Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Dumfries - THE OLD CHURCH HALL

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

An ideal location from which to enjoy many outdoor pursuits, including mountain biking, golf and cycling.. An ideal base from which to explore this undiscovered part of Scotland and enjoy the many outdoor pursuits, including mountain biking, golf, water sports and walking.Just off the main motorway network this undiscovered part of Scotland has much to offer. Whether you are adventurous, outdoor enthusiasts or enjoy relaxing with good food and drink there is something for all.This beautifully restored, semi-detached cottage is conveniently situated on the Solway Coast Heritage Trail and is an ideal location from which to explore this historic region of southwest Scotland.Along this trail is the film set village of New Abbey, where the romantically named Sweetheart Abbey is situated, as well as a fully operating water mill and, not forgetting an award-winning tea room.The spectacular Solway Coast is known for its golden sand flats with shingle, rock pools, fossil beds, cliffs and caves. The old port of Carsethorn, from where thousands of people emigrated to the New World, including John Paul Jones – the founder of the American Navy, is a peaceful place to watch your dog on the beach or relaxing in the welcoming shore side, dog-friendly pub.The Old Church Hall is conveniently positioned mid-way between the popular walking and world class mountain bike areas of Mabie and Dalbeattie forests. The rest of the 7 Stanes routes are within easy reach, as well as Galloway Forest Park (the first designated –Dark Sky Park’ in the UK).Wildlife is in abundance with the RSPB Mersehead nature reserve just along the coast famous for its rare natterjack toads and barnacle geese. In the woods and fields around the cottage you may see red squirrels, roe deer and red kite.Less than 4 miles away is the championship links golf course at Southerness. Slightly further afield are several other courses offering a variety of challenges.There are numerous walks to suit everybody, from beaches, coastal footpaths, linking villages to more strenuous hill walks; each giving panoramic views across the Solway firth to the Cumbrian lake District to the south, the Galloway Hills to the west and, on a clear day, even a glimpse of the Isle of Man.There’s no better place than Dumfries and Galloway to challenge yourself to a day’s fishing than the scenic unspoilt rivers and lochs. A short walk from the cottage is a fishery offering fly fishing for rainbow trout. A variety of sea fish can be caught off the local beaches and boat fishing trips can be arranged locally.The warm waters of the Gulf Stream allow many exotic plants to thrive in the area and a number of gardens open to the public all year.Explore the many unspoilt villages and towns including the scenic seaside town of Kirkcudbright with its artistic heritage and Castle Douglas, the food town, which celebrates its local food and drink in June each year.The village of Kippford is a well-known sailing centre and there is also an activity centre at Loch Ken that offers either certificated courses or a day’s experience.The Old Church Hall was originally a traditional ‘But and Ben’ and has been tastefully converted and equipped to a very good standard. It has been designed around an open plan kitchen/living area so that everyone feels included. The living area opens on to a south-west facing, enclosed patio, where you can enjoy your coffee as you plan your day ahead.Beach 1 mile. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile..
