Situated in a peaceful, remote location within the Galloway Forest Park and surrounded by rolling hills, this detached holiday cottage offers a truly relaxing break. Walking and cycling is available directly from the property. Glentrool, one of the 7 Stanes, with its many marked trails is close by and offers walking and cycling for all abilities, and access to the Merrick, South West Scotland’s highest mountain, offers more demanding walking. Dumfries and Galloway with its many sandy beaches, rocky coves and picturesque villages are nearby, and the area provides ample opportunity to relax in the wealth of scenic and historic attractions. With its famously mild climate and the balmy influence of the Gulf Stream, Galloway is home to some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens. Ayrshire with easy access to Culzean Castle and Country Park, a favourite with visitors, is a 30 minute drive away. South West Scotland has a wealth of golf courses. Turnberry, Brunston Castle and Girvan are all within easy reach. The Ayrshire Coast and Burns Country provide enjoyable days out.

Customer Reviews of Craigenrae,Newton Stewart, sleeps 6
1st comment: Fantastic property throughout very spacious and cosy with every thing you need, the remoteness of the cottage makes it a great place to get away from it all, so quiet and peaceful. There were numerous walks available to occupy ourselves and dogs for the entire holiday so you are never bored. Highly recommended cottage and location. March 2012.
2nd comment: Excellent property throughout. Comfortable and clean. If you like the remoteness and the ’alternative’ power supply then this is the place for you. Sept 2010.

9th comment: Fabulous setting very remote and peaceful but fully equipped for all needs. Without a doubt a holiday cottage for a return in the future and also recommendation. Caretakers in attendance when we arrived very friendly and attentive, overall a great asset for Scottish self catering holidays. Feb 2010.
10th comment: The property was large and spacious, enough room for all seven of us! It was clean and tidy. Situated in a beautiful location away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - just what we needed. July 2009.
11th Comment One word needs to be used for both our holiday and the accommodation, "fantastic". On arrival we were met by caretaker/owner who was lovely and very helpful. We stayed here as a group of 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs and still there was plenty of room and comfort. Considering the property is pet friendly it was finished to a high standard. Location was perfect, remote and peaceful with some great surroundings for the long walks. We had with our dogs whom i think are missing the place more than us! Would totally recommend to anyone and to anyone with doubts, book before it’s too late. Dec 2008.
12th Comment t is in the middle of nowhere so is perfect for a weeks get away from it all. The scenery is great and the quietness is lovely. The accommodation has every thing one needs to be cut off. Feb 2009.
13th Comment Excellent accommodation, wonderful surroundings and lots of interesting wildlife to see from the cottage and all this when the weather was poor. Can’t wait to return for a sunnier week! Aug 2008.
