5 Star Galloway Cottage Sleeping 6 on Barwhillanty Estate
Situated in a peaceful location, with stunning views over open countryside, this detached property is located on Barwhillanty Estate and makes an idea holiday base from which to explore the surrounding area. Barwhillanty, which has been family run since 1884, is a 5000 acre estate set in the beautiful Galloway Hills of Kirkudbrightshire, South West Scotland. This 19th century farm house has recently been refurbished to a high standard and benefits from nearly 30km of picturesque walks on the estate – route maps are provided.
The surrounding area offers a tremendous amount to keep you occupied: golf courses, sailing, horse riding, cycling (both road and mountain – you are in the famous 7 Stanes country!), amongst many other adventurous activities. For those with young children there are also a number of great days out on your doorstep. If arts and culture are your thing, open your eyes and you will see exactly why the region has inspired so many artists, writers and craftsmen, from the Artist’s town of Kirkcudbright, the region’s infamous Spring Fling, the “Wickerman” amongst many other events, all year round. The Food Town of Castle Douglas is 7 miles away with everything you could need, plus a little more! Our rugged coastline with sandy coves and bays is <20miles away and the nearest pub and shop only 2 miles.
