RIVERVIEW LODGE: An eco friendly holiday choice

Constructed of natural Cedar, the lodge is both eco friendly and sustainable. The electric heaters provide back-up for the toasty warm wood burning stove making it an energy efficient home to heat. A timed, on-demand water heater, low energy chrome towel warmer and low energy lightbulbs add to it's sustinability.

The private grounds, which are laid mainly to grass with a collection of native species and specimen trees, provide a haven for many forms of wildlife and you will see many species of birds as well as occasionally Red Squirrels, Deer, Badgers, Toads, Foxes and tiny Woodmice. During the high Summer months the lawn to the front of the lodge (see image above) is left to follow it's natural state and form a wild flower meadow.

In 2012 we provided Original Source Bath and Shower products for our guests.

Last year, to celebrate our Scottish location and our commitment to natural products, the complementary toiletries at Riverview Lodge were sourced from Arran Aromatics.

In keeping with the eco friendliness of the lodge this year we are providing natural products from The Body Shop. This is because they are natural, Fair Trade, Cruelty Free and smell delicious, as well as doing you good. There will be hand wash, shower gel and handcream from the The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss range (depending on availability).

Our commitment to the environment also extends to the cleaning products. For 2014 guests we will be providing:
Ecover - Washing up liquid.
Good Housekeeping approved, reabsorbed into nature, plant and mineral based and no unnecessary chemicals

Naturally Powered – cleaning products
Developed with Eco experts, plant derived cleaning products, 100% recycled bottle, dermatalogically tested.

Availability information
Riverview Lodge is available to rent all year round. During low season months Riverview Lodge is sometimes unavailable due to upgrading and maintenence.

Come stay in our holiday cottage, Kippford, Dumfries and Galloway. A log cabin, self catering cottage in Scotland, set in a wooded setting with balcony, a spectacular sea view and cosy log burning stove. Perfect self catering holiday accommodation for a short break, summer holidays or an adventure family holiday.

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.

" 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"
