“Knowe” as Carsluith Holiday Lodge is a beautiful secluded, open plan completely off-grid lodge set on a 12 acre small holding, where you can sit and relax in your own wood-fired hot tub and enjoy Galloway’s famous dark skies with views overlooking the Cree estuary. We are pet- friendly (max 2) with a secluded beach just 5 minutes walk away and only 10 minutes drive away from Kirroughtree 7stanes which is a great location for mountain biking trails and forest walks. To note no sockets only usb.

The space
The lodge is completely “off-grid” which means that there is no mains electricity, so no tv, WiFi or sockets to plug in your hairdryer or any other electrical items. Electricity for lighting is sourced from the solar panels on the roof. There are two USB plugs in the bedroom. The Water is sourced from a private spring.
The open plan living area, dining area and kitchen benefits from floor to ceiling windows, taking in the breathtaking views while being warmed by the fabulous log-burning stove.
There is a double sofa bed in the living room that can accommodate 2 extra people with bed linen provided ( an additional £15pppn charge).
The kitchen has a gas oven with grill and hob and a fridge with a small freezer at the top. All pots and pans, dish-ware and kitchen utensils are provided, making it suitable to cook a lovely meal, although there are takeaways nearby.
The dining area has seating for 4 people with views looking out over the Cree estuary.
A beautiful double bedroom with a wooden headboard and matching bedside table and a chest of drawers plus a wall-mounted full-length mirror and peg hooks to hang clothing on. Bed linen and Bathrobes are provided.
Modern bathroom with walk-in rain shower, toilet, basin and mirror. Towels are provided.
The outside has a covered decking area with a table and bench set so you can sit outside and enjoy the view even when the weather isn’t great. The deck then spans around the outside wood fired hot tub making it a nice place to sit and relax and watch the stars.
All wood for the log burning fire and hot tub are provided.
There is free parking at the base of the hill then a pathway leads uphill to the lodge,

Carsluith, Scotland, United Kingdom

If you are looking for a fantastic laid-back getaway in a beautiful location, then Knowe Lodge is ideal for you.
The lodge (Knowe) meaning small hill or hillock was hand built by myself and my husband in 2020. It is our own unique design and runs completely off grid with 4 large solar panels on the roof.
The lodge sits on 12.5 acres of land where we run our smallholding with sheep, chickens and bees and not forgetting the crazy dogs, and offers amazing views across the Cree estuary looking over to Wigtown.
