“Home away fromm Home”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Boked this cabin for myself, hubby and four friends plus my best friend my staffie Levi. On arrival gaining access to the property was easy and once inside I was surprised at hoe spacious the living, dining and kitchen area were. Even in November the lodge was cosy and welcoming after a hard days drinking down at the Anchor in Kippford. The cost for six adults sharing in very reasonable as this includes a sky package on tv, Wi-Fi and gas and electric. Will defo return and for me and my friends it would be perfect to go in the winter and it would be snowing.

“A little piece of kippford magic”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Have stayed here 6 times in last 12 months, we prefer it keeps secret and no one else books.

Seriously its all we wanted and the little gifts and special touches from Wendy make all the difference and we feel welcome from the second we step inside.

There is something special and magic about this part of the world and staying here encompasses that.

“Great location and very spacious lodge”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Lodge is in a great location in a small, secluded area with all the lodges around a small pond, peaceful and tranquil with plenty of privacy.

The lodge is very nice and plenty of room for 6 people (we spent a long weekend away for my son's 18th Birthday which went great) with all mod cons you could wish for including sky tv, xbox etc...plus handy gas BBQ which was used as the weather was lovely.
The only thing I would say which I have mentioned to the owner via email is that it could do with a bit of TLC in places especially the outside where the decking is worn, decking fences the paint is pealing, outside table/chairs old and worn with new covers needed etc....as this would then bring it back to a 5* standard.

We went out and about in the area as know it quite well from previous visits to this area and there is plenty to do, see, lovely beaches etc...

The village is nice and we had a nice meal in the Mariner Hotel which is a short 10 min walk from the lodge.

All in all a lovely lodge, location etc...with just the minor points mentioned to improve it.

“Stunning Lodge - The best we've stayed in when visiting Scotland”

person found this review helpful

Would recommend this Lodge as it exceeded our expectation on arrival. Very modern with all the mod cons made this stay one of the most enjoyable ones we've had in 25 years visiting the region. The lodge itself is very spacious and has ample room for everyone and its location is set in just the right place. Hope to visit next year!

“Perfect for short break with friends :)”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Kipplochan was a really lovely lodge and as a group of friends we would be very happy to recommend and return - especially if could book a few sunny days this would make it perfect place to stay! As soon as everyone walked through the door felt relieved to see it was just like the photos on the website - clean and tidy with some lovely homely and welcoming touches including a welcome basket of treats which was very much appreciated :)
