Ivy Bank Studio is an attached studio room of Ivy Cottage which itself was built in 1795 from local stone. It is situated on a private no through road, located directly in front of the Gem Rock museum and cafe. The location of the studio room in Creetown offers excellent outdoor views across to Cairnsmore Hill and also across to Wigtown Bay. Creetown itself is a welcoming tourist village ideal for those wishing to explore Dumfries & Galloway.
“This was a cosy and warm hidden away space with a fantastic view of the surrounding village and area. Everything we needed was there. Bed was super comfortable and shower airy and spacious-with all the toiletries you could wish for. Had a black folder with great local walks clearly set out with pictures. We went on 2 of them and followed them to the letter. They were very beneficial. Warm and welcoming host.”
Dumfries and Galloway dark skies park is a stunning location to get away from it all. Based on our eco friendly off grid small holding, the yurt is solar powered and has a wood burning stove, shower room and composting toilet. The yurt has a double bed and three singles (all with down duvets) so sleeps 4 x1 or 1x2 and 3x1 we don't charge a cleaning fee, so what you see is what you pay!! The chemical free, DIY hottub is very private and for the exclusive use of our guests.
“My stay at the Yurt was transformative. I arrived in a flurry of confusion cos the sat nav sent me on a merry go round. It is remote , peaceful and very comfortable. I met Brett and spoke to Alison on the phone, great hosts in that they have found a wonderful balance of giving the information needed to get to grips with the burner, chargers, power, pump,toilet, shower, washing up , blah di blah and then trusting that you can manage it. I loved it. Keeping an eye on the fire, getting my wellies on and aff!!! Living in a round space, everything connected. Yes it was a wonderful stay were you drop into another lifestyle and realise how we can tread a gentler step with the earth. Thank you xxx”
The Gardeners Cottage is set within the walled gardens of Corvisel House, built by Rear Admiral John McKerlie in 1829. We have restored the cottage in a vintage, quirky style with Donegal & Harris tweed soft furnishings & floral accents to reflect the glorious garden outside! It's located at the edge of Newton Stewart so very handy for evening strolls to the eateries in town. You can take walks in our small forest from the courtyard & hang out in the walled garden - green fingers are welcomed!!
“Fantastic cottage, great location facing the entrance to Hills and Harbour gin distillery. Easy walking distance to the town. The hosts communication was excellent throughout and you will find the cottage spotless and some really nice touches throughout. Best recommendation is we hope to stay again.”
