Holly's Hideaway offers comfortable, contemporary accommodation for two, in a private annexe of the owner's house. Located in the peaceful small, rural village of Corsock, making it an ideal couples retreat. The nearby town of Castle Douglas is approximately 12 miles away and offers all the usual amenities you would expect of a small rural market town including an array of independent shops, restaurants and pubs, a swimming pool, a theatre a which also doubles as a cinema and an 18 hole golf course.
On the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, 300 square miles of rugged wild land which is one of only four "Dark Sky Parks" in the western world. It has an excellent network of facilities for visitors which also links to the 7Stanes Mountain Bike routes. The forest park can be accessed by car, cycle and on foot and the Raiders Road forest drive is open at selected times of the year for cars to drive through less accessible parts of the forest. The forest park is a haven for wildlife and the local Red Kite Trail gives superb opportunities for seeing Red Kites and other birds. Nearby Loch Ken is a busy water sports and course fishing destination with Galloway Activity Centre offering both land and water sports activities.
The Solway Firth is within a short drive and provides a seascape contrast to the forests and hills. Although Galloway has no ‘Munros’, discerning hill walkers cherish the remoteness of the Rhinns of Kells, the Merrick and the wild Silver Flow country as well as coastal hills such as Criffel and Screel offering superb views across the Solway to Cumbria.
Scotland’s culture and heritage can be explored at the many National Trust and Historic Scotland properties including Threave Castle near Castle Douglas and Broughton House in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright itself is a bustling harbour town with historic connections to the Art World through the likes of the Glasgow Boys and Jessie King and hosts regular exhibitions in numerous galleries including Kirkcudbright Galleries. The Dark Space Planetarium situated in the town offers the opportunity to explore our night skies and is well worth a visit and an ideal activity for those less inclement days.
