At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that Larch House looks like a standard barn conversion; A stone building, sitting in the grounds of a Galloway farm, but this is truly out of the ordinary. I think 'Wow', every time I walk through the door. The sense of space and light is instantly calming. Larch House is set in the heart of Galloway's great outdoors just 3 miles from Castle Douglas with it's fine shops, galleries, cafes and eateries. It is a perfect base for the many mountain bike trails in the area and for road cycling. There is secure storage for your sports equipment and mountain bike guiding is available with a qualified local guide. The area is littered with fine golf courses, beaches, lochs and rivers to fish and there are excellent outdoor centres nearby.

About the neighbourhood
Nestling between the Galloway hills and forests to the north and the sweeping beaches of the Solway Firth to the south, the historic market town of Castle Douglas has always been at the heart of local agricultural and commercial life. Today the town continues to flourish and is always busy with people visiting the many independent and speciality shops.
