    About this property

    A wing of a grand property with a private hot tub, two wood burners and TVs in all the bedrooms.
    With attention to detail at every turn, S44183 is the perfect place to relax in. Cosy up in front of the wood burner in the lounge or enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub whilst savouring the stunning sea views. S44183 is the wing of Auchenhay House, a stunning manor house set at the end of a tree lined driveway. Ideally located with beaches and a National Scenic Area close by as well as opportunities for hill walking, mountain biking and watersports or perhaps you’d prefer to visit a renowned garden or an ancient woodland? Whilst in a delightfully rural location the property is only a short drive from the harbour town of Kirkcudbright. Known as ’the artists’ town’, Kirkcudbright attracts visitors throughout the year drawn by the harbour, the historic high street and the diverse range of annual events and visitor attractions. The popular programme of summer festivities culminates with the spectacular Tattoo, an event not to be missed.

    "S44183 is very comfortable and well equipped. The location is quiet and peaceful."
    Sue ‐ 30 Sep 2018
    "Took 1 point off for equipment - TV was a bit tricky. Otherwise, we had a lovely time and Sue & Martin could not have been more helpful and friendly. We loved the pigs too."
    Alan ‐ 16 Sep 2018
    "We stayed at S44183 for 1 week in September. The accommodation is very nice, clean and spacious. The hot tub is great once you get the hang of timing the lighting of the wood burner. The owners, Sue and Martin are excellent hosts. The local area has some nice places to explore like Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Gatehouse of Fleet. If you want to travel further, Dumfries, Stranraer and Ayr are nice to visit. There are some lovely bays to have a walk and a picnic, Rockcliffe and Carrick Bay are very nice.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to return in the future. Alan & Linda"

    "A little piece of heaven. So peaceful and picturesque. Would go back whenever we could. Owners were always on hand and so pleasant and helpful."
    Peter ‐ 3 Sep 2018
    "A very comfortable place to stay! Well equipped and modern. Spotlessly clean. Lots of nice design touches - particularly liked varied modern takes on chandelier! Very comfortable king size beds. Great showers. Large range style oven. A fascinating variety of books. Sue was welcoming and helpful, and a highlight for our 5 year old was feeding bananas to the pigs as Sue had suggested. Loved waking up to views of the sea (a few miles away, but still stunning with Isle of Whithorn in the distance), and nice to have a large field to run around in. Overall, exceeded our expectations. We loved the area - the many unspoilt beaches (Kippford, Doon, Sandyhills), the Isle of Whithorn, the Mull of Galloway (and the drives by the sea to get there), Drumlanrig (and the drive through the hills to get there)"

    "Lovely week spent here. Very helpful owners. Worth noting that the hot tub requires a fire lit approx 3 hours before you wish to use it. In our case, the weather was so hot that once we'd lit it once, it remained warm enough for a cool-down dip for a few days.Very tranquil and private spot, great for unwinding."

    "S44183 is only 5 minutes by car from Kirkcudbright, which is a delightful little town with many good places to eat (including what could be the best fish and chip shop ever). S44183 itself is very quiet and comfortable with countryside views. There are great countryside and seaside walks within easy reach."
    Stephen ‐ 16 Jun 2018
    "We had a really nice stay in this lovely house. The hot tub was a real bonus as were the open spacious grounds.Very friendly and helpful owners and we would certainly consider visiting this property again."
    Alan ‐ 8 Apr 2018
    "This is our second visit to S44183 and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. The property is spacious, clean and has everything you could ask for with very friendly and welcoming hosts. There is so much to do in the surrounding area and there is something for everyone - we even managed to find a local pub that specialises in gluten free and dairy free food (they sold gluten free beer as well !!). Would highly recommend and we are already planning our trip back next year :)"
    Richard ‐ 24 Mar 2018
    "Beautiful place for a quiet getaway. It was freezing when we went so we hunkered down with a couple of bottles of wine and enjoyed the warmth of the fires and hot tub. Would recommend it to anyone. I'd go back next weekend!"
    Geraldine ‐ 6 Jan 2018
    "A lovely spot for a quiet, tranquil stay. The property is comfortable and restful. Overall very nice but one or 2 things could be improved.A few plastic covered seat pads for sitting outside at the table when it is sunny but cold and the wooden seats are wet. There should be abundant kindling and fire lighters for the hot tub-guests shouldn't have to buy extra. The hot tub lid is extremely heavy and needs a fair bit of strength to move-not sure what the solution is-if it would be possible to get something lighter? The countryside around is beautiful and well worth exploring.I would recommend a stay here."
