Tackroom Cottage near Newton Stewart Galloway Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks ideal for Adventure holidays in Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland


Tackroom Cottage offers charm and character in this unusual, 200 year old, property situated within the cobbled courtyard of the original listed stable block for the private Cairnsmore Estate. The cottage is dog-friendly and sleeps up to 2 people.

Cairnsmore Estate was once the shooting estate for the Dukes of Bedford. The cottage’s fantastic position provides a tranquil base from which to explore this part of south west Scotland. Tackroom Cottage is one of only 10 residences on the estate.

As the name denotes, this cottage was once the Tack Room for the stable block on the Estate. Tackroom Cottage is situated opposite our other holiday property within the Stable Courtyard, Cairnsmore Stable Cottage, and provides spacious and quirky living accommodation, mainly on the ground level, with a snug upstairs offering a day bed and selection of books for those quiet times.

The cosy wood-panelled bedroom comprises of a comfortable Edwardian double bed, with bedside tables, and also has the original (non-working) range in the fireplace. This room is accessed via the adjacent dressing-room with additional antique furniture. Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels are provided.

The welcoming lounge/dining room is dual aspect and overlooks both the courtyard and the garden. The room is furnished with 2 comfortable sofas, oak dining and coffee tables and a large freeview TV. Paintings from local artists are on show around the cottage. The dining table overlooks the garden and you can sit and watch the slow-paced world of Cairnsmore go by.

The bathroom has a bath with overhead shower and the bright kitchen is well-equipped including an integral fridge and freezer, a dishwasher, electric cooker and microwave. The cottage has oil central heating.

The garden is accessed through the oversized back door leading from the hallway, and you can easily imagine the horses being led through this and into the courtyard beyond over the past generations. Just a few steps from the door and across the single track wrapping around the side of the cottage, it is surrounded on all sides by stone dykes and also houses a pair of unusual and rare granite columned hay barns. Guests have access to a gas bbq under one of the barns and the garden also has 2 lawned areas which provide lovely surroundings to while away a few hours in the sun, watching the red squirrels scurrying around and the red kites soaring overhead. 

Tackroom Cottage offers a relaxing, quiet, ‘get away from it all’ experience in this beautiful and often forgotten corner of Scotland. Galloway has an abundance of outdoor pursuits, loch, forest, coastal and hill walks, mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits. Newton Stewart is known as the gateway to the Galloway hills and hosts the annual Walkfest each May which offers organised and varied walks of all abilities, all guided and supported by the local Mountain Rescue Team. The local hills include the Range of the Awfu’ hand, Dungeon Hill and the Merrick. And of course the cottage itself is situated at the foot of Cairnsmore of Fleet, our second highest hill in the area, and the route can be joined just at the top of the lane. We are also within striking distance of several sections of the Southern Upland Way - the 212 miles coast to coast long distance walk across southern Scotland.

For those looking for a more relaxing holiday there are many scenic areas accessible by car and the Gulf Stream benefits several botanical gardens in the area and are an enthusiast’s delight. Galloway’s villages and towns have much to offer visitors. The area has several ‘themed’ market towns, Castle Douglas, the food town and Kirkcudbright, the Artists town are approximately 30 minutes away by car. Nearer to home is Wigtown, the Book Town, which stages the internationally acclaimed annual book festival each September. Newton Stewart also boasts its own gin distillery and the southern most whiskey distillery has recently re-opened in Bladnoch. Local cheeses, chocolate and real ale can also be found within this small region of Galloway.

Tackroom Cottage can also be booked for short breaks from November to March for a three-night minimum stay.
