• 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.
    Bathroom: With shower over bath, WC and heated towel rail.

    Enclosed grassed area, wild flower garden, patio, gravelled area and furniture. BBQ area. On road parking. No smoking. NB: 1 step from patio up to gravelled area and one step down to grassed area.

    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.

    Had a great time in a gorgeous cottage which was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable beds. Owners were very welcoming, helpful in giving information for places to go. Village had everything local and people very friendly. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

    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.

    We had the most perfect 4 night stay here over Hogmanay. The cottage is beautiful and spotlessly clean and was so cosy. The back garden was perfect for our dog too. We went for many lovely walks in the area and then came home to curl up in front of the fire - bliss! Neil and Linda were great hosts and we would love to return before long.

    It is deffo worth another visit. There is enough going on in the area for an active holiday for families and if you want peace and quiet you can have both. It is brilliant that it is dog friendly.
