Very disappointed on arrival. Damp smell amongst other smells. Main bedroom matterese very poor could feel springs coming through. Carpet stains, cooker hood full of grease lounge furniture really tatty and uncomfortable the lean to or conservatory felt very unsteady when you stood on the floor really smelly damp smell. The living room ceiling looks as if its been patched and is a disgrace outside fences falling down and in general the lodge would benefit from some tlc and general maintenance
Sorry for thr negative review but its our opinion as written in the visitors book.
We have stayed in the lodge twice now, and have thoroughly enjoyed both stays.
The accommodation is very comfortable, well equipped, and has a lovely open fire for when the evenings are cold. There is a fantastic selection of books to read, board games, and lots of DVD's to watch. The views from the lodge are lovely, open farmland, and some woodland. There are plenty of birds to spot if that is your thing, and the river is only a couple of minutes walk away.
The location couldn't be better, you are close to hundreds of attractions, and the amazing Galloway forest which is a walkers/cyclists paradise.
And of course you can fish here, which turned out to be a great thing, as I have taken it up as a hobby since our fist stay. So if you are an angler, walker, cyclist, nature enthusiast, or just want a peaceful relaxing holiday...this is just the place to stay!
The people are lovely and friendly, we feel very lucky to have found this place.
Amazing places to visit: Wild goat park, Deer park...where you can hand feed red deer! Wood of cree, Glentrool, Kirroughtree, Clatteringshaws, waterfalls, many castles and gardens, Mull of Galloway, Logan Fish Pond Marine Life Centre, fantastic coastline drives, wetland centres, activity centres, museums, distillery tours... Just so much to do, one week is never enough!
We had a fantastic stay here some time ago.
Wonderful fire lit for our arrival, beautiful location and exceptionally comfortable accommodation. Highly recommended.
