Dog friendly holiday lodge

Your dog's, dog friendly, holiday home

We welcome well behaved dogs at the lodge and they love it here as there are lots of lovely country, forest, coastal and beach walks close at hand.

Pet welcome

As your pet is welcome we have tried to provide for their needs during their stay. There are stainless steel food/water bowls and scented poop scoop bags provided and you will find an outside tap and hose for muddy paws and a poop shovel for use in the garden.

In case of mishaps we have added dog friendly pump spray products to the cleaning materials. For mishaps and accidents there is Bob Martin Stain & Odour Remover, unique at cleansing and deodorising any pet stains and Bob Martins Disinfectant which kills germs, viruses and bacteria effortlessly and has been formulated to be safe for pets bowls, bottles, homes and litter trays.

Walks and outdoor space

The lodge has a good sized private garden laid mainly to lawn (not a secure garden) and there are walks straight from the door. The information pack contains details of lots of local walks and there are several local beaches where your dog can swim or plodge.

Happy, healthy dogs

In the interests of good housekeeping and animal health we ask all guests holidaying with their dogs to ensure that their pets: vaccinations are up to date, have been recently wormed and have been treated with a flea and tick treatment prior to their stay. This is for the comfort and wellbeing of all our guests (present and future) be they two or four legged and the health of the occasional wild visitors to the garden such as red squirrels, badgers, deer and foxes.

Dogs Welcome Here




" Hello Carole,

Just a quick note to let you know we all have a fantastic time at Riverview. The Lodge is lovely and it's location is beautiful...several moments spent at the lodge made us realise that there is so
much more to life than the daily stresses
we experience at work and such like.
XXX and I stood out on the porch one evening, not a cloud in the sky, no light pollution, all we could see were a
thousand or so stars, it was magnificant.

I trust we left the Lodge in good order,
we made sure we cleaned and vacumed before we left.

Many thanks"


With such a wealth of things to do,
places to go and sights to see close by, it's no surprise that Dumfries & Galloway is described as 'Scotland in Miniature'.

So I decided to start a blog about
life in and around Kippford and Rockcliffe and all the things to see and do in the area. The aim is to share this part of the world with others and provide information for anyone thinking of visiting or for those who wanting to plan their stay.
