The Lodge

The Sea Cubby is a unique wee holiday lodge overlooking the Solway Firth. It is nestled amongst trees and perched just above the waves with the most beautiful views across to the white sands of Merse Head nature reserve. This is not a holiday park the lodge is private with it's own private driveway, parking and garden. On a clear day you can see across the estuary to the mountains in the Lake District. It’s so peaceful you can really get a restful sleep. A place to escape and relax, by sitting listening to the waves.

The Solway Firth

The Solway Firth (Scottish Gaelic: Tràchd Romhra) is a firth that forms part of the border between England and Scotland, between Cumbria (including the Solway Plain) and Dumfries and Galloway. It stretches from St Bees Head, just south of Whitehaven in Cumbria, to the Mull of Galloway, on the western end of Dumfries and Galloway. The Isle of Man is also very near to the firth. The firth comprises part of the Irish Sea.

The coastline is characterised by lowland hills and small mountains. It has also been used for the location of films such as The Wicker Man, which was filmed around Kirkcudbright and Burrow Head on the Wigtownshire coast.

The Solway Coast was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1964.

The Solway Firth is so when the tide is out you can walk on the sand for miles in both directions and when the tide is in you can paddle and swim in the sea.

At night you can watch the stars and when it’s a full moon the reflection on the water is breath taking. Wake up to roe deer, badgers, Oyster Catchers and the Barnacle Geese that migrate here every winter.
