Estate Activities

We’ve got lots to keep children busy outdoors on the estate. The woods immediately beside the lawns close to Garden Cottage and Stables Cottages are a dedicated children’s fun zone.

For Children

Dumfries & Galloway is bursting with sights to see and activities to get your teeth into during your stay in our self catering accommodation. Here are a few suggestions to whet your appetite.

Golf Courses

Come and stay in one of our luxurious holiday cottages, which are ideal as a base to explore all the many magnificent golf courses in the nearby vicinity. See our map and links for their locations.

Mountain Biking

Get to grips with the great outdoors during your stay. The 7Stanes is a series of seven amazing and varied mountain biking centres located across Wigtownshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Dumfriesshire and the Borders in the east.


Wigtownshire and the Rhins of Galloway are endowed with numerous and spectacular beaches, and during your stay here at Corsewall, you won’t have to get up early to book your place on the golden sands.


We have a huge range of walks to enjoy while staying in one of our cottages – from the spectacular garden and woodland walks at the gardens of Dunskey and Castle Kennedy to those along the coast and upland ones in the Galloway hills.


There are many beautiful gardens in the immediate area, including Castle Kennedy, Dunskey, Glenwhan, Ardwell Gardens and Logan House – all with their very varied landscapes and plant species.

Bird Watching

The area around Corsewall Estate is a haven for bird watchers and a self catering stay in one of our cottages is the ideal base for daily birding trips. We’ve highlighted some of the more notable local viewing points in the links and on our map.


There are various events and festivals throughout the year for you to visit, all within easy driving distance our holiday cottages. See the blog for news of upcoming events. For instance every May, the annual Wild Spring Festival.

Where to Eat

All of our self catering cottages come with fully equipped kitchens, but we know that everyone deserves at least one night off, especially on their holidays. Please feel free to ask us about any of the local establishments.

Places To Visit

There are many pretty towns and villages to see and places to visit in Dumfries and Galloway. Nearby is the historic harbour village of Portpatrick with a pretty harbour as its focal point and a number of good pubs, restaurants and cafes.


We’d like you to have the opportunity to hit the ground running and have one or two activities arranged in advance of your arrival. We’ve put together a list of a number of local outdoor experts from birdwatchers and rangers.
