The Gardeners Cottage is set within the walled gardens of Corvisel House, built by Rear Admiral John McKerlie in 1829. We have restored the cottage in a vintage, quirky style with Donegal & Harris tweed soft furnishings & floral accents to reflect the glorious garden outside! It's located at the edge of Newton Stewart so very handy for evening strolls to the eateries in town. You can take walks in our small forest from the courtyard & hang out in the walled garden - green fingers are welcomed!!
“Fantastic cottage, great location facing the entrance to Hills and Harbour gin distillery. Easy walking distance to the town. The hosts communication was excellent throughout and you will find the cottage spotless and some really nice touches throughout. Best recommendation is we hope to stay again.”
Dumfries and Galloway dark skies park is a stunning location to get away from it all. Based on our eco friendly off grid small holding, the yurt is solar powered and has a wood burning stove, shower room and composting toilet. The yurt has a double bed and three singles (all with down duvets) so sleeps 4 x1 or 1x2 and 3x1 we don't charge a cleaning fee, so what you see is what you pay!! The chemical free, DIY hottub is very private and for the exclusive use of our guests.
“My stay at the Yurt was transformative. I arrived in a flurry of confusion cos the sat nav sent me on a merry go round. It is remote , peaceful and very comfortable. I met Brett and spoke to Alison on the phone, great hosts in that they have found a wonderful balance of giving the information needed to get to grips with the burner, chargers, power, pump,toilet, shower, washing up , blah di blah and then trusting that you can manage it. I loved it. Keeping an eye on the fire, getting my wellies on and aff!!! Living in a round space, everything connected. Yes it was a wonderful stay were you drop into another lifestyle and realise how we can tread a gentler step with the earth. Thank you xxx”
A Digital Detox will be much needed after lock down!!! Escape to our farm situated in a quiet rural location in SW Scotland. Stay off-grid in our beautiful shepherd's hut and re-connect with nature; fresh air, uninterrupted views, wild swimming, and dark skies.
“Peace and quiet, tranquility, warm and snug, comfort, everything you need and it was fun getting creating in the kitchen with the gas burner! A little bit of preparation with the food and beverage you take and won’t need anything else nor have to go anywhere unless you want to! The hut is such a perfect little place we were more than happy to stay put and enjoy all of sarah’s little touches. My favourite was definitely sitting on the rocking chair with stove burning with a glass of red and popping my nose out periodically to feel the cool , crisp fresh air. Hard to beat! We will definitely be back and getting some walking done in the beautiful surroundings ! Sarah has done a tremendous job with the hut. It’s quite perfect.”
