Description from owner


Brand new to the holiday letting market in 2011, Kenmuir Cottage is a beautifully-presented traditional Galloway home, built in the 1860s and set in its own large private garden. The cottage was lovingly restored by the owners in 2010, and equipped with new furniture throughout, but still retains its rustic charm.

Inside, the cottage boasts a newly-equipped kitchen with solid wood floor, a comfortable living room with Dowling stove, a double bedroom and a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed.

Outside, the cottage has a large fenced private garden, mainly grassed over, where it is lovely to sit and unwind in the sun with a glass of wine, or have a BBQ. There are a few fir trees in the garden to provide a wind break, and a large hedge for privacy. The cottage is situated on a farm road with little passing traffic, and there is a large secure shed where the BBQ set is stored. You can also use it for storing cycles, fishing/walking gear, and outdoor equipment. A small fishing boat can be kept in the garden if required.

From the garden you can see the North Channel with the coast of Ireland in the distance. At night, the dark skies mean you can clearly see the Milky Way, which is not normally visible in towns and cities. There is an abundance of wildlife, including roe deer, owls, hares, swallows, buzzards, hawks, pheasants, grouse and seals.

Local attractions include Logan Botanic Garden, the Mull of Galloway (Scotland's most southerly point), Logan Fishpond, and the villages of Port Patrick and Port Logan with their harbours, shops, and restaurants.

Best of all it is one of the quietest holiday destinations in Scotland.

“Absolutely brilliant - Again”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2017

We have just spent two weeks here and it was our second visit to this very peaceful cottage. It is wonderfully appointed and the owners Jennifer and Forrest are very helpful. All the previous positive reviews say it all. Our aged golden retriever loves it here as well. We intend to return again next year.

“Superb Getaway”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

Following a hectic Xmas period, we wanted a short break offering peace and quiet, coupling countryside with beach where we could walk our springers. Kenmuir cottage fitted the bill exactly and the owners couldnt be more accomodating and friendly. The cottage is as described; well equipped and functional and a nicely situated in rolling hills with just a five minutes walk to the coast. The dark skies are exactly that and indeed the milky way is very visible. We also observed Jupiter and some of its moons through 10*50 binoculars. Overall, lovely place and highly recommended
