Location description from owner

The Scotland region

This undiscovered corner of south west Scotland in western Galloway is known by its old county name of Wigtownshire. Famous for beef and dairy farming, very little has changed in the past two centuries. It remains one of the least populated areas of the country, you will not be tripping over other visitors - this is not Cornwall or the Lakes, the landscape remains very much unspoilt - few large towns, no motorways, miles of largely deserted beaches and the best local ingredients such as venison, beef, lamb, salmon, oysters and scallops.However, despite the peace and privacy there is a host of things to occupy your time while staying in one of our luxury holiday cottages in Dumfries and Galloway: visiting the local chocolate factory - children often make careers choices there; experiencing a range of local golf courses - from the quite remarkably beautiful and nearby Portpatrick Dunskey course to the championship courses of Turnberry and Troon in neighbouring Ayrshire; visiting stunning gardens bathed in the Gulf Stream; indulging at the famous ice cream factory; mountain biking on the 7Stanes - a renowned off road cycle track through the forests, and exploring the delightful fishing villages including Portpatrick and Kirkcudbright.

It is now a fascinating marine life visitor centre.Galloway Activity Centre situated on the banks of Loch Ken – kayaking, canoeing, archery, outdoor laser quest, climbing/abseiling, windsurfing and even wobble boarding.Locally, there is pony trekking at Lochnaw Home Farm, near Leswalt.

“The best holiday accommodation and a wonderful location - perfect combination”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2014

Something for everyone here - adults, children and dogs. We had a wonderful week at Garden Cottage on the Corsewall Estate, enjoying everything to the full. The grounds are just fantastic with beautiful views and the Cottage offers excellent facilities. So much to explore (even a walled garden with vegetables and fruits, chickens, a pony and sheep!!) . Our Labradoodles were in doggie heaven and made full use of the extensive grounds. Loved the layout and the furnishings. It felt really special. Beds were so comfortable, my daughter summed it up saying, after the first night, "It was like sleeping on a cloud". We ate in every night just to enjoy the accommodation as much as possible - why go out when you had such appealing surroundings to return to? Can't fault the facilities. We were a group of 5 adults and never once felt on top of each other. The owners, Angus and Kate, are friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. We are already planning a return visit.

“Delightful property and grounds”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

Garden cottage is a truly delightful place to stay. The house itself is modern and spacious having all mod cons and everything you need in a holiday home. It is in the west wing of a massive house which is set in acres of land with stunning views and wildlife. We saw red squirrels up at the window ledge and deer just across the lawn. We even got to meet Nautilus the 9 year old pig who lived on the estate. It is a very quiet and peaceful place to stay with plenty of walks. The village is about a 5 min walk but not much there and the local pub The Blue Peter was also very quiet but we made our own entertainment as the house was so big and although the weather was not the best we had a fantastic time. Angus was very friendly and always on hand to suggest what walks to do and Kate regularly topped up the feeders so there were plenty of birds and squirrels to watch. If your looking for a holiday away from it all with plenty of wildlife and walks then Garden cottage is perfect.

Thank you so much for all your kind words - I'm so pleased you had a wonderful break at Garden Cottage. Topping up the feeders for the red squirrels seems to be a full time job at the moment - I'm having a job keeping up with their demanding appetites!

“Lovely short family break”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

Top quality accommodation in beautiful estate . One of the best self catering properties we have stayed in. Large ,spacious & furnished to a very high standard . Owners were extremely helpful & friendly . Would recommend visits to Logan Botanical Garden , Castle Kennedy & Port Patrick, which are all within easy driving distance. Overall excellent short break for our extended family.

So pleased you had a lovely time at Corsewaall and thank you for all your kind comments.

“A hidden jewel”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

Everything was excellent- the ease of booking, the accommodation, the gardens and the places close by to visit. I took my elderly Mum and Kate even brought her some flowers from the garden. She also sorted out my laptop! I would highly recommend this and will certainly be booking another break.

“A fantastic retreat”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

From the very start, we felt very at home at Garden Cottage - the cottage was beautiful, cozy and fitted out with everything we could have wanted and more! Kate the owner was warm and welcoming when she called personally to check that we had arrived safely, and she had very thoughtfully left a list of pleasant walks around the area. We had a fantastic, relaxing weekend and would definitely stay there again!

Thanks so much for choosing Garden Cottage. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the walks - I'm working on producing a map of the estate walks for your next visit!
