    “Lodge was comfortable and spacious for 4 of us (we booked a 3 bedroom lodge so each teen son could have their own space).”

    Check in was easy and reception staff always friendly. Very disappointed to read in a review a week before we went that WiFi wasn’t actually available in the lodge but only in the main reception. This is not made clear in the listings. It states there is a communal laundry area (on site, made clear), dishwasher (in lodge), TV with freeview (in lodge), DVD (in lodge) and then goes on to mention Nintendo wii, WiFi and a selection of books and dvds all following on from lodge facilities. These are in fact only available in the central area. Amenities in the central reception area are listed as pool, sauna, gym, pool table, table tennis and Nintendo wii with no mention of WiFi available here but in fact this is the only place you can get it. In my opinion this is deliberately misleading so that people will book. If the lodge was listed as not having WiFi it would have an impact on bookings in this day and age. The central reception area closes at 8.30pm so even if you wanted to use WiFi you would only be able to do so till 8.30! Again with 2 teenage sons this was unacceptable and I ended up having to purchase a dongle and my own data at a total cost of £123 - a considerable extra expense when I booked believing there was WiFi in the lodge! They were putting in internet cables while we were there so I think internet will be available shortly in the lodges. Location wise, it’s a very remote site. A car is essential and we’ve spent the week driving for hours to get around the local area (furthest we went was Edinburgh). We’ve racked up hundreds of miles so if you’re not keen on driving (or putting miles on the car) this place is not for you unless you plan on staying on the site. The pool, sauna and pool table were welcome additions to our stay and added an extra something that you wouldn’t get if booking a house somewhere.

About the location


Ayr 16 miles.

Located on the Water of Girvan in South Ayrshire, Dailly, or ‘New Dailly’ to distinguish it from ‘Old Dailly’, was developed in the mid 18th-century as a coal mining village. The ruins of the Robert Adam-designed Dalquharran Castle stand on a hill overlooking the village. The ruined church at Old Dailly dates from pre-Reformation times, and houses the mysterious Blue Stones; thought to be Charter Stones, ancient symbols granted to an area in place of a written charter, several legends have grown up around them. One holds they were Sanctuary Stones and would protect anyone sitting against them, and another belief is that their mystical powers would bring good fortune to anyone touching them. The village of Dailly today has a pub, shop and post office and the series of Dailly Trails make for ideal walking, forming part of the Carrick Way. Dailly’s proximity to the Ayrshire coast makes it an ideal venue for exploring the many golf courses, beaches and castles, including spectacular Culzean Castle, and with the Galloway Forest Park nearby and its many walks and cycle rides, this is a great location to use as a base for touring.

Note: Maximum party is 6 including infants
