A very quiet, comfortable and well equipped cottage with fantastic views over Newton Stewart and the hills beyond. You can easily walk into town either along the main street or along the cycle way beside the river which is beautiful (although the driveway is quite steep and may be difficult for some). Perfectly situated for exploring the Galloway FRead moreorest, and for both countryside and coastal walks. Favourite places: Wigtown, Isle of Whithorn, Mull of Galloway and Portpatrick. Highly recommended. Hide
