Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Thistle Lodges, Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland , sleeps 8-24 in 9 bedrooms.
Set back from the coast in a well-kept private development, the lodges are traditionally constructed to a high Scandinavian standard and have lovely views over wooded fells and a small loch. The three lodges are close to each other, and booking two or three together works well for a large group of family or friends.
The lodges - Bainloch, Braemar and Laggan Hill - are laid out on two floors with a balcony to each floor. On the ground floor is a large living and dining area for 8 people, with a fully equipped kitchen adjacent. A large balcony with furniture for dining al fresco is accessed through sliding doors from the living area. Also downstairs is a double bedroom and the main bathroom with over-bath shower.
On the first floor is another double bedroom with an en-suite WC and washbasin. Also upstairs is a large open plan sleeping area with four single beds and a small balcony.
The kitchens are newly fitted and equipped with ceramic hob and oven, refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster.
As part of a private development of similar lodges, Thistle Lodges have the benefit of a variety of on site leisure facilities.
This includes free use of an indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, together with free access to a small children's playground and boules courts.
Next to the lodges is a riding stable, from where rides out of all different standards can be arranged, Colvend Golf Club and deer park offering 4WD tours.
As part of the swimming pool buildings you will also find a small bar area, restaurant and courtyard for summer music entertainment.
The South West Coast is a relatively unknown and completely unspoilt part of Scotland. Fanned by the Gulf Stream, the climate is often surprisingly mild. Small coastal villages, thousands of acres of forests and gentle but awe-inspiring fells come together to make this an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The price varies according to the number of people staying in the lodge and as a guide are from £325 to £725.
