choose a spot further along the road and left click your mouse once to advance! (If you don't move your mouse far enough away you will see a magnifying glass in your circle, move a bit further and it disappears. Click and advance! If you find yourself activating the magnifying glass simply right click and zoom out.)
You will have noticed a small window to the bottom right with a little yellow man in the centre. What you are seeing in the main window is the view through his eyes. This window can be enlarged by clicking the arrow in the top left corner. Use the '+' and '-' to zoom in/out. You can also drag the yellow man to e.g. the nearest town and have a quick tour before you arrive! Of course the blue icon represents the location of The Barn.
Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ...
