"Best place to stay in Dumfries and Galloway"

We came here for a friends birthday and can honestly say it is one of the best places any of us had ever stayed. The cottage is beautiful, with plenty of room for a large party (12 of us). Surrounding area is fantastic and we had a brilliant BBQ down at the hut by the lodge. Rosemary could not have been nicer or more accommodating to us while we were there which makes all the difference to how nice a break you have. If you get the chance then please book this lodge. We will definitely be back.

"A real gem of a place in a wonderful location."

Excellent quality accommodation, with bags character and space for outdoor kit. Fantastic location with lovely coastline and short walk across farm land to the beach for driftwood fires watching the sun go down. A BBQ in the Finnish huts make for a great entertainment too. The Rinns offer beautiful coastal walking with stunning sea views across to Ireland and the Isle of Man. There's also excellent cycling with the quietest country lanes you'll ever come across and the trail centres about Newton Stewart under an hour away. We were a party of three families each with two children 5-9 years. Top Marks all round.
