Falbae Cottage - Creetown
Holiday property description
A bird-watcher's paradise in the peace and tranquility of the Galloway countryside, Falbae Cottage sits in its own enclosed grounds with panoramic views to Cairnsmore of Fleet and Wigtown Bay. Wake to the sound of birds, the curlew or cuckoo calling and swallows chattering. Watch the sun go down over the bay and look out for the barn owl at dusk.
Relax in the cottage and garden, letting nature come to your window, or explore Falbae's forty acres on meandering grass paths through woods and beside ponds teaming with wildlife.
A haven for visitors and wildlife alike but with easy access - Creetown and the well-known Gem Rock Museum are only 3 miles from the cottage. Within a short drive are beaches and superb rocky shorelines, small towns for shopping and eating out and forest walks to hidden hill lochs. National Cycle Route 7 passes close by with a local ride to the Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve and Kirroughtree Forest, part of the 7Stanes Mountain Bike network, is within a 20 minute drive. The Galloway Forest Park has also been designated Britain's first Dark Skies Park as it is a superb location for star watching.
The area is renowned for golf, birdwatching, fishing, walking and the many beautiful gardens of South West Scotland. Logan Botanic Gardens, Castle Kennedy and Threave Gardens are all within easy reach as well as many smaller gardens and nurseries.
The cottage's garage is available for secure storage of bikes, fishing gear, golf clubs and 'wet kit'.
Nearby Wigtown, Scotland's Booktown is a must and the Food Town of Castle Douglas and Artist's Town of Kirkcudbright are both within easy driving distance.

Falbae Cottage Reviews
5 star reviewIt's a pity that a category using more stars is not available as five stars do not do justice to the quality of accommodation, the hospitality of the hosts or the beautiful environment literally on the doorstep. Very very highly recommended.5* review - great to hear that you liked it so much, thank you.
