Rest the mind and body at tranquil Castle Creavie. Peacefully situated with stunning views over the Galloway hills this former farm steading has been converted to provide accommodation for up to six. Located on a working farm, close to the harbour town of Kirkcudbright the Steading is full of charm and character with oak floors, real flame stove and French opening balcony windows. Guests are welcome to observe the daily life of the farm, and enjoy the signposted farm walks, there is always a field to play in and walk the dog.
The Artists town of Kirkcudbright is a short drive away. Here you will find many interesting independent shops and art galleries hidden along its narrow closes. Broughton House and Garden, a National Trust for Scotland property are well worth a visit. Close by is Kirkcudbright Wildlife & Conservation Park with a wide variety of endangered animals. For the young at heart Cream O'Galloway is within a 20 minute drive, not only do they produce organic ice cream but have an extensive adventure playground for all ages plus other activities. Nearby in Twynholm is The Cocoa Bean Factory where children can participate in chocolate workshops, there are also indoor & outdoor play areas. (The hot chocolate is a must!) For the more adventurous Laggan Outdoor and Loch Ken Activity Centre offer land and water based activities. At Laggan you will find one of the longest zip wires in Europe.
For those who simply want to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings there are plenty of opportunities for walking, be it hill cliff top or forest. Wildlife surrounds the cottage, you can relax on the spacious patio and enjoy the tranquil setting with outstanding views and sunsets and the varied bird life. Although not within the Dark Skies Park, star gazing is outstanding at Castle Creavie as there is very little light pollution. Sandy beaches are within easy reach at The Dhoon, Brighouse Bay and Sandgreen.
Free-range eggs, honey and homemade bread is available on request. A home baked tea tray will be left ready for your arrival.
