Thistle Lodges

 
Self Catering
Colvend
Sleeps: 8
Price from: £510.00 to £845.00 pw

Set back from the coast in a well kept development of similar properties with free access to an onsite swimming pool, the three lodges are traditionally constructed to a high Scandinavian standard, with lovely views over wooded fells and a small loch.

Whether as a couples’ hideaway, for a memorable family holiday by the sea, or as a base for group activity such as mountain biking or golf, Thistle Lodges will suit you perfectly.

There is an on-site bar and restaurant a short stroll away, and you are a pleasant walk from the ever-popular beach at Sandyhills Bay.

The lodges –

Bainloch, Braemar and Laggan Hill – are laid out on two floors with a balcony to each floor.

On the ground floor

is a large living and dining area for 8 people, with full height sliding glass doors all down one side leading to the large balcony.

There is a fully equipped kitchen adjacent. Also downstairs is a double bedroom and the main bathroom with over-bath shower.

On the first floor

is another double bedroom with an en-suite WC/bathroom with shower.

Also upstairs is a large open plan sleeping area with four single beds and a small balcony.

The kitchens are recently fitted and equipped with ceramic hob and oven, refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is a good range of cooking equipment and utensils, crockery, glassware and cutlery.

The living rooms have a music centre and a television with DVD player.

The lodges are also specially equipped for mountain bikers enjoying the nearby 7Stanes routes at Dalbeattie, Ae and Mabie, with bike storage, bike wash and tool provision (eg bike stand and floor pump).

Being close to each other, the lodges are ideal for group holidays of up to 24 people.

Rental costs are for occupancy for up to 8 people in each lodge include electricity, heating, bed linen and towels and use of

the on-site indoor heated swimming pool and sauna.
