Property code: RASC4

Luxurious accommodation all on one level offering modern living with king-size bedroom and lounge/kitchen/diner. 4 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 and restaurant 2 miles.

 

Picture yourself soaking in a bubbling hot tub with your partner, as your pet dozes contentedly nearby. In front of you, there’s a huge expanse of water where dolphins frolic in the private bay. It sounds like a dream – but at this romantic retreat in Dumfries and Galloway, this is all possible. You’ll be on a picturesque working farm with plenty to do both in and off the grounds, be it taking country walks, exploring traditional Scottish villages or feasting on delicious pub roasts. This property is part of a complex of four lodgings – perfect if you’re holidaying with other couples.

This luxury accommodation has an alpine feel, with a wooden exterior and single-storey formation. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, as well as the bedroom, has large windows offering lovely views over Rascarrel Bay – the lodge’s elevated position makes these spectacular. Your pet will love warming her fur by the feature fire as you prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen. On the enclosed balcony, share a bottle of crisp bubbly that’s been cooled in the wine chiller – ideal if you’re celebrating an anniversary or other special occasion. Extra touches such as FreeviewTV, iPod dock and a tumble dryer have been added to make your stay more comfortable.

When it’s time to leave the bliss of your temporary home, take the dog for a run along the shore – watch her run along happily with her ears flapping in the breeze as you absorb tranquil views across the bay. In the pretty, traditional village of Auchencairn (2 miles) you’ll find shops among the whitewashed stone cottages. In Palpackie (6.5 miles) there’s a pub where dogs are welcome in the bar and bistro.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The lodge is located in a stunning position, elevated above the rugged coast alongside Rascarrel Bay. The estate on which the lodge sits is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the breathtaking and varied landscape of Dumfries and Galloway. Take a hike around the estate, embark on an adventurous cycle ride, or simply stroll down to the sea's edge to peer across these mysterious waters.

There are plenty of activities to pursue beyond the estate, too. Whisky tasting, golfing, and sea and loch fishing are just some of the pursuits you can enjoy. For amenities and even a restaurant meal out, head to the quaint village of Auchencairn, 3 miles away.

Head inland towards the woods of the Galloway Forest Park and make a pit-stop for some hearty scran on the way at Castle Douglas. The town is full of attractions, boutiques, historical sites, all in stunning surroundings. The River Dee floats by, with an island in one of its bends upon which stands the imposing 30-metre tower of Castle Threave. This mighty fortress dates back to 1369, when Archibald the Grim cast his shadow, and is now home to peregrine falcons.

These holiday homes are so well kitted out - the kitchen had everything g I could think of, so it was like a home away from home. The view was amazing, and I loved spending our evenings in the hot tub looking across the water.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Rascarrel Bay and this time was just as lovely as the last. The cabin is in a beautiful and peaceful location. It is clean and well equipped and the owners went the extra mile with fresh flowers, chocolates, dog treats and wine. We had a fabulous holiday and will definitely be back.
