Description

A cosy retreat with open fire, in an idyllic situation on the 3000-acre Crofts Estate, surrounded by the Galloway Hills.

"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.

    Undersold in the original description, definitely a great find, more than likely to return. Very comfortable and one of the best we have used in Scotland

    Totally relaxing break in a lovely idyllic cottage. Peaceful country location with woodland walks for the dog. Close to main towns.

    If you want a quiet get away from the world, but there are a few towns and beaches within 30 minutes holiday then Stables cottage is perfect.

    Our holiday, sadly shortened by Hurricane ALI, bringing down power lines and trees, was extremely enjoyable. The house-keeper, Margaret, helped us enormously when, on the Wednesday morning, with no power in the cottage, and all the access roads partially blocked, we had to made a quick evacuation, and go to stay with a friend 15 miles away. We sincerely hope that Margaret and her neighbour, who was also very helpful to us, will have managed to get through the several days without electricity in the wake of the hurricane, and we are determined to go back again one day soon. It was one of the best cottages we have ever rented.
