Enjoy a luxurious romantic break in this superb stylish and spacious detached lodge. Relax in the sauna or unwind in the fantastic private hot tub and admire the spectacular uninterrupted sea views.
This spectacular lodge offers pure escapism for you, a loved one and two canine chums. The property is perfectly positioned on the private Rascarrel Bay, with truly magnificent views out across the water and over 200 miles of beautiful coastline at your paws and fingertips. From a wild and windy tromp around Auchencairn Bay (2.5 miles), to a stroll around the elegant estate at Threave (10 miles), you won’t be short of places to explore with the pups.
A small flight of steps leads to the luxurious property. Kick off your muddy boots and hang up the dog leads in the spacious hallway, before entering the spectacular open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its floor-to-ceiling windows to really make the most of the exceptional sea views. After a long walk with the pups, unwind in the lounge area with a good book or listen to some music on the Sonos Bluetooth speaker whilst watching the waves rolling in. Rustle up a romantic meal for two in the stylish kitchen and on a warm evening throw open the French doors, so your four-pawed pals can potter in and out to the enclosed outdoor area. Afterwards, pour yourself a glass of wine and slip into the bubbling hot tub or luxuriate in the sauna.
Wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers will adore the 4-mile walk around the back of Auchencairn Bay. The route takes you out to a quiet peninsula, where you’ll discover a beautiful, secluded beach which is perfect for picnics. Further afield, Galloway Forest Park (just over 30 miles) is a good choice on a hot day, as it offers plenty of shade for your four-legged friends and the mountainous scenery is fabulous. It’s also a great place for stargazing and there’s an excellent range of outdoor activities, including mountain biking and salmon fishing.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
