  • "I spent 3 nights at Woodend and from the moment I arrived I felt welcomed."

    The cottage is not luxurious but really comfortable and well equipped. Being on a no through road and beside the forest, it was peaceful and easy to walk without taking the car. For me this was the perfect cottage.

    Thank you for your positive comments. We are very pleased you felt welcomed and found the cottage comfortable, that is our aim. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

The property

Settled in the centre of the quaint town of Dalbeattie in Kirkcudbrightshire is this delightful semi-detached house, Wood End.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Wood End is a charming pet-friendly base for an idyllic getaway to Scotland, with easy access to the Solway Coast and Dumfries.

Be charmed by the homely kitchen, which has all you need to prepare delicious treats for your guests, gather around the dining room table as you toast to a wonderful holiday.

After a hearty meal, retire to the plush sofa to put your feet up in front of the open fire and select for your favourite TV show to enjoy for the evening.

As the evening grows darker, head to the first floor where you will find two nicely decorated bedrooms, a double and a twin, ensuring suitable sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Start the day with a refreshing shower before preparing morning coffee for your guests to enjoy in the garden, surrounded by the lush countryside and birdsong.

Get to know the local area with a stroll into the village, where you will find a variety of restaurants, perfect if you don’t fancy cooking one evening, the Dalbeattie Forest Town Wood where you can enjoy a romantic walk with your loved one and pooch or enjoy the scenery at Plaintain Loch over a freshly prepared picnic.The cottage is right next to the forest, and the 7Stanes mountain bike trail is on your doorstep to enjoy.

Venture further with a trip to the town of Kirkcudbright, where you can brush up on the local history at the Stewartry Museum, admire the local art in the Kirkcudbridge Galleries and Harbour Cottage Gallery and stroll down to see the moored boats at the Kirkcudbridge Marina, with exceptional views looking out over the Dee and the town itself.

If you can tear yourself away, be sure to make a stop a Dumfries, where you will find the Robert Burns Centre and Robert Burns House, both of which celebrate the famous wordsmith with a series of interactive exhibits.

Wood End makes for a wonderful break with loved ones at any time of the year.

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.
