"Great Scottish getaway"

A home from home, lovely house with a pretty garden, near the beach, well kitted out for cooking big meals. Close to the Dumfries biking trails. If the weather misbehaves it's a pleasant place to chill out. The service on booking was excellent.

"Our home away from home in Scotland !!"

What a place! On approach, the first time, it is like driving up to your own stately home!
Inside it is cosy and comfy. Lovely wood burning stove and all the comforts of your own home! We were there for the Thanksgiving Holiday and we cannot wait to return. Our vacation included 6 people and there was plenty of room for everyone and lots of nooks and crannies for time alone, reading, reflecting or whatever too. The kitchen is great and the common rooms are great for family time and game playing etc.. JUST what we were looking for! Make sure to go for Ice Cream at Cream O Galloway nearby!!

"Fantastic break with friends on the south coast of Scotland"

Great long weekend to get away from the city with a group of friends - we have stayed here 3 times now. The property is a good balance of character and convenience, a great old building, always immaculate upon arrival, well equipped for a group of 8 to cook, dine and lounge. The location is ideal - very close to the coast for super views of the sea, and some great hikes and bike rides. Sitting out in the garden with a glass of wine whilst the sun drops on the sea is a real treat! Nearby towns are well worth a visit, even if just for the fantastic fish and chips and hot smoked salmon! Kirkudbright in particular is well worth a visit, a lovely harbour town with a castle and a few nice art galleries.
Booking is always straightforward and the owners have been very helpful with directions and suggestions for things to do.
