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.

Beautiful place, cottage was exceptionally clean. Fantastic views of bay from windows and balcony.lovely in the hot tub Nice area, but not much within walking distance. Balcary hotel is about hours walk away,around 2 or 3 miles, two different routes. Easy walking shorter route or over cliffs, which is not for the faint hearted. Also can walk to vilRead morelage shop/ tea room. But again around a couple of miles. Very quiet and relaxing, loved it. Hide

If you like a secluded and peaceful break with all mod cons this is ideal. The hot tub is bliss,as you can relax with a drink and watch the waves roll onto the shore. Excellent walks in the area for us humans and doggie companions. Castle Douglas is only a 20 minute drive for good shopping.

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. Ok, so it's pretty far from everything, but if you want to escape for a bit, thrse cottages are perfect Don't expect any phRead moreone signal though - thank goodness for WiFi! Hide

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.
