Living Areas & Kitchen

Southfield has a lovely well-equipped kitchen that was completely refurbished in 2019. Hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher - all your usual mod-cons are there. There's space around the table to seat 8 and there's direct access to the Courtyard.

There are two sitting rooms at Southfield, both equipped with flat screen tvs so there's no arguing over who wants to watch what! The ground floor sitting room also has a log burner - wood can be pre-ordered. On the first floor you overlook the Courtyard and walled garden and in summer it is a great vantage point to watch the swallows swooping!


Master Bedroom - King-size bed in spacious first floor room with additional sofa.

Double Bedroom - En-suite double bedroom on the ground floor, refurbished in March 22.

Triple Bedroom  - Three twin beds on first floor next to the master bedroom.


Upstairs there is a newly renovated family bathroom with extra large shower head over bath. Downstairs there is an ensuite shower off the double bedroom.

Private Garden spaces

The enclosed walled garden is in three parts - the Courtyard paved with sandstone slabs, the grassed middle Circular garden with a picnic table and plenty of space for picnic blankets and through the archway a play area for children and the Old Orchard. We've retired the old 'tree house' but installed a new swing/climbing set in 2021.

We are located in the centre of Wigtown and there is a small pub next door to the house. Occasionally there is a bit of a knees up and there is some noise on the street as a result.  We know this is not for everyone so we want to tell you now so you know it is a possibility.
