Magical Drumwhill Bungalow is a simple, welcoming 3 bedroom holiday home set in the glorious, peaceful surroundings of South West Scotland.
With its nature-themed rooms and brand new fitted kitchen it is the ideal destination to get away from it all.
Located just above Woodhall Loch the bungalow is surrounded by spectacular views.
It is a very special place, living in harmony and connection with nature and bringing the outdoors in.
A perfect base to explore coast, hills, lochs and other sights
Upon arrival you will drive down the magical lanes through ancient woods and mossy rocks, to this idyllic, unspoilt place. It is so green and alive, there is moss and lichen everywhere and the air is clean, pure and full of life. The loch is vast, beautifully framed by mountains behind. Situated in a Dark Sky area the stars at night are just spectacular and seem to go on forever.
You are likely to meet a plethora of wildlife. Deer on the lane peering at you through the trees, horses come for a nuzzle, Shetland ponies galloping with glee and sheep munching the grass in the fields. In the garden the birds are waiting to greet you with their songs. In the summer the hedges hum with the sound of bees. The rabbits play, the Red Kites soar overhead, circling as they hunt. At night you will hear the owls and maybe see a hedgehog, fox or badger.
You will feel as though you are in your very own fairy tale.
