Located on the historic Corsewall Estate, High Clachan Farmhouse has recently been fully restored and renovated. This luxury self catering house comfortably accommodates eight people and during the low season, we do special rates for four people too. All the bedrooms and public rooms at High Clachan have charming rural views. It is also less than a mile's walk from the pretty bay of Port Beg on Loch Ryan - perfect for rock pooling, paddling and picnics.

On entering, the pretty farmhouse has a large breakfasting kitchen, with charming restored church pews forming seats around the dining table. Off the kitchen is a large conservatory, with another dining table and arm chairs, so guests can either choose to eat here, relax, play games or take in the views.

The sitting room is located to the left of the front door and has a log burning stove - which gives off a great heat and wood is provided free of charge. There is a large corner sofa, other various arm chairs and chairs, a television and DVD player.

The master bedroom, with a king size bed, is also located on the ground floor. It has an en suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Next door is a bedroom with a full sized bunkbed, which is ideal if you have children and want them close by at night.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, which have zip and link beds so can either be made up as twin or double (super king) beds. Full of character, these bedrooms each have the original fireplaces. Both bedrooms have huge en suite bathrooms with Victorian style free standing baths for added luxury and separate showers and under floor heating. There is also an additional house bathroom upstairs, with a bath and overhead shower.

Downstairs, the house also has an utility room, with a washing machine, which is a great space for storing and hanging up outside clobber. There is also a separate WC.

All linen, fluffy towels, extra thick feather filled duvets and pillows are provided. Heating, electricity and logs are also included in the price.

High Clachan is equipped with WiFi, a flat screen television, Freeview Box, DVD player; iPod radio/docking station, a selection of board games, books and classic films. It has its own private garden with a croquet lawn including garden furniture and a barbecue.

The Dumfries and Galloway 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.


Dumfries & Galloway is bursting with sights to see and activities to get your teeth into during your stay in Corsewall Estate's self catering accommodation. Here are a few suggestions to whet your appetite:

Activities with the Children

The Cocoa Bean Company Chocolate Factory at Twynholm, which runs excellent hands on workshops and has a huge indoor slide, outdoor adventure playground and cafe.

Cream o' Galloway Visitor Centre (locally made award winning ice cream) – with loads of activities from karts, slides, rides, and a woodland adventure playground to farm tours and ice cream experience events near Gatehouse of Fleet.

The Gem Rock Museum at Creetown is a huge favourite with our children. It houses one of the finest collections of gemstones, crystals, minerals, rocks and fossils in the UK.

Logan Fish Pond, located at Port Logan was once the Victorian larder stocked with fish of the nearby Logan House. 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. In addition, there is an indoor riding arena at Terally, 30 minutes drive to the south.

Mountain Biking

Get to grips with the great outdoors during your stay at one of our self catering cottages. The 7Stanes is a series of seven amazing and varied mountain biking centres located across Wigtownshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Dumfriesshire and the Borders in the east. The nearest two to Corsewall are found at Kirroughtree and Glentrool in the Galloway Forest Park near Newton Stewart, a 45 minute drive away.


Garden Cottage is an ideal base to explore the numerous golf courses in Wigtownshire and Ayrshire including the Portpatrick Dunskey course, the Stranraer Golf Club and the Wigtownshire County Golf Club.

For grown ups, the Championship courses of Turnberry and Royal Troon are also within easy drive up the Ayrshire coast, one hour and one and half hours respectively.


Visitors to Wigtownshire often describe it as 'Cornwall but without all the people'. The Rhins of Galloway are endowed with numerous and spectacular beaches from Killantringan and Larbrax to Lady Bay and Sandeel Bay.


Dumfries and Galloway is blessed with a huge range of walks to enjoy during your stay from the spectacular garden and woodland walks at the gardens of Dunskey and Castle Kennedy to those along the coast and upland ones in the Galloway hills.

The Galloway Forest Park offers three visitor centres close to Newton Stewart from where walkers can explore - Kirroughtree, Clatteringshaws and Glentrool. For the ambitious, head for the hills and tackle the Merrick - the south of Scotland's highest peak. Alternatively, there are any number of clearly marked tracks of varying lengths that take you through spectacular Galloway scenery through woodlands, across moorland and by scenic lochs.


There are many beautiful gardens to explore in the local area. Visit Castle Kennedy, Dunskey, Glenwhan, Ardwell Gardens and Logan House – all with their very varied landscapes and plant species. Bursting with exotic colours, they are full of inspiration for keen gardeners or simply beautiful and peaceful places in which to enjoy a relaxing stroll. Port Logan Botanical Gardens is the Royal Edinburgh Botanics' most southerly outpost - and aptly described as 'a plantman's paradise' - is one of the country's most exotic gardens where many varieties of plants from the southern hemisphere flourish warmed by the Gulf Stream.


There are a number of festivals and events held in Dumfries & Galloway throughout the year including:

Spring Fling in May which is Dumfries and Galloway's annual art and craft open studios festival, with over 76 artists taking part in this year's 10th anniversary festival.

The award winning Wickerman Festival in July. Now in its 11th year, it promises to be a diverse line up of music, arts and entertainment for all ages.

And the Wigtown Book Festival (28 September – 7 October 2012) which has grown over the years to become one of the most charming events in the British literary calendar.

Places of Interest

And finally, there are many pretty towns, villages and places of interest to visit during your stay from Portpatrick and the Mull of Galloway to Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright. You could even consider a day trip to Ireland.

"Excellent accommodation in great surrounds"

Our stay was excellent. We were two young families staying for the week. The house was excellent; plenty of space, clean, warm and everything you'd need for a break (including a choice of bathrooms!). There was plenty of space outside for playing & parking. The surrounding area is great. The accommodation is situated on the Corsewall Estate where we could take a walk to and use the Estates zip slide, swings and tramploine in the magnificent gardens. Also close by are some great secluded beaches (Lady Bay and Port Beg) which were great for exploring with the kids (and for BBQ's). Also a great thank you to Kate & Angus for their warm welcome.

"A beautiful house in an excellent location"

We stayed here as a group of six adults at the beginning of August. The property was extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed walking up the lane to Port Beg most evenings watching the ferry sail through Loch Ryan. The local area was very attractive with sandy beaches nearby and gardens to explore. Kate was very helpful and welcoming. We would all recommend this property.

Thank you so much for choosing High Clachan Farmhouse - we're so pleased you had a lovely holiday at Corsewall. Port Beg is a great family favourite for us too - whether we're making sandcastles, building dams, exploring rock pools or, for the braver members of the family, swimming!

Beautiful house. Perfect location. Wonderful people. Beds were so comfortable, the garden was great; also the village. The travelling fish vendor was brilliant, and wandering around the woods and garden was magical. This time of year, do take some mozzie spray, always have waterproofs to hand, and if you have children, pack a towel in your day bag, as they won't resist the pull of the rock pools, clothed or not!

"A great weekend at a beautiful house in a wonderful location"

We (4adults and 4 kids) stayed here for the September weekend. The house is absolutely beautiful, well finished to the highest standard and equipped with absolutely everything we needed. It's in a really peaceful location and we had a couple of lovely walks through the estate-even picked some brambles! The kids and dogs had plenty space to roam and all are asking to come back as soon as possible. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and the welcome pack was much appreciated. All in all a great break and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend High Clachan.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I do hope we can welcome you back to High Clachan soon!
