About Castlewigg Lodge

Castlewigg Lodge was built in 1830 as a 'Dower House' for Castlewigg Manor House.  One of it's most famous previous occupants was author of 'Ring of Bright Water' Gavin Maxwell's Grandfather, the Rt. Hon. Sir Herbert Eustace Maxwell, 7th Baronet of Monreith, who lived here after he was married aged 21 until he inherited the Monreith Estate after his father died eight years later.

There are three comfortable en-suite guest rooms; a family room and double room on the first floor and a twin room on the ground floor.  All our rooms have free WiFi, wall mounted flat screen TVs, tea & coffee making facilities, and a hair dryer. Laundry, ironing and drying facilities are also available.

We have a large garden, log fire, dark skies, a relaxed attitude, peace and tranquillity in abundance, and there is a full size pool table, dart board, board games and lending library in the guest lounge.

You can book online, or email or phone.  No prepayment required.
