This accomodation is a bit of a mixture - not a true B&B. The hostess Lorna, was very friendly and helpful and the accomodation spotless and really good. Cooked breakfast is not provided but the food to make yourself a cold breakfast is - very useful for us as we were staying there to watch the NW200 motorbike races. The... More

As all the other reviews have stipulated an absolute gem, we stayed 3 nights in this beautiful and peaceful place. As a family it was lovely to have so much space that normally you would not have especially when kids go to bed. Thank you again lorna for your lovely hospitality...looking forward to coming again.

My husband and I stayed at Badger Lodge in September for 2 nights. We wish we could have stayed longer! The Lodge is a unique B&B experience because it is more than a room with a bathroom. It actually is a spacious, well-decorated wing of a family home. You have a separate entrance, lounge, conservatory (where breakfast is served), bedroom,... More

A wee gem. Lovely tranquil spot a few miles out from Castlerock with wonderful views. You have the whole wing to yourself so it feels more like a holiday let than a B&B but with the advantage of wonderful breakfasts (extra points for the lovely creamy porridge). Lorna could not have been more friendly and helpful. Thanks!!!!

We took my elderly mum to revisit the coast where she had spent her childood holidays. Badgers Lodge was just the petfect spot! It was great to have our own key to come and go as we pleased. The accomodation was very tastefully decorated, bright and friendly. Lorna made us feel so welcome and was very generous with her hospitality.... More
