Description

The Dairy is quite simply a stunning barn conversion, which is part of a courtyard of three luxury holiday cottages converted in 2020. With their eye for detail, the owners have transformed these former farm buildings into a little bit of heaven in the most glorious of surroundings. Grobdale of Girthon is a small farm on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, where you can enjoy peace and tranquillity yet be easily accessible to all this beautiful corner of south west Scotland has to offer.

The Dairy really offers the ultimate in luxury living, from the living room with its comfy sofas and cosy wood burners, and a well equipped kitchen, to the sumptuous bedrooms and modern bathrooms. Outside, nestled in the beautiful rolling Galloway Hills, there are 65 acres for you to explore and provide a tranquil escape. Without doubt, a stay at Grobdale of Girthon will want you coming back for more!

Whilst set in a beautiful rural location, Grobdale of Girthon is only 6 miles from the picturesque town of Gatehouse of Fleet, which has a variety of excellent eating places, two very well stocked shops and a pharmacy. There are many attractions in and around the town including the Mill on the Fleet Visitor Centre and Cardoness Castle. There are also delightful beaches within a few minutes drive of the town, including Mossyard and Cardoness.

With mountain biking, fishing, scenic coastal walks and forest trails, golf and water sports close by, there is something for everyone. A visit to Kirkcudbright is a must! Known as ’the artists’ town’, it attracts visitors throughout the year drawn by the harbour, 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. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.

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.
