    This is a comfortable lodge in a superb position with fantastic views. The site has a swimming pool and you can eat out there if you’re so inclined. We were blessed with glorious weather so took full advantage of the balcony. As other people have noted some equipment would benefit from updating but this did not spoil our break at all.

    Stayed here for 1 week with my husband, my sister and 4 grandchildren. Helms Deep was well equipped loads of space for everyone. The view over the loch every morning was excellent. There is a TV in every room and the one in the main living area has Netflix. There are loads of DVD's and games also available. Only a 10 minute walk to Sandyhills beach and although the weather was not great the walks along the beach are excellent. We took the children to Mabie Farm Park on one of the good days and it was well worth a visit. Overall we would certainly stay here again.

    We really loved our stay here. It was lovely and quiet and relaxing. It was wonderful to be looking right onto the lake and the animal life was amazing - birds, badgers, bats, foxes, rabbits. The swimming pool was a great addition with an 11 year old and we often had it to ourselves. We used the bar/restaurant often and enjoyed the food. The weather was kind and we had two lovely days on Sandyhills beach which was just a short walk away. The coastline in general was beautiful and we had nice trips to Kippford (nice pub) and Rockcliffe. The lodge itself was great - very big and loved the balcony to sit in the morning or evening. We also liked that it was dog friendly and our spaniel really enjoyed her holiday too. We will definitely be back.
