“Perfect base to view the natural beauty of Antrim”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fabulous house. Roomy and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable and comfortable family holiday. There is the added bonus of a garden room which my son really liked to have some space. There was a coffee maker and a fresh bag of coffee which was lovely. Don't worry if you forget anything because Heather and George have thought of everything! There was even a bottle of wine and some homemade biscuits on arrival, neither of which lasted long! The house is ideally situated 30-45minutes drive from most places of interest. George offered some good advice on visiting the Giants Causeway and recommended visiting Ballintoy which was stunning! Lovely people, lovely holiday.

I had the house on my own for 3 weeks in February 2016 and it was wonderful. The house is very cosy and you feel at home immediately. It is furnished with everything you need and it is even equipped with electronic devices like dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer,... The landlords Heather and George make you feel comfortable and are happy to provide you with tips for travelling and shopping opportunities. Altogether, this place is highly recommended!

Parkhead Lodge was the perfect place for our stay. The owners Heather and George were very friendly and met us at the door with the kettle on and a lemon cake on the table. The house was very clean and everything we needed was readily available. I would highly recommend Parkhead Lodge to anyone and if we ever get back to Northern Ireland we will be definitely look to stay here again!

Myself and 3 others came to Ballymena for my sons wedding. The owners Heather and George met us on arrival.They are two of the nicest people I have met. The lodge is amazing! It really is home from home! It's comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremly well decorated throughout. It is fully equipped. There's a Tesco's approximately a 2 minute walk away and Ballymena town is only a little further along the road! Parkhead Lodge Is an exceptional place we will definitely stay again!

“Perfect - highly recommended”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in Parkhead Lodge over the Christmas week and could not have wished for better accommodation. The property is situated at the end of a quiet cul de sac with ample private parking and overlooking the park. There is a small Tesco supermarket nearby and the park entrance is only a short walk. On entering the property we were struck by the warmth and homely feeling. The property is spacious, very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The attention to detail ensured that we had everything we could possibly need for our stay, including excellent internet access. Home made scones, preserve and cookies had been provided by the owners for us on our arrival, in addition to the basics such as milk and butter. Christmas decorations had also been put up, including lights on two trees in the garden and star lights in the kitchen window, (all on timers) which welcomed us home in the evenings. It was a true home from home, a place that we would love to return to and certainly a property that we would highly recommend.

“Twas a Home from Home Experience”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were absolutely delighted with the high standard of our accommodation. It was immaculately clean, well equipped and extremely comfortable. We could not have found a nicer house in which to stay. It really felt like our home. The owners, Heather and George, were very helpful and were a delight to do business with.
