A home-from-home whilst exploring local Galloway, this cosy cottage is the ideal spot for a romantic getaway or trip with friends.
Hike-loving hounds will beg to stay at this converted single-storey farm cottage in the heart of Scotland’s Glenkens and Galloway Hills. Three pups are welcome at this cosy cottage, and a second property is also available to book on-site. With a rural setting, long driveway, country lanes and an enclosed garden, it’s the ideal place for children and pup pals; the region is packed with dog-friendly trails, hilltop ambles, and abundant wildlife to see and detect, from barn owls and buzzards to handsome red squirrels.
Follow the ramp to the property entrance, where you’ll find a contemporary open-plan kitchen, dining, and utility area with enviable countryside views. Traditional country style blends seamlessly with contemporary creature comforts for a relaxing holiday. The spacious living room has a double sofabed, plus a TV with Freeview, and French doors lead out to the enclosed garden - perfect for pup pals who want the best of both worlds. Sleep comes easy with the bright double bedroom, family bathroom, and quiet surroundings. There’s a village shop nearby (4 miles), plus delicious pub food a short drive away (7.5 miles).
At the gateway to Galloway Forest Park, this area is made for waggy-tailed adventures and stargazing dreams. Enjoy Europe’s longest zip wire ride at Laggan Outdoor Adventures (15 miles); stay aboard at Loch Ken Waterski School (5 miles) which also offers canoeing and fishing activities; or try the 7Stanes mountain bike trails challenge (19 miles). Boxer and Lola might prefer to explore the secluded glades and woodland trails in this peaceful area. Foodies will enjoy Castle Douglas (15 miles), Scotland’s Food Town; or visit New Galloway (5.5 miles) for its vibrant arts centre and cultural events.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
