About Curlew Lodge

Two bedroom Curlew Lodge is spectacularly situated just 20 yards from the Solway Firth foreshore on the Arbigland Estate to the south of Dumfries. The lodge takes its name from the curlews who frequent the area and is 1 of 3 luxury log chalets slightly set apart and configured differently from the other two. Living space is open plan, bright and contemporary in style, with a cosy woodburning stove and gas central heating, perfect for year round breaks in beautiful Dumfries & Galloway.  Short breaks are available during low season, and Curlew has a covered deck with an orchard of fruit trees surrounding it. Magnificent views from the lodge are across to the Solway Firth and towards Galloway's Criffel mountain.
