Enjoy a luxurious romantic break in this superb detached lodge. Relax in the comfortable surroundings, unwind in the fantastic private hot tub and admire the spectacular uninterrupted sea views.

The perfect accommodation option for a romantic escape for two people - and their two canine companions - this bespoke lodge in a complex of properties on working farm offers breathtaking views of Rascarrel Bay. Your pups will adore having the freedom to explore the enclosed garden/patio as you and your other half soak up the incredible coastal views from the hot tub.

Climb a small flight of stairs, step inside this sleek and stylish detached lodge, and you’ll find yourself in a spacious hallway – the ideal place to store all of your dog-walking essentials. Move through to the spacious open-plan living room/kitchen/diner, and you’ll find that the floor to ceiling windows make the very most of the coastal views. Rustle up a romantic meal for two in the bespoke kitchen, where the soft mood-lighting will set the scene for the night ahead. If it’s a warm evening, step outside onto the patio area and dine alfresco while your pups enjoy the sniffing about the enclosed space. After dinner, take a dip in the private hot tub, enjoy a glass of wine on the decked area, or head to the living room, where you can curl up in front of a rom-com. When the day is done, there’s a fabulous king-size bedroom to retire to.

Surround your pups in the unspoiled natural beauty of Galloway Forest Park (25 miles). Featuring some glorious trails along glens, hills and lochs, tails will surely be wagging. Alternatively, head to the organic farm at Cream O’Galloway (19.5 miles), where you can sample a spectacular ice cream sundae. Your pups are welcome in the picnic areas, nature trails, garden and crazy golf course. There’s also an enclosed area where you can let them run off-leash.

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

Such a relaxing and peaceful week at Platinum 1. Our little doggie was recovering from a stroke and it's just what the vet ordered. The layout of the property maximises the views from all angles and the cleanliness was superb. Everything we needed was there. The views are to die for. I didnt pick a book up with those views distracting me. Thank youRead more Pamela Wilson Hide

Very spacious luxury accommodation in an idyllic location, very private, with only the noise of the sea and the birds. Good walks nearby. Ideally situated for Balcary Bay, Galloway Forest Park and nearby Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. Too good to use as just a base though; we loved being at home in our Platinum lodge.

We had a lovely stay in Rascarrel Bay in the week before Christmas, soaking up the sea views and having some bracing walks.
