3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Semi-detached new barn conversion cottage in a very quiet area. The cottage sleeps 5 comfortably but could sleep 6 with a fold up bed which could be put in, if asked in advance. The kitchen is fully equiped and has a dining table which seats 6. Comfortable lounge with an arm-chair and 2 sofas. Full central heating included in the price. The cottage has beautiful uninterupted views of the surrounding countryside and has a parking space for 2/3 cars. The cottage is part of a courtyard with ongoing development at the moment which when finished will really give extras to the property.

Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful unspoiled area which boasts many sandy beaches; a variety of golf courses; superb walking country in the Galloway Hills and a wealth of coastal walks. There are many other outdoor activities available in the local area in...

The Dairy totally exceeded our expectations! Our family (with a 21-year old and 17-year old) arrived after a week and a half of traveling around Europe and were in much need of a rest (and laundry facilities). The beds were comfortable, the skylights have shades (!), the laundry room is nicer than the one I have at home, and the...

The Dairy is one of the cottages at Drumlane Steading. It is the first one you met as you take the first entrance into the farm, sign is on the fence. Head for Laurieston off the Ayr road from castle Douglas. And we are about 1 half miles up that road on the left. Any problems phone
