Why Holiday at Southfield House?

Wigtown is the National Book Town for Scotland and has bookshops for all, ideal for a rainy day.  A short walk from the front door is a bird hide for migration watching. Jump in the car and a short drive takes you to Galloway Forest Park with mountain biking trails and hill walking and the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park.

We are located close to several popular attractions including Cream of Galloway, Threave Garden, and opening in 2021 the Dark Space Planetarium.

The property is on the South West Coastal 300 route as well as being close to the Whithorn Way - a 1600-year-old pilgrimage route leading to St Ninian's Cave. We're 5 minutes walk from the local golf course and a 10 minute walk from fishing in the River Bladnoch. Rigg Bay Beach is 15 minutes by car. In short there is plenty to do!
