Bath Lodge

Ballycastle, Co. Antrim

A quaint old house perched above golden sands, with plenty of space for family and friends. Wild garden to sit in and the town an easy walk


10 beds


7 bedrooms


Sleeps 15


Perched at the end of half a mile of golden sand – waves lapping nearby, seabirds overhead… and the heart-stopping view to Rathlin Island and Scotland is all yours. Bath Lodge is a characterful, well-loved family house with its ramble of level changes, corners, crannies and a comfortable mix of furniture. Nothing is too posh: bring the children, their friends and all the gear without fear for the ancient floorboards or colourful rugs. The grown-ups will grab the deep-seated, view-filled sitting room; the big downstairs family room doubles as a fine playroom, the lawns are great for games, the walled garden for sheltered peace. Originally five 18th-century miners’ cottages whose tiny attics were thrown up to create lofty ceilings, it has old bones and the essential modernities. In the large kitchen/breakfast room the grand Aga is centre stage, with a separate scullery for washing up. Bedrooms have the same old-style comfort of mixed antiques and good beds. Rabbits crop the clifftop of the wild garden in peace, yet the town is just behind you. Brilliant for a family holiday.

I cant stress how helpful and friendly Mary was please thank her on our behalf! At some stage I'll email you with the walking material I put together for the trip - 5 of my group were English and they were all raving about the location and the house. As a wee tip - Siobhan Scally in the Tourist Information Office at the sea front at the Harbour is a font of knowledge and an Ambassador for the locale and really friendly!


Fabulous laid back rambling house in a brilliant location overlooking the beach Really quiet and private Really well equipped from washers to kitchen equipment to fishing nets buckets spades Wonderful space and gardens Brilliant for a family holiday We hope to return Maybe another sofa would be good otherwise perfect Thanks Sarah Forget the polished Giants Causeway ..explore the Glens and quaint coves and castles Very friendly people in Ballycastle
