Spacious country cottage with stylish interior set in beautiful countryside. Ideal for a romantic break. Great base to explore south west; Culzean Castle, Dumfries House, golf, fishing, cycling and walking all close by. A few miles to the Galloway Forest Park, Dark Sky Park, Robert Burns Museum and the coast. A real home from home.

Interaction with guests
I usually meet guests at the cottage to explain the heating system and answer any questions. There is lots of information in the cottage about local attractions, walks, restaurants and events and I'm happy to suggest things to do and see. I'm also happy for guests to call me if they require more information.
