Property code: RASC3

Single-storey attractive accommodation with 1 king-size bedroom and well-equipped open-plan living area. 9 luxury and attractive bespoke detached lodges set privately around a large secluded bay, each with an enclosed balcony with a private hot tub and seating. Located in an elevated position with stunning sea views, a stone’s throw from the seashore. Post Office, shop 2 miles.

 

Set in a stylish complex of nine bespoke detached lodges on a working farm on Rascarrel Bay, this luxurious log cabin offers peaceful seclusion just a stone’s throw from the seashore. Sleeping two people in one bedroom and welcoming two faithful friends, it’s the perfect romantic retreat for couples who want to explore the wild beauty of Dumfries and Galloway with their canine companions by their side. You’ll just love taking a dip in the hot tub with your loved one as your pups happily potter around the enclosed balcony.

After a wonderful day of dog walking along the shores of Rascarrel Bay, come home to this lovely single-storey lodge and cook a romantic meal for two in the chic kitchen area. Eat together in the dining area before heading outside to soak up the incredible coastal views from the private hot tub. Afterwards, head inside and – if you can manage to take your eyes off the incredible views of the bay – watch a film while your pups sleep in front of the feature fire. At the end of the day there’s a beautiful king-size bedroom to retire to. When you wake up, check out the view from the bedroom’s patio doors, which lead straight out onto the enclosed balcony.

Take your pups for a pretty stroll around the harbour town of Kirkcudbright (12 miles). Wander through the streets behind the harbour and you’ll discover the studios of the village’s thriving colony of artists. Alternatively, enjoy a game of crazy golf and an ice cream sundae to remember at the organic farm at Cream O’Galloway (19.5 miles). Your pups are also welcome in the picnic areas, nature trails, gardens and enclosed dog walk area, where you can let them off-leash for a run.
