Lovely log cabin/lodge that is well appointed and has that cozy/warm feeling that welcomes you in from the moment you park up outside. Communication with Ann was excellent and we had a great time in The Dumfries area and used the Dragons Lodge as a base. Really cozy place that was fantastic for the 5 of us and we all loved it and would not hesitate to recommend to other guests - Lots of nice wee touches, eg Wi-Fi, Induction Hob, welcome basket with tea and coffee etc that made our stay more relaxing.

Nice place for a short break with great outdoors space for kids to play. The lodge also provides access to the onsite pool a few minutes walk away. Would definitely return.

Thank you to Ann for letting us stay in your beautiful and cosy holiday home. We had an amazing time with our two young girls. Lovely home and stunning surroundings. Only a stones throw from the beach too. We will most certainly be coming back. Thank you again.. Ashley, Danny and Maddie. Mark, Stacey and Riley xxxx

Dragon's Lodge was a home away from home with everything you would need for a family holiday. I use a wheelchair and found the lodge more than manageable (bar the kitchen as it was too small for my chair, not an issue if you don't mind others helping you!) Ann was a wonderful host; the lodge was cosy and very clean and tidy, any messages sent were promptly responded to and a shower seat, manual wheelchair and set of stairlift instructions were left in the lodge. It was made as easy as possible for me which is very much appreciated! I recommend the on site restaurant and bar who, with only a few days notice, prepared a vegan meal for me on two different occasions. Our highlight was definitely the Barend Badgers! They came right below our balcony and we fed them peanuts every evening. I would definitely return to Dragon's Lodge, it made for a perfect family holiday, and would definitely recommend.

Cosy log cabin in a picturesque location. Easy reach of great destinations like Drumlanrig and Caerlaverock castles and picturesque seasides like Kippford and Rockcliffe. Cabin was clean and homely and use of the pool on site was great. Although this is a holiday park there was no noise at all. No groups of shouting noisy kids. It was serene and tranquil. Would happily stay again.
