The Dumfries and Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway South West Scotland there is much to see and do in this wonderful part of south west Scotland. Nearby there are thick forests, heathery hills, sandy beaches, cliffs with secret caves and lots of country walks and cycle routes, including the famous 7 Stanes mountain biking route in Dalbeattie forest. Visitors can pop down to the many rivers and spend a gentle day fishing. There's much to catch in and around Dumfries such as Carp, Perch, Rudd, Tench, Conger, Cod, Dogfish and much more. Here there truly is something for everyone, whether you are looking for a relaxing country break or are an outdoor sports enthusiast.

"Ignore the Highlands and Islands for once and explore Dumfries and Galloway in the south west instead. The weather is better, the Solway coast has lots of secluded bays, there are dozens of castles such as Threave and Caerlaverock, and as the region has few main roads, it is much quieter."

"Lovely stay spoiled by deposit being unjustifiable retained!!!..."

We had a wonderful stay here, it is the best equipped chalet we have stayed in and we had hoped to return however.....our experience ruined today by argument about retention of the £50 damage de… More

Glad you enjoyed your stay @ Heron Lodge........Pride is always taken in presenting our well equipped self catering property in immaculate order.

A small Security Bond is taken from clients to ensure they are respectful of my holiday property during their stay. Since renting out my holiday home for the last 7 years I have only had two occasions when I have not refunded a clients Security Bond- this being one of them.

These clients left the double bed linen, with human excrement on them, and Exited without notification to myself of the incident. This caused my cleaner much upset and on washing the bed linen, and a re wash....... the staining was still found prominent to see. Therefore, the clients were fully informed that their Security Bond held, would not be refunded and replacements have been purchased for future use by clients.

This would be considered normal practice by any holiday home rental owner. Obviously in all other occasions of rental including those clients were minor accidental damaged has been cause have been fully refunded promptly without further question.

Thankfully, the above incident is rare, and the majority of clients that rent my holiday home are very respectful and always leave the property as found on exit without any such incident which I am eternally Thankful for.

"Gorgeous views with plenty to do"

The lodge was in a beautiful peaceful setting secluded just minutes from Mabie Forest. The views were lovely and we even saw a woodpecker in the garden. There are plenty of places to see, we ventured out to the coast, went for walks in the forest, drove out to a castle and more. Would definitely return here.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Heron Lodge and hope to welcome you back for another stay in the near futre...........
