This superb stylish lodge with private hot tub and spectacular secluded bay coastal views makes a fantastic base for a romantic getaway and to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Set in a stylish complex of properties on a working farm on Rascarrel Bay, this contemporary lodge sleeps two people in one bedroom and welcomes two canine companions. Offering incredible views of the Solway Firth, it’s the ideal romantic bolthole if you want to discover the wild beauty of Dumfries and Galloway with your pups in tow. Secluded and sophisticated, you’ll enjoy taking a seat with your loved one in the hot tub as your dogs run free in the enclosed garden/patio.

A small flight of stairs leads you to this stylish lodge. Step inside and store all of your dog-walking essentials in the hallway. Further on you’ll be met by breathtaking coastal views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the spacious open-plan living room/kitchen/diner. Cook a romantic dinner for two in the chic kitchen area and soak up sea views while you dine in the intimate dining area. Alternatively, step outside onto the enclosed garden/patio and dine alfresco. After dinner, watch your dogs explore the enclosed garden/patio while you take a well-earned dip in the private hot tub, or pull up a chair in the fully-covered deck area, where the twinkling mood-lighting in the ceiling will set a romantic mood. When the day is done, cuddle up in front of your favourite movie in the living area or retire to the stylish king-size bedroom.

Your dogs will love exploring the pretty harbour town of Kirkcudbright (12 miles). In the streets behind the harbour, you’ll find a flourishing collection of artist studios, as well as a nice selection of dog-friendly bars and cafes. Alternatively, head to dog-friendly Rockcliffe Beach (16 miles). From there you can take a lovely 3-mile coastal walk to the pretty coastal village of Kippford, where you’ll find a couple of dog-friendly pubs.

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

This was our second visit to Rascarrel. Fantastic lodge in an amazing location with the best views. We were lucky to have beautiful weather during our stay too. Only half an hour drive from both Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. The rabbits on the hillside at the rear of the lodges are delightful to watch. Would definitely return again.

My husband and I and our dog spent a week at Rascarrel bay in Platinum 2 lodge. It was the most tranquil holiday we've had and we do holiday often. The location is just perfect.

We have stayed in cottages and lodges all over Scotland but this was by far the best one. there was everything we needed and more and for the first week except for a walk we did not move from the hot-tub and the lodge. I have just retired and it made a fantastic end to my working life. We will certainly be back.
