The Dumfries and Galloway region
This undiscovered corner of south west Scotland in western Galloway is known by its old county name of Wigtownshire. Famous for beef and dairy farming, very little has changed in the past two centuries. It remains one of the least populated areas of the country, you will not be tripping over other visitors - this is not Cornwall or the Lakes, the landscape remains very much unspoilt - few large towns, no motorways, miles of largely deserted beaches and the best local ingredients such as venison, beef, lamb, salmon, oysters and scallops.
However, despite the peace and privacy there is a host of things to occupy your time while staying in one of our luxury holiday cottages in Dumfries and Galloway: visiting the local chocolate factory - children often make careers choices there; experiencing a range of local golf courses - from the quite remarkably beautiful and nearby Portpatrick Dunskey course to the championship courses of Turnberry and Troon in neighbouring Ayrshire; visiting stunning gardens bathed in the Gulf Stream; indulging at the famous ice cream factory; mountain biking on the 7Stanes - a renowned off road cycle track through the forests, and exploring the delightful fishing villages including Portpatrick and Kirkcudbright.
Dumfries & Galloway is bursting with sights to see and activities to get your teeth into during your stay in Corsewall Estate's self catering accommodation. Here are a few suggestions to whet your appetite:
Activities with the Children
The Cocoa Bean Company Chocolate Factory at Twynholm, which runs excellent hands on workshops and has a huge indoor slide, outdoor adventure playground and cafe.
Cream o' Galloway Visitor Centre (locally made award winning ice cream) – with loads of activities from karts, slides, rides, and a woodland adventure playground to farm tours and ice cream experience events near Gatehouse of Fleet.
The Gem Rock Museum at Creetown is a huge favourite with our children. It houses one of the finest collections of gemstones, crystals, minerals, rocks and fossils in the UK.
Logan Fish Pond, located at Port Logan was once the Victorian larder stocked with fish of the nearby Logan House. It is now a fascinating marine life visitor centre.
Galloway Activity Centre situated on the banks of Loch Ken – kayaking, canoeing, archery, outdoor laser quest, climbing/abseiling, windsurfing and even wobble boarding.
Locally, there is pony trekking at Lochnaw Home Farm, near Leswalt. In addition, there is an indoor riding arena at Terally, 30 minutes drive to the south.
Get to grips with the great outdoors during your stay at one of our self catering cottages. The 7Stanes is a series of seven amazing and varied mountain biking centres located across Wigtownshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Dumfriesshire and the Borders in the east. The nearest two to Corsewall are found at Kirroughtree and Glentrool in the Galloway Forest Park near Newton Stewart, a 45 minute drive away.
Garden Cottage is an ideal base to explore the numerous golf courses in Wigtownshire and Ayrshire including the Portpatrick Dunskey course, the Stranraer Golf Club and the Wigtownshire County Golf Club.
For grown ups, the Championship courses of Turnberry and Royal Troon are also within easy drive up the Ayrshire coast, one hour and one and half hours respectively.
Visitors to Wigtownshire often describe it as 'Cornwall but without all the people'. The Rhins of Galloway are endowed with numerous and spectacular beaches from Killantringan and Larbrax to Lady Bay and Sandeel Bay.
Dumfries and Galloway is blessed with a huge range of walks to enjoy during your stay from the spectacular garden and woodland walks at the gardens of Dunskey and Castle Kennedy to those along the coast and upland ones in the Galloway hills.
The Galloway Forest Park offers three visitor centres close to Newton Stewart from where walkers can explore - Kirroughtree, Clatteringshaws and Glentrool. For the ambitious, head for the hills and tackle the Merrick - the south of Scotland's highest peak. Alternatively, there are any number of clearly marked tracks of varying lengths that take you through spectacular Galloway scenery through woodlands, across moorland and by scenic lochs.
There are many beautiful gardens to explore in the local area. Visit Castle Kennedy, Dunskey, Glenwhan, Ardwell Gardens and Logan House – all with their very varied landscapes and plant species. Bursting with exotic colours, they are full of inspiration for keen gardeners or simply beautiful and peaceful places in which to enjoy a relaxing stroll. Port Logan Botanical Gardens is the Royal Edinburgh Botanics' most southerly outpost - and aptly described as 'a plantman's paradise' - is one of the country's most exotic gardens where many varieties of plants from the southern hemisphere flourish warmed by the Gulf Stream.
There are a number of festivals and events held in Dumfries & Galloway throughout the year including:
Spring Fling in May which is Dumfries and Galloway's annual art and craft open studios festival, with over 76 artists taking part in this year's 10th anniversary festival.
The award winning Wickerman Festival in July. Now in its 11th year, it promises to be a diverse line up of music, arts and entertainment for all ages.
And the Wigtown Book Festival (28 September – 7 October 2012) which has grown over the years to become one of the most charming events in the British literary calendar.
Places of Interest
And finally, there are many pretty towns, villages and places of interest to visit during your stay from Portpatrick and the Mull of Galloway to Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. You could even consider a day trip to Ireland.

"The best holiday accommodation and a wonderful location - perfect combination"
Something for everyone here - adults, children and dogs. We had a wonderful week at Garden Cottage on the Corsewall Estate, enjoying everything to the full. The grounds are just fantastic with beautiful views and the Cottage offers excellent facilities. So much to explore (even a walled garden with vegetables and fruits, chickens, a pony and sheep!!) . Our Labradoodles were in doggie heaven and made full use of the extensive grounds. Loved the layout and the furnishings. It felt really special. Beds were so comfortable, my daughter summed it up saying, after the first night, "It was like sleeping on a cloud". We ate in every night just to enjoy the accommodation as much as possible - why go out when you had such appealing surroundings to return to? Can't fault the facilities. We were a group of 5 adults and never once felt on top of each other. The owners, Angus and Kate, are friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. We are already planning a return visit.

"Delightful property and grounds"
Garden cottage is a truly delightful place to stay. The house itself is modern and spacious having all mod cons and everything you need in a holiday home. It is in the west wing of a massive house which is set in acres of land with stunning views and wildlife. We saw red squirrels up at the window ledge and deer just across the lawn. We even got to meet Nautilus the 9 year old pig who lived on the estate. It is a very quiet and peaceful place to stay with plenty of walks. The village is about a 5 min walk but not much there and the local pub The Blue Peter was also very quiet but we made our own entertainment as the house was so big and although the weather was not the best we had a fantastic time. Angus was very friendly and always on hand to suggest what walks to do and Kate regularly topped up the feeders so there were plenty of birds and squirrels to watch. If your looking for a holiday away from it all with plenty of wildlife and walks then Garden cottage is perfect.
Thank you so much for all your kind words - I'm so pleased you had a wonderful break at Garden Cottage. Topping up the feeders for the red squirrels seems to be a full time job at the moment - I'm having a job keeping up with their demanding appetites!

"A hidden jewel"
Everything was excellent- the ease of booking, the accommodation, the gardens and the places close by to visit. I took my elderly Mum and Kate even brought her some flowers from the garden. She also sorted out my laptop! I would highly recommend this and will certainly be booking another break.

"A fantastic retreat"
From the very start, we felt very at home at Garden Cottage - the cottage was beautiful, cozy and fitted out with everything we could have wanted and more! Kate the owner was warm and welcoming when she called personally to check that we had arrived safely, and she had very thoughtfully left a list of pleasant walks around the area. We had a fantastic, relaxing weekend and would definitely stay there again!
Thanks so much for choosing Garden Cottage. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the walks - I'm working on producing a map of the estate walks for your next visit!
