Everything was lovely, very much as described. Pretty area, nice tidy room, helpful nice people, great food, flexible attitude. Dining and common room had a pool table, loads of books and CDs, tons of tourist and local info. Everything great, nothing out of place. I'd come back, and I recommend it to others. Good access to the Wigtown Book festival, and great value for this area.

Very highly recommended! I recently enjoyed a delightful stay with Anne and Bob while travelling on my own, staying for one week. By the time I left, I felt Castlewigg Lodge was my home from home. Both Anne and Bob are very friendly and generous and warmly welcomed me when I arrived (much later in the day than I expected). They are attentive, engaging and a mine of information on the the area (and more!). My single room was clean, fresh and very comfortable. Anne's cooking is delicious and I felt thoroughly spoilt with the choice of homemade and local produce. I have been to Whithorn/Wigtown a number of times and feel the Lodge is in a great asset to the area. I am already looking forward to my next visit!

I've been absolutely delighted. Anne & Bob are great hosts, we've been warmly welcomed and a lot of effort was put into making our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is big, it's located in remote area an the neighbourhood is very quiet - perfect for few days' getaway (check the guidebook link on airbnb, it's a nice trip planning helper). The room (with built-in bathroom) was very clean, you go in there and it makes you want to behave properly out of basic respect (the luggage mats are an awesome idea). It takes a while to get used to showers with separate switch but I've seen it in other places in Scotland too so I guess it's standard :) Towels, soap & shower gel, coat hangers... it's all available. Wide selection of tea & coffee, Anne was honestly interested in our trip & needs, she genuinely was doing everything to make us feel at home. Shame we could have stayed for only 1 day. The breakfast... absolutely massive selection. I thought I knew what to expect from "full Scottish"... I was wrong. Very tasty food topped up with good wholemeal bread and home made jam / honey... You will feel like you're being spoilt by your grandma! And last but not least - lots of good books on the shelves if you need to pass some time and simply relax.

An absolutely delightful experience. A warm and welcoming B&B nicely situated in a quiet location with a kind and considerate host. My room was clean and tidy and the bed extremely comfortable. With a spacious well appointed common area to relax and enjoy, plenty of parking space and easy access to both the coast and inland local attractions Castlewigg Lodge is ideal for exploring all that the area has to offer. Should you need advice on where to go and what to see you'll get it and, should you choose to indulge in Anne's cooked breakfast which is heartily recommended, you will be not be disappointed and truly be set for a day of exploring! I have no hesitation in awarding five stars to not only the accommodation and the location but also to the genuinely friendly couple who run it.
