Laurel Lodge Sleeps 6 (3 Bedrooms)
The lodge has a large lobby with coat hooks leading to an open plan kitchen/ living/dining area with a Whirlpool hob and under oven, dishwasher, fridge, table for 6, a TV and DVD player. There is a utility room off the lobby housing the washing machine, a table top freezer, clothes airer and iron.
The master bedroom has a super king size bed and ensuite with walk in shower cubicle. There are also 2 twin rooms. The main bathroom has a white 3 piece suite with a shower attachment over the bath.
Bluebell and Laurel Lodges are attractive log chalets that sleep up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms each. Bluebell benefits from a large decking area that completely surrounds the lodge and also has an enclosed grass area within easy view of the deck so is ideal for families. Laurel also has a decking area on two sides of the lodge and access to a smaller grass area down a few steps. There is seating outside for al fresco eating when the opportunity presents itself at both lodges. The lodges sit in a private development of 9 individual lodges that surround a pretty lochan and are backed by the Dalbeattie woods so it is a very peaceful setting. If you are lucky, you might even see red squirrels in the trees!

Kippford is a centre for sailing and has public launching areas for watercraft and watersports. It is also the home of the Solway Yacht Club. There is a pretty coastal path between Kippford and the neighbouring village of Rockcliffe. If it is a sandy beach that you crave, then Sandyhills beach is about 10-15 mins drive and for a small parking fee you can stay all day playing in the sand and rock pools. There is a shop on site for ice creams and beach essentials.
As Kippford is in a beautiful but rural part of Scotland, travel by car is essential.
