“Woodpecker Lodge! What a find!”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Woodpecker Lodge, which is about 6 miles beyond Dumfries. A few days before check in I received a message from the owner informing me of the code for the key safe which enabled my party to get into the lodge. What a lovely surprise we got! Fat balls in the little porch for feeding the birds! That was a first!

I have stayed at many lodges in different parts of Scotland. This is definitely one of the best in terms of furniture, fittings, decor, location and the ornaments, paintings and little touches which make it comfortable, welcoming and homely. There is a folder which provides clear information about appliances, local shops etc. Very handy!

Both bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and lounge are all finished to a high standard. Bedding, towels, crockery, dishes and kitchen utensils are plentiful. The whole lodge is spotlessly clean! The outside decking area has very attractive patio furniture, including a two seater swing seat and the garden is large and well maintained with a bench at the top, presumably to catch the sun, when it shines!

The lodge is situated in a peaceful and tranquil spot yet it is ideal for exploring Dumfries and the towns along the Galloway Coast. I came upon it by chance when I was looking at accomodation in Dumfries and Galloway and I'm so glad I did!

If you are considering a break in this area, look no further than Woodpecker Lodge! I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as my friends and I did!
