Description from owner


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 rural location, beside a National Cycle Route. Bicycles may be hired locally. It is the ideal hideaway for those seeking to step aside from the hurly-burly of 21st century living whilst being within easy reach of the scenic Causeway Coast and Glens, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 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 Tourist Board Four Star standard. The Lodge is designed to sleep a couple with a sofa bed ideally catering for 1 adult or two children 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. We are a non smoking facility and we cannot accept pets.

Very Good

“Everything we wanted and more!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2018

We had a great holiday based at The Lodge and have no hesitation in highly recommending it as a base to explore this beautiful area. We were greeted with a generous tea of scones, cakes and fruit. Ann and Don were so welcoming and had thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and at home. If you want peace and quiet, comfort and convenience this is the place to be. The daily sightings of red squirrels were an added bonus. Thank you both for a great stay!

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to meet you. We are so glad The Lodge fulfilled your hopes. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Weekend stay”

Reviewed 14 May 2018

Fantastic accommodation for exploring the causeway coast. Don and I were so helpful and friendly. We were greeted with scones and buns on arrival. The lodge was spotless and beautifully furnished. If you're looking for somewhere which is handy to everything that Ballycastle has to offer or you simply need peace and quiet - this is it. We got lots of photographs of the red squirrels in the back garden. I would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation. First class.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a great review.. We are so pleased you enjoyed our hospitality and what The Lodge has to offer. Thank you for your feedback.

“Balm For The Soul”

Reviewed 7 May 2018

The welcome we received from Don and Anne was second to none. Afternoon tea was laid out with scones and cakes and classic fm was playing unobtrusively in the background. Just a precursor to the relaxing environment that we would be lucky enough to enjoy during our week away. There were plenty of information leaflets and books and a helpful folder was provided detailing usage of appliances, nearest hospital, dentists etc. The lodge itself was well equipped with a high standard of fixture and fittings. Everywhere was immaculately clean and the whole place had a well cared for and homely feel to it. We were entranced by the red squirrels and their daily antics which could be clearly seen from the kitchen window. A rotary line and sufficient pegs were supplied ( we had such lovely weather I took advantage to do a couple of loads) there was also a summer house that we were able to avail ourselves should we wish but unfortunately we never had the time as we were out each day walking and taking in the many beautiful views in and around the Antrim coast. We would highly recommend the lodge and Don and Anne were the perfect hosts. Thank you.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a wonderful review. We love that our guests enjoy The Lodge and the Causeway Coast and the surrounding area. So glad the squirrels were so much in evidence and that the puffins on Rathlin and the seals were there to be observed too. Thank you for leaving a recommendation for The Gobbins Love that you can share a good experience with other guests. Welcome back anytime.
