    I have stayed in Drumfad Cottage previously and on this visit I stayed in Drumfad barn, so this review is equally relevant to both properties. The properties have changes hands about 12 months ago, however the new owners are fantastic, they are very welcoming and not at all intrusive. The properties can only fairly be described as immaculate, they are very clean and well equipped, with modern appliances and comfortable furnishings. it is a very peaceful location with lots of attractions, historic sites and towns nearby - Galloway house gardens and shore are well worth a visit. The property is (well controlled) dog friendly, and has an enclosed garden and gates so that children can play safely. Both properties but especially the barn are VERY spacious. The price I paid for our stay in November 2018 for seven nights was very reasonable and to be honest it was less than I expected to have to pay. We had a seven night stay could not find any faults whatsoever we will defiantly return to the barn or cottage and would have no reservations about recommending them to our friends

Port William 2.5 miles. Sitting alongside the owner’s property and surrounded by dairy farmland, these two superb semi-detached cottages sit at the end of a country lane near the coastal village of Port William on the Machars Peninsula in Scotland’s beautiful Dumfries and Galloway. Both have been refurbished and finished to a high standard from old farm buildings and offer excellent accommodation for up to 9 people with the added advantage of an optional interconnecting door (can be locked from both sides so kept locked when properties booked separately).

Walk or cycle in the gorgeous Galloway Hills Forest Park or treat the family to some chocolate at the Cocoa Bean chocolate factory near Twynholm. There is a huge choice of attractions around these superb Galloway cottages offering something for all the family.

About the location


Wigtown 10 miles; Newton Stewart 17 miles.

Dating from the end of the eighteenth century, the fishing village of Port William sits on the east side of Luce Bay on the Machars peninsula in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland. There is much history in the area from early Christian sites through to more recent smuggling activities. The picturesque harbour that dates from the 18th century offers sea angling and is ideal for sailors too. There is a statue of a bronze otter erected in memory of Gavin Maxwell, author of ‘Ring of Bright Water’. His family home, Monreith House, is nearby and Maxwell used to exercise his otter on the beach below the house. Oscar Kokoschka, one of the twentieth century’s best known expressionist painters, spent time here during the Second World War. Today Port William is an attractive fishing village within easy reach of sandy beaches, a 9 hole links course just 2 miles away, walking and cycling in the Galloway hills and the cafés and shops of Wigtown, designated as Scotland’s first Book Town. Carnival Week is traditionally held in the first week in August with a wealth of events and attractions. Nature lovers will be drawn to the many nature reserves in the area as well as the childhood home of Gavin Maxwell at Elrig, just along the coast.
