This beautiful self catering accommodation is located in Dumfries and Galloway in the tranquil surroundings of Dalbeattie, near the coast. Barend is able to accommodate large groups making it perfect for all kinds of gatherings including friends, families, corporate and activity groups. Please note, however, that this is not a party site. Many lodges are dog friendly too.

With excellent facilities for families on site, Barend offers free swimming in its fantastic indoor pool, use of a sauna, plus free golf at Craigieknowes.

The site also has a restaurant offering home cooked food for added convenience. Why not reserve a large table for that special celebration or event? The bar is well stocked and has a cosy, welcoming log burning stove to sit by and while away the hours at any time of year.

Most of the accommodation is arranged over 2 floors but the 2 cabins and cottage are single storey making them perfect for the less mobile in a multi generational group. Whichever you choose, you can be assured of a stunning view of the sea, loch or amazing countryside.

Barend lodges and cabins have a convenient mix of king sized, double and twin bedrooms, with luxury bedding and towels. There are ample bathroom facilities for visitors in all of the properties, most offering a bath, shower and some vanity sinks in bedrooms.

Living areas are spacious and airy making them great for socialising whether it is inside or on verandas and balconies with outside seating. Kitchens are well equipped but should you require extra glassware and crockery for a special occasion, this can be made available on request.

Just a 10 minute walk away is the picturesque Sandyhills Bay where you can explore rock pools and enjoy expansive sands. 5 miles away is the town of Dalbeattie with its world class mountain bike trails or 50 miles to Carlisle. There are many opportunities to discover local wildlife at Barend - see badgers, roe deer, red squirrels, birds of prey and woodpeckers from your door or visiting a family of swans at nearby Barend Loch.


Kitchens come fully equipped with ovens, grills, microwaves, dishwashers, plenty of cooking utensils. High quality crockery is available on request.
