Cairnsmore Stable Cottage, Newton Stewart

Wigtownshire. Sleeps up to 4

Cairnsmore Stable Cottage is over 200-years old and a B listed building that was part of the stable block for the private Cairnsmore Estate, seat of the Stewart family and once the shooting estate of the Dukes of Bedford. As soon as you drive through the gates, along the avenue bordered by rhododendron and broad-leaf trees, the surroundings evoke a by-gone time.

The cottage’s fabulous and peaceful location creates an ideal base for relaxing and exploring this quiet corner of Scotland. There is wonderful walking in the surrounding area (highlighted in the Newton Stewart Walkfest) and the footpath to the summit of Cairnsmore of Fleet (2,300 feet) is a short walk from the cottage. The enclosed garden is south facing and a wonderful suntrap where red squirrels, nuthatch and greater spotted woodpeckers are frequent visitors. The area offers varied interests, both for the outdoor & wildlife enthusiasts and those who enjoy exploring the surrounding market towns and coastal villages.

The cottage was refurbished at the beginning of 2010 with several measures to improve guest’s comfort, the most important being the Geothermal under floor central heating system. Other improvements include a new bathroom (luxury double ended bath with overhead shower), a wood-burning stove in the living room and flagstone flooring throughout  the main living areas, all creating a cosy cottage atmosphere.
