This picturesque sailing village is on the Solway Coast (known as 'The Scottish Riviera') in a National Scenic Area in Dumfries & Galloway, home of the only Dark Skies Park in the UK. The quaint Victorian seaside village of Rockcliffe is a 30 min walk along the famous Jubilee Path.

The lodge has a homestead style covered balcony and spacious deck area with panoramic views - from the sea, yacht moorings, Glen Isle, forests and Screel, to the historic fishing village of Palnackie. It's the perfect place to relax, take in the view, watch the birds and wildlife (including iconic Red Squirrels), stargaze, chill-out or entertain.
From the balcony double doors open into both the open plan living area and double bedroom.
Constructed of real cedar the lodge has wood paneled walls giving it natural warmth and simple country charm. The country décor, accessorised with lavender bags, pot-pourri, pictures, rugs and wall hangings creates a practical, comfortable and welcoming interior.
The living area features 'Fisherman's' style lanterns, English leather sofa, comfy armchairs and sea-grass rugs over an 'Antique Oak' easy-clean laminate floor. The country theme continues with damasks and botanical prints, tartan throws and cushions. The locally crafted wood-burning stove with slate hearth completes the cosiness of this rural retreat.
