No need to get in the car to eat out in the evening, visit the microbrewery or buy in your provisions! We love having families to stay and provide games, children’s books etc and a travel cot. Grandparents can come too as we sleep seven. It can rain as well as shine in Galloway so our cloakroom has a heater and dehumidifier – great if you are doing some walking or cycling. We suggest a number of walks, drives and cycles starting from the house. And our secure cycle store has room for up to 3 bicycles.
