Semi-detached new barn conversion cottage in a very quiet area. The cottage sleeps 5 comfortably but could sleep 6 with a extra bed which could be put up in a bedroom, if needed, if asked in advance, this will mean there will be an extra charge of £30 put on. The kitchen is fully equiped and has a dining table which seats 6. Comfortable lounge with an arm-chair and 2 sofas which seats 7. 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. The cottage is part of a working poultry farm. Although has its own entrance, shared into 2 other Cottages. Dum...Semi-detached new barn conversion cottage in a very quiet area.

Castle Douglas is an 18th century market town that is also a designated Food Town with lots of local produce. There are around 50 local businesses in Castle Douglas that either produce or sell quality food and drink. The town is a thriving centre for prosperous local farming.

At the far end of the loch are Threave Gardens, open to visitors all year.

Nearby is Threave Wildfowl Refuge, an important place for wintering wildfowl, where visitors can watch the birds ...
How to get there
