The kitchen-dining area is fully equipped to suit all self-catering needs: it includes microwave, larder-style fridge with large ice box, dishwasher and washing machine/tumble dryer. Water is sourced from its own well, filtered, sterilised and double-pumped to ensure an excellent water pressure enabling, for example, both showers to run simultaneously.
It is located beside the Galloway Dark Sky Park, near to the Galloway Outdoors Activity Centre and accessible to the Loch Ken Marshes nature reserve. It is suitable for hikers, bikers, wildlife watchers, water sport enthusiasts or anglers. Nearby Dalry, through which the Southern Upland Way passes, has pubs, serving excellent food, a licensed post office/grocers and there are also hotels and, even closer, The Ken Bridge Hotel, is renowned for food with its splendid carvery and restaurant. There is a golf course and art gallery/café less than 2 miles away in New Galloway.
Of interest, the River Ken is part of the Galloway hydro-electric power scheme, built in the 1930 and is still fully operational.
