Property code: RASC4

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

 

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 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 a shop among the whitewashed stone cottages. In Palpackie (6.5 miles) there’s a pub where dogs are welcome in the bar and bistro.

Absolutely fabulous location, beautiful lodge and so peaceful. Very keen to revisit. Only thing needed to improve is an outside water tap -dogs very welcome here but sometimes need to wash paws/belly. Everything else thought of including welcome pack for our dog. Loved every moment of our stay.

The most relaxing and cozy lodge we have stayed in with incredible views. The area is ideal for when you want to get away from everything and relax. Magnus our Labrador had the best holiday with amazing walks everyday. Would highly recommend when you want to get away from the daily grind and just spend time together.
