About the owners

Andrew & Jennifer

We love staying at the lodges ourselves – we’ve brought up three children and always found lots to do for all ages on our regular stays there.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Active families should check out kayaking, sailing, windsurfing and more at Galloway Activity Centre.

  • There are endless mountain bike trails to suit a variety of ages and abilities so don’t forget your bikes.

  • Low tide is the best time to visit the beach for paddling - or even a swim.

  • Feed the animals at Mabie Farm Park.
