The area is widely known as Scotland's French Riveria with outstanding local scenery, wonderful coast line and cycling routes.

Abbeybank Lodge, New Abbey, near Dumfries, Dumfries and Galloway

New Abbey is one of Scotland's most beautiful villages - picture postcard charming and quirky. The coast is close by with a choice of beautiful sandy beaches, the beautiful bays nearby including Southerness and Rockcliffe. There is numerous historical sites, a country pub, shop, café, famous links golf course, fishing, mountain biking, walking (including the steps up to the Waterloo Monument, and the prominent Criffel Hill (1871ft), with rewarding views from the summit).

For golfers, the world famous links course at Southerness, with both nine and eighteen hole golf courses, alongside a remote headland from where you can see the mountains of the Lake District on the opposite side of the Solway Firth.

7 Stanes mountain bike trails with the world-class trails is very close - forest tracks and exhilarating downhill trails suiting all abilities. The 13th century remains of Sweetheart Abbey, and the Shambellie Walled Garden (a weed choked walled garden abandoned in the 1960s has been brought back to life) are great to visit.

The countryside is amazing, a very unspoilt south west corner of Scotland. Deserted beaches, forests, woodland and beautiful lochs, with few tourists. Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree is a small market town to the west, popular area for walkers and cyclists close to the Galloway Forest Park with 150,000 acres of forest land with trekking and cycling trails. Loch Lochruttan and Loch Arthur are local beauty spots, ideal for some fishing or a picnic. Southerness and Rockcliffe beaches on the Solway coastal path are within easy reach, great for swimming when the tide is up.

Gardens, beaches and golf with group accommodation, New Abbey stores, The New Abbey Tearoom, The Abbey Arms, the historic buildings of Sweetheart Abbey and The Corn Mill.
