Otter View Ref: 30163


Otter View is beautifully placed to enjoy this wonderful scenic area known as the 3 Lochs, made up of Loch Ronald, Loch Heron and the Black Loch, all within an easy stroll of this cosy and well appointed detached holiday lodge. Otter Lodge is situated on Three Lochs Holiday Park which has many facilities available including a heated indoor swimming pool, 9-hole pitch and putt golf course and a tennis court, as well as activities such as fishing, archery, mountain biking and horse riding (all facilities and activities need to be booked directly with the holiday park). The nearby Galloway Forest Park is the UK’s largest at three hundred square miles and is a heady mixture of lochs, moorland, hills and a habitat for a variety of plants and animals. A great introduction to the forest park is to drive along the Queen’s Way. This is a very scenic drive linking Newton Stewart with Scotland’s smallest Burgh, New Galloway. The road holds lovely surprises as it winds its way through magnificent scenery. Wild goats thrive on the rocky outcrops and the red deer range, allowing an opportunity to see these elusive animals up close. The Forest Park has been designated a Dark Sky Park, and offers outstanding opportunities for star gazing and serious pursuit of astronomy, away from light pollution. Several of the 7 Stanes mountain biking trails are easily accessible from the lodge, at Kirroughtree, and Glentrool, where bikes can be hired from the holiday park, if you do not wish to bring your own. The Galloway and Ayrshire coasts are very accessible with the most magical seascapes looking towards Arran and Ailsa Craig. This area remains relatively unmarked by time. The roads are fringed with hedgerows, the beautiful beaches are surprisingly devoid of people and the Galloway Hills are every bit as challenging as some of their loftier neighbours in the north. There are outstanding gardens open to visit at Castle Kennedy, Logan Botanical Garden, and Glenwhan. Beach 9 miles. Shop and restaurant on site, pub 6 miles.

3 steps up to entrance. All on ground floor: Living room with French doors/dining area/kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin (2ft 6in, for children). Shower room with toilet.

Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freesat TV. DVD and small library. Gas hob. Electric oven. Microwave. Shared laundry room. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Enclosed decked area and furniture. Shared lawned area. Parking (2 cars). Shared heated swimming pool (booked directly with holiday park) with shower and changing facilities. Shared tennis court. Books and games. Welcome pack. Pets free of charge. No smoking. No children under 8 years. NB: 3 steps to shared lawn. 3 lochs in grounds, 165 yards.

Cree House Ref: SAZ

"Shimmering lakes, wooded walks and views to Lakeland across the Firth . . . superb cottages in a spectacular setting . . .’’

In three acres of glorious garden grounds, surrounded by lakes of water lilies, splendid trees, flowering shrubs and woodland drives, the splendid cottages at Kinmount Castle are only a few miles from the sandy shoreline, which sweeps westwards to yachting harbours and bird reserves. This meticulous, architect-designed conversion has transformed the Victorian servants’ wing of magnificent Kinmount House into a delightful courtyard cluster of eight holiday cottages, seven of which we feature here, which retain a wealth of original features and details, and possess tremendous atmosphere and charm, which makes it an ideal marquee wedding venue with ballroom included. They enjoy shared use of outstanding facilities, including a superb indoor heated swimming pool, which has been sensitively incorporated into one side of the courtyard. Open daily all year round, the pool has full changing facilities, and its building also houses a sauna, sunbed, cardio gym and games room with pool table. The cottages themselves have been luxuriously appointed; the master bedrooms have four-poster beds, the kitchens are lavishly equipped and the utmost care has been taken over the choice of fabrics and furnishings. Alongside the gracious main house, they are set around the attractive courtyard with patio and barbecue areas – and an extensive grassed area offers plenty of space to relax, as well as an equipped play space for children. From the cottages, there is immediate access to the grounds where azaleas and rhododendrons are a pageant of colour in the summer. With lakes in front of the house, it is a fitting setting for properties of the finest quality, which boast views over shimmering waters to the Lakeland Hills across the Solway Firth.
Kinmount Castle has access to exclusive salmon beats on the Rivers Annan and Nith including the famous Barjarg beat that boasts a salmon catch of 67 lb, in 1812, by well-known poacher, Jock Wallace, and confirmed by the Earl of the home. More up to date catches are now giving an average of 59 salmon and 160 sea trout in a a season along this two mile beat. One to one fishing tuition can also be arranged for novices. Prices at cost – dependant on the time of year.
Just 2 miles from the cottages is Powfoot, created in the 1790s as a sea-bathing resort by one of the owners of Kinmount House. Set above a beach, it has an excellent golf course, one of several along this coast. About a mile further on, the river at the redstone town of Annan is famous for its salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing, and there are pleasant walks along both banks. The town boasts a choice of restaurants and pubs, as well as a sports centre. At Ecclefechan (6 miles) Thomas Carlyle’s birthplace is to be found, containing a collection of relics and letters. Rammerscales (8 miles) is a Georgian house linked with Flora MacDonald. Along the coast at Caerlaverock (8 miles), 13,000 acres of salt-marsh and foreshore have been designated a National Nature Reserve; barnacle, pink-footed and greylag geese feeding on the saltings in Autumn and Winter make this one of the most notable bird sanctuaries in Britain. Overlooking the reserve from a wooded mound are the striking red sandstone ruins of Caerlaverock Castle, dating from the 13th century and besieged many times during the Border wars.
In the parish church at Ruthwell, the Ruthwell cross is a most impressive example of 7th-century stone carving, inscribed with verses from The Dream of the Rood. Dumfries (13 miles) is renowned for its Burns museum, and has a fine golf course. Further west are quaint fishing villages and the rugged beauty of the Galloway Hills. The area offers opportunities for sailing, water sports and riding, and the nearby towns offer good shopping and a variety of inns and eating places. Shops 3 miles.

Spacious sitting room with gas ‘coal-effect’ fire. Open-plan kitchen/dining room. Utility room off kitchen. Cloakroom with toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft pine four-poster bed and en-suite shower room with toilet. Two twin bedrooms. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.
