About this property
Situated in a peaceful location, with stunning open countryside views, this detached holiday property is located on Barwhillanty Estate and makes an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Barwhillanty, which has been family run since 1884, is a 5000-acre estate set in the beautiful Galloway Hills of Kirkcudbrightshire in south west Scotland. This 19th-century farmhouse has been renovated to an excellent standard with over 18 miles of picturesque walks on the estate (route maps are provided), and trout fishing is available on request. The surrounding area offers a tremendous amount to occupy guests including golf, sailing, horse riding and cycling (both road and mountain bikes as this is the famous 7Stanes country!), along with many other adventurous activities. For those with young children, there are many great days out on the doorstep. If arts and culture are a passion, a quick glance at the surroundings will see exactly why the region has inspired so many artists, writers and craftsmen, from the artists’ town of Kirkcudbright, to the region’s infamous Spring Fling festival, amongst many other events that take place all year round. The food town of Castle Douglas is 7 miles away with everything that could be needed, plus a little more! Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
