Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, there are lots of walks around the estate you can enjoy. In late January and February, the woods feature pretty drifts of snowdrops and in April the hue turns to purple with the bluebells. There is some colour in the gardens almost right the way through the year – which forms a rich riot of colour in April and May. From the rhododendrons and azaleas – pinks, reds, creams, yellows, purples and white which can appear as early as December through to the late autumn with hydrangeas. There is oodles of wildlife to spot – from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. The cottage comes complete with its own red squirrel feeder – where you can watch any number of cheeky red squirrels feeding ferociously all day. Our record spotted at Corsewall is currently six.

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.

Kirkcolm

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 ChildrenThe 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 BikingGet 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.GolfGarden 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.BeachesVisitors 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.WalkingDumfries 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.GardensThere 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.Festivals/EventsThere 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 InterestAnd 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.

“Little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

A beautiful area, quiet and peaceful retreat. Fantastic accommodation well presented and spotlessly clean, with everything you need for a hassle free stay. Would defiantly return. A place to recharge your batteries and chill. The owners are very friendly, yet not intrusive.

“Lovely Cottage, Lovely Owners”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

I Looked long and hard for cottage that was - 2 Bedrooms, not too remote and finished to a high standard. Stables cottage fitted the bill nicely and I thought it was priced reasonably in comparison to others I looked at, especially for a stay over Christmas. On arrival we were greeted warmly by the Estate's owners and were left alone to settle in. The cottage was even nicer than in the pictures (and bigger too) and the care that had went into the every little detail was evident. It was well equipped with quality items, especially in the Kitchen, which was really important for preparing Christmas Dinner. The location is beautiful and not too remote. We kept forgetting shopping items so it was nice to not have to travel to far to get to the shops. All in all this was easily the cosiest, most well presented cottage I have ever stayed in and friends and family who came to visit said the same.

Thank you so much for your glowing review. Having travelled up from the south of England I'm so pleased it was well worth the trip and I do hope we can welcome you to Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages again.

“A great short break & great start to the New Year!”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

We can easily say we had a very relaxed and pleasant stay in the Stables Cottage at Corsewall Estate, even with the inclement weather we had during our stay the comfortable and luxurious cottage made up for this. The cottage is done to a very high standard and has a very luxurious Five Star feel to it; with all the mod cons to satisfy all, we were all more than happy with our home form home for our short break. The wood burner and the smell of logs burning did it for me & the WIFI for our teenage girls! Our hosts Kate and Angus made us feel very welcome and even provided us with an exciting outdoor landscape with blown down tall trees for our teenage girls to climb; more logs to burn! We would highly recommend the cottage to our friends & family and we would defiantly make a return trip.

Thank you so much for your kind words - I'm so pleased you had a great New Year break - weather certainly was windy - as you say there's lots more logs for the wood burner! I do hope we can welcome you back to Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages soon.

“The best coattage stay we've ever had!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2012

We could recommend Stables Cottage at Corsewall enough. The cottages themselves were absolutely lovely, very homely and we were made to feel very welcome by our lovely hosts, Angus and Kate who were on hand to give us information about where to go and what to see. The location is beautiful and we had many a nice walk with fantastic views and breathtaking landscapes. Couldn't have come away feeling more relaxed!

Thanks so much for choosing Stables Cottage at Corsewall - it was a pleasure having you both and Bailey the dog too! Kate and Angus
