Find cottages in Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland’s south west is a hidden gem of tranquil countryside and uncrowded coastlines and has a natural beauty to match anywhere in the UK. It’s perfect for exploring the abundant beauty of one of Scotland’s most stunning locations where you’ll find open landscapes, fantastic heritage, wonderful food and drink and a wealth of activities and attractions.

The 300 square miles that make up the Galloway Forest are a magnet for walkers and mountain bikers and consist of not only miles of forest but also heather clad moors, tranquil valleys and some 250 lochs; the ideal place for outdoor pursuits and great wildlife. In fact Dumfries and Galloway has four National Nature Reserves where you can see a wide variety of bird life, wildflowers and nature in its natural environments. These are stunningly beautiful open landscapes that help preserve our precious and threatened wild places.

Head for the coast if you’re looking for quiet sandy beaches, here there are three National Scenic Locations extending from the Mull of Galloway towards Cumbria.

The region is steeped in history, for example Caerlaverock Castle’s often turbulent history is reflected in its architecture, with a twin towered gatehouse, moat and battlements, which once made it an imposing sight for invaders but now serves to make it a fantastic family-friendly visitor attraction, with nature trail, children’s adventure park and more.

Drumlanrig Castle is similarly impressive, offering late 17th century Renaissance architecture with the addition of 90,000 beautiful acres to explore in the surrounding area. If you fancy something a little more exotic then the Logan Botanic Garden is something of a warm weather oasis. Located on the south-western tip of Scotland, the region receives a Gulf Stream climate which allows the cultivation of many tropical and semi-tropical plants providing a fantastic day out for visitors.

If all that warm weather leaves you seeking refreshment get along to the intriguingly named Cream o'' Galloway, a fantastic ice cream visitor centre, which is sure to delight the kids. If you have a sweet tooth then you could also include a visit to The CocoaBean Company chocolate factory and visitor centre!

Strong cultural heritage includes its connections with Robert Burns and the Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries. This award-winning attraction chronicles the poet’s life and is perfectly suited for an exploration of other attractions linked to one of Scotland’s favourite sons.

    Ref: 30812


    Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, adjacent to Corsewall House, there are lots of walks around the estate and down to the sea you can enjoy. Garden Cottage (ref 30810) forms the west wing of the 18th-century Corsewall House and has wonderful sea views across Loch Ryan. High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) is a traditional, detached, Galloway farmhouse, built in the local vernacular style of south west Scotland and entirely surrounded by open farmland. Stables Cottage (ref 30812) is in the heart of Corsewall Estate, surrounded by historic woodland and overlooking an extensive walled kitchen garden. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas – pinks, reds, creams, yellows, purples and white – come into flower. Indeed, one of our rhododendron, known as Christmas cheer, comes out in mid December. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November. There is oodles of wildlife to spot from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. The cottage comes complete with its own red squirrel feeder, where guests can watch any number of cheeky red squirrels feeding ferociously all day. The owners record spotted at one of the feeders is currently six. Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and The Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From a historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – evidence can be seen of this on a walk along the bay and also throughout the woods at Corsewall Estate, which was requisitioned by the Royal Canadian Air Force during the War. The Galloway coastline offers an abundance of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore. Boat Bank is within a 1 mile walk of Stables Cottage (ref 30812) and Garden Cottage (ref 30810), while Port Beg is within 1 mile of High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) accessed via road. Both beaches are perfect for picnics. Walking, golf, sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking water sports and cycling are all available nearby. There are several beautiful gardens including Logan Botanical which benefits from the mild climate of the Gulf Stream. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 4 miles.

    Stairs to entrance. All on first floor: Living room with wooden floor/kitchen with Velux. 2 bedrooms: 1 double (5ft), 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.
