Description

A cosy retreat with open fire, in an idyllic situation on the 3000-acre Crofts Estate, surrounded by the Galloway Hills.. “Idyllically set on a 3000-acre estate…”

Enjoying an idyllic situation on the 3000-acre Crofts Estate, surrounded by the Galloway Hills, these holiday cottages have enviable, dramatic views towards the Solway Firth and Cumbrian Hills beyond. Accessed along a private drive, and adjoining a cluster of well-maintained estate buildings, Stable Cottage (ref UUD) makes a romantic hideaway for two, offering stylishly furnished accommodation – its walls adorned with the original work of various Scottish artists. The larger Victorian detached Gardener’s Cottage (ref UXT) has been elegantly furnished, and features an attractive shared garden with a bridge over a burn and a small waterfall. Arkland Mill (ref STTZ) stands detached with a lovely large garden, a summerhouse and its own bridge over the stream. Marwhin House (SWWR) and Marwhin Cottage (ref SWWS) also stand detached, situated within 25 yards of each other, still with there own privacy, the latter two properties being set in gardens with a delightful stream and pond. Woodland walks and hillside trails radiate from the doorstep. Dumfries lies just 12 miles away, where there are plenty of shops, restaurants and museums, as well as a good theatre. Castle Douglas (8 miles) is a traditional market town with individual shops specialising in food and local produce. There are many beautiful beaches within easy reach along the Solway, and the National Trust Threave Gardens, 8 miles, makes for an interesting day out. Other tourist attractions in the area include the Galloway Kite Trail, the Galloway Forest Park and golf courses and museums in Dumfries. Village shop and pub within 4 miles.. Step to entrance. Living/dining room with open fire, rugs on wooden floor and modern fitted kitchen area with door to garden. Double bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet..

Guest Comments

“Lovely cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings. Very friendly couple who look after it. Access to farm and many local excellent walks both countryside and coastal. Only thing we missed was hanging space for clothes, otherwise well equipped.”

Carolina, September 2019

“An excellent cottage, comfortable and cosy with tremendous walks on the doorstep. A great log fire for cooler nights, overall a cosy retreat. Nice touches of fresh flowers and a very well equipped kitchen. We would definitely recommend and hope to return next year ourselves.”

Mark, September 2019

“Undersold in the original description, definitely a great find, more than likely to return. Very comfortable and one of the best we have used in Scotland”

David, July 2019
