Holiday Rental House
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.

A lovely place to stay with an excellent fire that got going in seconds and warmed the house quickly. Well equipped throughout and if you can't find anything, a hair dryer for instance, Stewart is on call to help locate stuff. All clean and welcoming...More

Additional amenities & feature info
Larch house has been built to an exacting standard in a contemporary style but keeping the essence of rural living, off the beaten track but within 2 miles of the euro route. It benefits from a south facing aspect and has a light open plan feel to the main living area. It has a great deal of ecological aspects including solar panels to heat the water, under floor heating from the log burner and the whole house is super insulated. All these eco measures have been used without compromising luxury living. Egyptian cotton has been used throughout for the bedding and towels and goose down duvets . All appliances are brand new. We think Larch House offers stylish, luxurious and cosy accommodation for families or groups of friends keen to explore this unique landscape.

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.
