The Lodge is some 4 miles inland from the small friendly town of Ballycastle which has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. It is in a tranquil rural location, beside a National Forest and on a National Cycle Route.

The Coast offers stunning scenery, sailing, way-marked walks, golf courses, sandy beaches and surfing for the real enthusiast! It is an ideal location for photographers, painters and poets. The Lodge is a purpose-built, single-storey, level access, self-contained, self-catering unit which is equipped to NITB Four Star standard. The Lodge is designed to sleep 2/4 people and is part of a modern residential property completed in late-2010.Private off-road parking, large garden (frequently visited by red squirrels!) with summer house and BBQ available.

The County Antrim region
The Causeway Coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you are cycling, walking or driving it is easy to appreciate the beauty of the coastline and the little harbours tucked away off the main road. The Giants Causeway is a World Heritage Site and the Visitor Centre is easily accessible. Browse through the shopping experience, investigate the interactive information storyboards before collecting an audio guide to aid your understanding of the site. Return to the Centre for light refreshments. Nearby is a narrow gauge railway for fun trips in the summer. Bushmills is home to the world's oldest licensed distillery (1608). Fascinating tours end in the bar for a complimentary drink. Enjoy lunch in the restaurant. This year 2013 in September saw a lively and interesting Whiskey and Salmon Festival giving the opportunity to sample good food and see and hear traditional dances and music. The Bush River flows through Bushmills and a walk along the banks will give opportunity for bird watching and fly fishing, subject to licence. There is plenty of opportunity to pick up that special gift for the friends back home. Visit Dunluce Castle on the Coast Road and take time to walk the long sandy beaches of White Rocks and White Park Bay. Drop into Balintoy Harbour for a cup of tea and a piece of cake and see where episodes of the Game of Thrones have been filmed. In May the North West 200 Motorcycle Road Race comes to the North Coast and in July the Race of Legends takes place within five miles of the Cottage..
Ballycastle, County Antrim
Ballycastle is a small friendly town with many individual family run businesses from butchers to boutiques and a variety of gastronomic experiences. Traditional music can be heard on Thursday nights and there is modern nightclub music too. The Museum in Castle Street has a wealth of archives and artefacts and there is an interesting and informative guided walk around the town to follow at your leisure. The recorded history of Ballycastle goes as far back as the third century A.D. In the past coal was mined, glass and soap were made in and around the town. There was also a salt works, and iron works and a brewery. Modern day Ballycastle has an attractive sea front with a long sandy beach and large children's play area next to the small marina. Its a place to linger and enjoy ice-cream or fresh fish and chips. There is a busy marina and Rathlin Ferry leaves from the harbour carrying visitors to Rathlin Island.
