• Located in peaceful countryside and surrounded by the rolling Galloway Hills, these two adjoining byre holiday conversions provide an ideal base from which to explore this quiet Machars Peninsula with its rugged coastline and sandy beaches. Beautifully converted and furnished, they are set on an organic sheep and beef farm accessed by a well-maintained farm road and provide an ideal place to relax and unwind. On the farm, the owner milks 130 organic dairy cows and make cheese from some of the milk. They also buy in sheep and goats milk to produce a range of Cairnsmore and Millairies cheese which are available to try in the farmshop. Home to some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens, the area benefits from a temperate climate due to the gulf stream, and is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers. With the beautiful Galloway Forest Park and seven stanes close by, this is a popular area for walkers and cyclists of all abilities. Sea, river and loch fishing available in the surrounding area with sailing, watersports and golf in abundance. Wigtown, Scotland’s national book town and Whithorn’s historic dig and priory all nearby, while Newton Stewart has a good range of shops, pubs, eateries, cinema and swimming pool. There are also good tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course. Shop 1 mile, pub 3 miles.

I liked cottage and the area was quite nice, and certainly peaceful. The track up to the cottage, was very bumpy, which got worse, as we did have quite a lot of rain. Overall I would say the cottage was quite comfortable, with a couple of provisos. It was difficult to work the cooker, none of the lights worked on the hob, so did not know which one was switched on. The oven markers had also worn off, so were not sure what was on there either, to the extent that in the end after burning things a couple of times, we stopped using it. It could do with a bit of an update. The bed and pillows were old and uncomfortable, and the shower needs to be updated, it also leaks. I met the owners who were really nice people, perhaps they just do not realise these things need to be done.

There is so much to do that we couldn't do a fraction of it in a week, so we will certainly visit the area again. The Galloway hills offer plenty of hill walking while the coast walks are gentler but with spectacular views. There are many splendid gardens to visit and several castles and tower houses. Due to the seclusion of the cottage, nearby facilities are limited but there are shops in Newton Stewart and several cafes, pubs etc within driving distance.

Great location for cycling to Wigtown and various standing stones and the like that are nearby. It’s a lovely area with plenty to do if you like the outdoors, mountains and coastline to explore. And you have all the bookshops in Wigtown to visit too.

Great accommodation, an excellent centre for exploring "The Machars". Quiet is well named, though on one night we were entertained by cattle being hearded, silently, past the Cottage.
