Description

Criffel Lodge is a modern self catering chalet for up to 6 and is situated is a small group of 10 chalets in mature oak woodland next to Colvend golf course. Great for families as Sandyhills beach is 10 minute walk away, and cliff top coastal walks take you round to Rockcliffe (get the bus back and leave the car at the lodge!). It's a haven for wild life and from the lodge its common to see red squirrels, badgers, deer, rabbits and a large range of woodland and coastal birds. It's a quiet location and suitable for guests trying to get away from it all (it's not a holiday village!).A mile or so down the road is Mersehead RSPB for wintering Barnacle Geese and ducks, and in the summer nesting lapwings, tree sparrows (there are not many of these about!) and various birds of prey including Peregrine Falcon, owls and harriers.The lodge is double gla\zed and heated by full oil fired central heating to keep you comfortable both summer and winter. There is ample room for 6

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Criffel Lodge, Sandyhills is well placed for numerous activities in the region. From walking to the beach, golf and bird watching - all straight from the lodge to all the other attractions of the region.
Why not drive round to New Abbey to see Sweetheart Abbey ruins then call in to the tea shop next door. Mabie forest offers walks and cycle rides as well as Mabie Park Farm for a family day out.

Castle Douglas and the surrounding area offers many active and relaxing alternatives from tea shops and restaurants to Threave Gardens, Threave Castle and an Osprey viewing platform. Loch Ken and the Galloway Forest offers stunning countryside and hosts the Red Kite trail and feeding station, water sports and angling.


Sandyhills

Sandyhills is a small settlement on the Colvend coast and boasts the best beach in the area. Stretching out to the west lies stunning coastlilne of cliffs and inlets visible from the coastal path leading round to Rockcliffe. To the east a mixture of cliffs and at Mersehead RSPB reserve there are flat wetlands with managed lagoons for the wildfowl and a long stretch of sand dunes.
Inland lies forested hills - a mixture of broad leaf and conifer.

Colvend golf course is on the edge of the bay and Dalbeattie 7-Stanes mountain biking trails stretch through the woods almost as far as Sandyhills.

“Perfect family rural escape.”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2017

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!

“what a week”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2017

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
