Description

Located in the heart of Corsewall Estate, seven miles from Stranraer, surrounded by historic woodland and overlooking a traditional 19th century walled kitchen garden, the recently restored 4*Stables cottage is an ideal base for exploring Wigtownshire and rest of Dumfries & Galloway.

Stables Cottage, located on the first floor, has a spacious, modern open plan sitting room with kitchen and dining area with a traditional log burning stove as a focus for relaxing and comfy sofas and arm chairs.

The cottage has a double bedroom with a traditional style cast iron king size bed over looking the old walled garden. There is a twin bedroom with ivory traditional style cast iron beds. The bathroom has a bath with an overhead chrome shower.

Stables Cottage is equipped with a flat screen television, Freeview Box, DVD player; iPod radio/docking station and WiFi, a selection of board games, books and classic films. The cottage has its own private garden, with garden furniture a swing ball set and a barbecue. There is also a large trampoline with a safety enclosure in the Estate gardens for children to use.

Corsewall Estate has three pretty beaches on Loch Ryan - Boat Bank, Lady Bay and Port Beg - that Stables Cottage guests can explore. A pretty walk down one of the drives will take you to Boat Bank, which is the nearest one to the cottage. Both Boat Bank and Lady Bay are wonderful spots if you like collecting shells or pebbles - oyster shells and mussels to cowries and scallop shells never fail to disappoint. Bird watching down on the shores of Loch Ryan or in the woods is second to none.

Port Beg is a pretty bay, pebbly down to the waterline and then sandy in the sea - ideal for paddling and swimming. There are lots of rock pools - so a bucket and a net is a must for the kids! There's a grassy area for picnics and barbies and the views out to sea, with Ailsa Craig in the foreground and the Isle of Arran in the distance, are simply magical.

The gardens and lawns provide a secure environment for children and it is a wonderful location for them to enjoy the great outdoors and play good old fashioned games from hide and seek and football to kick the can. The lawns are great for running about, and there are lots of little banks, which are ideal for rolling down. A stream runs through the estate, so with two stone bridges and an endless supply of sticks, Pooh sticks is always a fun game for children to enjoy.

And families are welcome to set up camp in the woods beside the lawns - we provide the tent, roll mats, wood and campfire location - guests just need to bring their sleeping bags! And if it all gets too much for some younger members of the camping party, they can always retreat back to home comforts indoors.

Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland adjacent to Stables Cottage, there are lots of tracks around the estate you can enjoy - on foot or by bike. This also makes it a great holiday for dogs too! In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas come into flower. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November.

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 the feeders is currently six.

The Blue Peter pub in the village of Kirkcolm is 3/4s of a mile away. Under new ownership, the pub has good pub grub and also does great take away fish and chips - a 'must eat' while on holiday by the coast!

We have a second cottage, Garden Cottage, about 50 metres from Stables Cottage, which sleeps 6 - so groups of up to 10 can easily be accommodated in both locations.

“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.

Response from the manager 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.

Response from the manager 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!

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