Garlieston, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
A cosy seaside cottage in a pretty walled garden with outdoor pool in summer. An enclosed private lawn with plenty of space to play badminton or just sit and enjoy the birdsong makes Pavilion Cottage ideal space for a family gathering. Suitable for all ages - two ground floor bedrooms, and ground floor shower room make this suitable for less agile visitors. Two cosy loft bedrooms accessible via a galleried landing overlooking the dining area are a hit with children but also suitable for adults. A secluded sandy beach is about 3 minutes walk and the village pub and store only a mile and accessible via a shady coastal path. Well behaved dogs are welcome and the walks are fantastic. An open plan dining/living area opens out onto a terrace with table and chairs for al-fresco dining for 8. In cooler months or after sun down light the wood burn... Read more

Interaction with guests
Pavilion Cottage is within the policies of Garlieston House where we live and work. We are usually available if you need us but we respect the privacy of our guests and try to be us unobtrusive as possible. We try to greet most of our guests so that we can make sure you know where to find things and you can ask us any questions. We can recommend places to eat and things to do in the area. We love children, and we love dogs. If you need a vet we can recommend one. If you want to do something unusual for a special celebration like drive a tank, we can point you in the right direction. We enjoy large family gatherings so can offer extra serving dishes or larger pans if you book additional Rigg Bay cottages for up to 16 guests.
