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

A classic seaside holiday home in a private setting with wonderful views over the Urr Estuary making this somewhere that you will want to return to time and again. A large mature garden surrounds the house and is beautifully maintained including large lawned area together with superb varieties of shrubs including Rhododendrons and Azaleas and other mature trees and flowerbeds.The house's traditional layout affords spacious accommodation including a large sitting room together with dining room with a snug seating area. The original features of the house have been maintained so that whilst it has been modernised to provide all necessary facilities it also retains a timeless elegance.
The bustling seaside village of Kippford is a mecca for water sports with yacht moorings on the river and a busy sailing club running frequent events and regattas.
The village centre is just a short walk from the house and has two pubs together with a tea room/craft shop. The area is a popular holiday destination with many historical sites to visit together with places to visit such as Loch Arthur Tea Rooms which is also an outlet for locally grown and produced produce and particularly excellent cheeses.
South West Scotland is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty which can be enjoyed from pleasant walks within the Galloway Forest Park or along the Solway Coast. Cycling and mountain biking is superbly catered for with quiet country roads and excellent mountain bike routes on the 7Stanes Forestry Commission Trails, the nearest of which is at Dalbeattie, while Mabie Forest is also just a short drive away. Golf courses abound be it recreational nine hole courses or testing Championship Link Courses such as the one at Southerness.
All in all Craigrathan is a holiday house which will be sure to please all tastes.
