This former gamekeeper's cottage, built in 1896, lies up a peaceful glen in the Galloway hills. Here you are away from traffic noise and street lights, and on a clear night you can really see the stars.
The garden is a haven for birdlife and red squirrels visit here too. But only a short distance away are the many attractions of the area, with something to offer for all ages.
The tastefully modernised cottage has been refurbished to retain its original character and features, making it a comfortable family holiday home. It is approached from the Skyreburn road up a short track, through the field beside the cottage to a large fenced car parking area. The small Paradise burn is at the rear of the cottage, through a gate with a secure latch.
The beautiful Solway coast is just under three miles away, with superb beaches for bathing and watersports, and there are many golf courses to be enjoyed. Hill walking is on the doorstep and there are many hill lochs for fishing. Mountain biking is in the Galloway Forest park, while close at hand, Laggan Outdoor has one of the longest zipwires in Europe, and Cream of Galloway, makers of delicious ice cream, have an adventure playground for all ages among its many activities. Nearby Creetown, reached further up the Skyreburn road has the Gem Rock Museum.
The local towns of Gatehouse of Fleet, 4 miles away, Kirkcudbright, the "artists' town", and Castle Douglas have excellent pubs and cafes, and are known for their antique and individual food shops and galleries. There are also many interesting gardens and historic properties to visit.
Good home cooking can be collected from The Scottish Pantry Catering, King Street, Castle Douglas. Both Tesco and Majestic Wines deliver to Rowantree.
