What we love


This property with large garden, summerhouse and cosy woodburner is surrounded by the Galloway Hills, with dramatic views towards the Solway Firth.

"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.

    We spent a lovely week here. It’s a great base to explore from with many places to visit near by. This was our second visit to this property and we would visit again. One of our family members has mobility issues and the ground floor bedroom with en-suit shower room made the stay easy for her. We had two dogs with us who enjoyed playing in the garden. The property was well equipped and very comfortable. The only down side was that we had a one year old with us and there is no cot or high chair so you must bring your own if needed.

    We had a lovely holiday in a beautiful location. The garden and landscape were truly stunning! The cottage was cosy, but spacious enough for all of us. Suitable for all of the family including our dog!

    This was our second visit to this lovely cottage and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a 'getaway from it all' holiday. The house is comfortable, warm and cosy. No wi-fi was a small issue but cant really be helped due to the location. Basic facilities could definitely be improved for a very small cost.

    Fab holiday home, 4 adults and 2 children on this visit, all couldn't believe how spacious and comfortable it was. Lovely location secluded and relaxing with much wildlife about and so many places to visit as a family within an hours drive. Lots of nooks and crannies for the kids to hide in, even carried on building a den in the garden someone had started. lovely being able to walk about in the grounds. Although we had to be aware of dog poo that previous occupants did not dispose of in certain areas the garden! Other than that it was fabulous!
