Faldarroch Farm

Dumfries & Galloway

Kick off your hiking boots and gather around the range at this immaculately restored 1830s dairy farm. Watch stars, listen for owls...

Sleeps 5


Drive through Galloway’s rich, rolling pastures to discover an early Victorian dairy farm with late Elizabethan eco features: solar panel, wood pellet boiler and top-notch insulation. It’s a marvellous restoration with cottage, paddock and outbuildings (great for muddy boots and bikes) all present and correct. Inside, the living/kitchen area in cream and sage warms from all angles, with heated slate floors, working Victorian range and a wood-burner asking to have an armchair drawn up to it. Handsome dark wood furnishings, handmade kitchen units and a Belfast sink complete the cosy picture. Bedrooms bookend the living area, the master with a white four-poster and brass fixtures draped in muslin, another with its own wood-burner; the family room has two box beds and a single cast-iron bed. Engaging owner Julia, whose local knowledge is worth mining, lives two miles away in Whithorn, where you can grab groceries or a cafe-style lunch. To the south lies the rugged coastline of the Solway Firth, to the north the ruggeder hills of Galloway Forest Park. Stargazers will cherish the dark nights and pincushion skies.
