"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.

Large, beamed living room with open fire, patio doors and wooden floor. Well-equipped kitchen with wooden floor. Utility. Double bedroom with 6ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Such a lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings and extremely comfortable. The cottage exceeded our expectations after some of the online reviews we had read. There is only one other property near by but this does not impinge on the peace and quiet of the cottage. Overall, it’s a marvellous place to spend a holiday.

Beautiful cottage in a great setting. The property is well equipped with everything required to enjoy a few days relaxation. Lots of wildlife in the area which was great to see. On the whole we had a great long weekend away. The only thing to note is that the cottage is located right next to another holiday let so it wasn't as private as expected with all of the large glass windows and people walking past looking in whilst I was eating or trying to relax. This didn't take away from the fact we had a great weekend, just something to consider.
