“Isobel's place is very comfortable, a little self catering flat. Very reasonable. I booked for a friend and she thought it was the best. Milk and juice, tea and coffee etc all provided and easy to walk to from the town. My friend was absolutley impressed and said Isobel was a very friendly and helpful host. She would recommend 100%. Thank you Isobel.”
Escape off grid to this secluded self contained large studio room deep in the countryside in Galloway . The accommodation is an annex of our own home and has its own private entrance and en-suite bathroom complete with shower and bath. We are situated on a small holding far from the maddening crowds and under the Galloway dark sky.
“We loved being so out of the sticks at The Snug - it was everything we needed post-lockdown, to get away from the news, social media, and into solitude and peace! Wendy's place was very off-grid and about ten miles from the nearest town, pub etc - this was exactly what we wanted. So nice to not be able to get a phone signal for a weekend, and to be so close to the beautiful walks and nature of the Galloway Forest. We did the Glentrool Loch circuit on one day, which was stunning, and then spent another day looking at some of the sights through Kirroughtree Forest, along with some walking trails - Murray's monument, the ruin of Murray's house, Raider's Drive and a trail from Kirroughtree visitor centre. There is a lot to see in the area, and we could have easily stayed for longer. We visited Kirkcudbright on the return journey home. The accommodation itself was perfect for the weekend and good value - no kitchen (as described, which I hadn't read, haha), but we improvised with the microwave and toaster. Absolutely adored having the dogs, goats, chickens and cats around - we are animal lovers and it was lovely to be around them. Wendy had also left us some biscuits and fudge, which was a lovely touch, along with tea and coffee etc - plus some face masks, since they are now mandatory in shops in Scotland. Bed was very comfy! Do a bit of food and wine shopping in Newton Stewart or whichever town you pass before you arrive, as there are no local shops nearby. The peace at night is sublime!”

“Ruth and her husband were fantastic hosts, making us feel very welcome throughout our stay providing loads of local tips and insights. The no-fuss DIY(ish) breakfast was excellent and suited our needs perfectly. A lovely, cosy room with all the amenities made our stay an absolute pleasure. Really good location for exploring the whole of the Rhins of Galloway within a few days. We'll definitely be going back!”
