A perfect base from which to explore, with beaches, the Galloway Hills and Newton Stewart all within easy reach.

This pretty, detached holiday cottage is set amidst rolling farmland in this very scenic area, with lovely beaches, challenging hills and some of the best cycling around. West Mains Cottage is by the Royal Burgh of Wigtown, home to Scotland’s very own national book town, which has become a much-loved institution. It is a must for lover of literacy and is graced by many a famous author, offering lectures and book signings. Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest local nature reserve in Britain. Migrating Solway Geese and the wetland native birds make this an ornithologist’s dream. Newton Stewart is known as the ’Gateway to the Galloway Hills’. These hills are not as lofty as their northern neighbours but are equally challenging. With names like Rig of the Jarkness, the ranges of the Awful Hand and Dungeon, these could be straight out of a Harry Potter tale! The Rhins of Galloway is the most westerly peninsula in Galloway, and at its tip is the Mull of Galloway, with its stunning views and lighthouse. Throughout this peninsula, there are secluded bays, beautiful sandy beaches and superb fishing opportunities. The jewel in the crown of this area is Portpatrick, whose name refers to the legend that St Patrick crossed the North Channel in a single leap. On a clear day you can almost reach out and touch Ireland. There is also fishing and golf nearby. Beach 6 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Great for taking dogs - really secure garden. Plenty of places to explore in all directions. Comfortable and private. A bit run down, but excellent value for money.

    It's a great place to stop, homely is probably the best description, we go to this area because two of the group play golf at Wigtown, whilst I, unable to walk too far, remain at the cottage with my dog, who, too old to walk far, so the pair of us, spent lots of time in the cottage, which, because the weather was so good this year, had a great time, I complained about the Wi Fi last year, it was good to see the owners have improved the service, no complaints the year, everyone enjoyed their stay

    Our stay at West Mains Cottage was enjoyable for my husband, two dogs and I. The cottage is very dog friendly with very dog safe gardens. There are shops a few miles down the road and plenty to see and do in the area to keep you busy for a week. The only issue we had was with the cleanliness of the property, even for a property that allows dogs it fell short of what we would expect from our many previous cottage holidays. We had to clean the kitchen and bathroom and have a vacuum round a couple of rooms when we arrived but we did not let this spoil our holiday.
