The Corn Mill Studio,



The Corn Mill Studio has one bedroom that can sleep 1-4 people. It has a low double bed with memory foam mattress and one single bunk bed. It is a cosy space for 4 to share, not much room to manoeuvre but very comfortable for sleeping and relaxing. It has 4 reading lights, a desk and two chairs with a deep set window looking out onto the stream that used to power the old Corn Mill.

The large open studio kitchen has a day bed sofa that could suit an extra person to sleep. It also has two large tables allowing for creativity and play, make yourself at home- a good space for writing, drawing, painting, printing, still photography, cooking, eating and playing board games (we have a good collection!), there is a Smart TV Monitor and Xbox3 (a few games and DVD’s available).

The fully equipped kitchen has plenty of space and all the cooking basics to make delicious food from our local produce for one or family size meals. It also has a washing machine/dryer, fridge with small freezer compartment, 4 hob electric cooker/grill, toaster and stainless steel sink. We have a digital radio / music centre, popcorn and candy floss machine too!

The continental breakfast provided is delivered to your kitchen and includes locally produced foods, we can cater to any dietary requirements, so please let us know what you like to eat. Breakfast comprises of cereal (gluten free is our speciality and we provide a Coeliac friendly kitchen), local non-pasteurised organic milk / non-dairy option, toast and fresh butter / non-dairy option with local jam, honey or marmalade from Seville, Spain, because it is the best marmalade on the planet. Fresh espresso is possible with our stove top steam percolators, traditional breakfast tea and herbal non-caffeinated options and pressed fruit juice are also provided. All to be enjoyed in your home from home, eat in or in the garden.

The garden surrounding the studio is unfenced, bordered by large deciduous trees; it has a lawn, organic permaculture herb borders, a spring water burn runs through and there’s a clothes drying whirligig for your use. The property is adjacent to the large and beautiful community permaculture garden with edible forest fruits, shrubs and flowers for all to enjoy in summer and autumn.

There is no internet connection or mobile/4G coverage in the Corn Mill Studio (due to the very thick old stone walls), but free WiFi is available in the village shop cafe and 4G outside (depending on your provider).

The Corn Mill Studio has green energy electric central heating throughout, which gets nice and cosy, and it stays naturally cool in summer.

It is one of the oldest buildings in Auchencairn, built in the early 1700’s. It has a very solid quietness surrounded by wild nature at it’s vivid best; lots of birds, plants and beautiful landscapes to enjoy. The Auchencairn community extends a warm welcome and has all the provisions you need for a  relaxing, fun and interesting visit.

Your host, Cate Ross, is a professional creative practitioner, community education specialist and a Galloway and Southern Ayreshire UNESCO Biosphere Experience Guide.
