There's a few niggles you could have about this park/lodge, but nothing that should deter you away from the overall excellent premises, facilities and location.
The TV is a bit knackered, the DVD player didn't work and there's not much storage for food. The lodge is more like a large double static caravan clad in timber, and such creaks and groans like a caravan does, not a solid timber lodge. The lodge is very comfortable, clean although perhaps a touch dated. Nice windows and verandah and the electric heating all works well to ensure a comfy stay. Within its price band, its what you should expect. The park and grounds it is set in are excellent and really well maintained too.
For a 4 night midweek stay for a VIP lodge, I think we've paid something like £230. The booking warned that the hot tub was a 30 yard walk, so we didn't quite know what to expect. There was nothing to worry about, as we'd scored the most private hot tub on the park sheltered in its own bamboo screened timber gazebo. The views from the hot tub overlook Newton Stewart and where the sun sets. The gazebo has its own picnic area too, although icing on the cake would be if they'd provided a BBQ.
Newton Stewart and its surrounds are a lovely part of the world and this is an excellent, very good value for money place to choose. Add the hot tub, and you've got that extra bit of luxury at a great price.
I shouldn't write such glowing reviews, as the availability will decrease and the prices maybe the other way.
