Peacefully situated in extensive, beautifully landscaped and maintained gardens, Low Cordorcan and Wee Cordorcan enjoy an enviable position at the start of the RSPB nature reserve at Wood of Cree. Converted from former barns, Wee Cordorcan stands detached, whilst Low Cordorcan is semi-detached, adjoining the owner’s home. The Wood of Cree is the largest area of ancient woodland in southern Scotland and is abundant with bird and wildlife. In spring the wood is carpeted with bluebells and alive with the sound of birdsong, as residents are joined by redstarts, pied flycatchers and garden warblers. By the river you may see goosander and common sandpiper, with teals, snipe and water rails in the riverside meadows. In the autumn, whooper swans and goldeneye arrive from the Arctic. A raised platform gives good views out over the river where otter are often seen.

Cordorcan Cottages are located only 5 miles from the centre of Newton Stewart with many excellent shops and places to eat. With the Galloway Forest and Dark Skies Park close by, the cottage is ideally placed to explore the beauty of south west Scotland. The location is perfect for walkers, golfers and cyclists, with Glentrool, Kirroughtree and the 7Stanes mountain bike trails nearby, as well as a great choice of golf courses. There is an abundance of fishing, bird watching, beautiful and exotic gardens, many rocky coves, sandy beaches and quaint villages to explore along the Machars Peninsula. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.

Guest Comments

“A very nice and well equipped cottage, though TV reception varied and there is no wi fi at present. The approach road is very narrow, with a poor surface at times. At night it is VERY dark … great for star gazing, if the clouds allow. The garden is beautiful and would be ideal for relaxing in if the weather allows (it rained every day we were there – but with some clear spells. There are bird feeders in the garden, which attracts many garden birds. Lots of places to visit within a 30 mile radius, and we were lucky enough to see Red Kites. There are a couple of nice woodland walks nearby, that our dog Hugo enjoyed. A comfortable bed, larger than we have at home, and my wife Linda tells me that the cooker works better than ours.”

“lovely cottage with fantastic garden and many beautiful walks just down the road. Good location for visiting local small towns. Very quiet at night and lots of garden birds just outside the window. Owners live next door and are very hospitable. Would thoroughly recommend.”

“Wee Cordorcan is a well equipped comfortable cottage…but you need to like to be away from it all. There is no phone or internet at the cottage although a couple of miles up the road you can get mobile signal…that didn’t matter to us but it might to some. The owners are very friendly and welcoming….and their garden is beautiful. My only (small) disappointment was the lack of private garden with the property….nowhere to sit out with privacy. We found this place to be good value for money and were very pleased with it.”

“Lovely Cottage, just right for 2 people. Great location and base to explore Galloway.”

Stephen , April 2019

“Brilliant place, especially if you like wildlife.”

Geaham, April 2019

“The best we have ever stayed in, we have used cottages in this country and in France. This is simply the best. It was so comfortable, and clean. The wild life was abundant and we enjoyed every aspect of the holiday. Don’t mess about just simply book this one.”

Bill, February 2019
