Gorgeous cottage which has modern decor and amenities and is very well appointed. Very easy to find and, whilst next to a road, is quiet and peaceful. Enclosed garden which is perfect for our 2 dogs and a lovely log burner … equally excellent for dogs and humans! Fantastic location for Dumfries (10mins) and various forest and beaches (5-20mins). Loved it so much we booked another weekend when we got home!!! Highly recommend

This was our second visit to East lodge. A beautiful well equipped cottage, close to local amenities, beautiful walks on the doorstep. We had our dog with us again so this is ideal for him, plus the large enclosed gardens are fantastic. Central for exploring, Mabbie Forest is a must if you enjoy walking, or a wee drive along the solway coast. We just love it here and the owners are easy to contact should you need them, And very lovely, nothing seems a bother. Lovely welcome of shortbread, a nice bottle of Fizz and some wee treats for Angus 🐾 was such a lovely, thoughtful touch. Hope to be back next year. Thank you both 🥰

We loved East Lodge!!All kitchen utensils provided with sufficient dishwasher/washing machine tablets for our short stay. Comfy bed with quality bedding + hairdryer and iron. Excellent shower and fluffy towels. 5* cleanliness throughout the cottage.Comfortable lounge with large wood burner. Again, enough initial fuel provided for this. The garden was large and secure for our two french bulldogs to zoom around. We even got to sit out on the patio as the weather was good.Dumfries is 5mins away. Mabie forest, 5mins away is a must with various walks for all abilities. We visited Southerness and Rockliffe beaches but please check the tides. Rockliffe more picturesque with walks. Good walks from the Lodge too.Excellent communication from Carrie the host from start to finish. Lovely welcome basket for both us and our dogs. Highly recommend East Lodge!!
