  • For mountain bike enthusasts why not try one of the many trails at the 7stanes in the Galloway Forest
  • For Bird lovers the RSPB at Wood of Cree is just 4 miles away
  • The area is one of the 'Dark Skies' which is perfect for star gazing
Property code: D197B

Lovely single story cottage with outstanding views, ideal location for wildlife lovers and lots of local opportunities for walking, climbing, biking, guided ranger walks and fishing.  On the outskirts of Newton Stewart with its pubs, small shops and supermarkets.

Sitting in a designated ‘dark skies’ area, this fabulous property is perfect for those who love being out and about; sit beneath the stars with a tipple and a treat after days spent adventuring. Bring your four-legged friend along to discover the best spot for stick-chasing and tail-wagging, too. Return home to this bolthole and unwind in style, ready to refresh and recharge for tomorrow’s excursions.

Sink into comfortable sofas in the charming lounge where patio doors can be thrown open to let the fresh air and sunshine flood inside. Switch on the TV for a cosy evening before heading through to the kitchen in time for dinner. Hungry tummies can be filled in the open-plan kitchen/diner, a smart space which welcomes you to experiment with flavour before savouring each mouthful at the table. Enjoy an al fresco tipple on the patio and gaze across the hills of Galloway whilst your furry guest stretches their legs and sniffs out new scents. Retire to bed in one of two pleasantly styled bedrooms where heads are invited to doze off as they hit the pillows in these peaceful rooms. The master room has an en-suite and a further family bathroom is a great post-walk pit-stop for towelling down soggy fur.

Visit the Kirroughtree visitor centre which is 3.5 miles from home and sits in the Galloway Hills: here you can explore trails, go in search of wildlife and enjoy a spot of mountain biking if you are a two-legged guest. For those of you with four legs who might enjoy a stick chase, paddle or frolic in the sand, travel 14 miles to Garlieston Beach and Wigtown Bay, where dogs are welcomed all year round.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely, cosy property with spectacular views across Newton Stewart to the beautiful Galloway Forest. Well situated with local amenities close by but also central for exploring the area. We were given a very friendly welcome and appreciated a bottle of wine and flowers to greet our arrival.

The location of this property was ideal and the views from the living room window lovely. A bottle of wine, carton of milk and flowers on arrival were a nice touch. We probably won't return there because the king-size bed was too hard for our liking and the shower not easy to use with fluctuating temperature all the time as run off the bath's mixerRead more tap. Apart from that we had a good holiday in a beautiful part of Scotland! Hide

A spacious, cosy, and extremely well equipped cottage. A lovely touch of flowers and a bottle of wine added to our instant feeling that our cottage was an excellent one. With views over the beautiful Galloway countryside and the peace, it was ideal.

Warm & comfortable accommodation with spacious rooms and generally well-appointed kitchen. Plenty of easy parking space although the remotely controlled security gate is a minor inconvenience if your party don't all go out together.

A very central location and well appointed cottage within easy driving distances of Logan Botanical Garden, Glen Whan Garden, Loch Trool, Wood of Cree,Wigtown and Isle of Whithorn. The kitchen facilities were very good indeed and the spacious lounge with views to the hills, enchanting.
