For the traveller to find themselves at Cairn Bay Lodge would best be described as occupying a small piece of heaven. I had the very good fortune to stay there for two wonderful days in June, a truly civilised experience.
The Lodge, which is well and accurately described on it’s website, is situated in lovely grounds on one of Bangor’s bays. It is a wonderful and eclectic mixture of antiques and art with a warm and generous ambience that speaks to the love of family ownership. To start a morning in it’s oak panelled dining room with the exceptional gourmet breakfast, simply ambrosia and reward enough for any day.
Added to this is a delightful attention to detail for one’s comfort and needs. From the well appointed drawing room, stocked with books and literature about Bangor’s rich local history and the beautiful surrounding countryside; to the magic of a small cupboard that can supply everything from a DVD movie, for that quiet evening, or a toothbrush forgotten in the haste of packing. Also notable; treasures can be found in the gift shop and if yet further pampering is required, spa services are available.
My only regret; not having planned to stay there longer as hosts Chris and Jenny have graciously restored the true meaning of the word hospitality.
