• About River Cottage

    A super family property opposite the River Bladnoch in a rural location , ideal for touring the Dumfries and Galloway coast, forests and countryside.

    Ground Floor:
    The property is all on ground floor, has electric central heating and comprises:
    Lounge/kitchen: With wood burner, 32" Freeview TV, electric cooker, fridge, freezer and washing machine.
    Bedroom 1: With double bed and TV.
    Bedroom 2: With twin beds and TV.

    River Cottage is a typical Galloway terraced cottage and stands across from the lovely River Bladnoch, with a children’s play area 110 yards away. It offers a cosy interior and a lovely enclosed garden with views over open farmland beyond. Whilst retaining the outward appearance of a Galloway cottage, the interior has been completely updated making it a comfortable holiday retreat. A lovely wood burning stove in the lounge is particularly attractive. The garden is a delight for both dogs and children being completely enclosed and there are facilities to wash bikes outside. Set in a quiet location in a row of houses, the cottage is a short stroll from the country pub and restaurant, and within a few minutes’ drive of Wigtown, the Book Town, and close to Newton Stewart where there are many excellent shops and places to eat. With the Galloway Forest and Dark Skies Park close by, the cottage is ideally placed to explore the beauty of south west Scotland. Perfect for walkers, golfers and cyclists, with Glentrool, Kirroughtree and the 7Stanes mountain bike trails nearby, as well as a great choice of golf courses. There is an abundance of fishing, bird watching, beautiful and exotic gardens, many rocky coves, sandy beaches and quaint villages to explore along the Machars Peninsula.

    Our second visit - the cottage is lovely, absolutely spotless and extremely well equipped. The area is beautiful and we have travelled to most of the picturesque spots, though we spend most of our time at the Wigtown Book Festival. Would highly recommend the cottage and the area. We would be back next year, but the cottage is already booked for this week - a reflection of how good it is.

    The cottage was very comfortable and very well equiped. The welcome treats were very welcome. Our dog enjoyed the long garden apart from being wary about walking on the gravel - which he does not enjoy. We needed the long garden to obtain a good mobile signal but the Wi-Fi worked well. Having a good dog friendly pub less than 200m away was useful

    Beautiful cottage and garden which is well-equipped, cosy and comfortable. Made to feel very welcome by lovely owners and much appreciated the kind welcome treats and flowers. Location is an ideal base for exploring the area. Highlights of our trip included: Gatehouse of Fleet; Mull of Galloway; Crafty Distillery; Laggan Outdoor Centre. Local Wigtown (1m) has a good Co-op and can recommend a nice meal in the Craft Hotel. Great Chinese takeaway (Dynasty) at Newton Stewart (6m). Despite some unlucky weather, we had a lovely week and hope to return in the future. Highly recommend.

    The cottage was every bit as nice on the pictures, all done out to a high standard. Owners were very welcoming and the dog settled very quickly. The only little thing was on a Saturday night there was some noise late at night as the pub down the road shut, I dare say if the dog hadn't barked I would have never of noticed the noise, it was over and done with very quickly as people made their way home (and it was 6 nations rugby Scotland playing). This did not ruin the break, we loved every second, location amazing with walks in the forest and half an hour later we were on the beach, great.

    We had a very enjoyable week in River Cottage. Beautiful unspoilt area, quiet roads for cycling and the cottage was a cosy and welcoming retreat from the world. Just what we needed.
