COVID-19 Update

We are a small, dedicated team who pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers and owners. We have worked hard to achieve Feefo Platinum standard for delivering exceptional customer and we will continue to try and adhere to this even during the current crisis. We are trying to be socially responsible & morally fair in discussions with our holiday-makers and cottage owners alike.

We will be contacting all our holiday-makers who are not able to take up their holiday due to the COVID19 restrictions to issue a voucher which will allow them to re-book an alternative date. This is being undertaken on a week by week basis rolling forward.  If you have a booking and have not been contacted yet then please be patient, please don’t contact us unless it is more than 7 days after your booked arrival date.

With thousands of bookings across 270 properties and their respective owners to liaise with, it’s a huge jigsaw for us to complete, particularly when we can’t be in the office due to the current restrictions. This does mean that we are not able to respond in our usual quick & efficient way.

Please be assured that we will be in touch as soon as possible and we are very grateful for your support and patience at this time

Holiday in style at this carefully renovated and modernised historic mansion house which is superbly suited for family holidays or occasions be it wedding parties or to celebrate a special birthday. The renovation and modernisation has retained all the original character and is now luxuriously finished to ensure an enjoyable holiday whether for a short break or longer and is a superb base for a family holiday and ideal touring location.

Castle Douglas is an attractive and busy Market Town with an excellent range of shops to suit all tastes; in particular it has many restaurants, Deli's and Cafes resulting in it being hailed as a culinary centre of excellence in Southern Scotland. The town nestles within the picturesque and peaceful Galloway countryside and the local area is recognised as being of outstanding natural beauty.

The local Hills are popular with walkers and cyclists with varied routes suitable for all abilities. The Southern Upland Way long distance walk is near by running from Portpatrick in the west through to Cockburnspath, whilst the total length extends to 212 miles for committed walkers it is possible to select day walks based on a part of the route.

There are nature reserves close including Rough Island at Kippford which is accessed by a tidal causeway and Castramont Wood which is superb for Bluebells in the spring. Outdoor activities include water sports on the Solway Firth and inland at Loch Ken, horse riding, quad biking and golf are all available locally, as is the popular 7 Stanes Trails offering world class mountain biking. Rod hire is available in the town and fishing is available on Carlingwark Loch on the southern edge of the town.

The historic cities of Edinburgh and Carlisle, along with cosmopolitan Glasgow, are all within easy reach for enjoyable day trips. The castles and abbeys in the Scottish Borders are also easily accessible, as is the whole of Dumfries and Galloway with its dramatic coastline, unspoilt villages and local produce.
