Farm based Cottage situated on a private road. The road passes under a beautiful canopy of trees to reach the cottage. Short video below

  All our attention and effort is spent keeping our cottage immaculate.  Less attention is spent on this website !   Still we hope you find it useful.  The surrounding area is beautiful and a great place to stay but visitor comments are your best guide. Most recent comment that visitors have taken time to write in book:

Cottage immaculate as ever:


We have enjoyed our week in this beautifully presented, well equipped and very cosy cottage.

The cottage is situated on a private road which passes through the pastures of the farm and under a canopy of beautiful trees .    It is near the top of a hill surrounded by beautiful landscape with Lock Ken in the distance. It is a great place from which to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Galloway Hills that surround the cottage. The Solway coast is just a short drive away. The cottage is not just a holiday cottage, Paul and I  often stay in the cottage when not being used by visitors.  So we try very hard to keep it a nice place to stay.  Recently completely refurbished.

The cottage has two double bedrooms though they are not big, visitors repeatedly descibe them as comfortable especially beds. The cottage is  furnished with good quality comfortable furniture..  Although in the heart of farm land it is less than 1.5 miles to Castle Douglas, a designated Food Town with many restrauants in and around.

Visitors from Devon to the Highlands and Europe have frequently and kindly described the cottage as: quiet; excellent; well appointed; great location; homely; superb; peaceful; very comfortable; etc. (repeated by almost every visitor who writes in book is a reference to - clean, comfortable and the area generally (beautiful, splendid, idyllic etc)
