Plenty to do
Walk out the door and climb an Iron Age Hill Fort for a stunning view of the Wigtown Bay Estuary and Galloway Hills. Jump in the car and in five minutes you can explore a sprawling garden walk and Rigg Bay beach in Garlieston. On your bike you can explore all of the Machars Peninsula on quiet roads. Or for the more adventurous, head to Kirroughtree Forest Park near Newton Steward and tackle one of the Seven Stanes mountain biking courses.
Orchard Cottage lends itself to family games with the wood stove roaring away. But exploring Wigtown, Scotland's Book Town is a must for any visitor. There are book shops to keep all readers of all ages happy. Highly recommended is a visit to The Bookshop, immortalised in Shaun Bythell's critically acclaimed The Diary of a Bookseller. Scotland's largest bookshop, it really has a book for everyone.
Come in early spring or later in autumn for fantastic views of the night sky. You can wander up our Hill fort for a quick peak. For more of an adventure, drive the short distance to the UK's only Dark Sky Park in the Galloway Forest.
Inside the house has games and books for younger visitors. Outside there is a playhouse and slide in the courtyard and a swingset in the paddock next to the cottage.
