About the Lodge
A holiday with a difference, situated in beautiful East Ayrshire, Glen Bay Lodge offers a spacious 2 bedroom accommodation with a private hot tub and central heating on a 75 acre private and peaceful rescue animal sanctuary.
The lodge is fully equipped for all your self catering needs with a kitchen kitted out with everything you should need including oven, microwave, fridge, counter freezer, dishwasher, toaster, air fryer and kettle. On arrival you will be welcomed with complimentary tea and coffee as well as some colourful fresh farm chicken eggs from the farm's rare breed ladies. The open plan living area has a flat-screen TV and DVD player. Through the door from the open plan lounge leads towards the two bedrooms, one Superking and one twin as well as the bathroom with walk in shower.
The West facing terrace with garden furniture or the private hot tub are perfect for sitting in and watching the busy bird life, animals and stunning sunsets across the fields from. Around 40 species of birds have been recorded as living on or around the farmland so it is a perfect vantage point to spotting them whilst relaxing on the terrace or in the hot tub. There is a firepit/BBQ that you are welcome to use, how about toasting some marshmellows under the stars? There may even be some cheeky animals in the fields right next to the lodge who will entertain you as you relax in the hot tub bubbles! (Please note the animals may not always be in these fields as the land needs resting during certain seasons).
Once evening arrives, why not relax in the electric hot tub watching the clear skies at night? Being only 20 minutes from the Galloway Forest Park the starry skies are incredible to lie back and gaze up in wonder at on clear nights. There's also plenty to do indoors with the smart tv, dvd player, 4g wifi, board games (more available on request) and books to keep you entertained.
Walks can be taken straight from the door through the yard, seeing some of the animals on your way, down to the the farm's own section of the beautiful river Nith. Why not make up a picnic and take the picnic blanket provided down with you to relax by the river? Fishing is available (During open season and upon request, equipment not supplied) and the river is teaming with Salmon, Trout and Pike. The farmland is full of wildlife, incl birds of prey (can you spot Bob, the resident Buzzard!), Grey herons, Roe deer, Kingfishers and otters. A haven for bird watchers and photographers or those who just love animals & peace!
If you'd like to get more involved with the farm you are welcome to let Cat know and she can organise for you to come around with her feeding some of the animals. Pony Pampering sessions are available as is bottle feeding some of the young ones during certain seasons. There is always plenty to do!
