Description

In a peaceful and secluded valley with only sheep and cattle, this detached family farmhouse has wonderful views over open countryside.

Situated on the 6000-acre Lincluden Estate, these three detached properties are presented to the highest standards. They are located in remote settings on the edge of the moors with delightful woodland walks and hillside trails up into forests. It is an area hugely popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities, and the Dalbeattie 7 Stanes cycling trail is also close by. There are many sandy beaches and forest trails to explore and many lovely gardens nearby as well for those seeking a slower pace of recreation.
The surrounding area offers a tremendous range of activities for the visitor. Golf courses, sailing, horse riding, cycling and walking are all available close by, and there are tennis courts and swimming-pools in nearby Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Dumfries. Fishing is available by arrangement at Glen Kiln Loch with the first day free of charge (any days after are chargeable at £8 per adult and £4 per child/OAP). Many quaint villages await exploration including the coastal villages of the Isle of Whithorn, Port William (known as the Machars of Galloway and presented with the Pride of Galloway award) and the popular village of Portpatrick with stunning views over the North Channel to the Irish coast. A trip to Ireland from Stranraer also makes for a good day out. Dumfries, with shops, restaurants, museums and theatre, lies 10 miles away, while Castle Douglas, Scotland’s Food Town (8 miles), is a traditional market town with shops specialising in local produce. There are also many beautiful beaches for holidaymakers to enjoy. Shop 5 miles, pub 5½ miles.

    The flan farm is a lovingly restored country house rather than a cottage. Everything is done to the highest standard and we would be happy to have a house like this to live in for good! The location is beautiful and we even had the pleasure of having barn owls as neighbours. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could not have had a better week even the weather was lovely .

    We had a great short holiday, easy to find with the instructions. The house was large, warm and homely.

    This is a peach of a property, wonderfully isolated and decorated with a discerning eye. We'll be back....

    Very nice place to stay. All mod cons, The DVD was found not working and a brand new one (in the box) was delivered by the care taker the next day. It could have been cleaner but nothing which spoilt the week. If you want somewhere nice and isolated but within 20 mins of a town (Dumfries) this is the place.
