The Stables is a converted barn, which is part of a working poultry farm. The Farm Steading courtyard is an on going project on site. Will all be completed before summer 2020. The stables has it's own patio and there is an internal court yard/garden area. As seen on the photos. This house was finished on the 1st June 2016. It is joint unto another house which is a 3 bedroom (called the Dairy,) and was completed on the 1st June 2016 too. We are on the red kite trial and are 1 mile from the feeding station, near Laurieston. Cream of Galloway is about 13miles from us and is great for the kids, but go on a dry sunny day. Also is closed during the winter. The Coco Bean is only 7 miles from us and kids just love there chocolate, and making chocolate things. Great for younger kids, as has ...The Stables is a converted barn, which is part of a working poultry farm. The Farm Steading courtyard is an on going project on site.

We also have a farm park just outside Castle Douglas. Called Ernespie Farm, opened on the year 2019. It is about 5 miles away. Has a brilliant soft play area and an outdoor play area also you can get a farm tour and kids can play in a real combine. Fantastic place for all the family. Threave gardens and a visit to the Castle by boat just ring the bell. We trust you choose us and enjoy your stay.

The stables form part of a renovation project for Marcella, along with a larger holiday cottage called the Dairy. Both holiday cottages are on a working poultry farm, so expect country smells! But Marcella has furnished the stables comfortably and with a modern decor. The...More
