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

Sitting in isolation among the rambling hills of Galloway, on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park (Britain's First Dark Sky Park), this comfortable detached farmhouse offers the opportunity for a true wilderness holiday and is in an ideal spot for exploring the great outdoors: Walking, the Southern Upland Way is almost on your doorstep, fishing where a local permit covers 8 lochs, or there are numerous opportunities for sea fishing within easy reach, as are a variety of beaches.
For the more adventurous mountain biking is nearby at Kirroughtree where you will find part of the Forestry Commission's 7stanes trails. Golf courses and pony trekking are within a short drive for the more active or view the lovely scenery for those lazy days. Slightly further away is Stranraer for swimming, leisure centre, shopping, eating out. The ferry port of Cairnryan is close-by for day trips to Ireland. The famous golf course at Turnberry in Ayrshire is 30 miles away. Wigtown for the book festival is only about 20 minutes away.
