We stayed at the Whitecairn in a Highland 3 Lodge during the October half term and would definitely recommend it.
The lodge was great: clean with quality furniture and fittings and very warm and cosy. The living area is open plan and quite compact but it has everything you need from dishwasher to full size fridge-freezer and we liked the way it included lots of dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, and even washing liquid for the washer in the separate utility room. In fact it had many extras that some lodges don’t include – washing up liquid, tea towels (all the smaller utility items you usually need to remember to pack). The bedrooms are spacious (there is no storage in the third bedroom however there are fitted robes and a walk-in within the master, as well as a second TV which is handy).
The park itself is very quiet with just a reception, children's’ park and laundrette (handy for the dryers: £1:00 for half an hour) and is ideal for a peaceful break away from it all, set in beautiful countryside. Just take plenty of DVDs and things for the children/teenagers to do as there really is nothing to do but I guess ideal for just a week or short stay.
There’s a shop and a couple of pubs a short drive away but your nearest town is Stranraer about 10 miles away which is a lovely little town with a few shops and restaurants and the people are friendly. There is a small Tesco and a decent size Morrisons.
We also visited the Creetown Gem Rock Museum in Creetown which was an interesting museum for us and the children and well worth a visit if you're in the area.
