The Old School House, Ringford, Castle Douglas, Dumfries & Galloway, DG7 2AL

    Located in Sandyhills Bay on the beautiful Solway Coast, these luxury self-catering holiday lodges provide an idyllic base for families, couples and groups who want to enjoy the great outdoors.

    All of the self-catering holiday lodges are situated around the hamlet of Sandyhills. You can choose to stay in one of the luxury traditional Scandinavian 'A' frame properties set in the superb parkland of Barend Holiday Village where you can enjoy sweeping views. Alternatively, the traditional stone-built Galloway country cottages also offer the perfect stay, just a stone's throw from one of Scotland's finest beaches.

    The properties are dog-friendly, furnished and equipped to a high standard; all have central heating, ensuring warm and comfortable holidays throughout the year. Each of the modern kitchens is fully equipped with everything you need for your self-catering break, while outside on the patio, enjoy a barbecue and unwind as you soak up the views.

    Providing a blend of seaside and countryside, this is an ideal choice for making the most of the great outdoors. From walking on Sandyhills beach to mountain biking on the nearby 7stanes mountain bike trails, golfing or fishing, you can enjoy it all here. The rolling farmland, sheltered lochs, and coastline with its spectacular headlands, cliffs and sheltered sandy bays also offers great birdwatching opportunities, particularly in the spring when the cliffs team with birdlife. There are also beautiful scenic and challenging golf courses, fantastic fishing and exhilarating watersports on offer.

    Nearby, the Galloway Forest Park is 300 square miles of beautiful green forest, heather-clad hills, a wealth of wildlife and two of the 7stanes mountain biking centres, Glentrool and Kirroughtree.
