  • “Track running along side cottage used by forestry commission and lorries travel at speed and this should be made aware of for people with children and dogs.”

    Not in cottage information when booked. We were also perturbed to find that CCTV cameras were running all the time and found this intrusive and felt we were being spied on.

About the property

Set in 11 acres of private land on the fringe of Galloway Forest Park, our secluded country retreat features a picturesque location overlooking forests and hills, still waters of a private loch and wild green meadows Well-suited for families or travellers, this retreat is the perfect opportunity to simply unwind and is a great base for those wishing to explore.

The kitchen/diner has been designed to an exceptional standard, with a dining table for six people and idyllic front-facing views.

There are some lovely finishing touches to the layout, including a wine rack and a breakfast bar for those early morning refreshments.

A cosy night can be spent in the homely lounge, a light and airy place to relax, with a wall-mounted TV, and a collection of seating to make you feel right at home.

A king-size bedroom is situated on the ground floor, elevated by south-facing forest views, whilst the two further bedrooms are accessed by the characterful staircase, with its wonderful stone feature wall.

The rooms boast pure attention to detail, with low ceilings and an all-round neutral tone to enhance your sleeping experience.

This same calming ambience continues through to the snug, with you able to spend time curled up with a good book whilst watching the flames flicker and dance in the large log fire; enjoy the panoramic views surrounding the property while you sip refreshments to the sound of nature.

Two shower rooms complete the interior, designed to a standard of quality, from start to finish.

The property is blessed with an abundance of wildlife on its door step with regular sightings of Pine martins, Otters, Deer and many birds of prey such as Buzzards, Tawny owls and Barn owls to name but a few.

Venturing further afield, explore the many attractions and activities that the Galloway forest, towns and coast line has to offer, finally when evening falls, gaze in wonder at the amazing stars and constellations this dark sky's location offers.

For something different, there are plenty of courses to keep the keen golfer busy.

A real chance to get away from it all.
