Steading Cottage

We would love to welcome you to The Steading Cottage at Kirkmabreck which has been worked by our family for four generations, almost 100yrs. This recently renovated farm cottage sits in the heart of a busy working, upland farm which breeds native Black face Sheep and Galloway cattle, it is known as The Home of The White Galloway.

The Farm sits on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Wigtown Bay with panoramic views over the “Machars” and out to the Irish Sea and the Isle of Man. It is three miles outside Creetown and ideally placed for anyone wishing to explore this unspoilt coastline and hills.

This area has so much to offer visitors from the thrill seekers racing round the mountain bike tracks at Kirroughtree to those just wanting to sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet, admiring the daytime views and the night time dark skies, free from light pollution. We are also trying to do our bit for the environment and have our own wind turbine on the hillside generating electricity.

Cottage Facilities

Our cottage was completely renovated in 2012, on the outside it is an old original farm cottage but inside it is bright well insulated and comfortable. It is set out on three levels, although it is only a two story cottage.

The ground floor has a large open plan dinning and sitting room with a log stove for the winter. In this room there is a digital TV, DVD player, CD player and a good collection of games, books and DVDs to help you relax and enjoy your stay.

A few stairs take you to a fully fitted kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Next to this there is a lovely fresh bathroom with an electric shower over the bath.

A further few stairs take you to two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with two single beds and an additional fold down bed/chair. This enables the cottage to sleep five comfortably. Both rooms have built in wardrobes and good views.

The cottage is well insulated, double glazed and as well as the log burner it has oil central heating.

We also provide an enclosed garden with a patio and a secure out building. The out building has a pulley, a tumble drier and is good space for storing bikes and drying wet outdoor clothes, very useful for those wishing to discover the many lovely local walks, gentle climbs or the numerous mountain bike routes within the Galloway Forrest Park, which you can cycle to along a National Cycle route from the bottom of our road.

Having an enclosed garden allows us to welcome well behaved pets to the cottage just be careful with them if you are near livestock and do what responsible owners always do, bring your own bedding for them, tidy up after them and ensure they stay downstairs in the living areas.
