Townhead Cottage is a charming extended cottage


Townhead Cottage occupies a picturesque rural position surrounded by open farmland and woodland. The property is situated within close proximity to the villages of Kirkpatrick Durham and Corsock. These villages are popular locations for game shooting due to the numerous surrounding mature oak woodlands and conifer plantations. Additional country sport and leisure pursuits including walking, cycling, fishing and several golf courses on the south west of Scotland including New Galloway, Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Southerness. Sailing and water sports are available at Loch En, Kipford, Kirkcudbright and elsewhere on the Solway Firth. In 2009 the International Dark Sky Association confirmed Dark Sky status on the Galloway Forest Park, the first area in Scotland to be so designated.


Townhead Cottage is a charming extended cottage built circa 1850 and recently extended to form a beautiful drawing room overlooking the front gardens and riding arena. Townhead Cottage is set in two acres which include a paddock and outdoor riding arena which measures 35 x 20 m. The cottage was re-slated approximately six years ago and within the grounds of the property there are two large stables with two substantial stores adjacent. Accommodation comprises: reception hallway with slate flooring, open plan sitting room / dining room with multi fuel burner, beautiful drawing room which was extended in 2012 with picture windows to the front of the property and a welcoming woodburning stove; master bedroom with en suite shower room off, two additional double sized bedrooms, fitted breakfasting kitchen with twin oven Aga at its heart, utility room, cloakroom / WC and family bathroom with three piece modern white suite. The gardens surrounding Townhead Cottage are mainly lawned with beautiful open aspects over the surrounding countryside. The outdoor riding arena is fenced.
