- englanti, ranska
A well kept secret. Will keep coming back
Stayed last year for the first time. The stables is a lovely comfortable bolt hole, ideal for quite cosy breaks and exploring the countryside. A very special feature is the surrounding gardens where you are free to roam and take in the scenery and wildlife. Go out around 7.30pm and watch the bats!! Thanks to Kate and Angus for another wonderful holiday. We shall be back!
It was lovely to welcome you both back to Stables Cottage - we're so pleased you had another relaxing stay there and we do hope to see you again this year. Many thanks indeed for taking the time to leave us a glowing review!
Beautiful and cosy cottage
Our family loved to stay there and we truly recommand it! Nice landlords, beautiful surroundings, well-equipped cottage - everything you need for relaxing vacaction!
We really enjoyed having you to stay and we're so pleased you came all the way from Germany to explore south west Scotland. Thank you very much for choosing our cottage and for taking the time to post a review.
Photos do not do it justice
The property was a beautifully and sympathetically converted barn, and everything described was spot on. The setting was on a working estate, it did not feel like a holiday setting, at times felt a little like you were intruding (maybe that's our stuff!). Everyone was really friendly and everything on the estate was available for you to explore which was great. The only reason I cannot give a five star rating is that for us, the cottage garden was not private enough and with the weather being so unusually gorgeous, felt there was no privacy to sunbathe. We would probably have enjoyed a winter break more as you could imagine how cosy and peaceful it would be. Everything else was perfect, and we felt privileged to have stayed. The location is perfectly based for exploring this area of Scotland.
Many thanks indeed for your review and for choosing Stables Cottage. We’re so pleased you had a wonderful week and the weather was amazing. We’re already on the case with regard to the garden - the new beech hedge which we planted in the spring will soon grow up and will offer guests much more privacy for relaxing, eating and sunbathing!
Great value for money
Very disappointed we had to leave early to resolve work issues. What a beautiful area. If you want nice food & drink u need to venture a bit further into Port Patrick & Stranraer. Walks were amazing with our dogs. They loved it. My 10 year old was like a pup. Met the owner who had passed everything of to his son. Lots of interesting stories about the place. It was a pleasure to meet him. Lovely cottage. Hate saying this but it has to be said. We paid too little for what we got. Out of season yes, even so the prices are really below where the place is worth. There were two of us & the dogs & we thought very good value for money. It sleeps four and we thought cheap for two. They do a few extras too. Jam, butter, bread etc. Strongly recommend
Many thanks indeed choosing Stables Cottage and for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review. We're so pleased you enjoyed staying at Stables Cottage all that it and the estate has to offer and the dogs enjoyed the walks! I do hope you'll be able to return soon for an uninterrupted break.
A beautifully appointed cottage
This idyllic cottage is toasty warm and very welcoming, the bed is super comfy and the pillows just right. The situation is perfect for those wishing to have an away from it all break in surroundings which are tranquil. Wonderful walks over the Estate down to Loch Ryan and also coastal path walks near by.
Attention to detail is obvious as is the care taken to help preserve the environment.
This is a cottage which will be on our list of places to revisit.
Don't just take my word for it though put this one in your favourites and visit.
Many thanks indeed for taking the time to leave us a review for Stables Cottage and for your very kind words. We're so pleased you both and Rafferty the dog enjoyed getting away from it all and the pretty walks down to the sea and coastal pathways. We do hope to welcome you back again in the not too distant future.
Fantastic grounds , cosy cottage with all amenities , very friendly hosts
This is a well kept secret. The stables cottage is very cosy, clean and well appointed . The surrounding grounds are fantastic to wander around with deer, red squirrels , bats all to be spotted . The owners Kate and Angus are very friendly and helpful, free fuel for the log burner and helpful advice on where to go and eat in the surrounding area . We would highly reccomend a stay here.
Glenn and Tracey Bulley
Thank you so much Glenn and Tracey for your very kind words. We really enjoyed having you to stay in Stables Cottage and we're so pleased you enjoyed seeing all the wildlife around the estate and keeping the log burning stove well stoked with all the free logs! We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future hopefully.
Tämä hiljattain kunnostettu mökki on ihanteellinen tukikohta Gallowayn tutustumiselle Dumfriesin ja Gallowayn North Rhinsin Corsewall Estatein sydämessä, kauniin metsän ympäröimänä ja näkymät laajaan aidattuun keittiöpuutarhaan.
Kävele Loch Ryanin rannoille ja Wig Bayn ja Scarin ympärille - pyöreä kävelee pitkin Loch Ryanin rantaviivaa ja takaisin Kirkcolmin kylään. Scar, hiekkakivi, joka lähtee Loch Ryanin alueelle, asuu alueella suurimpia pesänmuotoisia siirtokuntia. Historian näkökulmasta toisen maailmansodan aikana peruukiveliä käytettiin pohjaksi lentäville Catalina-veneille - näet todisteita tästä kävellesi ja myös koko metsässä Corsewall Estateissa, jota kanadalainen Ilmavoimat sodan aikana.
Stables Cottage sijaitsee ihanteellisella paikalla tutkia Wigtownshire ja Galloway. Tutustu monien hiekkarantojen tai kävellä Galloway Forest Park - joka on kilometriä erinomaisia kappaleita nauttia jalka tai maastopyörä. Se on myös UK: n ensimmäisen Dark Skies Parkin otsikko. Jos maastopyöräily on missä se on sinulle, voit kokeilla 7Stanes - seitsemää mahtavaa ja monipuolista maastopyöräilykeskusta Dumfries & Gallowayn yli.
Gallowayssä on paljon aktiviteetteja lapsille, jotka sateet tai loistavat. Head for Cream O 'Galloway - Gatehouse of Fleetin jäätelötehdas ja lapset voivat nauttia ulkona seikkailukeskuksesta tai Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory Twynholmasta, jossa he voivat todella juuttua suklaaseen jossakin lasten kädestä työpajoissa .
Harrastaville golfareille Corsewallissa sijaitsevissa Stables Cottageissa on haastavia ja kauniita golfkenttiä lähellä - kuten Portpatrickin Dunskey Golf Club ja suuri James Braidin suunnitteleman Stranraer Golf Club. Vain tunnin ajomatkan päässä on Turnberryn mestaruuskurssi ja hieman pitempi pohjoinen on Royal Troon.
On olemassa lukuisia kauniita puutarhoja - Loganin kasvitieteellisestä puutarhasta ja Ardwellista Dunskeyyn ja Glenwhanista Kennedyin linnaan, jossa näkyy eksoottisia kasveja runsaasti ja väristyksiä.
Gallowayn Mull, jossa työskentelevällä majakalla, jota voit käydä ja nousta oikealle valotornin yläosaan, on nähtävä. Se on Skotlannin eteläisempi kohta ja selkeinä päivinä voit nähdä Englannin, Irlannin ja Mansaaren.
