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 traditional cottage in a delightful, peaceful and rural location overlooking a small lochan, it boasts stunning views over the garden and out to the surrounding fields. The cottage would suit both couples or a family looking to explore the delights that Dumfries & Galloway has to offer.
The property is close to the towns of Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas, and is also within easy reach of safe beaches and coastal walks.

Castle Douglas & Kirkcudbright provide an excellent range of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs for you to frequent during your holiday. The Solway Coast with its sandy beaches and rocky coves is within a half hour's drive or Loch Ken, with water sports and excellent coarse fishing, is very close. The nearby Galloway Forest Park provides visitors with stunning scenery, walking, mountain biking, star gazing and wildlife spotting opportunities.
Another beautiful attraction only a short drive away is Threave Gardens. It is a garden for all seasons, a landscaped beauty and a haven for wildlife. Take a stroll through the secret garden, rockery and walled garden then find the amazing 19th Century Threave House at centre of the estate. After all that exploring enjoy a refreshment and bite to eat in the cafe.

The location of this cottage will certainly not disappoint and suits either the most active of visitor, or those looking for a a relaxing and peaceful break.
