Self-catering that feels like home is how we like to think about Southfield. This spacious, three-bedroom Georgian townhouse is in the heart of Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town. Exploring the many book shops is highly recommended. Trying to wear out the kids? We are close to sheltered sandy beaches, great cycling, plenty of hills for long walks and some fantastic days out for all ages. There’s one of Scotland’s botanic gardens nearby and fabulous star gazing in Galloway Forest Park, the UK’s first Dark Sky Park.


Families travelling with the older generation appreciate our double en-suite bedroom on the ground floor. There’s a newly renovated kitchen (2018) plus a comfortable sitting room with large screen tv. On the first floor there’s a large double bedroom, a room with three singles for children and friends and a family bathroom, that now includes a shower over the bath. There’s a more grown up sitting room as well also with large screen tv,  so no more arguments over who wants to watch what!


Wigtown’s location is perfect for trips to the Galloway Hills for walking and for keen mountain bikers one of the Seven Stanes courses is located nearby at Kirroughtree outside Newton Stewart. There’s no need to jump in the car – walks from the front door  will take you to the nearby bird hide overlooking the Wigtown Bay Nature Reserve. On a rainy day we definitely recommend supporting our local bookshops. Southfields is opposite The Bookshop, immortalised in Shaun Bythell’s critcially acclaimed Diary of a Bookseller. At night head for Britain’s First dark Sky Park in the Galloway Hills to star gaze.


Relax in our large walled garden with different areas for the whole family. You can read quietly in the sheltered courtyard as the swallows dart overhead. Eat lunch at our purpose built picnic table. Let the children escape safely to set up camp in the treehouse towards the end of the garden.
