Description

Traditional old house with a lovely garden on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park. Sleeps 6 in comfort, with one double bedroom and two twin rooms. Plus, the master bedroom has 2 children's bunks to make it a family room if needed. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, toilet and handbasin, and downstairs is a cloakroom with toilet and handbasin.

The light and airy ground floor has views on to the garden from the hallway and the kitchen, and the open plan kitchen/dining room is great for getting together while the chef of the family cooks up favourite meals. There are lots of kitchen utensils and cookware, and plenty of crockery and glassware for up to 8 people. In the evening, cosy up by the open fire in the sitting room and have fun with board games for all ages, or raid the shelves of books and paperbacks for some relaxed holiday reading. Browse through our huge collection of guides to local attractions and activities. In fine weather (it does happen!) live

This is a wonderful place for a holiday in the great outdoors. Enjoy watersports on Loch Ken, cycling, riding, hill walking, fishing, or golfing. For the kids, there are lots of exciting activites. Discover our wonderful wildlife along the Raiders' Road forest drive, at Threave Gardens and Estate, or the wildlife reserves at Mersehead, Caerlaverock and the Ken-Dee marshes. Or visit artists' and craft-workers' studios, great gardens, or historic castles. Something new to do every day.

The Scotland region

Galloway, in the southwest corner of Scotland, is a most beautiful tract of unspoilt country, untouched by urban development, one of the most attractive and peaceful holiday destinations in Britain. It is a land of green hills, stately forests and shining lochs, At its centre, the Galloway Forest Park is a huge area of forested hill country ideal for walking and cycling. Along the Solway coast are beaches, cliffs and estuaries, with spectacular views at low tide over the Solway sands towards the coast of Cumbria. You can enjoy fine local foods, historical sites, great gardens and lots of wonderful wildlife. The annual "Spring Fling" craft event sees more than 70 craft studios open across the region. Hillwalking among the higher hills and along the Southern Upland Way attracts walkers, and the Forestry Commission's 7-Stanes mountain bike trails are popular with younger cyclists.

Galloway's history stretches back to the earliest times when neolithic man built stone burial chambers and carved cup and ring marks on standing stones. St Ninian founded a Christian centre at Whithorn early in the 5th Century which was for centuries a place of pilgrimage for kings and commoners alike. Robert the Bruce launched his fight for Scottish independence from Galloway. The many fortified castles evidence a turbulent history of strife among Scotland's noble families. Covenanters died in the hills for the right to worship in their own Presbyterian Church. And Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns, lived the latter part of his life in and around Dumfries.

Galloway has literary connections. You can identify events in John Buchan's "The Thirty Nine Steps" and Dorothy L Sayers' "Five Red Herrings" along routes in the Galloway countryside. The Victorian novelist Samuel Rutherford Crockett lived his boyhood close to Laurieston village and set many of his novels around local places which he knew. "The Raiders" is his best known work, but many others tell stories of Galloway's history right back to the 15th Century. For book addicts, the Wigtown Book Festival is held every autumn in "Scotland's Book Town".

Laurieston

Rose Haugh is in Laurieston village, in rolling countryside 6 miles from Castle Douglas. The boundary of the Galloway Forest Park is at the edge of the village, giving it a backdrop of forest green.

We are on the Galloway Kite Trail, with a Red Kite Feeding Station close by at Bellymack Farm. Dozens of red kites wheel and call above the garden of Rose Haugh. Right in the village are the Earth's Crust artisan bakery, the Gallery at Laurieston selling beautiful local images, and the Mountain Weather Information Service which forecasts both local and national weather details.

Within a few miles are the Raiders' Road Forest Drive, Threave Castle, Threave Gardens, the Galloway Activity Centre on Loch Ken, and, popular with the children, Cream o' Galloway ice cream and adventure centre, the CocoaBean Company, and the Otter Pool on the Raiders' Road. Nearby wildlife reserves are Mersehead, the Ken-Dee Marshes, Castramon Wood and Retreat Wood.

Castle Douglas "The Food Town" offers a complete shopping experience, from local butchers, bakers and delicatessens to shoes, clothing and outdoor wear, and national supermarkets. The Sulwath artisan brewery welcomes visitors. Kirkcudbright, Gatehouse of Fleet, New Galloway and Newton Stewart are all within easy reach.
