The wonderfully cosy Stables Cottage is set within the Corsewell Estate in south west Scotland, with acres of woods, magnificent mature gardens and estate beaches.
Newly renovated, Stables Cottage is warm and welcoming and sleeps up to four guests. It's the perfect place for couples, friends or small families looking to explore this unspoiled area of Scotland.
The spacious open plan living area is the heart of the house, with a snug sitting room containing a comfortable sofa and armchairs and a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty whatever the weather. The kitchen area is smart and modern and there's a good sized dining table. On arrival you'll find a welcome hamper with bread and jam, coffee and other tasty treats such as home baked brownies.
Both bedrooms are also located on the first floor, occupying positions at either end of the building. There's a king sized double room with lovely views over the walled kitchen gardens, plus a twin room with pretty floral furnishings. There's also a family bathroom with overhead shower.
The cottage has its own private outside space, with dining furniture and a barbecue, an ideal spot to grill up a feast on a sunny afternoon as well as a singles tennis court situated in the gardens. Beyond you have the entire grounds of the Corsewell Estate to ramble at your leisure. There are lush gardens, this pocket of Scotland is kept warm by the Gulf Stream, plus woods filled with bluebells, snowdrops and wildlife such as roe deer, hares, barn owls, woodpeckers and red squirrels, as well as acres of coast and sandy shoreline around Loch Ryan.
There's lots for children to enjoy, including the estate's play area with swings, climbing frame, trampoline and a 60-foot zip-wire, which even the adults might be tempted to try out, and a tent which can be pitched in the nearby woods for extra adventures.
The Galloway region is filled with natural beauty and things to do, with the huge Galloway Forest Park at its heart, and the little town of Stranraer and the harbour village of Portpatrick nearby with shops and places to eat.
Short breaks for 3 nights available from £288

A lovely cottage on a beautiful estate. We were welcomed with flowers, a really nice touch. Brownies for us (yum) and biscuits for our dogs. Butter, jam and milk which is always great to have on arrival. Lovely green space outside for our dogs to run around, which they loved. We enjoyed a visit to Douglas Castle Gardens, best walled garden we have ever seen. A trip to Kirkcudbright, lovely little art shops but they do close at 4pm which was a bit early for us. Theave Gardens and a trip to Wigtown is well worth a look around all the book shops. Thank you to Angus and Katie.
