Holiday Rental House
Truly luxurious holiday accommodation in a tastefully converted byre, set in a tranquil, rural location, but ideally located for all that the south- west has to offer. The cottage is beautifully presented with hard wood floors and finishes throughout, including a wood-burning stove in the spacious living room, sumptuous beds chosen for their quality and comfort, and fully equipped to make a superb holiday cottage. Enclosed courtyard garden with an outlook over the owners' adjoining garden. Approximately two miles away from the village of Crossmichael with a well-stocked shop and pub. Alternatively, five minutes drive to the market town of Castle Douglas, with its reputation as a food town, with many fine independent retailers, as well as excellent coffee shops, restaurants and galleries.

Alternatively, five minutes drive to the market town of Castle Douglas, with its reputation as a food town, with many fine independent retailers, as well as excellent coffee shops, restaurants and galleries. On the outskirts of Castle Douglas, you will find The National Trust for Scotland's Threave Garden and estate and Threave Castle. Or find time to visit the beautiful artists' town of Kirkcudbright, with its busy harbour and MacLellan's Castle, as well as the National Trust's Broughton House, home of artist E.A. Hornel. The wonderful scenery and quiet lanes make it ideal for cycling (secure bike storage available) or take time to enjoy our unspoiled and quiet beaches. Younger visitors are well-catered for with Cream o'Galloway, The Cocoa Bean Factory or if you are feeling brave try one of Europe's longest zip wires at Laggan Outdoor. Private use of the full house and garden. The two bedrooms can either be arranged with one king size bed or two single beds in each. Please advise on preference when booking.More
