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.

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

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

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

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.

Jane and Stephen, Nailsworth

Thank you so much Kate & Angus! We had the most wonderful week staying in Home Farm Cottage such an idyllic setting with fantastic hosts (and amazing brownies upon arrival!). There is nothing else we could have asked for and we have already booked to go back at the end of this year. A memorable holiday for us all and a truly beautiful place.


Fantastic house , beautiful location, high quality fittings and furniture: decorated very tastefully : We absolutely loved our stay and so did our spaniel.. the house is warm and cosy .. we spent hours just watching the wild life from the conservatory .. a very special place : Fantastic helpful owners too .

Diane, York

Home Farm Cottage on the Corsewall Estate is absolutely top quality in beautiful peaceful surroundings. The cottage is home from home with everything you need, very tastefully presented and extremely comfortable. Looking out onto the garden to see the wildlife and rabbits is so very relaxing. Good restaurants available a short drive away and beautiful scenery and coastline. Perfect!

Lesley, Oldham

Short break in Home Farm Cottage with our dogs was a lovely escape in this tranquil setting with pleasant walks from the door round the estate and down to shores of Loch Ryan. This character cottage is lovely, with quality finishes throughout, very comfortable and great garden for the dogs. Highly recommend.

K, NStewart

Corsewall Estate is an absolute gem of a place. Quiet, beautiful and in a part of Scotland well off the beaten track. Empty beaches and glorious woodland walks. Kate and Angus could not have been more helpful and our cottage was perfect in every way. A fabulous family holiday.

Jane, London

Stables Cottage on the Corsewall Estate was a cosy, stylish and well appointed cottage on a beautiful estate, with magical gardens for adults and children to explore. All this in a corner of south-west Scotland which feels more remote than it actually is, with much to explore. We were three adults and a two year old, and had a great time. Would love to come back some day.

Sally, Kingston on Thames

As a family group of 6 adults, we stayed at High Clachan for a week and had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable and it is in an idyllic area. It was very peaceful and great to be able to walk from the house up the lane to Port Beg with virtually no-one else around. We enjoyed watching the swallows, buzzards, rabbits and occasional deer from the house. A beautiful area of Scotland to stay in with an interesting coastline. Kate was a charming host.


Superb! Stables cottage was beautifully set out and had everything we could want. With two small children (2 and 4) the use of the trampoline, wendy house, swings and slides and estate was fabulous, as was the beach within walking distance. The holiday was made by the hosts themselves, who were generous in sharing both their property and their time - giving us tips, letting us collect eggs and strawberries in the beautiful walled garden, lending us a tent for a camp out, providing midge repellent!!, their children playing with ours. Thank you Kate and Angus!


Wonderful location, stunning house and when we visited we had beautiful weather. This really is a home from home. Everything was perfect, our hosts, Kate and Angus, very welcoming and the children loved the cookies on arrival!


We celebrated a family birthday at Corsewall, renting both High Clachan and Stables cottage. The quality of both was superb, they are beautifully decorated, immaculately tidy, extremely comfortable and offer exceptional value for money. The owners were charming and our children loved exploring the estate and gardens, they have a lovely play area and trampoline which guests are able to use. All in all it was faultless, and we look forward to our next visit.


We had a wonderful stay at Garden Cottage. It is beautifully decorated and very well appointed, a real home from home. It is clear that lots of thought has been put in to ensure you have a perfectly relaxing holiday. Our 2 young children loved walking and playing in the grounds and on the play equipment and were made to feel very welcome. Kate and Angus even lent us a child carrier which made walks in the gardens, woods and beaches much easier than with our buggy. We would definitely look forward to a return visit.


Just had a really lovely stay at Corsewall. The Stables is lovely, just as the website describes and more. We loved being on the estate with the freedom to walk wherever we wanted. Sidney loved his doggy holiday, he fell in love with the resident dogs. Kate and Angus are lovely hosts, so helpful, with lots of ideas for days out. We loved it.


We had a wonderful time at Stables Cottage. Kate and Angus made us so welcome. The cottage was perfect, and the estate was so beautiful that we didn’t actually visit many of the places we had planned to, because we were happy to wander in the fresh air and enjoy cosy evenings “at home”! We loved watching the squirrels, hares, and deer, and the view of the walled garden from the bedroom window was delightful.


Emma and I had a fabulous time at corsewall ..... In fact it was the first time We both managed to relax and wind down away from the pressures of work. The stables were simply perfect . Emma and I are quite careful these days on picking places as we have, in the past, been disappointed with web image versus reality .... This was not the case at the stables.... All was simply better than we could have wished for :-) we both loved the way you both had decorated .... And spending a week in a cottage that is comfortable makes a big difference.    We will have no problems returning

The neighbourhood

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.
  • The cottages are a pretty walk from the estate's three beaches on the shores of Loch Ryan. Boat Bank Beach is a great spot for shells - big and small.
  • Got kids? Do a day trip to the Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory and the Cream O' Galloway Ice Cream Factory. The chocolate factory runs excellent kids' workshops and has brilliant indoor and outdoor play areas. Cream O' Galloway's ice cream is to die for.
  • 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. Or go star gazing at night as it's the home to the UK's only Dark Sky Park.
  • The Old Colfin Creamery, just outside Portpatrick, is a must for wonderful dishes inspired from around the globe.
