Blates Mill - Castle Douglas

Code: BL01ST

Holiday property description

A 17th Century  former mill cottage offering quaint and simple holiday accommodation in an idyllic wooded setting and surrounding grounds of an acre or so., it is not unusual to see Woodpeckers in the garden. Woodhall Loch is just across the road while Loch Ken is only a short drive or a "good walk". The cottage is on the Red Kite trail and within easy reach of the Galloway Forest Park, Britain's first designated Dark Sky Park. Coarse fishing is available by permit on Woodhall Loch.  Nearby Loch Ken, which is also an excellent coarse fishery, has the Galloway Activity Centre for dinghy, windsurfing and canoe instruction/hire plus other activities and the Loch Ken Marina with water skiing.

The Galloway Hills are just a short drive away as are the many coves and beaches along the Solway Coast.  Castle Douglas known locally as 'The Food Town' and Kirkcudbright known as 'The Artists Town' are within a 20 minute drive both towns offer many independent and interesting shops.
