Luxurious stylish lodge with a fantastic private hot tub and beautiful loch and countryside scenery to enjoy, located in wonderful rural area on a large family run farm working farm close to Auchencairn

Nestled on the shores of the bonnie Bengairn Loch, this tranquil single-storey lodge is the perfect spot for a family holiday or romantic getaway, with room for your four-legged friend too. With hills, country trails and secluded beaches nearby, you won’t be short of options for days out. After returning from exploring the Solway coastline, jump in the private hot tub to soak up the jaw-dropping views across the loch.

Inside, the spacious open-plan living space is immaculately designed, with stylish sofas, dreamy bedrooms and a contemporary shaker-style kitchen. Watch the Smart TV in the lounge while your pup curls up on his favourite blanket in front of the wood burner effect electric fire. Sometimes, it’s easy to lose track of time just gazing out through the floor-to-ceiling windows. French doors lead to the large, enclosed patio area where summer nights are all about cooking up a BBQ feast or enjoying a wee dram beside the fire pit ahead of an evening of stargazing. Wake up to wonderful countryside views from both en-suite bedrooms and step out on to the patio to welcome the day with a coffee from the Tassimo machine.

Get two and four legs moving with walks to the delightful coastal village of Auchencairn (1 mile) or stride out on a more challenging hike through the vast woodlands of Galloway Forest Park (20 miles). If you’re lucky, you might even spot an elusive red squirrel or pine marten. If your boy loves to frolic in the waves, head to the golden sands of Sandyhills Beach (13.5 miles), which allows dogs throughout the year. Water sports enthusiasts and dogs on leads can also burn off some energy at Galloway Activity Centre (18 miles) on the banks of Loch Ken.

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

The cottage/lodge is perfect. It is finished to a high end with all you could possibly need during your stay. The owners are lovely with nothing too much trouble. The location is perfect to get away from it all. I'll miss waking up every morning to that wonderful view across the Loch.
