Luxury 3-bedroom self-catering cottage on Corsewall Estate

Luxury self catering cottage by the sea

Forming the west wing of the 18th Century Corsewall House, Garden Cottage has wonderful sea views across Loch Ryan.


With three en suite bedrooms, this 4-star luxury self-catering cottage by the sea comfortably accommodates six guests.

The living area downstairs in this luxury self-catering cottage by the sea is open plan with a stylish kitchen including a Belfast sink and large dining table. The spacious sitting room is south facing and overlooks the extensive Estate gardens, which in spring burst with colour from the Rhododendrons and Azaleas. The sitting room has an electric wood burning style stove. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor with an en suite bathroom. There is also a cloakroom with a shower and a utility room.

A traditional wooden staircase leads upstairs to a twin and a double bedroom with a bathroom and en suite shower respectively.

This is one of two ‘green’ cottages on the Estate with the central heating provided by a wood chip biomass boiler and electricity provided by one of the Estate’s wind turbines.

Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, there are lots of wonderful woodland walks and coastal paths around the 1000-acre estate you can enjoy. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils in March. From April, the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year, starting with Camellia from January and the Magnolias in March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the Rhododendrons and Azaleas come into flower. Indeed, one of our Rhododendrons, known as Christmas Cheer, comes out in mid-December and January. The autumn sees the Hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November.

There is oodles of wildlife to spot – from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. There are numerous dedicated squirrel feeders dotted about the gardens and woods.

Garden Cottage is a 5-10 minute walk to the village pub, the Blue Peter.

Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and the Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From an historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay, was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – you’ll see evidence of this on your walk and also throughout the woods at Corsewall Estate, which was requisitioned by the RAF during the War.

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. There’s a 60-foot zip wire, which has been well tested by children (and some adults) alike! Next door, there’s a climbing frame, which comes complete with a climbing wall, lookout house with binoculars to spot pirates/baddies, a very whizzy slide, three swings, including one for toddlers and a terrific back-to-back glider.

Anyone for tennis? There’s a singles tennis court beside the walled garden – so do bring your racquets and enjoy a game or two. Just in case it rains, we have a games room with table tennis and an air hockey table in the stables just behind Garden Cottage.

Additionally, kids can bounce to their heart’s content on the 14-foot trampoline on the edge of the lawns. Also, there’s a campfire area in the woods – perfect for toasting marshmallows. Finally, for smaller children, we have Wendy house with a toy cooker and lots of picnic/cooking paraphernalia and a pretty veranda.

The cottage is equipped with a Delonghi bean to cup coffee machine, smart television, DVD player, a Roberts digital radio and a Bluetooth speaker, Wi-Fi, a selection of board games and books. The beds come with super thick, feather-filled duvets, all bed linen and large fluffy towels. It also has a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, hob and electric double oven.

We provide a welcome pack for guests on arrival including a jar of our incredibly edible, home-made Corsewall brownies, local milk, bread, jam, butter, tea, coffee and fresh flowers from the garden (when in season). You’ll find the cottage well equipped with the general basics too from washing up liquid and bin bags to washing powder and loo paper.

Garden Cottage has its own garden area including garden furniture, a croquet set and a barbecue. A cot and highchair are available on request.
