Fancy living in one of the iconic Northern Ireland locations of Game of Thrones - and accessing your house through a cave?

Fancy living in one of the iconic locations of Game of Thrones - and accessing your house through a cave? Look no further.

The Cave House on the Cave Road in Cushendun is an historical 18th Century residence.

And how you get to it will make you feel like you living in the HBO hit series as one of its key features is a private avenue winding through the caves which leads to the setting which is completely secluded and sheltered by the surrounding cliffs.

It was here that Nicholas de la Cherois Crommelin lived during the middle years of the 19th Century. In 1903, Crommelin's grand-daughter Constance married John Masefield the "poet of the sea" who was to become England's poet laureate.

Masefield spent his honeymoon at Cushendun where, looking out across the waters of the North Channel, it is possible to imagine that the famous lines: "Dirty British Coaster with a salt caked smoke stack butting through the Channel in the mad March days" might easily have been written here.

The site itself extends to approximately 7.9 acres and enjoys uninterrupted sea views embracing Torr Point and the Mull of Kintyre towards Scotland.

The property was home to the Sisters of Mercy and is one of the most secluded of retreats, best seen from sea or air, however can be glimpsed at a distance from Torr Road at the north of the village.

The property is in shell condition and requires total restoration/demolition with a more modern contemporary build.

The asking price on the house is £375,000 and more information is available here
