Grobdale of Girthorn

 

 

Nestled into the beautiful rolling Galloway hills in South West Scotland we are waiting to welcome you and provide a tranquil escape .

Either as your well deserved quiet relaxing R&R or a great base to explore more of our amazing surroundings.

The farm is 65 acres…

of pasture, hillside, river, wetlands and some woodland. We keep Herdwick sheep a Lakeland hardy breed, Tamworth pigs another tough heritage breed and various ducks, hens and guinea fowl. We are a happy relaxed fun farm with all our livestock outdoor reared, grown slowly to bring the best mature flavour to our meat and eggs. We supply the best local restaurants with our produce and a few local small businesses and homes. We try to reduce our impact on the environment as much as possible by keeping our food miles small.

When we came to the farm we had earmarked three outbuildings to convert to holiday cottages, The Dairy, The Croft and The Byre are beautiful stone single storey buildings with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and  valley. We are very proud of the finished cottages and hope you will enjoy them and feel that you’ve made the same right choice as us to spend some time here in Galloway.

The Dairy Holiday Cottage, Sleeps 4 in 2 sumptuous King Size Beds or Single beds

There is a small flight of three steps up or down to each bedroom otherwise this cottage is all on one level. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, one with a bath and shower, one with a walk in shower. There is a large well equipped kitchen with an electric eyelevel oven, microwave, separate hob, dishwasher, full height fridge freezer and island dining area for good old fashioned quality family time meals. The full height exposed beams in the ceiling give a traditional and airy feel to the living room that has  big comfy sofas with plenty of cushions and throws, a large smart TV and log burning stove to keep it warm and comfortable all year round. Underfloor heating kept at an ambient temperature warms the rooms perfectly and since is powered by a ground heat source pump reduces our carbon footprint quite substantially.
