The Ghost Lodge is ideal as a weekend getaway, perfect for couples, families and larger groups.

You have exclusive use of the whole lodge and can choose from 5 bedrooms for your stay. There is also an additional outside cabin, bringing the total capacity to 15 people.

This is a private & peaceful, well appointed, beautifully restored historic villa in the heard of Granity, with its own beach access just metres away at the end of the garden.


The space
The Ghost Lodge began its life as a butchery, built in the 1880's, and has been painstakingly rebuilt with care taken to retain its original charm whilst modernising every aspect of this beautiful six bedroom building. It's warm and cosy, insulated and carpeted throughout with a huge log fire providing heat upstairs and downstairs. It's perfect for large groups, families or individuals.

Please check out my other listings for alternative rooming options.
During peak season I prefer group/family bookings for the lodge; however, please contact me if you would like to book a single room as this may still be available, and I'm happy to accommodate if I can.

Off street parking available, beach access at the end of the garden, free use of wetsuits, boogie boards and surf boards during your stay.

Downstairs you have the use of a fully equipped galley kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker. The dining area is off the kitchen and leads into a large living room with log fire, Freeview TV, stereo and DVD player. Two sets of french doors lead to an outside deck where you can relax after a long day of adventuring or walk to the beach to watch spectacular West Coast sunsets. Also downstairs are four double bedrooms, all with quality super-comfort queen size beds. The bathroom has double basins, shower and a separate toilet.

Upstairs is another large living room with a pool table, Freeview TV, stereo and DVD player. French doors lead to a sunny deck with sea views and a spa pool to luxuriate in under the stars. With plenty of afternoon sun this is a popular place to relax and watch the ever changing ocean and magnificent sunsets. There are two very large bedrooms with quality super-comfort queen size beds.

Rooms are meticulously presented with superior quality beds and 500+ thread Egyptian cotton linen for your maximum comfort. Hand soap and towels are provided in the shared bathroom facilities. All rooms can be locked for your privacy.
