Follow the wild woodland paths or seek out the ancient cliff-top trails and hidden at the end youll find this spellbinding folktale. Enveloped within the mythical Scottish landscape of Dumfries and Galloway, the cottage is a legendary place to while your days away. Soak up spectacular coastal views and lush, country scenes before spotting beautiful wildlife darting in-between the trees. With a serene and peaceful atmosphere and a luxurious open-air hot tub, there is no better place to get back in touch with Mother Nature.

Cruggleton Lodge is a restored farmhouse building that is part of the 600 acre Galloway House Estate. Once owned by the Earl of Galloway and dating back to the 18th Century, it now has a charming blend of rustic features with contemporary interiors. Neutral colours adorn the walls and are joined by sloped ceilings, quality oak floors and exposed brickwork.

The main living room is light and airy with comfy seating areas and stylish furnishings. Minimalist white walls feature a set of designer antlers and are joined by a traditional wood-burning stove and fire-wood alcove. Large shuttered windows offer views out over the mesmerising landscape, while an eclectic array of vintage books and games are on hand for your evening entertainment. A delightful sea-view kitchen also has everything you need, including an oil-fired Aga cooker and a country-style finish.

Head up the open staircase to find the two sophisticated bedrooms that have sumptuous mattresses and a calming ambience. The sea-view double has a romantic lit-bateau bed, while the cosy twin has a chic French balcony overlooking the rugged, rural surroundings.

An exclusive wood-fired hot tub is waiting for you in the garden and has captivating sea views that reach far off into the distance. Here, you can watch the waves roll by in complete and utter tranquillity before watching the shadows shift beneath clear starry night vistas.

Beyond the crooked garden gate is nature at its very best; with wild flowers dancing in the breeze and birds swooping out over roaring seas. Winding cliff-top paths can guide you to a secluded private beach, while secret forest trails can lead you to magical wildlife scenes. The characterful towns of Whithorn and Wigtown are also just a short drive away and have an interesting array of old bookshops and historic sights to uncover.
