Children are welcome at Brockloch Bothy but we’re sorry, it’s not suitable for pets.
George and Julie have diversified impressively on their small, family-run farm in the Galloway hills: up the farm track, through the bluebell wood, and in a field grazed by their Scottish Blackface sheep, Brockloch Bothy has already settled comfortably into its new home.
It has all the luxuries of a boutique cottage - a swish kitchen, a crackling fire, home-baked welcome treats - with a lightness that springs from sincere eco-credentials and contemporary design. Made of sustainable timber, with cosy goose-down duvets, a wool mattress on the double bed, and Earthborn paints throughout, the Bothy is insulated with sheep's wool. Two more can sleep on the double sofa bed, and there's a separate shower room with loo. The two large solar panels on the roof power the lighting and charge your phone or laptop, but there's no TV or wifi. Instead watch the world go by from wide windows, or relax into the silence, complete apart from the yip of a fox or the hoot of an owl.
Play at Famous Five on the rocky crags and hidden coves of nearby beaches, taste local game from great farm shops and restaurants, visit the 'Artists' Town' of Kirkcudbright, or experience the UK's longest zip wire.
