Holiday Cottage by the sea in Dumfries and Galloway

Located in the heart of Corsewall Estate, Stables holiday cottage by the sea in Dumfries and Galloway is surrounded by woodland bursting with birdsong in spring and summer. It overlooks an old walled kitchen garden.  The garden inhabitants include two small ponies, some chickens and at last count, and most magical of all, a couple of hares. This small, but perfectly formed, 4-star retreat for four is an ideal location for couples or families to get together by the sea and explore south west Scotland.


This first floor cosy holiday cottage by the sea in Dumfries and Gallloway has a large open plan sitting room, kitchen with dining area and a toasty log burner, which gives out a great heat. There is a double bedroom with a king size bed and pretty views over the walled garden and the woodland. A twin bedroom and a bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. The cottage has its own private garden with garden furniture and a barbecue.

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

Just to note that there are 16 steep steps up to the cottage front door.

Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland close to Corsewall House, there are lots of wonderful woodland walks and coastal paths around the 1000-acre estate and down to the sea you can enjoy. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils in March. In April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with Camellias during January and Magnolias in March, followed with a riot of colour in April and May from the Rhododendrons and Azaleas. Indeed, one Rhododendron, known as ‘Christmas Cheer’, flowers in December and January. The autumn sees the Hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November.

There is oodles of wildlife to spot around the cottage 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.

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

Walk down to the shores of Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and the Scar. This is 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 on the Estate. The woods immediately beside the lawns close to Garden Cottage and Stables Cottages are a dedicated children’s fun zone. There is 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, for smaller children, we have a Wendy house with a toy cooker and lots of picnic/cooking paraphernalia and a pretty veranda.

Anyone for tennis? The Estate has a singles tennis court for guests’ use and just in case it rains, we have a games room with table tennis and an air hockey table in the stables opposite the cottage.

The cottage is equipped with a Delonghi bean to cup coffee machine, a smart television, DVD player, a Roberts Bluetooth digital radio, 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 oven.

We provide a welcome pack for guests on arrival including a jar of 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, bin bags to washing powder and loo paper.

Stables Cottage has its own private garden including garden furniture and a barbecue. A cot and highchair are available on request.
