“wildlife heaven”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely, well maintained, roomy and well equipped lodge. Quiet surroundings, but teaming with wildlife. Just arrived and filmed a woodpecker on a tree at the back of the lodge. Badgers visited the garden every night. We had brought a large bag of peanuts for birds, but the badgers loved them, and it gave us time to get plenty of good pictures. The balcony was lovely to sit out on, and the lodge was cosy with great central heating. There is tons to do around the area, Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright are great for a wander, the red kite centre is a must, castle and gardens and nice tearooms too. The beach is at the end of the drive and about 50 yards to the left, about 5 minutes stroll.

Excellent area very quiet and tranquil, you do need a car to get around, but there are lots of castles and history around the area, lovely rockpooling and beaches along the coast, on an evening you must keep the patio curtains open because you do get visitors at night, we had a family of Badgers coming to se us every night, it is the first lodge we have ever stayed in and we will be staying in an other one, it was lovely and warm, and homely and the best decision we made to stay at Screel lodge, Thank you for a lovely enjoyable holiday.

I would recommend this lodge to anyone as it is it is set in the most tranquil of locations and five minutes from the beach. The Lodge itself is very large and more than enough space for a family. It is very clean and has everything you need to
ensure you have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are large enough and have ample storage. It also heats in seconds if required so no problems with a winter break. The wildlife is amazing with badgers and red squirrels on your doorstep. For golfers, you are two minutes from clubhouse. All in all a great place and we will definitely return.
