    About this property

    In a peaceful and secluded valley with only sheep and cattle, this detached family farmhouse has wonderful views over open countryside.
    Situated on the 6000-acre Lincluden Estate, these three detached properties are presented to the highest standards. They are located in remote settings on the edge of the moors with delightful woodland walks and hillside trails up into forests. It is an area hugely popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities, and the Dalbeattie 7 Stanes cycling trail is also close by. There are many sandy beaches and forest trails to explore and many lovely gardens nearby as well for those seeking a slower pace of recreation.
    The surrounding area offers a tremendous range of activities for the visitor. Golf courses, sailing, horse riding, cycling and walking are all available close by, and there are tennis courts and swimming-pools in nearby Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Dumfries. Fishing is available by arrangement at Glen Kiln Loch with the first day free of charge (any days after are chargeable at £8 per adult and £4 per child/OAP). Many quaint villages await exploration including the coastal villages of the Isle of Whithorn, Port William (known as the Machars of Galloway and presented with the Pride of Galloway award) and the popular village of Portpatrick with stunning views over the North Channel to the Irish coast. A trip to Ireland from Stranraer also makes for a good day out. Dumfries, with shops, restaurants, museums and theatre, lies 10 miles away, while Castle Douglas, Scotland’s Food Town (8 miles), is a traditional market town with shops specialising in local produce. There are also many beautiful beaches for holidaymakers to enjoy. Shop 5 miles, pub 5½ miles.

    "Great place in a remote location. Great communal space (farmhouse kitchen with AGA) as well as well appointed rooms elsewhere. Beautiful location if a bit remote for some but lots of walks to take whilst identifying the local wildlife. Definitely one to recommend to everyone I know."
    Helen ‐ 28 Sep 2019
    "Another great stay. We love this place & it just feels like home!"
    G ‐ 5 Aug 2019
    "Holiday was excellent. House is well equipped and the wi-fi coverage was great."
    Alan ‐ 12 Jul 2019
    "Stunning farmhouse and location, exactly what we wanted. Fantastic wildlife and views, peace and quiet and superb comfortable beds !! Within easy reach of Lockerie for trains direct (1 hour) to both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Short 20 min car ride to Tesco at Dumfries open 24/7. Advised lack of wifi not an issue in fact pleasure departure from the outside world. Highly recommended would definitely stay again."
    Lesley ‐ 20 Mar 2019
    "Excellent time again. Our Family loves every minute."
    Amanda ‐ 11 Nov 2018
    "A wonderful house with excellent furnishings. Comfortable and spacious. I'm always apprehensive when I book somewhere new. This time I need not have worried. It was lovely. We could quite happily have stayed for a lot longer. Cannot wait to return."
    Kathy ‐ 5 Nov 2018
    "The only negative was crockery/ cutlery could have been cleaner. We assumed that was left to guests, because house is too big for one woman to clean. Maybe a team of cleaners? Otherwise everything was perfect."
