The property

Sat amongst an exquisite Victorian house turned Guest House, this charming annexe is the perfect place to base your romantic retreat to Scotland.

Positioned just a short walk from the amenities of ‘Scotland's National Book Town’ Wigtown, you’re ideally placed for uncovering some of the most scenic spots in Scotland.

Inside you will find a gleaming contemporary-styled dwelling, holding an open-plan living space which makes a lovely area for unwinding and spending quality time with your loved one.

Within the main social space, you will find a modern gleaming kitchen, boasting an integral fridge and sleek worktops, this area is home to all of the utensils you could need to prepare a romantic meal to be enjoyed around the dining table with a glass of wine in hand.

The sitting area holds a plush sofa and a 50" smart TV where you can recline into the evening and unwind in between exploring the delights of Scotland.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to the super king-size-bedroom where you will be greeted by a spectacular spot, with high ceilings and stylish furnishings, and another 50" smart TV, this room is sure to have you feeling like real royalty.

Enjoy a relaxing soak in the bathroom before beginning your day’s adventure, or enjoy the benefit of a separate walk-in shower to refresh ahead of a formal dining experience at the nearby local hotel.

A hearty Scottish breakfast and home cooked evening meals are available in the adjacent fully licenced Guest House on request.

Take a stroll into Wigtown to uncover its wonder, best known for its status as Scotland’s National Book Town, here you will find an area rich in literature with plenty of quaint shops to accompany it.

Explore the towns parks and the nearby historical landmark of Martyr’s Stake, play a round of golf, or enjoy a romantic stroll along the coast.

Slightly further afield is the gateway to the Galloways; Newton Stewart, offering its own delightful attractions and access into the glorious lands of Galloway Forest Park, the largest forest and the first 'Dark Sky Park' in the UK, it’s well-worth a visit.
