Norwegian-style forest lodge in Kippford, Dumfries & Galloway
BIRCHLEA LODGE is a 3-bedroom luxury pine log cabin in an exclusive site in the yachting village of Kippford. Overlooking a pretty lochan, it provides modern holiday accommodation in a peaceful setting but with many amenities and activities nearby. Close to beaches and forest, it is perfect for relaxing or making the most of Dumfries & Galloway.
Spacious with quality furnishings and free Wi-Fi, Birchlea Lodge suits couples and family groups. A stylish alternative to a holiday cottage, Birchlea is well-equipped for self-catering and within walking distance of 2 good seafront pubs.
Kippford is a scenic coastal village on the Solway Firth. A tidal inlet with a pretty ‘no cars’ coastal road leading to cockle shell beaches, and gentle forest & grassy paths, all with views to islands in the bay. It offers an abundance of walks and has a public pier for watercraft. A National Trust path joins it to Rockcliffe, where there is a sandy beach.
And with specialist shopping towns like Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright, Scottish castles, 7Stanes mountain biking, golf, RSPB sites, adventure centres with the UK’s longest zip wire, sailing and mountain-balling, ice cream farms and even a chocolate factory, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
As the region suffers little light pollution, it is no surprise that the UK’s first Dark Sky Park is here – at nearby Galloway Forest.
Or you may prefer to just chill on the veranda watching the sun set over the Galloway hills!
