1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Dumfries, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Sleeps 1 - 2 people (2 well behaved dogs allowed) Postcode - DG2 8PZ. This charming wee renovated barn is set amidst 70 acres of rolling farmland in glorious Galloway, yet lies only 4 miles from the busy country town of Dumfries and twelve miles from the food town of Castle Douglas in an ideal touring base. Steeped in history, blessed with stunning scenery and enjoying world-class mountain biking, golf and other activities. Dumfries and Galloway has something for everyone, with many rocky and sandy beaches to explore, village crafts and museums to visit. Golf, fishing, pony trekking, bird watching, sailing and windsurfing all close by, with Mabie Forest, Ae Forest and Dalbeattie Forest all offering excellent mountain biking and walks for all abilities. Nearby towns offer excellent shopping as well as a selection of cafes and restaurants.... Read more
