This is your own secluded holiday cottage set 1/2 mile up a track away from the main road and no other houses around. Whilst there is no internet or TV, there is a DvD player and you can get limited mobile access (vodafone and 02).

Keys are in key safe. Once you have confirmed you will see the number. You have the run of the whole cottage and garden (except the caravan and shed which the owner keeps as storage).

Although we don't live close by, we have family in the vicinity who can assist if there are any issues. Just call me on +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if there are any problems.

Dogs - we're happy for 1 or 2 well behaved dogs, but please keep them off the furniture. The garden is not dog proof and there are sheep, cattle and horses in the neighbouring fields so they need to be kept under close control. However there is a nice walk down to the sea (over main road), where dogs can be let off the lead, and there are numerous great walks a short drive away.

Rubbish collection - recycling bins at the bottom of the track (by the main road), are emptied on a Thursday morning. Please put your rubbish there the night before.

Ruined castles, beautiful gardens, mountain biking, sandy beaches, lovely villages are all within a 30 minute drive of the cottage.

Although there is a bus stop 1.5 miles away in Carsluith village, buses are very infrequent and you are advised to bring a car. The cottage is accessed by a rough track 1/2 mile from the main road (A75). It is perfectly accessible by a normal car, but do take care.

Some firewood and coal is supplied, but please use sparingly.
There's also a BBQ you can use (please bring own coal).
Our children (11&9) love playing in the woods using the rope swing, making dens, lighting bonfires and using the zip wire. You are most welcome to do the same at your own risk. Please ensure your children are adequately supervised.
The nearest shops are in Gatehouse (8 miles) or Creetown (3 miles).
There are lots more tips and information in the cottage.

Other things to note
Please note there is no internet or TV (although TV with DvD player is supplied). There are lots of board games, books, some DvD's and some toys in the cottage.
It is accessed up a rough track - perfectly passable by a car; you need to take care and drive slowly, but the views are worth it!

Guests can use the lovely beach at Cardoness Holiday Park for free. This is 3 miles east along A75 towards Gatehouse. Drive into the Holiday park and up to the office in the old stables. Just say you are staying at Cleughead Cottage and they will let you through the barrier and down to the beach. On a warm day the water heats up (marginally!)coming over the sand for high tide. Otherwise lots of rock pooling and sand castle building!
There are lots more tips and information in the cottage.
We ask guests to kindly take their recycling / rubbish to the bin at the bottom of the track at the end of their stay or on Wednesday afternoon for collection by 7.30 on Thursday morning.
