Situated on the 6000-acre Lincluden Estate, on the edge of moors and woodland, with sandy beaches and lovely gardens nearby.

Situated on the 6000-acre Lincluden Estate, these three detached properties are presented to the highest standards. They are located in remote settings on the edge of the moors with delightful woodland walks and hillside trails up into forests. It is an area hugely popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities, and the Dalbeattie 7 Stanes cycling trail is also close by. There are many sandy beaches and forest trails to explore and many lovely gardens nearby as well for those seeking a slower pace of recreation.
The surrounding area offers a tremendous range of activities for the visitor. Golf courses, sailing, horse riding, cycling and walking are all available close by, and there are tennis courts and swimming-pools in nearby Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Dumfries. Fishing is available by arrangement at Glen Kiln Loch with the first day free of charge (any days after are chargeable at £10 per adult and £5 per child/OAP). Many quaint villages await exploration including the coastal villages of the Isle of Whithorn, Port William (known as the Machars of Galloway and presented with the Pride of Galloway award) and the popular village of Portpatrick with stunning views over the North Channel to the Irish coast. A trip to Ireland from Stranraer also makes for a good day out. Dumfries, with shops, restaurants, museums and theatre, lies 10 miles away, while Castle Douglas, Scotland’s Food Town (8 miles), is a traditional market town with shops specialising in local produce. There are also many beautiful beaches for holidaymakers to enjoy. Shop 5 miles, pub 5½ miles.

Granary Cottage is remote and peaceful. We were attracted to it by the promise of secure bike storage but there was no information about where this was. As the Cottage is in a farmyard and surrounded by open and empty buildings it wasn't difficult to find somewhere for our bikes but it might have been useful to have had some directions to the official store.

Our only problem was the television, but as we had family in the farmhouse it didn’t bother us. I would leave instructions how to work it with the two remotes. The house itself was first class, thankyou

'Tis small but clean and cared for with any problems quickly and cheerfully resolved by the 'concierge'. Warm, sufficient space in both the living room and bedroom and a nice place to be. Storage capacity is limited and, as always with this group of properties, the seating is less than comfortable with very deep cushions from front to back requiring a multitude of additional cushions to become semi-comfortable. Attend to this important issue and we have no reservations about recommending this accommodation.
