A lovely cottage, modernised whilst retaining its authentic charm. Well equipped for a home from home stay. The location is stunning, beautiful views and well situated for walking. A great stay for a ‘get away from it all’ break that will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated. Shops and towns are about 30 mins away so take your provisions with you. Good base for exploring the beautiful Galloway area. Highly recommended.

Convenience of washer and dryer. Wood provided for making own fire. Louise was very friendly and welcoming. Lots of info available about tourist activities.
