|Kenmuir Holiday Cottage is a traditional Galloway home in South West Scotland, built in the 1880s and set in its own large private garden. The self-catering cottage has recently been upgraded and modernised, but still retains its rustic charm. A large and comfortable living room has a wood-burning stove supplemented by electric radiators. There is a comfortable sofa-bed, a 40" flat screen TV with Freesat HD, and a BluRay/DVD player. There is a selection of DVDs available for you to watch, together with a collection of books.
There is a large comfortable bedroom with a double bed, and a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed. Both have electric radiators and blackout curtains. There is a bath fitted with an electric shower, and a separate toilet. The well-appointed kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven and hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, and a large fridge/freezer.
The self-catering cottage has a large fenced private garden, mainly grassed over, where it is lovely to sit and unwind in the sun with a glass of wine, or have a BBQ. There are a few fir trees in the garden to provide a wind break, and a large hedge for privacy. From the garden you can see the North Channel with the coast of Ireland in the distance. The cottage is situated on a farm road with little passing traffic, and there is a large secure shed for storing cycles, fishing/walking gear, and outdoor equipment. A small fishing boat can be kept in the garden if required.
Well-behaved pets are welcome, but please keep them under control as there are farm animals about, and please make sure you clean up after your dog. The cottage is most suited for small dogs.
Please note that this is a no-smoking holiday cottage.
Heading south, a 15 minute walk along a coastal footpath through the fields will take you to sandy Ardwell Bay - one of the nicest and quietest beaches in the area. The bay is a beautiful place to relax, swim, fish, picnic or have a BBQ. It can also be accessed by car down a farm track, and this takes approximately 15 minutes from the cottage.
This idyllic countryside is ideal for exploring, walking, rambling, hillwalking, cycling, driving, birdwatching, boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and camping. Best of all it is one of the quietest holiday destinations in Scotland.
