About the property

Chalet in Kippford, Nr. Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland - An Exclusive Private Development Nestling In Mature Woodland Above An Idyllic Coastal Village.

Kipppford is an idyllic coastal village nestling on the estuary of the river Urr where it joins the Solway Firth. The area is surrounded by unspoilt mature woodland, rocky cliffs and sandy beaches. The village's nautical origins date back to the fifth century AD and landscape wise, little has changed. Kipplochan is one of nine luxury log cabins which nestle round a small pond or "lochan" on a private and exclusive site on the north side of the village. The lodge is the largest of the nine on an exclusive site. It is bright, spacious and lavishly equipped in every way and is intended to provide a secluded and tranquil retreat but with all the comforts and technology of home. Free Wi-Fi, large flat screen HD televisions, high end HiFi, Microsoft Xbox gaming consoles, DVD player and SKY / BT sport are all included in the package. We are suitable for families, couples, sailors, mountain bikers, in fact anyone other than stag or hen parties!

About wendy bainbridge

I am a busy mum of three . Kipplochan is also our family getaway and so I've tried to make it as user/ people friendly as possible! We love ambling down to the Anchor pub in kippford for tea , and there are great walks to rockcliffe with its pretty coastline ..plus the ice-cream van!

wendy bainbridge purchased this cabin in 2013

Why wendy bainbridge chose Dumfries & Galloway

Kipplochan is family owned run and loved , full of creature comforts for a relaxing break set in quiet peaceful surroundings yet close enough to explore the magical coast of southwest Scotland.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I booked the lodge for a surprise getaway for my wife and some friends over the weekend.

The lodge was spotless and everything was superb from start to finish. I will certainly be coming back.

Excellent 3 bed roomed log cabin in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We were all most impressed by accommodation especially my four year old grandson who was so excited at staying in a log cabin. The lodge felt like a home from home and was very well appointed & spotlessly clean. The owner Wendy was very helpful & friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone. It was lovely to return to Kipford after a long absence We were attending a memorial walk at nearby Criffel Hill also visited Mabe farm park which my grandsons loved and Sandyhills beach. There was plenty of choice to eat out ranging from tea rooms to nearby Steamboat & the Anchor
