Experience some of the finest scenery Dumfries & Galloway has to offer at this 250-year-old farm cottage set in the woodlands near Loch Ken.
This stone cottage is a true delight to stay in with original features and a style befitting of its era. An old farm cottage, its beamed ceilings, low doorways and sloping floors are a sight to behold, and the comfortable rooms are furnished with sturdy pine furniture and elegant fabrics. Sleeping up to five, the cottage will suit couples and families who are looking for a relaxing holiday with a wealth of cycling and walking options right on their doorstep. Enjoy a cosy evening in front of a wood-burning stove after cooking a delicious meal in the cottage's well-equipped kitchen, or spend some downtime in the rustic summer house. The double and twin bedrooms are an ideal size and will allow your cares to fade away with a comfortable night's sleep in this peaceful setting.
Surrounded by woodlands, rocks, flowering marshes, rivers and green hills with wonderful wildlife including badgers, otters and owls, it would be difficult to find a more beautiful and natural setting. Although rurally situated, the cottage is just 4 miles from the quaint village of Balmaclellan where you can pick up essentials, while the bustling market town of Castle Douglas is only a short drive away. Longshot is situated in the Galloway Forest Park, which is recognised as the UK's only Dark Sky Park, so you can gaze in wonder at a starry night's sky from the comfort of the cottage's beautiful woodland garden.
