Description from owner


If you are thinking of coming to this beautiful part of the world why not stay somewhere which is as equally beautiful! Perfectly situated to explore either the countryside or the coastline this bungalow is indeed a great place to stay.

With all the facilities that you could need to make your stay as welcome as possible the bungalow is perfect as a holiday home, but when the beach is so close this makes this holiday home ideal!

We take a special interest in this family run business which we have been operating since 2003. Personally cleaned and prepared for every guest to highest standard.

Spacious and well equipped with 3 bedrooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen / dining, utility, cloakroom, detached garage and fully enclosed gardens.

Unlimited and dedicated wireless fibre broadband internet connection. Hotel grade memory foam mattresses throughout - ultra comfortable bedding.

Welcome pack provided.

We look forward to welcoming you... :)

Getting around

A car is always the best way to travel around the North Coast. However Castlerock does benefit from a dedicated train station which will take you to many destinations throughout the area and beyond. The station is just a few minutes walk from the house. Regular bus service also available from the village.

We provide a welcome pack and meet guests on arrival or if you prefer a hands-off approach please mention this and we can leave a key. On departure you are asked to lock up and put keys in the key safe. Damage deposit (£75) refunded within 3 days of departure. We are always available by phone or email during your stay and have a key holder who lives in the village who can assist if required. Please see our website for house rules and cancellation policy.

Very Good

“Lovely cosy home from home”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2019

Lovely atmosphere and very nicely done throughout. Warm and a great stove in living room for winter months (melting on an evening if required!) Definitely got a homely feel and would happily stay again and would recommend to friends and others.

Owner's reply: Thanks for much Lisa for your lovely review. I do appreciate you taking the time and I look forward to welcoming you again in the future. With best wishes, Edward.

“Would not stay anywhere else.”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2018

Despite reviews and glossy photos one never knows what your own experience is going to be like with an unknown holiday let or hotel but the booking was so straight forward and the location suited our needs so we booked anyway. To say the accommodation is just what we needed sums it up perfectly. We were only 2 but I can see how this would comfortably suit 6 without getting under each others feet, it's a larger than expected property. We had everything we needed, everything was nice and clean, and everything worked as it should. There is a convenience store, rail station and the beach 0.5 miles away so an easy walk down wide pathways. The are is outstandingly lovely and we enjoyed long walks including a 10 mile ramble along the Causeway Coast from Carrick-a-Rede to the Giants Causeway, tricky but highly recommended. We hired a car and the sat nav took us straight to the property. The only addition I would make is a mirror on the bathroom windowsill for us who still shave the traditional way. There really is nothing negative so would not hesitate recommending a stay here. 10/10

Owner's reply: Thank you Simon and Jackie for your great review. I appreciate it very much. I will take your recommendation onboard and will ensure we get a mirror for the bathroom windowsill which I agree would be useful. We had one there in the past. Many thanks and hope to see you next time! Best regards, Edward.

Our 2nd visit and definitely not our last. Edward was very easy to work with and he ensured that all was in order for us to maximise our enjoyment for our stay including weekly emails of what was on in the near vicinity.

Owner's reply: Thank you Tony for a superb review. I really appreciate you taking the time. It was our pleasure to host you again and I look forward to seeing you soon. Always welcome. Kind regards, Edward.

“Castleshaw, Castlerock”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2018

Just back from our second stay here. It's an absolutely brilliant house, microwave, dishwasher, TV, dvd player & wifi. Well equipped kitchen with lots of plates,cups etc. The shower in bathroom is amazing. Yard is fully enclosed so was perfect for our four kids & Springer spaniel. Place was immaculately clean, spare blankets available, and lots of towels. Living room area has lots of seating & all very comfortable. The beds are really comfortable as well, normally find holiday accommodation beds can be hit and miss, but no issues in Castleshaw. Its in quiet residential area, but only two minute drive to Castlerock village. There were buckets & spades in the garage which our children made use of. The wood burning stove creates great heat in living room and provided a cosy ambience in winter weather. We were all really sad to leave. Thanks again Edward.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comprehensive review Heather - I hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Edward.

We have just returned from our second visit this year and can’t wait to return. Having enjoyed a week in Castleshaw at Easter, we booked again for Halloween week and were not disappointed! It is a spotless, comfortable home, the setting is idyllic and quiet. The back/sides of the house are fully enclosed so it’s perfectly safe for our 5 year old daughter and 2 year old Labrador! We visited all the local attractions, the new play trail at bishops gate, musseden temple, downhill demesne, giants causeway, benone, rope bridge etc and on our one rainy day took the train to Derry which only takes half an hour. This, along with morning and evening beach walks has confused my Fitbit which kept sending me badges and awards all week! The beds are sooo comfortable and the cot was perfect for our daughter’s teddies and dolls! Edward is a great host and we have felt so welcome both times, even the dog which on previous experience is not always the case. Checking availability for next trip right now!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely review AJ - looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Best wishes, Edward.

“Excellent accommodation, perfect location.”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2017

Modern 3 bedroom bungalow. Accommodation excellent. Castlerock is ideal location for exploring Donegal and North Derry/Antrim coast. The bungalow is spacious and comfortable. Importantly it is clean and the owner though I did not meet him was very helpful and welcoming. Would certainly consider a second visit.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2017

Really lovely cottage. Clean and comfortable. Nice to get away from the hussle and bustle of Portstewart and Portrush. Quiet area and a friendly village. World class beach (with lifeguards in attendance). Facilities in the house are excellent- there was even some bicycles in the garage! The welcome pack of bread and milk was very welcome. The beds are really comfortable and the large bathroom and power shower were excellent. Will definitely stay there again. Would highly recommend.
