Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car not necessary
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Nestled in the rolling Galloway hills, the Old School is a luxury 4 bedroomed, detached, Victorian former school which has been renovated to a high standard and extended to form a spacious, light and airey cottage. With all the comforts of home and beautiful views, the house has a large, well appointed kitchen/dining room with a lovely pillar box red Aga, a rangemaster range cooker and a sleek black glass side-by-side American fridge. The large, comfortable living room has a Jotul wood burning stove, beautiful views across the valley and french windows leading to the central courtyard garden. For rainy days the lounge has a 40" LCD TV, DVD, Wii with various games, and books and games aplenty. The Old School has wireless internet access, and music systems with CD players, tuners and ipod docks.

We like to operate a 'turn up & sit down' policy. This means you'll find at least a small supply of all the basics on your arrival so you can just turn up and sit down for the first day of your holiday. Why not have your holiday groceries delivered to you by one of the main supermarkets?
