    The place was beautifully decorated, had a great location for shops and to explore from. The owner had great communication and was very friendly when we spoke to him with a quick question. I really felt at home in this Cottage, definitely a place I would recommend and come back too.

The property

Castle Douglas 1.2 miles.

Hardhills Cottage is a stylish, two-bedroom bungalow nestled rurally near Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway.

Enjoy breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside as you step into the open-plan living area, with a hot tub at your disposal for soothing relaxation, and a contemporary, fully-equipped base for easing your self-catered stay as a family of four.

Arrive to a private driveway, with plenty of space to park up, before stepping indoors and making your way to the heart of the home, the living space, complete with a sleek kitchen, a handy breakfast bar, and plush seating, enveloping a lovely woodburning stove for those cooler evenings.

Next door you will locate a convenient utility, a suntrap conservatory, and the formal dining room, perfect for entertaining, before finishing the evening with a game of pool and a tipple.

If the weather allows, carry the conversation outside, with a private decked area to take advantage of, complete with a barbecue, plenty of furniture, and an indulgent hot tub, a haven for relaxation whilst the stars appear overhead.

As you move through the cottage, you will discover two tastefully decorated bedrooms, a king-size with an en-suite walk-in shower and a twin with Smart TV, the latter serviced by a sleek bathroom with both a bath and a walk-in shower.

Come morning, enjoy a fresh coffee and delve into a chapter of a good book from the conservatory, before heading to one of the beautiful local beaches nearby Sandy hills, Rockcliffe or Kippford and enjoy a long walk with breath taking scenery .

Head to the nearby market town of Castle Douglas where you can browse the boutique shops and a plethora of independent stores that offer a wide variety of Scottish produce, with Threave House and Garden, and Threave Nature Reserve nearby.

For further exploration, why not venture to Kirkcudbright, the ‘artist’s town’, home to a range of galleries and shops, or enjoy an afternoon near the harbour, overlooking River Dee.

Escape to Dumfries and Galloway with a stay at Hardhills Cottage.

About the location


Dalbeattie 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 9.5 miles; Dumfries 18 miles.

The small village of Castle Douglas nestles amongst lush woodland and remains much as it was when it was a thriving inland port servicing Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas. Today, fishing and pleasure craft use the small harbour near the Solway Coast, and the village offers brightly coloured houses, a shop, Post Office, café/restaurant and a pub. Auchencairn, just along the coast, is a wonderful example of an unspoilt traditional Scottish village and spectacular coastal and forest walks surround the village, offering open views across the Solway Estuary with its cliffs, beaches, hills and islands. The nearby towns of Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright offer a full range of amenities, and this is an ideal location for exploring the Solway Coast, the forests and hills of Galloway, the 7stanes mountain biking trails and the superb Dark Skies on offer in this delightful corner of Scotland.
