Holiday Rental House
Sleeps 1 - 2 people (2 well behaved dogs allowed) Postcode - DG2 8PZ. This charming wee renovated barn is set amidst 70 acres of rolling farmland in glorious Galloway, yet lies only 4 miles from the busy country town of Dumfries and twelve miles from the food town of Castle Douglas in an ideal touring base. Steeped in history, blessed with stunning scenery and enjoying world-class mountain biking, golf and other activities. Dumfries and Galloway has something for everyone, with many rocky and sandy beaches to explore, village crafts and museums to visit. Golf, fishing, pony trekking, bird watching, sailing and windsurfing all close by, with Mabie Forest, Ae Forest and Dalbeattie Forest all offering excellent mountain biking and walks for all abilities. Nearby towns offer excellent shopping...Sleeps 1 - 2 people (2 well behaved dogs allowed) Postcode - DG2 8PZ.

This is the fourth time we’ve stayed at Cargen Cottage. It’s a perfect little home to stay in whilst exploring the lovely Dumfries and Galloway scenery. Even though you’re fairly near the A75, it’s lovely and quiet. Would certainly recommend this cottage.

A very comfortable stay. It was bigger than the photos led me to believe. We cook our own meals and there was absolutely everything there we needed. The farm shop a couple of miles down the road was a real bonus.
