Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice Award 2020.

Scottish Thistle Awards 2017 - winner "Best Accommodation Provider West of Scotland.

Sleeps 10.

Offering 3 night (Friday to Monday) and week long (Friday to Friday) breaks, Forest Way is an award-winning, stunning 5* luxurious cottage sitting on the banks of the White Loch, with spacious grounds, ample secure parking protected by CCTV, private HOT TUB and a relaxing boathouse.

Furnished and equipped to cater for your every need and with a variety of activities within a short drive.

The winner of Countryfile's 'Holiday Destination of the Year 2016', Dumfries and Galloway has it all and your holiday home is at the heart of it.

The famous 7 Stanes Cycle Route, the home of the Solway Yacht Club at Kippford, and one of Scotland's top 50 golf courses at Southerness are less than 15 minutes away, while less than a mile away is Colvend Golf Course, 'Scotland's Friendliest Club'. The National Trust calls Rockcliffe 'one of Scotland's prettiest stretches of coastline', perfect for exploring. Add in the amazing variety of wildlife at Caerlaverock, and the ultimate in love stories at Sweetheart Abbey and you have everything for your perfect holiday right on your doorstep.

The 5 bedroomed house is furnished to the highest standard and equipped with a Sonos Sound System in all rooms. All bedrooms are en-suite with luxurious bed linen and sumptuous towels. The property is only available for exclusive use so the grounds and features are yours alone to enjoy during your stay. Ideal for a group of friends or that special family occasion, either sharing a meal in the large dining kitchen, watching a film in front of a roaring log fire or enjoying a quiet Sunday morning reading the papers in the Snug, there is something for everyone. The landscaped gardens lead down to the loch where you have your own private boathouse with relaxed seating area and bar, you can fish from the jetty or just simply relax in the hot tub and watch the sun go down.

We think the secret to a happy holiday for a large group is to have something for everyone. Within minutes you can go fishing, cycling, golfing, sailing, walking, and so much more. Or simply pull up a chair on the jetty, relax and look out for the swans, cormorants or even an elusive otter. Remember, you have your own Scottish loch at the bottom of your garden!

The house has a MAXIMUM occupancy of 10 guests.

The house has oil-fired central heating, Sonos music system in all rooms (download the Sonos Controller app to you smart phone before your visit), and comprises:

Thank you Lisa Marie for such a nice review. It is great to hear that you had such an enjoyable time in the house. The game nights around the dining table sounded like fun. We are very lucky to live in such a lovely part of the world and it is always nice when guests come and enjoy it as much as we do. So glad you had such a good time and we would love to see you all again sometime in the future. All the best, Robert and Pam
