We cannot praise this cottage highly enough. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and very comfortable. It is full of pretty and thoughtful touches and feels luxurious and cosy. There is a lovely little garden and it feels private and hidden away in the woods. The weather for our week was patchy (as must often be the case) but what is marvellous about this cottage is the free and easy access to Castle Kennedy gardens. As soon as the rain clears, you can, within minutes, be exploring the extensive, varied and beautiful woods, gardens and lochs of Lochinch and Castle Kennedy. We hope to return soon.

We were looking for a quiet break away from everything and this more than met our aim. High quality accommodation and facilities in a fantastic and wonderfully picturesque location a stones throw from the Rhins of Galloway which made for lots of super days out. A perfect break for two!
Balker Lodge is a beautiful property and is beautifully located. The Lochinch Castle estate within which Balker Lodge is situated is truly fabulous, providing many good walks and other outdoor activities. And the lodge itself has been very tastefully refurbished.
