A delightful detached bungalow settled near the coast in the village of Colvend, Croftdean offers contemporary accommodation for six guests in Dumfries and Galloway.

Enjoying a large garden, off-road parking and several living areas, Croftdean has all the home comforts you need and is within easy reach of Dalbeattie and the Galloway Forest Park further afield.

Park up on the gated drive before entering into the spacious hallway entrance with a bench for taking off boots before getting settled in.

Discover a spacious sitting room featuring large patio doors offering luscious countryside views along with two large sofas, a woodburning stove and a TV.

Unwind in here before finding the kitchen, equipped with all the essential appliances you need in here and in the utility room housing a washing machine, while the lovely dining room is where you can come together to tuck into your home-cooked feast.

Choose from three charming sleeping spots including a twin, a double and a master double which benefits from an en-suite shower room, while the other rooms are served by the family bathroom featuring a bath and a separate walk-in shower to freshen up in.

Spend time outside in the large enclosed garden, perfect for letting your canine companion stretch their legs as you sip a morning coffee taking in the sights and sounds of the area.

Just around the corner from your delightful dwelling are two gorgeous beaches, Sandyhills Beach and Port o'Warren Beach, each with golden sands and stunning views, perfect for sunny coastal walks.

Visit the nearby Bainloch Deer Park, home to seven species of deer, it's perfect for animal enthusiasts and set within tranquil scenery.

The village of Colvend is home to a local shop for picking up any ingredients for your cooking along with a local café, Treats and Eats Café, while pubs and restaurants can be found north in Dalbeattie around six miles away.

Head to the world-class mountain biking 7stanes centre in Dalbeattie for a great day of forest scenery and thrilling rides, suitable for any ages and abilities with trails to suit beginners right through to experts!

Enjoy a guided tour of Buittle Castle on the western side of the River Urr before sitting down for afternoon tea, or visit Threave Garden, a Victorian-era park set in the grounds of a Scottish baronial mansion.

Further afield in the Nith Valley is Drumlanrig Castle, a dramatic 17th century castle with lavish interiors and a notable art collection, surrounded by woodland to walk and explore.

The Galloway Forest Park is another gorgeous setting to explore, as is the coast and the town of Kirkcudbright.

About the location


Castle Douglas 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 13.5 miles; Dumfries 14 miles.

The attractive country town of Dalbeattie nestles in the south west of Scotland. The town sits within a wooded valley on the River Urr and provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast with its miles of beaches and pretty fishing villages. Dalbeattie is originally known for its granite quarry, which exported stone all over the world, most notably for the Eddystone Lighthouse and Thames Embankment. Today it is renowned for its outdoor activities with the world famous 7stanes mountain biking complex nearby as well as forest walks in Glentrool, where you can follow in the footsteps of Richard Hannay in The Thirty Nine Steps. Dalbeattie and the surrounding area offer panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Lake District and the Galloway Hills. A great location, which has something for everyone.
