Gelston village is a quiet backwater, the ideal place to relax amidst the green pastures and woodlands of rural Galloway. The area is beloved of birdwatchers and walkers, golfers and fishermen and there are a number of fine sandy beaches within a short drive. Boat hire, sailing, windsurfing and watersports available on Loch Ken. Nearby Threave Gardens are well worth a visit and bikes can be hired to explore the country lanes.

The accommodation offers FOUR bedrooms: all with TV’s, 2 doubles and 1 twin.1 further twin has adjacent en-suite bathroom with shower over bath. Bathroom: with shower over corner bath.

Amenities: bed linen towels, electric, gas and oil included. 2 dogs welcome. Regret no smoking. Additional info: All rooms are on ground level and may suit some disabled visitors (Grade 3).
