Amazing scenery, excellent escape from modern society. Host was not only welcoming but went the extra mile to ensure the little extras like coffee, fruit, prosecco, beer, biscuits etc were available. The lodge was exceptionally clean and had a luxurious feel. The hot tub is an excellent added feature that was complimented by the views. Would recommend and would certainly go again, great little escape!
In a word, delightful. The lodge is well furnished, the beds are super-comfy, and the high-tech jacuzzi just adds to the sense of luxury.
The owners were warm and welcoming and there were thoughtful touches throughout on arrival. We used this as a base to explore Hadrian's Wall, Beamish, Gretna Green and the surrounding countryside. If you're happy to drive a bit you could head well into Scotland or towards Durham from here - we did.
Your're on a working farm so expect lots of animals - geese, ducks, sheep and some friendly cats!
I stayed at the lodge for Easter weekend 2017. The whole place is absolutely immaculate and I could not believe that it had been open for a few years as everything looked brand new. As a very special touch, Adele the owner had left us a hamper full of local goodies that was not expected but very appreciated. I will not spoil the surprise of this as I think she leaves a basket for every stay (though I suspect ours was extra special as it was Easter) but needless to say, it was an extremely thoughtful touch.
The lodge is situated next to a farm and I think that if your party has children, they will love this as they can get a close up look of the animals if they wish. I was particularly impressed by the high spec of the applicances which included a bottle fridge, coffee machine, free fast wifi and of course, a great hot tub.
There is loads to explore in the surrounding area and I was particularly impressed by Carlisle which is definitely a hidden gem.
Overall far exceeded all of our expectations, I don't think I've ever experienced a level of cleanliness and attention to detail like this before; even in luxury hotels!
Thank you Adele for making our Easter weekend extra special.
Needed a last minute break to get away from it all and we found the perfect place. Booked one day, arrived the next to find our home from home for the next 7 nights. We have stayed in many lodges but have never received a welcome pack, like the one that greeted us on our arrival, I won't spoil the surprises but you will not be disappointed!! The lodge has everything you could need, a pleasant surprise opening the drawers and cupboards. Soft white fluffy towels and a huge comfy bed and comfy pillows. The hot tub was great, although the weather was against us, we made the most of it, as often as we could. Good area for exploring but also a great base for much needed r & r. The owners Mr & Mrs Taylor were very helpful without being intrusive. Many thanks for a great stay, I'm sure we will try and get back.
Just back from an amazing stay at this fantastic lodge, I was taken as a surprise from my partner and what a surprise it was. We were made to feel so welcome the lodge itself was stunning and the personal gifts were lovely. The owners even went out there way to accommodate my food requirements. The little treats made it so special and the hot tub was the icing on the cake, it was so enjoyable we even stayed an extra night! Would recommend for any couples to get away, close to Gretna shopping centre and a great location. Looking forward to our next visit!!!

We went to Pheasant lodge to celebrate our 20th Wedding anniversary so we wanted it to be somewhere nice. Needless to say we were not disappointed. Mrs Taylor emailed to confirm our booking and also called. We arrived on the Monday to the fantastic autumn scenery. Mrs Taylor was there to meet us and took us straight to the lodge where we were very impressed by the quality and the attention to detail from the great hamper to the complimentary fruit and even down to the sonos sound system. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Both Mr and Mrs Taylor were charming and very helpful. I would recommend Pheasant lodge as an ideal get away for anyone.
