Willow Lodge is a wonderful, contemporary lodge with a modern interior and fabulous views over the Solway Firth. Located close to the village of Creetown and the town of Newton Stewart, there are plenty of shops restaurants, cafés and pubs to peruse or enjoy a tasty meal at.
Conveniently situated on the Creetown to Kirroughtree path, there is fantastic walking and cycling available directly from the lodge. Situated on a working sheep and dairy farm, stabling is also available if you choose to bring your horse along for his own holiday!
The lodge is nestled on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, Britain’s largest forest park with three hundred square miles of wild beauty just waiting to be discovered. The park is home to tranquil valleys, rugged rock faces, forest, moorland, lochs and ancient woodland, as well as a huge diversity of wildlife including red and roe deer, wild goats and many birds of prey.
The park has also been awarded the status of one of only four Dark Sky Parks in the western world and when the sun sets enthusiasts come to wonder at the universe revealed above. Dalmellington at the far end of the park is home to the Scottish Dark Observatory well worth a visit.
For outdoor enthusiast Galloway offers hill walking, mountain biking and water-sports, with many renowned gardens and ancient woodland to explore with a chance to glimpse the abundant wildlife.
