About the location

Newton Stewart

Kirkcudbright 28 miles.

The market town of Newton Stewart, famous for its salmon and trout fishing, lies in a superb location between the serene rolling countryside of the Machars to the south and the Galloway Forest Park to the north. The area is steeped in history. The first Christian missionary to Scotland landed at The Machars, founding the first church in AD 397 in Whithorn. The Whithorn Dig Visitor Centre lies on the site and displays material dug up over years of excavations. The beautiful coastline is a mixture of sandy beaches and rocky shores teeming with birdlife. Inland there is superb walking country in the Galloway Hills and Forest Park. Sailing, riding and fishing are all available locally and there are plenty of excellent courses to keep the keen golfer busy.

The cottage was delightful, just what we hoped for. It was peaceful and quiet, with lovely walks for the dog all around. The bed was extremely comfortable, we slept really well. The views were great, all in all a pleasure to be here. We certainly will be back.

Lovely cottage in a great setting. Nice gardens, lovely views and no noise from the main road. Glad we stayed there.

Mrs Lane, Lampeter, August 2013

Our second visit to Nether Barr Farmhouse. It is an idyllic location, and the property with its picture window is ideally placed to enjoy the scenery.

Mr Goddard, Bury St. Edmunds, August 2013

Peaceful, comfortable cottage with super garden. Fantastic view of the river through picture window. Access to coast, hills and forests. Want to return to this property!
