Balmaghie Dog Friendly Holiday Lodges would like to welcome you to our three comfortable, well equipped lodges. There are three lodges, all with 6ft solid fenced gardens. There is also an 18 acre, 6ft fenced wood, each lodge has their own padlock to put on the gate, so they have the woods to themselves. We are very well adapted for reactive dogs. You can leave your dogs at the lodge if you wish to go somewhere which does not allow dogs.

We are set in a beautiful part of Scotland, with excellent woodland walks and lots of lovely, quiet dog friendly beaches. Castle Douglas is a food town, there are plenty of dog friendly places to eat and an array of butchers and bakers!

Balmaghie really means dog friendly, safe and secure outdoor area, lovely lodges and the dogs can sit on the sofa with me. An excellent secure and lovely woodland with sole use for your dogs, in beautiful surroundings and the hosts are so friendly and make your stay really special.

Evelyn Mee, August 2020

This is the most dog friendly place I have ever stayed. Great, comfortable lodges with no restrictions on where your dogs can go, each lodge is in its own very secure large wildlife garden ideal and safe for dogs to explore and each lodge is able to make use of a large secure woodland area where you can have sole use for you and your dogs meaning even anti social dogs can run free off their leads safely - can’t wait for our next visit in November

Wendy Good, August 2020

Lovely comfortable lodges, quiet, rural location but only 5 miles from nearby town which has abundance of restaurants, takeaways and shops. There’s a huge large, totally private and secure fenced woods which you have sole use of. No charge for dogs and no limit on the amount of dogs permitted. The two ladies who run this facility are welcoming and friendly and can’t do enough to help you.
