“Magical place for a relaxing break.”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2019

Our stay at the lodge was wonderful. Much larger than what we expected. We had daily visits from red squirrels on out decking. A bonus was the peaceand quiet sitting outside, also distant views through the trees to the sea and the cumbrian hills. The coast is charming, we visited local seaside villages and had lovely walks, just pottering about on the beach, only 15mins walk away. A great location, well equiped lodge. Highly reccomended. Thanks.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review, hope to see you again soon.

An amazing location in stunning countryside with real live animals visiting for food daily. The lodge was superbly equipped with everything we needed to make our stay stress free, loads to do in this beautiful area with great walks along the cliff and gorgeous beaches. Would certainly recommend and we would like a return visit next year.

We had a lovely week in this wooden chalet located amidst farmland and golf course within easy reach of the beach at Sandyhills. The chalet is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. 1 week in this beautiful part of the world is never enough with so much to see and do in the region. My boys were thrilled when a pair of badgers visited every night at dusk to gobble up the chopped apples we left for them. We thoroughly recommend this holiday house!

Super, spacious, clean, warm, lodge. Made our week just perfect. Perfect location to explore the area, and lots of wildlife and walks close by. Breakfast on the decked veranda was a perfect start to the day. Just fab.

“Lovely comfy warm lodge”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2017

The lodge is well equipped and warm and comfortable. Wildlife literally on your doorstep! Very nice beaches and small villages around to visit and a fantastic beach at Sandyhills 10 minutes walk from the lodge. Our only negative would be the mobile signal, neither myself or my partner could get any reception in the lodge or in Colvend itself, whilst this for many would be a plus it did bring up the question of what if one of us had an accident whilst there on our own?!? That being said it is a lovely place and we had a very nice holiday thanks

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comments and we are glad to hear you had a nice holiday. We'll do our best to make guests aware of the poor mobile phone signal. While rural Dumfries and Galloway has much to offer, unfortunately it generally lags behind on this count. Brian and Debbie
