Bellarena Railway Station is situated on the A2, 13 miles west of Coleraine and 5 miles North of Limavady. The station opened to passenger and goods traffic on the 18th of July 1853 and although there was a brief closure of the station to passenger traffic, it is still in use as a stop on the Belfast/City of Derry line. The architect John Lanyon designed the building.

This is now the last station before Derry City on a line considered to be one of the most picturesque railway journeys in Ireland or Britain, and yes, the trains still stop at the door!! It is an ideal location for Golfing, Fishing, Walking or just a relaxing break in the country. It is located at the foot of the stunning Binevenagh Mountain and to the west are Lough Foyle and the hills of the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal.

The station has been renovated to a high standard and in two separate units. The Stationmaster's House is two-storey and overlooks the platform. It sleeps up to 7 and is made up of 2 bedrooms, a large sitting room with fireplace & double futon, kitchen/dining area and a large bathroom. The second unit is designed around the former waiting rooms, ticket office and luggage rooms. This unit can comfortably sleep 8. There are 2 permanent bedrooms, a sitting room with fire place (which can also be used as a third bedroom) and a very large kitchen/lounge area. The kitchen has a breakfast bar as well as a dining area and along with the old Ticket Hatch. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, hand-basin and WC. Click here to see images of renovations.
