Originally built in the mid 1800's as a gatekeeper's cottage, South Lodge is now a cosy 2 bedroomed cottage on the edge of the small village of Ringford. The cottage has recently been modernised and extended and now includes a sitting room with wood burning stove, a delightful sunroom, large kitchen/dining room and newly fitted bathroom. There is a double bedroom with a king size oak bed and a further twin bedroom. Patio doors lead to the secluded sunny garden which has a small lawn, lots of shrubs and a barbeque. There are lovely walks right from the front door and a very popular tea room just along the road.
The village of Ringford gives easy access to the local beaches, horse riding, many places of historic interest, the Galloway hills and of course the vibrant town of Kirkcudbright (4 miles). Kirkcudbright is well known for its artistic connections, popular galleries and independent shops. There is an extensive programme of entertainment throughout the year which includes the Jazz Festival, the Summer Festivities, the Arts and Crafts Trail and the Kirkcudbright Tattoo to name but a few!
