Our Estate is expanding!
We are finally able to fill you in on what’s been happening on the estate!
From new accommodation, memberships, eating and drinking and more.
We are really excited to let you all know that we have now added two new types of lodges to our already diverse range of accommodation options. Two woodland lodges, able to accommodate up to four people each, will open on the 1st of April. The contemporary, open-plan lodges will each have a large living space, kitchen diner area, two impressive bedrooms and will benefit from huge amounts of natural light and surrounding countryside.
An additional hexicabin, named Cedar Cottage, accommodating two people, will combine cottage cosiness with cabin charm making it perfect for romantic getaways. Built from cedar combined with wood from the Estate, the bespoke designed, British built cabin will have a pitched roof and a small patio area. The inside will be bright and spacious with a high ceiling and modern country-style interiors including a warming log fire. The hexicabin will be openening in May.
Each lodge will come with its own private enclosed area complete with a hot tub and views across the Solway.Find out more
