Family-friendly holiday home in Castle Douglas with hot tub
A south facing house with fantastic views across the Galloway country side. The large windows in the living area allow the sun to flood in summer and winter. The living area is open to the apex of the roof adding to the sense of space. A wood burning stove , and underfloor heating powered by an Air source heat pump mean that you will be cosy even on the coldest nights. There is a private patio with a large hot tub, ideal for relaxing and gazing at the stars. Challenge friends and family to a game of table tennis or pool in our adjacent games room. A large lawn will tire out the most energetic youngster. There is a paddock next to the garden where our friendly Shetland ponies Dragon Fly and Bumble Bee hang out, always on the lookout for a carrot ! Threave Gardens, Castle and estate walks are close by. The area has quiet roads to cycle on and hills to ramble on. We are well situated for visiting the main tourist places in Dumfries and Galloway. The market town of Castle Douglas is a 10 minute drive away and the artists town of Kircudbright (new Art Gallery opening early 2018) a 15 minute drive away. You'll be surprised how much the area has to offer.

Lovely place
We had the most pleasant stay at this beautiful place, the most peaceful area and we will definitely be back. We actually tried to book our next stay here while we were still at the property but it’s fully booked. Will keep an eye out for any cancellation. We can’t wait for our next vacation at the long house. Regards Sumaya

Long weekend
We had a great family gathering. The house had all the amenities that are required for a stay with kids including washing machine and tumble dryer . The play shed, lovely green lawn and of course the hot tub were a hit. The house is located in a beautiful country side and everyone loved everything about the place. Perfect relaxing break for city dwellers.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous accommodation for a family get away
We had a fabulous family break here and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone. In a beautiful setting only a few miles from town where you will find everything you need from supermarket, swing parks and lovely bakeries and local shops. Hot tub and games room were a big attraction for us, and they didn’t disappoint. Tommy lives close by and was very helpful with any questions we had. Thanks for a great stay and I am sure we will be back.
