Use of indoor heated swimming pool and sauna
Surrounded by parkland and countryside, several steps lead to this privately-owned lodge which overlooks the park’s loch. Within a holiday complex, which consists of approximately 70 lodges, it is just 400 yards from Sandyhills, one of the finest beaches along this unspoilt coast. A modern and comfortable holiday base; watch a wealth of wildlife from the balcony, or, enjoy the varied facilities this park has to offer. Enjoy the benefits of an on-site indoor heated swimming pool (at extra cost), bar, restaurant and a riding centre, which provides lessons and trekking. Play a round of golf at the 18-hole course at Colvend or go sailing from Kippford. Enjoy walking or mountain biking in Dalbeattie Forest or traverse the Jubilee Path between Kippford and Rockcliffe. Visit Sweet Heart Abbey, Drumcoltran Tower or New Abbey Watermill. Sea fishing available all along the extensive coastline. Dumfries, 20 miles, home to Robert Burns in his later years, is well worth visiting for its many modern amenities and range of historical sites. Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright are also accessible.

Customer Reviews of Ash Lodge, Sandyhills, sleeps 8
1st comment: Very nice property - set in a very nice location. May 2010.
2nd comment: Wonderful view from lodge. Oct 2009.
3rd comment: We don’t want to praise it too highly because people will book it the week we go in Feb. Good Value for money. A place to relax and get away from everything. We have been to the same lodge 5 times now. Feb 2009.
4th comment: This was the 4th time we have booked Ash Lodge - it is a comfortable, clean and tidy lodge. Also we are able to take the dog. The location is excellent, along with the restaurant, horse riding, local farm. Just a good place to chill. Would recommend it to anyone - but not the week that we go! Feb 2008.
5th comment: The accommodation was well presented and clean. It has a beautiful outlook and was ideal for our purposes, fishing, riding, biking walking and water sports. The beds were comfy and the furnishings were obviously well used but comfortable and clean. It felt like a family base rather than a clinical show home. Oct 2007.
6th comment: Fantastic accommodation, a view to die for. Very peacful. March 2007.
7th comment: Very well equipped property, good pool and sauna. Aug 2007.
