Property code: CA372

A refurbished semi-detached cottage in a quiet setting, overlooking the River Bladnoch and with other prime fishing and walking locations close by.

Take some time for yourself or relax with up to three friends or family members when you stay at this quiet riverside holiday home. Overlooking the River Bladnoch and with the Cree and Palnure Burn also close by, this semi-detached property is sheer heaven for the eager angler. Enjoy more than 10 miles of privately owned salmon and trout fishing, explore your rural Scottish surroundings on foot or by bike and head some 7.5 miles into the famous Galloway Forest Park to go wildlife watching. Walk 3.5 miles into Kirkcowan to visit the local pub or drive approximately 8 miles to visit Wigtown, Scotland's designated national book town. Keep going for another mile or so to discover beautiful beaches and bays.

Return home to the comfort of your inviting, riverside cottage after a long day's fishing or walking out in the hills. Step in through the back door of the charming holiday home to find the newly finished kitchen/diner. Prepare a tasty meal with fresh, local produce and enjoy it together as you relive the fun of the day and discuss tomorrow's great adventures. Stretch out for the evening in your homely lounge and soak up the warmth of the open fire on cooler nights. Play games, read a book or watch a film on TV together as you luxuriate in the tranquillity of the property. The master bedroom takes in beautiful views across the private garden and the river and the second bedroom is just as comfortable and, with all the accommodation here on one level, the family bathroom is also easily accessible. 

When the weather is fine, make the most of the privacy of your spacious and peaceful garden. For larger family gatherings there are two more houses on the same estate, The Lodge and The Coach House, which can all be booked together.
