Woodside is more than a lodge, it is a beautifully appointed, cosy and indulgent holiday retreat with all mod cons and excellent insulation and with the addition of the hot tub it is an all year round destination. There is something deliciously romantic about sipping champagne from the hot tub whilst surrounded by a winter wonderland, or in the summer, with a good book and a glass of wine. This is a super location for cyclists whatever their ability, from serious mountain bikers to family fun rides, as Woodside backs on to the Mabie Forest. You can see the site of both the Red and Purple rides of the 7Stanes from the lodge and the owner will provide guided tours by bike or on foot by arrangement. This beautiful area has so much to offer. As well as the renowned mountain biking, The Galloway Forest Park is the UK’s largest and there are hidden waterfalls, mountains, wildlife and lochs and on a clear night it is one of the best places in the western world to view the stars. For foodies this is the land of milk and honey and you can sample some great cuisine at a choice of restaurants across the country. Castle Douglas is known as The Food Town and you can savour the flavours at an excellent choice of shops. The New Loch Arthur Farm Shop at Beeswing is just a mile away and offers local home made cheeses and everyday items. Dumfries and Galloway is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets; come and see why!
Woodside (CC537148) can be booked along with Woodedge (UK30294), Woodburn (CC537199) and Wood view (UK30293) to accommodate 16 guests.
Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Threave Castle is a castle with a difference - access to it is by the custodian rowing you across the moat! For adrenalin seekers wanting something different, Laggan Outdoors offers mountain balling and has the UK’s longest zip wire! Whatever the time of the year there is always something on offer from a host of artistic activities and music of all genres to Kirkcudbright’s Art programme and the summer festivities with a spectacular Tattoo as a finale. There is space and solitude in abundance here and the hill walking is superb and surprisingly devoid of people and often you can have the summits to yourself! A rare treat! For wildlife the area is unbeatable, whether for seeing the wildlife within their natural habitat or visiting Kirkcudbright’s Wildlife Conservation Park, or the red deer range on the Queen’s Way, where you can watch the deer being fed. The red kite feeding station at Laurieston is recommended. We have over two hundred miles of stunning coastline and where better to cook freshly caught fish than a barbecue on a sandy beach. The nearby Loch Ken is not just a paradise for fishermen but also offers a sailing and water skiing centre which is ideal for all the family. The magnificent Drumlanrig Castle is a must. This former Douglas stronghold and now the home of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, is set in 90,000 acres of spectacular grounds
