The Experience

Warmed by the Gulf Stream, lapped by the waters of Loch Ryan, this 1,400 acre estate is yours to share. Innumerable native and exotic trees flourish, deer cross the lawns, red squirrels, hedgehogs and hares drop by, and the self-catering cottages, down a private drive, ooze style and polish. The first lies in a two-storey wing of the rambling Georgian house, with gorgeous garden views; the second is above the old stables. Super-inviting under sloping ceilings, it has a cosy wood-burner and its own garden. Both are immaculate, with painted wrought-iron beds, new carpets, gleaming floors and a scattering of prints by Scottish artists. Kitchens have all you need, there’s a farm shop nearby and the nearest restaurant is seven miles. Owners Kate and Angus, the nicest pair, leave you welcome goodies, flowers, board games and DVDs; best of all, they are happy for young guests to share their children’s play house and trampoline. If you bring a big crowd there’s High Clachan, a handsome farmhouse for 8, just down the road. Come for gardens by the hatful, vast sands at Luce, the old harbour of Portpatrick (and its great pubs!). Or catch the ferry to Belfast.

Accommodation

Reviews

We had a wonderful week at High Clachan Farmhouse. The house is very spacious, warm and comfortable, everything has been thought of and it is extremely well equipped. The bathrooms are huge! Angus and Kate are consummate hosts, no expense has been spared on the quality of bedding, towels etc. The Estate has very good walks from the door and it's an easy 10 minute drive to Stranraer for any shopping. There are also many gardens, beaches and sights to visit within easy driving distance. We'll definitely be making a return visit sometime in the future.

Moira, Edinburgh

We booked Highclachan Farmhouse for a short stay at the end of September for my daughter's 30th birthday. The property is well located near Loch Ryan & the village of Kirkcolm near Stranraer. The property itself is beautifully furnished with each bedroom having a lovely big bathroom with giant tubs for bathing. Great for a good hot soak after a long walk. The house was very comfortable & warm. The large kitchen has a big dining table ideal for long leisurely dinners and lunches. Would thoroughly recommend. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Carol, Monmouth

Beautiful cottage and wonderful hosts. No need to leave the estate everything on your doorstep. Fabulous walks through the gardens and woodlands. Waterside rambles and so much wildlife. Would highly recommend!

Cris, Bedfordshire

We knew we’d made the right choice as soon as we arrived. The Stables Cottage was lovely- clean and comfortable. Tasty brownies, jam and dog biscuits left for us. Grounds of estate are gorgeous, with a variety of impressive trees and plants. The grounds are free to roam, the trampoline and zip wire were a major hit with our kids, and we often came across deer. There are several walks and it’s not far to the edge of the loch, great for skimming stones and watching the big ferries. Kate and Angus were so welcoming and even posted some books we left behind. Best of all, it’s SO quiet! 5 star

Lucy, Lincoln

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at High Clachan farmhouse. The house was very comfortable, well equipped and clean. We enjoyed the lovely walks around the estate and watching the deer and rabbits from the house. There was lots to see in the area and we enjoyed eating out at the local restaurants. Kate and Angus were great hosts, providing lots of information on the area and where to eat. This is definitely a house to return to.

Christine, Comber

A lovely cottage in an excellent location. Very relaxed and hospitable hosts who have created a welcoming environment in an historic setting. Paths through the estate have been created for all comers and they must be appreciated by visitors and locals alike.

Richard, Stow-on-the-Wold

We had a wonderful week at High Clachan Farmhouse on Corsewall Estate. The house had everything we needed, was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The setting, beside a bluebell wood leading down to a sweet little bay, was lovely. Galloway is delightful. We enjoyed daily outings to beautiful gardens, such as Logan and Castle Douglas, and had some great coastal walks. We even managed swims at Lady Bay. Hosts, Kate and Angus, are very welcoming and helpful. I can highly recommend High Clachan or one of the other cottages on Corsewall Estate.

Sue, Berwick upon Tweed

Well worth it. Lovely cottage, thoughtful interior design, amazing welcome brownies. Loads of beautiful walks, including to a beach in about 10 mins, and great kids play areas without even having to leave the estate. Would highly recommend.

Jonathan, Glasgow

We enjoyed 5 nights at Cedar Lodge. It's very warm, clean and comfortable and everything is to a very high standard. This must be one of the best self catering properties my husband and I have rented. It's very well equipped and practical. Kate and Angus, the owners, are very welcoming and all booking communications have been quickly handled despite problems due to covid restrictions. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Joan, Dunblane

Just returned from a stay at Stable Cottage. The cottage is beautifully furnished. Luxury of good shower with hot water always available. Well made paths from the cottage link to public footpaths. Lots of birds on the beaches in the estate and we saw deer, red squirrels, hares and rabbits. We, and our dog, loved our escape to Corsewall Estate.

Judith, Newcastle upon Tyne

Beautiful and peaceful location with amazing friendly hosts in a non intrusive way. The Stables was fully equipped and extremely comfortable with a plentiful supply of logs for the wood burner. Lovely walks though the grounds and up to Lady Bay. Great for cycling with a rolling landscape. Fabulous little shop in Leswalt for those items I missed off the Morrions delivery. Lovely pint of Game Bird in the village pub chatting to the friendly locals (socially distanced of course). I would recommend staying here for those looking for some space and peace and quiet. Thank you Angus and Kate.

Roger and Jane, Great Waltham

Our second visit to this property which we loved on the first trip and this time we took family with us who also loved it. Great accommodation with everything you can want amidst the delightful surroundings of the estate including walks (and swimming for the dogs in the loch). The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Planning a third visit!

Amanda, Bridgwater

We had a fantastic stay at Garden Cottage on the estate. It was very comfortable and the estate grounds and walks were beautiful. All helped by beautiful weather - we swam every day at some of the beautiful beaches off the coast path. A great family holiday.

Jeremy, Bristol

This was our second time staying in Stables Cottage with our two daughters aged 6 and 4. Once more, we had an absolutely wonderful stay on the Corsewall Estate. Despite the world being a different place to last time, Kate and Angus were always around and on hand for a chat which always makes such a difference. The cottage, and indeed the whole estate, was a perfect 'home' for our 2 weeks in D+G and our daughters are already looking forward to our next visit (as are we!). Corsewall is a wonderful place to stay when visiting D+G, which in itself must be Scotland's 'hidden gem'. Thank you!

Scott, Cheltenham

Garden Cottage at Corsewall Estate is wonderful - spacious, beautifully appointed, well equipped accommodation in a lovely country estate near the sea. Lots of walks in the grounds and down to the Loch plus its own beach at Lady Bay. Coastal walks, croquet on the lawn and barbecues on the beach - bliss!

Joanna, Liverpool

Amazing cottage with everything you could need in a beautiful spot - really well thought out accommodation with wonderful grounds - we hope to head back soon

Mark, Soulbury

We had a lovely relaxing weekend at Garden cottage. The cottage is well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. A lovely walks straight from the door.

Katie, Perth

Garden Cottage is beautifully appointed, grounds and superb, but most of all the owners are so friendly

Alasdair, Stirling

We had such a wonderful stay here at High Clachan. The house is beautiful and so homely. The dog enjoyed her biscuits almost as much as we enjoyed the delicious brownies! Thank you. The children all had such a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom that the area afforded them – meaning the adults were able to completely relax. We hope to be back again soon. Many, many thanks.

Fiona, Kilbirnie

Thanks so much Kate and Angus for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. We hadn’t expected to be in this beautiful part of Scotland, but are so glad that we did. We don’t think that we have ever seen such beauty, and it has made our 25th wedding anniversary something so special.

Local points of interest from Kate Carrick-Buchanan

  • Red squirrels are us! We have four feeders dotted about the estate and you can watch the bushy tailed creatures feeding and getting up to their tricks - it's highly entertaining viewing! Other wildlife on the estate includes roe deer, hares and otters.
  • We have created a network of magnificent woodland paths and coastal walks around the Estate. There are lots of different options for shorter or longer walks and no need to drive anywhere. The wildflowers and the sea views are wonderful.
  • The Estate has three lovely beaches so grab a swimming costume/wet suit/paddle board/kayak or a bucket and spade and go!
  • There are lots of gardens to visit in the area including Glenwhan and Castle Kennedy. The jewel in the crown is Logan Botanical Gardens - which has a wonderful array of exotic plants and a tip top cafe to boot too
  • For the great outdoors, head to the Galloway Forest Park and enjoy stunning walks or mountain biking in the hills.
  • With some of the clearest night time skies in the country, you could book a star gazing evening on the Estate with our friendly Dark Skies Park Ranger.
