Wonderful rustic country cottage with fully enclosed gardens and a wood burner, perfect for a digital detox. Located in a beautiful area with splendid sea and countryside views.
Set tails wagging with a holiday based in rural splendour, soaking up the coastal views and staggering array of coastal walks that stretch in all directions. Cosy and rustic with a focal stone fireplace, you’ll feel as though you and your party of five have stepped back in time, and your two accompanying hounds will soon bag the best spot by the wood burner. Positioned 4 miles from the coast and 3 miles from the Isle of Whithorn, this is an excellent setting for your Scottish adventure.
This traditional property is a treat from the moment you step inside and let sleeping dogs lie by the wood burner. Listen to music, watch TV or grab a book and delve into the pages, only coming back when it is time to eat. Mealtimes are a breeze thanks to the charming galley-style kitchen and separate dining room, or head outside to enjoy balmy afternoons. At bedtime, you’ll have a choice of two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom complete with a roll-top bath for pamper sessions. There is also a handy shower room.
Eagle-eyed film buffs will recognise St Ninian’s Cave (4 miles) from the cult classic The Wicker Man, but the coast is far from frightening with its marvellous seascapes and cliff-top trails. Spot wildlife as you scamper across the Machars Peninsula’s inspiring landscape, perhaps discovering ancient Bronze and Iron Age sites as you go. For foodies and those partial to a wee dram, why not use your taste buds as your guide and visit one of the many distilleries and popular eateries as you tour the area? The Isle of Whithorn boasts a tearoom and a popular inn for refuelling too.
