We visited as a family over the New Year period. We phoned Mark a couple of times en route to help with directions which he was more than happy to help with.
Upon arrival we were met by Mark who gave us the tour and some fantastic home made Plum jam. The cottage is really well laid out, so peaceful and a perfect retreat if you want to head out on foot or on your bike.
The sky at night is amazing, very little light pollution and the stars were stunning.
The photos on the website of the accomadation really don’t do the cottage justice. Its a fantastic place and we will definitely be back. Thanks

“perfect location”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed in penkiln cottage for a long weekend to visit the dark sky park in the galloway national park. The cottage is in the perfect location to access all the areas of the park and 2 minutes drive away from the town itself. The farm itself is surrounded with lovely views and walks and the cottage is very warm and welcoming to come back to after a day of being out exploring.

“Lovely cottage in beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were looking for a cottage for a weekend stay and were delighted to find Penkiln Cottage. It is beautifully presented with lovely furniture and rugs and other small touches like the welcome basket (wonderful home made jam!). Plenty of room for a family of four and a small dog - we really loved the big kitchen and living room. It is near to Newton Stewart and very close to Wigtown, Scotland's book town. There are great walks close by. The owners are welcoming and we will definitely be back.
