This is a large , comfortable property in a good location for easy access to Castle Douglas. It is an easy walk in to the town and to the nearby park. We found a nice welcome pack on arrival which was much appreciated. The house is in a quiet location. It was cold weather during our stay and the central heating system is excellent.

This house is a real find. For a family of 5 it is always very difficult to find places with room to accommodate but this house was roomy yet cosy and had everything you would possibly need. Loved the proximity to the high street. The streetlights cafe had the best bacon rolls and the Greek tapas fantastic food. Would definitely stay again!

Lovely clean, comfy cottage in great location for Carlingwark Loch and shops. Recommend Street Lights cafe for lunch and Fish & Chip shop just down the road but it gets very busy so need to book a slot online. For bookworms a visit to Wigtown is a must. Culzean Castle and country park is also worth visiting.
