Romance is sure to bloom in this chic retreat for two sitting on a working farm overlooking Rascarrel Bay. Welcoming two faithful friends, this contemporary lodge set in a stylish complex of properties is the perfect place for couples who want to enjoy some quality time together with their pups by their side. Enjoy long coastal walks with your dogs by day, and snuggle up with your other half in the hot tub in the evening.

Step inside this single-storey, detached lodge and you’ll find a spacious living room/kitchen/diner with floor-to-ceiling windows that make the very best of the breathtaking sea views. Cook a romantic meal for two in the contemporary kitchen area and dine in the intimate dining area, or make your way out to the balcony and dine alfresco as your pups run free in the enclosed space. You may even spot dolphins while you’re eating. After dinner, relax on the patio with a glass of wine, take a dip in the private hot tub, or head into the living area to sink into the sofa and watch your favourite movie. When the day is done, retire to the stylish king-size bedroom. In the morning you’ll wake up to incredible sea views.

Delve deep into the unspoiled natural beauty of Galloway Forest Park (25.5 miles), where you’ll discover some wonderful trails along picturesque glens, hills, lochs and forests. There are dog-friendly cafes in Clatteringshaws and Kirroughtree in park too. Or take your pups along on a romantic stroll around the grounds of the suitably-named Sweetheart Abbey (22 miles). This pretty abbey is still inspiring awe 700 years after it was built.
