Property Description

"Idyllically set on a 3000-acre estate..."

Enjoying an idyllic situation on the 3000-acre Crofts Estate, surrounded by the Galloway Hills, these holiday cottages have enviable, dramatic views towards the Solway Firth and Cumbrian Hills beyond. Accessed along a private drive, and adjoining a cluster of well-maintained estate buildings, Stable Cottage (ref UUD) makes a romantic hideaway for two, offering stylishly furnished accommodation – its walls adorned with the original work of various Scottish artists. The larger Victorian detached Gardener’s Cottage (ref UXT) has been elegantly furnished, and features an attractive shared garden with a bridge over a burn and a small waterfall. Arkland Mill (ref STTZ) stands detached with a lovely large garden, a summer house and its own bridge over the stream. Marwhin House (SWWR) and Marwhin Cottage (ref SWWS) also stand detached, standing within 25 yards of each other, still with there own privacy, the latter two properties being set in gardens with a delightful stream and pond. Woodland walks and hillside trails radiate from the doorstep, with fishing available on a nearby estate loch. Dumfries lies just 12 miles away, where there are plenty of shops, restaurants and museums, as well as a good theatre. Castle Douglas (8 miles) is a traditional market town with individual shops specialising in food and local produce. There are many beautiful beaches within easy reach along the Solway, and the NT Threave Gardens, 8 miles, makes for an interesting day out. Other tourist attractions in the area include the Galloway Kite Trail, the Galloway Forest Park and golf courses and museums in Dumfries. Village shop and pub within 4 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. It was lovely and quiet, and we really enjoyed the red squirrels. Nov 2012.
  2. The photographs do not do justice to the cottage. It is in the most beautiful location, quiet and peaceful with the most stunning walks just outside the door. Central to places further afield. The cottage itself is decorated to a high standard with everything you need. The place is extremely comfortable. The bed is the most comfortable we have slept in away from home. Bathroom, contains bath as well as shower. The kitchen is modern and very up to date. The log fire makes it even more special.High beams in living areas. Even the dog loved it. Oct 2011.
