Description

Williamwood Cottage is a lovely newly refurbished farm cottage, set in its own secluded garden. A patio with garden furniture leading from the master bedroom is ideal for sunny summer breakfasts. This cottage is ideal for families and is well within walking distance of our new CHILDREN'S PLAY FARM, where we have a variety of minature animals to cuddle. Also within the children's farm is a play area complete with climbing frame, wings, chute and sand pit and for Mum and Dad a picnic area to take in the views over the Solway Coast.

Should you be more inclined to walking, cycling, photography or riding, we have a newly created circular route round the farm, all fenced off from the animals but allowing you to see our highland cattle, sheep and ponies in their natural habitat. These areas are AWARD WINNING CONSERVATION areas and the opportunities to see many species of birds, animals flora and fauna are abundant, we can even let you sit in one of our hides to

The Scotland region

There's a surprise at every turn in Dumfries & Galloway, from discovering inspirational art on a forest walk to getting surprisingly close to red kites and red deer as you explore.

The rugged coastline, sandy beaches and tranquil lochs all look even more stunning as the region basks in glorious sunshine, and the longer days give more time for exploring this wonderful corner of Scotland.

Picture yourself with a loved one, sharing a glorious walk along a quiet beach or sharing a tranquil stroll through Williamwood Cottage's own private wood, Let the stresses of life melt away as you wander through the grounds full of wildlife or cycle along the specially made tracks around the farm.
