Further details outdoors:
The near acre of garden is mainly lawn with a small area of woodland with a range of rhododendrons to provide colourful splashes in early summer and other ornamental shrubs for later colour. The immediate surroundings comprise views over farmland to the south and mature woodland to west, north and east making the garden very sheltered. There is a large patio area adjacent to the cottage with robust wooden outdoor furniture. There is a 'rough' tennis court and a putting green. Bicycles belonging to the owners are kept at the property and guests may borrow them but as their mechanical condition cannot be guaranteed, this is at your own risk.
The cottage's accommodation is all on the ground floor. There is a shallow step between the living/dining room (where the entrance door is located) and the rest of the property. The door to the bathroom may be rather narrow for wheelchair access.

The Dumfries and Galloway region
Dumfries and Galloway is probably Scotland's best kept secret. A region of beautiful countryside, coast and pleasant towns and villages full of interest and history. This is 'Robert Burns' country. He was born and grew up in Ayrshire and later lived and was buried in Dumfries. There is a choice of golf courses within a few miles. Turnberry, which hosted the 2009 British Open Championship is about 60 miles from Rose Cottage.
The Port William area
Set in the gently rolling countryside of the Wigtownshire peninsula, Rose Cottage is one of three properties that comprise the hamlet of Clachan of Myrton. The nearest settlement is Port William approximately 3 miles away.
For those who wish to explore, there is an excellent network of paths, cycleways and quiet country roads that link the area’s small towns, villages and numerous historic and natural features. In early spring, the woodland areas are covered in carpets of snowdrops, then bluebells and in early summer, rhododendrons provide colourful splashes.
For more strenuous walking and cycling, marked trails in the Galloway Hills and Forests are within easy reach with good parking and visitor centres provided. There are three of the ‘Seven Stanes’ off road cycling trails within an hour’s drive of Rose Cottage. In season, salmon fishing is available on the River Bladnoch.
The county town of Wigtown has developed as Scotland’s ‘book town’, with numerous specialist bookshops, arts and craft shops and cafes. The whole area is rich in archaeological sites, including: St. Ninian’s Church at Whithorn (established in the 4th Century); stone circles; Mesolithic and Iron Age forts and castles from the age of Robert the Bruce. In more recent times, Garlieston Bay was used to test the "Mulberry" floating harbours that were so vital to the D-Day landings in 1944.
There are many other places to visit including: the Royal Botanic Garden at Logan; Castle Kennedy; Bladnoch Distillery and day trips to Northern Ireland (Belfast, Giant’s Causeway etc) via the ‘Fast Cat’ ferries from Stranraer. There are beaches less than 4 miles from the cottage.

We stayed for a week and despite the showery weather we had a lovely time. The cottage was clean with all we needed for a comfortable stay. We took advantage of the linen service saving us the bother of carrying extra baggage. Well worth the £20 fee. As the evenings were a little cool we enjoyed having the log fire. We took our dog with us and he enjoyed the large garden and the walks we had round dog-friendly gardens and woods in the area. On the first morning we enjoyed the spectacle of roe deer on the lawn and so checked each morning before letting the dog out. Without the glare of neon city lights we had extraordinary night skies with amazing views of the Milky Way. If you are an amateur astronomer or just someone who like me enjoys looking at the stars, Rose Cottage is the place for you. In order to see the area fully a car is a must.
Thank you for reviewing Rose Cottage. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back in the spring.

What a great time we had at Rose Cottage, despite very mixed weather!, Reminded us of being at home here in Cumbria! Our two dogs LOVED the garden, and didn't want to leave it. Neither did we. The owner had been so thoughtful and basically, it was a home from home - and then some. We would LOVE to live there. We saw two deer in the garden, and the night stars are something else.
Just as a matter of interest, I had no phone signal, and the TV picture, varied with the weather- Not a probem for us
Thank you for providing a review of Rose cottage and to know you love the place as much as we do. We know from the over 100 comments left in the visitor book in the cottage that all our guests share your views but it is so nice to have guests going that extra step to write a review on TripAdviser.
