Luxury Cottage with a wood burning stove

A luxury holiday house for 8 by the sea in Dumfries and Galloway with a log burning stove. A traditional Galloway farmhouse entirely surrounded by lush green fields, this wonderful 4-star holiday house is remarkably spacious. With far-reaching rolling country views, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of rural living at High Clachan Farmhouse.

With a log burner, which gives out a glorious heat, free-standing roll top baths, and a sunny conservatory, this luxury holiday house for 8 guests has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.


Entering the house on the left, there is a large sitting room, with a cosy log burning stove, furnished with a corner sofa, various armchairs and a smart television with DVD player. The spacious dining kitchen has a large dining table with charming, restored church pews as seating. Leading off the kitchen is a large south-facing conservatory with beautiful rural views of the rolling Wigtownshire countryside. With armchairs, an additional dining table and chairs, guests can either choose to eat here, relax and take in the view, or play board games.

There is a large master bedroom with a king size bed on the ground floor with pretty rural views to the south and north and an en suite bathroom with a bath and a separate shower. Next door is a further bedroom with full-size bunkbeds, which are ideal if you want the children close by. Upstairs, there are two generous bedrooms, which have zip and link beds so can either be made up as twin or double (super king) beds. Full of character, these bedrooms each have the original fireplaces. Both bedrooms have large en suite bathrooms with Victorian style free standing baths for a touch of added luxury, in addition to separate showers. There is also an additional house bathroom upstairs with a bath and overhead shower.

Located on Corsewall Estate, a magical country estate in Dumfries and Galloway, High Clachan Farmhouse is in the countryside about a mile to the north of the village of Kirkcolm, seven miles from Stranraer in south west Scotland.


There are lots of wonderful woodland walks and coastal paths around the 1000-acre estate and down to the sea you can enjoy.

A dedicated path for walkers links the farmhouse to the heart of the estate – it’s a 10-15 minute walk to the other three cottages (1000 metres) and to the village pub in Kirkcolm – the Blue Peter.

The pretty beaches of Lady Bay and Port Beg are a short walk away.


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 of Corsewall House and woods.

Great for kids

We’ve got lots to keep children busy outdoors on the Estate. It is just a 10 to 15 walk to the woods immediately beside the lawns close to Garden Cottage and Stables Cottages which is 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. Additionally, kids can bounce to their heart’s content on the 14-foot trampoline on the edge of the lawns. There’s also a campfire area in the woods – perfect for toasting marshmallows.

Finally, near Stables and Garden Cottage, we have Wendy house for smaller children, with a toy cooker and lots of picnic/cooking paraphernalia and a pretty veranda.


The Estate has a singles tennis court for guests’ use, which is a 10-15 minute walk from High Clachan Farmhouse on one of our woodland paths. Just in case it rains, we have a games room, with table tennis and an air hockey table in the stables opposite Stables Cottage – again a 10-15 minute walk from High Clachan.

Cottage equipment & amemities

The farmhouse is equipped with Wi-Fi (Superfast), a Delonghi bean to cup coffee machine, smart television, a DVD player, a digital Bluetooth Roberts radio, a selection of board games and books. The beds come with super thick, feather-filled duvets and pillows, all linen and large fluffy towels.

The kitchen/utility room has a television, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, gas 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, jam, butter, tea, coffee and fresh flowers from the garden (when in season). You’ll find the cottage is well stocked with the general basics too from washing up liquid and bin bags to washing powder and loo paper.

High Clachan has its own private garden including garden furniture, a barbecue and a croquet set. Cots and highchairs are available on request.
