  • "Perfect lodge, everything you need."

    Very private and peaceful. The view towards Luce Bay is outstanding. Take ten steps and you're in the most glorious, magical gardens which you are free to wander all week. We went the first week in June & it was full of colour & birdsong. Heaven! Good base for exploring the Rhins of Galloway, lots to see, and up the coast to Ayrshire.

    Stunning gardens to walk around and so peaceful. Would love to return.

    Sorry we didn’t meet up. You left the Lodge perfect. Look forward to your next visit. Regards Ian & Tessa Property Owner

  • "Lovely lodge, had everything you could need."

    very peaceful. Very comfy beds. The gardens were lovely despite not being in full bloom due to the time of year we stayed. Great dog walking from the lodge. But only the decking is dog secure. Fabulous beaches, and plenty in the area to explore. The only down side was the shower in the ensuite, as it was electric, it trickled and only managed 2 warm showers as the water temperature wouldn't go any higher than 36degrees apart from twice, luckily there is a bath with a hand held shower in the main bathroom.

  • "We always visit Glenwhan Garden when we holiday in Dumfries & Galloway."

    The Lodge, with its fantastic setting, means you have daily access to the Garden We had the pleasure of meeting Tessa Knott Sinclair the creator of this magical place. Our cocker spaniel loved her garden walks. The property is bright, airy, cosy and very well equipped - we had everything we needed for our weeks stay. The comfort, seclusion and peace make this a very special place. There is easy access to local attractions - including the Mull of Galloway, Port Patrick, Wigtown & the Isle of Whithorn and to other gardens including Castle Kennedy, Logan Botanical, Galloway House and Logan House. We could easily have stayed longer and will definitely be booking again.

  • "We thought that the road direction's to the property could be more simplified, eg."

    Just to follow the signs for Glenwhen Gardens and that the Lodge is situated directly behind the Tearooms. Property really great and comfortable with fantastic views . The heating was far too hot while we were staying , when it comes on, unable to regulate as notice says not too. Also no welcome folder, with no explanation about rubbish, bedding and towels when vacating the property after end of stay. A bit of a mish mash of crockery which seems to let you down, for a higher end LET.

  • "A very nice comfortable lodge with a homely feel set in the most beautiful location."

    The views are amazing and, the gardens are truly wonderful, and a great little tea room, very nice cake, scones etc. I shared some photos with a friend and she has booked a week in May next year. I booked a week in August for the family and me before we left the lodge. I think that says it all.

  • "Property setting was fantastic with great sea views with the beautiful Glenwhan gardens an added bonus."

    Beautiful area with great dog walking on beach, woods and hills. In the property however temperature in the main room was difficult to moderate with only main patio doors able to open when showing 25-32 deg on the thermometer indoors on only warm days. We would have appreciated some bath mats in the bathrooms, only one tea towel and no dish cloth for a weeks stay and no hoover to clean. Glasswear was generally unclean also, which all let the property down and could be improved on.

  • "We loved our stay in The Lodge."

    We were extremely comfortable and cannot fault the quality of the property, furniture, bathrooms, kitchen and beds. The setting is unique and the views are fabulous. We were lucky to see red squirrels, bats, roe deer and some distant red deer. Plenty of birds too. We visited the gardens on many occasions at different times and explored almost every corner. My only complaint is the lack of a few things in the kitchen: A rack in the grill pan, oven gloves, bread knife, and some more saucepans would be handy as there were only 2. This aside, we would definitely recommend The Lodge and Glenwhan Gardens.

Glenwhan Lodge is a stunning Architect designed Lodge set in the most glorious location within the grounds of Glenwhan Gardens, described as one of the most beautiful made gardens in Scotland.

Glenwhan Lodge oozes style and sophistication from the moment you walk in the door and welcomes six guests to relish the ultimate retreat in Wigtownshire.

Marvel at the view from the large open plan living/dining/kitchen from the sliding patio doors that open onto the glass fronted veranda.

The double height ceiling in the open plan living/dining/kitchen adds to the spaciousness of this beautiful room where you can just sit back and relax or enjoy a family meal around the hand made bespoke dining table.

The luxury continues in the bedrooms and bathrooms with sumptuous beds and modern bathrooms.

End your day out on the veranda where you can marvel at the dark starry skies perhaps enjoying a glass of wine!

Glenwhan Lodge is nestled in the grounds of Glenwhan Gardens with unique and stunning sea views to the Isle of Man, Luce Bay and the Mull of Galloway.

Guests at Glenwhan Lodge are welcome to stroll through the gardens with its 17 acre moorland walk, the Ornamental Garden or follow the numbered tree trail where there is a large collection of rare trees, shrubs and many plants from around the Southern Hemisphere.

After your time exploring the Gardens enjoy a cup of tea and delicious home baking in the Garden’s Tea Rooms.

Further afield this delightful corner of South West Scotland is just waiting to be explored from the rugged coastlines with superb cliff top walks, breathtaking scenery around every corner, to secluded sandy beaches benefitting from the warmth of the passing Gulf Stream.

You will find golf courses and fishing fresh, water and sea, together with many unspoilt beaches.
