    About this property

    Set in gardens with a delightful stream and pond, enjoy woodland walks and hillside trails and fishing on a nearby loch.
    "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 summerhouse and its own bridge over the stream. Marwhin House (swwr) and Marwhin Cottage (ref swws) also stand detached, situated 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. 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 National Trust 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.
    Large, beamed living room with open fire, patio doors and wooden floor. Well-equipped kitchen with wooden floor. Utility. Double bedroom with 6ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    "Great cottage up a rough track and sharing a drive with Marwhin house.Everything you need for a relaxing holiday in a good location, approx 10 mins from A75. Pond in the back garden which will be lovely in the summer.There's a small enclosed patio area which will be a sun trap in the summer.I do think the cottage needs a sofa, there's no support and my back was aching after a while.Other than that we had a great time and will try and come back."

    "Comfortable and well equipped cottage in a stunning and peaceful location. Wildlife abounds in the garden and grounds. If you want a restful and recuperative holiday this is the place to go."

    "Great location, very quiet, plenty of wildlife in the garden, Roe deer, Pheasants, Partridge etc.Would recommend for sure, ideal for anyone looking to get away from it.Very well spec'd cottage, good supply of timber for the fire, heating worked superbly (March and snow!!)8 on the value for money, one down side was the £50 for the two dogs, most cottages we have stayed in before range from free to £20 per dog."
