  • "The lodge was fabulous, clean and as described."

    The view out over the golf course and to the sea was beautiful. It is on the Park Dean site and by far the nicest Lodge there. The onsite shop was very useful and the children enjoyed the pool. The village of Southerness is nice and the 2 pubs down there are good for drinks, food and entertainment. A lovely beach too. We would definitely return to Dershal Lodge if we were visiting the area again.

  • "The lodge itself is perfectly situated with lovely views."

    Very spacious and as described. Only comments would be under the settee had not been hoovered and the bed settee had a dirty sheet left under it so we did not use this and had to find an alternative sleeping area. The lodge would benefit from a hoover. Other than that we enjoyed our stay despite the site being a little quiet for us.

    Hi Kelly, thank you for your feedback and we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have made our cleaners fully aware of your comments to ensure this doesn’t happen again, we would have been more than happy to resolve this at the time if we had known about it. We sincerely hope this didn’t impact your holiday and would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future. Many Thanks Property Owner

  • "Had a fantastic stay at Dershel Lodge, could not fault it abseloutly spotless Lodge, we had an issue with the power late at night and we called the owners Lindsay and Paul and they were willing to come to the lodge nothing was to much trouble for them , lucky enough the issue was resolved quickly no fault of the Lodge itself."

    Comfiest beds I have slept in at any sykes properties and I have slept at many. Beach is a 2 minute walk away Lodge looks out onto a beautiful outlook of a quiet golf course and the sea. Only thing I would say is that it could do with is a chopping board and the cutting knives to be sharpened, but I am sure the owners will sort that out no problem as their Lodge is 5 star. Will certainly be rebooking to come back again.

The property

Nestled moments away from the coast in Southerness, Dumfries and Galloway on the popular Parkdean holiday park is Dershel Lodge.

This luxurious lodge benefits from off-road parking for two cars, a wrap-around decking with views across the golf course, on-site amenities including an indoor pool, bar, restaurant, adventure playground and wildlife nature trail as well as a spacious open-plan living space welcoming up to six guests.

Cross the threshold and settle down on the plush sofa in front of the flickering warmth of the electric flame-effect stove and watch on as the designated chef of the group makes themselves at home in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Lay the table ready to sample their culinary creation and tuck in while reminiscing on the memories you have created so far, if the sun is shining why not step outside to savour golden hour with a glass of wine.

When the sun disappears behind the horizon, head inside to wash away the day’s adventures in the sleek bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either of the king-size bedrooms; one of which boasts a handy en-suite shower room.

If you can tear yourself away from this fantastic site and property, head to Southerness beach where you can amble through its rocky terrain, tour the lighthouse, and admire the breath-taking views across the sea, on clear days you may even be able to spot the Isle of Man.

The coast houses other wondrous attractions including the Mares Braids Waterfall hiking route which meanders through whimsical leafy woodland and rewards guests with a beautiful waterfall; there is also the Bainloch Deer Park which runs guided tours and even offers the opportunities to feed the resident deer!

Venture inland to explore the John Paul Jones Museum, the impressive medieval Caerlaverock Castle which boasts its own moat, the ruins of Sweetheart Abbey or the former home of the famous poet Robert Burns.

All of this and more awaits at Dershel Lodge.

EPC Rating: Band B

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Castle Douglas 19 miles; Dalbeattie 13 miles; Dumfries 16 miles.

Southerness is a small coastal village established in the late 18th century, which looks out over the Solway Firth, and forms part of the Colvend coast, one of the finest stretches of coastline on the 'Scottish Riviera'. Home to three pubs, two village stores, a leisure centre with a pool at Parkdean and two miles of sandy beaches with sand dunes, rock pools and Gulf Stream warmed waters, and one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland, built in 1748, it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The nearby Criffel Hill rises to 569m, offers wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary below, and provides great walking opportunities. The Southerness Championship Golf Course adjoins the village and offers panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south and the Galloway Hills to the west. A great location, with something to keep everybody occupied.
