Home in Auchencairn
The Tower lodge is a distinctive Victorian gate house, situated just off a quiet rural road beside the sea at the driveway entrance to Auchencairn House. The property is constructed over four storeys, each accessed by a steep wooden spiral staircase (NB: the kitchen being on the ground floor and the bathroom on the fourth floor). The house has many lovely and original features which we believe make it a unique place to stay. The kitchen is cosy and comfortably sits four people round a pine table, and on summer mornings the door opens out into the courtyard garden so that the sun can stream in and the proximity of the sea and its sounds, provides that extraordinarily relaxing feeling tinged with excitement, which only the sea can bring. The garden is also pet proof, so your dog can wander in and out quite safely. The wood burner in the sitting room makes a perfect focal point for putting your feet up to warm and reliving the days activities. The main bedroom has a view which is second to none out across the Solway Firth, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of a king size four poster bed. The opportunities for foraging and eating incredible locally grown food abound, and if you would like to either pick and choose your own vegetables and fruit, or would like a veg basket to be left in the tower for your arrival, please do just let us know. The fruit and vegetables are all grown in the walled garden, which is looked after by Sue Gilroy, and boasts a huge range of produce. Should you decide to come up and have a look around the walled garden, you will probably come across some friendly chickens who scratch around the stable yard and the lawn, and whose eggs are also available should you like some. As regards foraging from the sea, please let us know if you would like to do some sea fishing as there are local guides with excellent knowledge who would be willing to take you. There is also fishing on local Loch's and rivers if you would prefer. The Tower is the perfect starting point for all the lovely walks that the area has to offer, and while many of these are hills (Screel, Bengairn) or the Cliffs (The Heughs) or woodlands, (Dalbeattie Forest, Galloway Forest Park, The Doach Wood) if you would like to venture across the bay and explore the beaches which you can see on the other side (Red Haven), then please do contact us to ask for tide times and what the best route would be. For cyclists, there are numerous mountain bike trails in the area, but also, for those who prefer a less extreme experience, there are lovely quiet roads throughout the area which take you through beautiful countryside.

Cottage in Auchencairn
Bridgend Cottage & Bothy, Castle Douglas,Galloway
Sometimes the Cottage and the Bothy are available to rent together. If you would like to do this then please get in touch to ask about availability. Renting the two together gives you four separate bedrooms - three in the cottage and a mezzanine bed platform in the Bothy. The Bothy is not suitable for the elderly or infirm. If you're 3 couples/singles you just need the cottage. I don't often rent the cottage on its own but always worth asking . There are three wood burning stoves so its cosy.

Double bed on the mezzanine. The Bothy's great for couples and solo adventurers. It's completely self contained with access at the back of Bridgend Cottage.
