House
Family friendly luxury holiday house sleeping 14 with games and mini cinema near the beaches of Galloway

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Coachhouse, Durhamhill, Castle Douglas, sleeps 14 in 6 bedrooms.

Specially designed for large groups, with entertainment for any weather, this new conversion is welcoming and comfortable with underfloor heating, 6 bedrooms and 6 bath/shower rooms. A massive oak table seats up to 16 people, 2 seating areas have wood burners (seating 6 and 8). Outdoors there are 2 stone barbecues, 2 large tables, and a giant stone horseshoe seat with views to the hills.

The house sleeps 12 people, or 14 by using two comfortable guest beds (2'6 wide) when a sliding partition is opened between the twin and bunk room (whole new room sleeps 6, limited floor space). The sturdy bespoke bunks are fine for adults. Extra beds can be provided in the main house/games room or Bedouin tent.

The games room, in another building, has table football, small air hockey, chess and table tennis. This converts to a cosy mini-cinema.

This room is also used, with the Coach House, as an art studio for residential courses, holistic retreats and for group presentations. The whole place can be rented for private courses/conferences.

Another building has washing and drying facilities and secure storage for bicycles, motorcycles.

2 open plan kitchens, surround sound and iPod docking stations add to the luxury.

Children are welcome to help feed or walk the llamas, collect eggs and pick fruit and vegetables in season. Alan offers motorcycle sidecar trips (also drum/guitar sessions next door). Attractions include The Chocolate Factory, Mabie Farm Park, Cream O' Galloway ice cream makers and the many beaches (40 mins drive away). Threave Castle is on an island - ring a bell to call the ferryman! The garden has steep slopes and drops so supervision is needed.

Explore Galloway's stunning countryside, still relatively undiscovered by tourists - hills, lochs, rivers, woodland & stunning coastline. Watch wildlife, including red squirrels, otters, deer and red kites. Seek out Henry Moore statues on the Glenkiln Statue trail. Try out the famous 7-stanes mountain bike trails, or a new water sport, or enjoy hair-raising activities at Laggan Outdoors.

Castle Douglas, 5 miles away, The Food Town has many small shops and supermarket. Local pubs serve good food.
