“Great Location”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved Heron Lodge. It was very clean and has everything supplied you need. The view at the back of the lodge was beautiful and the seating area very nice. If we had been a little earlier in the year I'm sure we would have made more use of the decking seating. The lodge is perfect for cycling or walking into Mabie Forest and for Loch Arthur Farm shop and restaurant which is just great. Our grandson (8) loved Mabie Farm Park with its great facilities for children of all ages. He also loved the games available in the lodge and his only problem was that the garden was not large enough for football and there was no swing park for him to play in on-site and maybe meet other children. There are so many things to do and see in the surrounding area we shall have to go back again to see the things we missed.

“A home away from home.”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a top class facility, fully equipped with all you might need to enjoy a break in the country. It's well located yet as rural as you could
wish for. Well laid out
and comfortably furnished. It was well above my expectations.

Thank you so much for your review of Heron Lodge and glad you and your family enjoyed your stay.

Heron Lodge is indeed a great base in which to explore the area of Dumfries and Galloway. There is so much to see and do around the surrounding countryside or take the coastal routes to find more great walks and beaches.

I do hope you return to stay again soon @ Heron Lodge.

“Fantastic lodge”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed at the lodge with my mum and two children for 4 nights. It's was everything we could have wished for. A very well equipped lodge, clean and well kept.
Really beautiful, quiet location.
My 3 year old loved the 'holiday house' and still says everyday he wants to go back.
I have visited Dumfries nearly every year since I was born, visiting family.....I will definitely be staying here again.
I would and have highly recommend

Thanks for a wonderful stay. 4 nights just wasn't long enough...be back soon
