Furnished and equipped to cater for your every need and with a variety of activities within a short drive, including free golf at Colvend Course, less than a mile away, (for guests booking for a week or longer). Winner of Countryfile's 'Holiday Destination of the Year 2016', Dumfries and Galloway has it all and your holiday home is at the heart of it. The 5 bedroomed main house is furnished to the highest standard and equipped with a Sonos Sound System in all rooms. All bedrooms are en-suite with luxurious bed linen and sumptuous towels. In addition we have a self-contained two bedroom apartment with small kitchen adjacent to the main house - ideal as additional family accommodation for larger groups. The property is only available for exclusive use so the grounds and features are yours alone to enjoy during your stay. Ideal for a group of friends or that special family occasion, sharing a meal in the large dining kitchen, watching a film in front of a roaring log fire or enjoying a quiet Sunday morning reading the papers in the Snug, there is something for everyone. The landscaped gardens lead down to the loch where you have your own private boathouse with relaxed seating area and bar, you can fish from the jetty or just simply relax in the hot tub and watch the sun go down. We think the secret to a happy holiday for a large group is to have something for everyone. Within minutes you can go fishing, cycling, golfing, sailing, walking, and so much more. Or simply pull up a chair on the jetty, relax and look out for the swans, cormorants or even an elusive otter. Remember, you have your own Scottish loch at the bottom of your garden! The house and apartment have a maximum occupancy of 14 guests, however, for a smaller group (up to 10) you can rent only the main house if necessary (see listing - F/W Solway Coast) The MAIN HOUSE has oil-fired central heating, Sonos music system in all rooms (download the Sonos Controller app to you smart phone before your visit), and comprises: GROUND FLOOR * Spacious lounge with large comfy sofas set around the wood burning stove; Sky TV with Netflix; patio doors leading to the decking which looks out over the gardens and loch. * Snug with comfy Harris Tweed armchairs and a selection of books and magazines. * Kitchen/dining room with electric oven and hob, large American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, NESPRESSO coffee machine (we will leave a few pods to get you started, but if you have your own favourites, please bring a supply with you) and patio doors to the decking for outside dining. * Utility/boot room with washing machine. * Cloakroom with hand basin and WC. * Three en-suite double bedrooms, two with bathrooms with shower over the bath, hand basin and WC and one with shower room with walk in shower, hand basin and WC.

The property is deceiving from the front looking like a bungalow, but take a peek to the rear to find extensive rear grounds, adjacent side building housing more accommodation and table tennis table. Not to mention the boathouse at the foot of the garden, with...More
