Nether Barr Steading is a fine stone built courtyard steading that has been sensitively converted into six self-catering lodges with a small restaurant and bar situated on one side of the courtyard.

Set in 15 acres of farmland elevated above the River Cree, the Nether Barr enjoys magnificent views towards the Galloway Hills.

Nestled in a peaceful area of Galloway yet within walking distance or a short drive from Newton Stewart,the Nether Barr offers tranquil and comfortable holiday accommodation.

The cottages provide a “home from home” comfort and are situated off the courtyard which dates back to the 1800’s when the steading was originally a farm owned by the Earl of Galloway.

Nestled in a peaceful area in southwest Scotland and yet within walking distance or a short drive from Newton Stewart for shopping and the gateway to the Galloway Forest Park, there is plenty to see and do in Dumfries & Galloway. This is an ideal spot for mountain biking, we are close to Kirroughtree and Glentrool, part of the 7 stanes. We can offer short breaks all year round.

  • The living areas are open plan incorporating lounge/dining area and fitted kitchen.
  • The kitchens are fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and washer / dryer.
  • The bathrooms have shaver points, showers and baths.
  • The lounge areas have DVD players and flat screen TVs with built in freeview. We can also provide additional Z-beds in the larger lodges if required.

    "We booked the Hay Loft at Nether Barr Steading for a late break after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! The property was advertised as one single and one double bedroom, but what we were not aware of from previous listings was the size of the property. Much bigger than we expected.The upstairs runs for the length of the building pictured alongside the listing, with the living room/kitchen /diner being in the extension. There were dvd and cd players alongside the widescreen tv, perfect for those rainy days. We had our own books and dvds with us, but the owners have a huge selection of dvds, books and games in the office for those less prepared. Spotlessly clean,"
