Description

Castle Creavie Steading is set on a beautiful traditional Galloway farm, offering the visitor a peaceful and tranquil base to relax and unwind, whilst having the local facilities of Kirkcudbright only a few miles away. This former farm steading has been thoughtfully and carefully converted to make comfortable and friendly accommodation for up to six people. Full of charm and character with stunning, uninterrupted, panoramic views, it has oak floors, a real flame fire, French opening balcony doors and a spacious patio with BBQ to enjoy the varied birdlife, sunsets and dark star-studded skies. Castle Creavie Farm has prioritised on making wildlife habitats, ponds, planting hedges and native woodland trees, so the visitor can enjoy the farm walk, observe the day to day life on the farm, and there is always a field to walk the dogs or let the children fly their kites! A warm welcome awaits you at Castle Creavie, as well as a home baked tea tray on your arrival. Free range eggs, honey and home-made bread are available on request. The area around the property has numerous walks available, from scenic coastal walks to forest trails. With sailing, swimming, riding, fishing, golf, boat trips and water sports close by, there is sure to be something for everyone. Warmed by the gulf stream, there are many beautiful gardens to visit, including Threave Gardens (NT). Kirkcudbright is known as ‘the artists’ town’, and it attracts visitors throughout the year who are drawn by the harbour, the historic high street and the diverse range of annual events and visitor attractions. The popular programme of summer festivities culminates with the spectacular Tattoo, an event not to be missed.

About the local area

The unspoilt beauty of this south west corner of Scotland is the perfect antidote to the hurly burly of modern life. Here there are deserted beaches, magnificent forests, rugged moors and beautiful lochs, all unblemished and untouched by tourism. But Dumfries and Galloway is not only perfect for chilled-out holidays, if you want a bit more action you can also find a range of activities and sports, from walking and cycling to golf and fishing.

To the west of the region is the quiet market town of Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree. This is a popular area for walkers and cyclists with open rolling countryside and close by to the Galloway Forest Park. In contrast with gentle scenery of the Solway Firth the Galloway Hills to the north has beautiful moors, mountains, lakes and rivers, with at its heart the Galloway Forest Park, some 150,000 acres of forest land with waymarked trails that are ideal for trekking and cyclists.

Formal gardens and country parks can be found throughout this area, the foremost of which is Threave Garden and Castle just south of Castle Douglas along the shores of Loch Carlingwark, renowned for its horticultural gardens and woodland covering some sixty acres. To the north of the town Loch Ken provides for more strenuous activities such as waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing.

To the south are the sandy coves and estuarine mudflats of the Solway Firth. The charming coastal resort of Kirckcudbright sits half way along the coast and was once a busy shipping port but now has a more tranquil atmosphere. Further east The Colvend coast has some lovely stretches of coastline and coastal villages providing moorings for visiting yachts and boat hire.

Inland on the River Nith, Dumfries is the regions largest town and a great base from which to explore the whole area. The town is also renowned for its associations with Robert Burns who spent the last five years of his life here.
