Welcome

Brown Rigg Lodges are ideal for those who want to experience a relaxing self-catering holiday set in a peaceful rural location, with Bellingham Village only a 10-minute walk away. We have four terraced lodges, which are all single storey, housed inside one long cedar clad building. Each Lodge sleeps up to 6 people and they all have 3 bedrooms.

The Lodges are reached via a wide drive from the B6320 which leads into a tarmac and gravel courtyard area. There is a floor plan and photographs of the Lodges and Guest Rooms on their own site pages.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance, please telephone 01434 220390 or email[email protected]
