Description

Set amidst 36 acres of pasture land this pair of cottages each offer a cosy retreat for couples. Once a stable for working farm horses, Stable cottage enjoys a beautiful rural location on a small farm yet is only 7 miles from the country town of Dumfries, the main centre of the region. There is so much to see on the farm with 3 acres of woodland available and an abundance of wild birds as well as free range hens, geese, rheas and pedigree Galloway cattle and sheep in abundance and the owners are developing a wetland area. A skein of barnacle geese regularly fly over the farm to the nearby estuary. For history lovers there are battle sites, stone circles, abbeys, imposing castles and round towers to explore.
Stable Cottage is ideal for couples but could be booked together with Bothy Cottage to offer accommodation for 4/5.

About the local area

The area is a haven for artists inspired by the landscape and attracted by the quality of light. For great mountain biking, the acclaimed 7 Stanes at Mabie forest is virtually on the doorstep and for the less adventurous there are attractive forest walks. The stunning Colvend Coast is less than 30 minutes drive; the artists’ town of Kirkcudbright is to the west; an abundance of fishing opportunities and a superb choice of golf courses including a championship links course at Southerness and of course, some superb hill and coastal walks. The award winning Loch Arthur farm shop is only a mile from the cottage and has an excellent range of organic cheeses and fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs and freshly baked breads.
