Overview

About the property

Two bedroomed cottage to sleep 4-6

Doon Cottage is a lovely comfortable home. It has an open fire, stripped wood finishes and an enclosed well-tended south facing garden at the front of the cottage. Both the village shop & pub are within 500 yards. Very pleasantly located on the edge of Twynholm village, close to the lovely Solway coastline and bounded by fields with views east to the hills.

Completely renovated and tastefully furnished, in keeping with the style and character of the cottage. We frequently use the cottage ourselves, which means it is very well equipped and has many comfortable touches throughout.

On the Ground floor there is a large open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room and a lounge with double sofa bed. On the First floor we have 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 twin. There is a large secure outhouse attached which is suitable for storing bikes.

All fuel, power & bed linen included. Children are very welcome. High chair provided. Sorry no pets. No smoking. There is parking for 3 cars.

Doon Cottage is 3.5 miles from the historic fishing town of Kirkcudbright which has several coffee shops, restaurants and artists’ galleries. Castle Douglas and Gatehouse of Fleet are 8 and 5 miles away respectively and both offer an alternative range of shops and recreational facilities.

Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our brief few days at this lovely cottage - decorated and furnished very tastefully, and location excellent for getting to the coast at Kirkcudbright (3 miles) and beyond. Spotted the young deer in the field next door, and several red kites circling - what a privilege! Would like to stay longer next time - thanks Steve!

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us had a lovely week staying at Doon Cottage, such a cosy, warm house with everything you need. Comfy beds, good cooking facilities and an open fire - bliss! It was easy to find and a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. We have 2 young children who especially loved Cream o Galloway (you MUST try the ice-cream!) and the Cocoa Bean Factory. Lovely shops in Kircudbright and Castle Douglas, lots of lovely tea rooms, beaches and walks. Great communication from Steve the owner who was very accommodating. Our first time visiting the region but won't be the last! Thanks Steve!

Stylish and very well equipped scottish cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three nights in the cottage with five people. Found it comfortable and very well equipped, even though we did not use much of it as we spent most of the time out. Nice and well maintained garden.

Would definitely recommend it and would come back.
