Orchard Cottage offers spacious, comfortable and environmentally friendly living for a family or friends. Scotland’s book town, Wigtown, is a 10-minute drive and the lovely sandy beaches of Rigg Bay and Garlieston are just 5 minutes drive. En route to Wigtown, there’s the Bladnoch Inn pub offering decent food and selling fishing licences for the Bladnoch River.
Our light, airy cottage is child-friendly with Wendy House and swings for children to play on. Watch the swallows dart into the eaves in the summer or star gaze during the spring and autumn evenings. Being all on one level it offers easy access for those who require it.
Orchard Cottage is located at the foot of our Iron Age Hillfort and from the top you get a stunning view of Wigtown Bay and the Galloway Hills. You can wander down to the Wigtown Bay Nature Reserve from the cottage – the blossom in spring is gorgeous and blackberrying in autumn is great fun. The Kilsture forest is only a minute away by car and there’s a couple of good trails for mountain bikes or walking.
Please note: there is a large wood stove in the kitchen which it is not easy to screen from little fingers so please be aware of this if travelling with mobile toddlers.
