The Lodge provides a perfect base for exploring the Antrim coast. Being ten minutes outside Ballycastle it is close enough to take advantage of the excellent dining and shopping offered there but far away enough to provide an escape from the tourist hustle. The accommodation on offer is first rate with top quality furniture, bedding and homeware provided. There is a lovely garden and sunhouse which can be used to enjoy the peace and calm as well as providing a vantage point to watch the red squirrels. Anne & Don are excellent hosts with a warm greeting (including cream cakes and home baked scones) and extensive local knowledge to make the most of your stay.
Stayed in this beautiful cottage in Ballycastle at the end of September 2017.
Was warmly greeted by our hosts who had a wealth of knowledge of the area and attractions with maps, leaflets, information, timetables etc.
The Lodge is situated in a very quiet part of the country. Perfectly compact and well equipped with everything you can think of. A lovely afternoon tea awaited us upon our arrival with further tea/coffee and milk provided. The Lodge is very quaint and the gardens are lovely. Sadly we did not catch sight of any red squirrels which are well known to frequent the area. The bathroom is huge with bath and shower, the bedroom was cosy with a vey comfy bed. Hairdryer, dishwasher, washing machine all provided. Perfect base to explore the amazing coastline. Nearest shops/pub are a drive away but we was so exhausted from al the sightseeing we did not bother to much with the local amenities.
A busy but amazing week and it was nice to feel at the end of the day we were returning "home" to our lovely little cosy cottage.
Would highly recommend The Lodge and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely owners. Will definitely be returning!
We had a lovely stay here. Very warm welcome from Ann and Don with much appreciated cream tea on arrival. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We couldn't have asked for a better location -it was the perfect base for exploring the area: everything we wanted to see was within easy driving distance. An added bonus was the beautiful garden with red squirrels visiting every day of our stay. Highly recommended. We will be back!
Brilliant wee cottage to stay in! Very peaceful and has everything you need. Owners were very welcoming!
Well appointed cottage - all you need and more! We didn't get to use the summer-house in the lovely garden but did see plenty of squirrels and birds in this peaceful location.
Ann and Don made us feel really welcome and gave us plenty of ideas and information about attractions in the area.
A lovely comfortable place to stay for a couple. Owners very helpful, and we lacked nothing. Unexpected bonus is three squirrel feeders in the garden and we have had the joy of seeing RED SQUIRRELS.
