This lodge is furnished to a very high standard with modern and tasteful decor and is meticulously maintained - it has everything you need for a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Its location is great for exploring local towns and for the more adventurous the hills and forests which are in abundance. I would have no hesitation is recommending the Woodpecker Lodge whether for a long weekend or for longer stays.
Access to the lodge was easy to find and parking was for two cars. The lodge was spacious and very clean. It was well equipped with multiple TV channels, dishwasher etc.The views over open countryside was lovely and there was a convenient path leading from the lodge to mabie forest. We used the lodge as a base for watching the overwintering geese. Every morning we had skeins of pink footed and barnacle geese flying over the lodge. Will have no hesitation booking this lodge again.
We have no doubt this is one of the best lodges we've stayed at.we have been here 3 times and it's stunning excellently equipped and first class surroundings. So relaxing either sitting outside or looking through the large patio doors . Very handy for sight seening mable forest dumfries town centre and pay a visit to kippford also sandyhills beach . You don't need to venture from the lodge it's so relaxing just watching the wild life in the beautiful landscaped gardens. Sue and Neil have a true diamond in this lodge and thanks for allowing us to enjoy it see you soon .
Spent 4 night at the woodpecker had a fantastic time and the dogs loved it. So chilled out.so isolated but close as you like to the town
Superb accommodation in an excellent location for exploring a beautiful part of Scotland, often overlooked. We walked, enjoyed the Colvend Coast and were absorbed in the history and the surrounding towns. The lodge itself could not have been a better base with every facility and comfort. We would love to spend another break there in the future
