Corra Cottage

Castle Douglas
Southern Scotland
3 Bedrooms
1 Bathroom
6 Guests
2 Dogs

Spacious, traditional detached cottage in a tranquil, rural location. The cottage has been carefully renovated and furnished to provide excellent holiday accommodation for families and groups of up to 6. The cottage has open views over neighbouring farmland to the high hills of Galloway, and the garden is visited by a variety of wild and bird life. It is conveniently situated within a few minutes' drive of Castle Douglas, known locally as The Food Town with many independent retailers.

There are plentiful opportunities to explore the local area including the historic Caerlaverock Castle with its unusual triangular floor plan and Moat Brae in Dumfries, where J M Barrie wrote Peter Pan. Leisure pursuits in the area include plentiful golfing opportunities including 18 hole courses at Castle Douglas and New Galloway with many other 18 hole and 9 hole golf courses available nearby including the Links Championship course at Southerness. The Forestry Commission 7Stanes Mountain Bike Trails are located throughout the region with the nearest being at Dalbeattie Forest about a 15 minute drive away and also in Dumfries at both Mabie & Ae Forests, a little further afield are the trails in the Galloway Forest Park (Britain's first designated Dark Sky Park). There are plethoras of walking opportunities within a short drive including beach, cliff top, forest and for those who seek something more strenuous, hill walks. Course and sea fishing are readily available throughout the area.

In autumn and winter large numbers of the Svalbard population of barnacle geese arrive at the RSPB Mersehead Reserve on the Solway Coast giving an unrivalled chance to see these amazing birds and other winter visitors - more information at:http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/m/mersehead/index.aspx . The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Centre at Caerlaverock, near Dumfries is also well worth a visit.

For the young at heart (and not so young) a visit to Cream O' Galloway should be considered with its adventure playground for all ages, farm tours, ice cream (you can have a go at making your own), pond dipping and wildlife walks are just a taster of what is available. The Cocoa Bean Factory is a must for all young chocoholics, where chocolate workshops are held daily, indoor and outdoor play areas, a cafe and a shop are on offer. For older children and adults, Galloway Activity Centre offers many water based activities including Sailing and Kayaking, land based activities are also offered.
