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.

    This is the second time we have been to Stable Cottage in a year and we will be back again soon. Thanks to Margaret and Brian for the warm welcome, top notch facilities and generous wood supplies!

    We loved this cottage and it's very quiet rural location. The cottage has all the home comforts that you need for a relaxing stay. The nearest village pub (excellent food) and shop is about 4 miles away hence the score of 8 for "local" amenities. Roughly midway between Dumfries and Castle Douglas (4 miles north of the A75) it provided us with the ideal base for touring the area. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful location, saw a couple of red squirrels which was a real treat. Lovely woods to walk in and the gardens were so pretty. Margaret the housekeeper was very friendly and helpful. Made sure we weren't rushed on our last day. The cottage was well equipped with everything you need, it was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable too. The only negatives were the shower wasn't very powerful and there was no light in the cooker which made it difficult to know if it was working. My partner was a bit lost without WiFi but I didn't have a problem with that. Overall a lovely place and I would have been happy to stay longer.
