Unwind in the Scottish countryside at an idyllic retreat in Dumfries and Galloway. Located in a rural hamlet amongst a small selection of properties, this well-thought-out family holiday home is the perfect base for your outdoor adventure holiday. The spacious cottage happily sleeps eight guests and two dogs, perfect for an extended family or two smaller groups, while two further cottages close by sleep an additional four guests.

The property has been decorated with pure comfort in mind, creating the perfect homely atmosphere in every room. This farmhouse-style home offers plenty of spacious rooms, giving everybody plenty of space to rest and unwind. Pastel colours are used to create calming bedrooms, and the living room has a neutral decor which creates a cosy space to enjoy in the evenings. The rural location ensures wonderful far-reaching views from every window.

After a long day of exploring the local area, come home to the spacious sitting room where an abundance of seating options offer a great space to kick back in front of the Sky TV. You may, however, prefer to unwind in the charming conservatory, where you can sit with a good book or enjoy looking out for the local wildlife around you. Meals can be both prepared and enjoyed in the open-plan kitchen/diner, a lovely space where you can keep the cook company as dinner is made. Creating an evening meal or packed lunches for the day ahead will be no issue in this spacious room, and an electric range oven makes cooking easy. Separate to the kitchen, you’ll find a handy little utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and sink, the perfect spot for storing muddy boots and outdoor equipment.

Head upstairs to find all four bedrooms: two double bedrooms offer comfortable sleeping spots for the parents of the group, both well equipped with plenty of space to store all your holiday clothes. A further twin bedroom is the perfect spot for younger siblings or cousins enjoying an exciting sleepover. The final bedroom is a cosy single with a sloped ceiling and skylight, making a lovely room for one, or for two children with the use of the pull-out trundle bed.

A generous garden is situated to the rear of the property, with plenty of enclosed lawn space offering a secure place for children or pets to play. Enjoy drinks on the patio or dine alfresco on the garden furniture on warm summer evenings as the sun goes down.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The house is spacious and well equipped. The location is easy to find and well isolated. The larger town of Castle Douglas is not too far away. Hosts are friendly and helpful.

If you want somewhere remote, quiet and comfortable with friendly owners who live in a cottage next door, this is the place for you. Countryside walks and a forest trail are nearby and there is a village shop and post office in Balmaclellan which is a couple of miles away. The nearest pubs are in New Galloway and Dalry but you need to drive. If youRead more want more family entertainment, there are plenty of things to do within a 30 minute or so by car. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
