Description

"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.

    Very quiet and beautiful place to stay. So much to do in the area, this was the perfect base for us to explore by car.

    Simply stunning. Upon arrival, we were in awe of the cottage and its location. Nestled amongst the trees, the cottage is picture-postcard perfect. The location is ideal for a relaxing break, not far from either Dumfries or Castle Douglas for amenities but peaceful and idyllic. Waking up with the sound of the waterfall/stream in the garden and the pheasants and partridges was a delight. The cottage itself is cosy and homely, with an excellent log burner in the living room. I loved the variety of artwork on the walls, added a certain grandeur! With zero light pollution, the stars are amazing at night! So many perfect places to visit and walk in the area also. Could not have had a better break.

    We had a wonderful stay. Really comfortable beds and luxury bedding and towels. The fire was left already laid for us to light. Such nice attention to detail, and wonderfully decorated. Gorgeous grounds and saw a red squirrel. Would love to go back.
