A perfect retreat to unwind and relax in, Carse Cottage is a semi-detached property with enclosed shared grounds where you can sit and watch the chickens and ducks roaming freely. Dating back to around 1870, the property represents superb and stylish accommodation finished to a high standard. Beautifully nestled on a former drover’s road, this delightful cottage has glorious views of the surrounding countryside.
This cottage is ideally located with beaches and a National Scenic Area close by. There are opportunities for hill walking, mountain biking and water-sports, or perhaps visiting renowned gardens and ancient woodland with a chance to glimpse the abundant wildlife.
The area is well recognised for its clear skies, as one of the 12 best stargazing sites in the world and the first Dark Sky Park in the UK. Whilst in a delightful, rural location the property is only a few minutes’ drive from Twynholm, a small village with a well stocked shop and two pubs serving food. The larger towns of Gatehouse of Fleet and Kirkcudbright are also within a short drive. Gatehouse of Fleet offers a wider range of places to eat and drink, and there are many attractions in and around the town including the ‘Mill on the Fleet’ Visitor Centre, Cardoness Castle and the popular Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre which is host to one of Europe’s longest zip wires. Kirkcudbright, known as “the artists’ town”, attracts visitors throughout the year drawn by the harbour, the historic high street and the diverse range of annual events and visitor attractions. The popular programme of summer festivities culminates with the spectacular Tattoo, an event not to be missed.
This cottage offers all year round comfortable accommodation for couples and families. It welcomes children of all ages with a wide range of toys and books, and other equipment available. The owners encourage the use of the garden with its separate spaces and wildlife areas, and you can even feed the goats, although these are not free ranging!
