Stunning Georgian mansion located on the edge of Galloway Forest Park, surrounded by beautiful gardens and superb countryside. Elegant and refined, it is the ideal getaway for a family or group of friends seeking a luxurious stay somewhere special.
A fine example of a traditional Scottish manse, this home was once home to the local minister of the quaint village of Carsphairn. Now a beautiful home that’s been decorated to the highest standard, the house is the perfect backdrop for a reunion with friends or family, providing a stylish and luxurious backdrop for your holiday snaps and an overall opulent place to stay. Comfortably sleeping a party of 12, you can look forward to your visit and the prospect of exploring surrounding Dumfries and Galloway.
Whilst maintaining traditional Georgian elements throughout, the property has been renovated to the highest standard and boasts a luxurious yet classic style. A combination of antique furnishings, roll-top baths and feature fireplaces in the bedrooms add to the overall charm. Bright colour schemes have been used throughout, giving the property a fresh and radiant atmosphere. Feature wallpaper and busy artwork break up the otherwise fairly minimalist style.
One of the most calming rooms in the house is the spacious farmhouse kitchen, which offers the perfect space to enjoy a lazy breakfast on cold winter mornings thanks to its underfloor heating and warming traditional Aga. Those who don’t fancy braving the Aga to cook dinner can make use of the modernised electric Aga with gas range. A regal dining room offers a lovely space to host a dinner party and celebrate time together. Retire to the formal sitting room and catch up in front of the flickering wood burner, or collapse onto a sofa in the lounge and enjoy a DVD or Sky TV. Those looking for a touch of privacy can find solitude in the study, which boasts a small library of books to enjoy.
The majority of the bedrooms can be found upstairs on the first floor, accessible by a bright and spacious hallway. The bedrooms all offer wonderful views of the surrounding gardens and Scottish countryside, and have charming feature fireplaces and lovely antiques dotted about. One of the two shared family bathrooms boasts a roll-top bath and small library of books, inviting you to unwind in the bubbles after a long day of outdoor activities.
The second floor is a more modern area of the property, offering a spacious double bedroom with contemporary Velux windows. This bedroom also has an en-suite, and its elevated position ensures wonderful 360-degree views.
This property benefits from a picture-perfect garden, where fruit and vegetables grow in a pretty walled area. You can enjoy a BBQ and make use of the garden furniture or play ball games on the lawn at the front of the house. Outdoor storage for sporting equipment can be arranged in advance.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
