About Lorna Nixon - Owner/Property Manager

I am the owner/manager of Carraig Lodge Caslerock, which allows me the opportunity to meet and welcome guests into this holiday home, to personally liaise with them prior to their holiday and to identify their needs.

Lorna Nixon - Owner/Property Manager purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Lorna Nixon - Owner/Property Manager chose Castlerock

Carraig Lodge was originally built as a family home and was finished internally and externally for this purpose, therefore, I felt that this property would be a true home from home for guests. Year on year we continue to update and improve the provision for guests.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is located within a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty, just of the main access road into the village of Castlerock and is within easy walking distance of the village shops, bus stop and railway station and other amenities, including the Championship Golf Course and sandy beach. There are many delightful walks in the area and buildings of historical interest. The area offers a relaxed seaside atmosphere.

Our first time to Northern Ireland—Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The very well-appointed Carraig Lodge was in a safe, quiet and attractive neighborhood. Comfortable beds, large bedrooms, sparkling bathrooms, and the kitchen was well equipped and had many little extras. The owners, Lorna and Bob, were so attentive and helpful with information and local happenings...we always had something new to see and do along with the plentiful natural and historic sites and scenes in the area. What made it even more special was the convenient location...a train station within a few blocks’ walk to get to Londonderry or Belfast, or anywhere in between. Basic needs were in the village of Castlerock...small grocery store, a bakery, butcher, and coffee shop. We came to Northern Ireland for outstanding beauty, and here we found it..the beaches are incredible! There were virtually no crowds anywhere we went. Various beautiful walks from the house to historical sites nearby, cliffs overlooking the ocean, and nice forest paths. The neighbors were warm and friendly. Coleraine, the larger city about 6 miles away, has everything you could possibly need in terms of shopping. The home is exactly as it was portrayed in the pictures...very clean, large, and well-maintained. We hope to return and wholeheartedly recommend this home.
