Within the village, there is a pub - the Laurie Arms with meals, real ale, WIFI and is child friendly. It also provides a newspaper service, milk, bread and is the local post office. There is a spacious children's play park and woodland walks all within easy walking distance of the cottage. A mile away towards Dalbeattie sits the impressive 12th century Motte of Urr, a fortified 'Motte and Bailey' area, built on rising ground with earthworks creating a deep and wide ditch around it. Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas are both within 5 miles and provide local shops and speciality stores and restaurants. There is also a swimming pool in Castle Douglas and a tourist information center. The nearest coastal villages are Kippford (7 miles) from where you can walk round to the sandy beaches of Rockcliffe (10 miles from Haugh of Urr). There is mountain biking at 7-stanes Dalbeattie forest trails, and the Haugh of Urr is an excellent stating point for many road biking excursions around the region including round Loch Urr or round the coast to Kircudbright.More
