About june Cherry
My husband and I have owned Cherry Lodge since 2006 We have always loved Scotland and decided to buy the lodge to visit our family who live not far away. We are Dog lovers and love to walk the miles of tracks around our area. Any help you may need re touring, places of interest, dog friendly pubs etc. We are here to help just give me a ring.
june Cherry purchased this Chalet in 2006
Why june Cherry chose Dumfries and Galloway
Dumfries and Galloway is a lovely rural area with great roads. Dumfries town is approx 6 miles away so in the unlikely event of bad weather!! We can always enjoy the cinema theatre, and shopping in town Getting to the lodge is a breeze! Our journey from North West England couldn't,t be simpler Straight up the motorway which is lovely driving in itself Then along the Solway coast, takes us about 3 hours with a short stop at Tebay services (excellent) Most people going to Scotland head off north without giving Dumfries a thought ,but it is a lovely area without the traffic,midges,(mostly!) and generally near the coast has a mild and clement climate.
What makes this Chalet unique
The Lodge is very conveniently situated for getting into town (6miles 10 mins) for shopping . M&S and Debenhams are there. There is a great new swimming pool and sports centre. Historic castles and building around about The nearest beach is about 20 easy driving minutes away at Sandyhills That is one thing you will really notice about this area.The roads are great with very little traffic even in Summer. It's really a treat to drive out Cherry Lodge is child and doggy friendly being completely detached with an enclosed fenced garden and paved area and surrounded by rural farmland rolling hills There is a ramped access to the front door for wheelchair users and mobile phone reception is reasonably good We hope to have wifi in Spring 2014

Not so much a Holiday Home but a Home from Home
Lovely homely lodge. Impressions of the owner staying here on a regular basis as everything we expected and much much more was in the Lodge. Very warm and cosy in winter. We were here over 'one of the coldest nights' of the year but it's very easy to keep the lodge warm. Full size cooker and fridge with small freezer compartnent. Plenty of implements to cook with. Good sized TV with plenty of channels. Spare blankets in the wardrobes (well needed for us as we don't use heating in bedrooms). Comfortable supportive pillows - not always a given. Easy, 5 minute walk to the woods, away from all traffic, so ideal if you have dogs with you. Good communication from the owner and all queries answered quickly. We found the lodge to be very good value for money, as it has everything you need for a week's stay for the same price as a long weekend in a hotel or even a caravan. Although compact, it never felt small or crowded for 4 of us plus 2 large dogs.
A beautiful cosy well equipped lodge with stunning views
We all (2 adult 2 teens & ozzy the akita) had an awesome time at cherry lodge. It was so warm & cosy & made an excellent base for our daily trips. Beautiful beaches a short driving distance away and all set in fabulous countryside. Would definitely recommend this place and will be returning next year!
