Self-catering accommodation in
Scotland's surprising south west

"Ignore the Highlands and Islands for once and explore Dumfries and Galloway in the south west instead. The weather is better, the Solway coast has lots of secluded bays, there are dozens of castles such as Threave and Caerlaverock, and as the region has few main roads, it is much quieter."

- 'The best of British', The Sunday Telegraph

Woodpecker Lodge
is located in the beautiful and varied countryside of Dumfries and Galloway,
 five miles south-west of the market town of Dumfries, on a small, exclusive lodge development.

The high-quality, fully-equipped detached lodge has two bedrooms and sleeps up to four people. It's ver
y comfortable at any time of the year, and has an open view of the surrounding fields, hills and Mabie Forest, which is only a ten-minute walk from the lodge, along a track.

The site used to be part of the grounds of nearby Cairnyard House, and its location is ideal for visiting the many attractions in Dumfries and Galloway - see left - and is only 2 hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh by car.
