Luxury Holiday Cottages near the Sea in Dumfries and Galloway available for Christmas

Now we know the Grinch quite hasn’t stolen Christmas this year, it’s all systems go!  And it’s all about spending time with family and friends in the great outdoors and going for lots of walks.  And that’s where Corsewall Estate comes in!

Cosy Boltholes for Christmas and New Year

If you are looking for a get-away-from-it-all, cosy bolthole in south-west Scotland for Christmas or New Year look no further. We have two 4-star holiday cottages all within walking distance of the sea available for a socially distanced Christmas stay – High Clachan Farmhouse (sleeps 8) and Cedar Lodge in Portpatrick (sleeps 8).  For the Hogmanay week, due to a cancellation, we have Stables Cottage (sleeps 4).

Holiday Cottages with Woodland and Coastal Walks

Luxury holiday cottages with woodland walks and coastal paths are us.  Over the past year we have built a network of paths through our extensive woodlands and along our pretty beaches.  Just step outside the front door of any of our cottages and there are miles of paths to explore. There are lots of bracing walks around the estate and down to the sea – perfect if you want to bring your dog or just want to work off the odd indulgence over the festive period!

Choose the Loop, which takes you through the historic Corsewall woods, up to the top of the hill where you can see the beautiful sea views across to Ailsa Craig, Arran and even the Paps of Jura on a clear day.  Or walk along the rugged coastline path from Port Beg to the sandy beach of Lady Bay.  Or follow the pretty path through the woods beside the Corsewall Burn.

Star Gazing in Dumfries and Galloway

And at night-time, sticking with the great outdoors theme, why not take advantage of the dark skies and minimal light pollution in south west Scotland and try star gazing?  We’ll provide a firepit to keep you warm and toasty while outside.
