Creetown 2 miles. A delightful, modern, detached cottage situated in the village of Carsluith, near Creetown in the beautiful Dumfries & Galloway region in south west Scotland. With views to the coast, this Creetown cottage is ideal for family or friends wishing to enjoy time together in this diverse and scenic part of the country. All ground floor and appointed to a high standard throughout, this Creetown cottage has three bedrooms, a double, a twin and a single, with the double having an en-suite shower room. The accommodation is completed by a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with French doors opening to the front garden, a perfect spot to enjoy an indulgent breakfast of eggs and smoked salmon, purchased from the neighbouring Galloway Smokehouse, while you enjoy the views across the A75 to the sea beyond. A bench and a south-west facing garden mean you can sit with a refreshing drink and enjoy the open view as you plan your day's activities. Creetown, a small seaport town, is just a few miles along the coast from your cottage and has a shop, pub and Post Office. Just four minutes' walk from the property brings you to a small beach ideal for enjoyable walks and excellent birdwatching, with ospreys in mid summer, while 10 minutes' drive brings you to the beach at Mossyard which boasts small, shallow bays with a wonderful collection of seashells. A short drive from this Creetown cottage brings you to Newton Stewart with an abundance of shops and two large riverside supermarkets, Wigtown, officially designated as Scotland's National Book Town, which boasts numerous shops housing thousands of books, and the National Trust for Scotland's Threave Garden Estate at Castle Douglas. Try boating or windsurfing on Loch Ken, cycling at Kirroughtree on the edge of the Galloway Forest, or river or loch fishing throughout the area. Alternatively, enjoy a round of golf at one of the five courses in the area, visit the whisky distillery at Bladnoch or take a trip to the Isle of Whithorn or St. Ninian's Cave.
