Overlooking the Solway Firth and Galloway's Criffel Mountain, Lapwing Lodge sits within our beautiful Arbigland Estate to the south of Dumfries. Perfect for families, the log chalet is just 20 yards from the seashore and features luxury open plan living space with a cosy log burner and an outdoor furnished, covered deck with a BBQ. Lapwing, which is 1 of 3 luxury lodges clustered in the Carse Bay area on our estate, takes its name from the many lapwings or 'peewits' that nest in fields surrounding the log chalets.
Stunning family friendly sandy beaches on the Colvend Coast are nearby, and the lodge is only a 5 minute walk along the beach from The Steamboat pub in Carsethorn. The estate offers numerous opportunities for wildlife watching and birdwatching. Activities only minutes away include mountain biking on 7 Stanes Trails and golf at world class Southerness golf links. Guests are welcome to bring their own horse along - stabling facilities are available in the livery yard at nearby South Carse equestrian centre.
Short breaks (minimum 2 night stays) are offered during low season. Lapwing Lodge is available to book all year round, and is one of three luxury lodges in our Carse Bay area on the estate. We also have a further selection of cottages and farmhouses in the wider estate - extended family group bookings, weddings parties, corporate events and film crews are all warmly welcomed. Self-catering accommodation across the estate offers over 30 beds, ideal for large group bookings. Find out more on our website, or please do call us direct for more information.
Our Carse Bay lodges, including Lapwing, are easily reached just off the Solway A710 Coast road from Dumfries. Pass through Islesteps and New Abbey, past the village shop on your left. Take the turning off the A710 to Kirkbean village, continuing on through the village towards Carsethorn. Go over a stone bridge across a burn, then take a next right signposted Arbigland Farm Deliveries and Carse Bay Chalets. Take the first left turn down a farm track, and the chalets are at the end on the left.
