Self catering barn in Dumfries and Galloway.

At only £80 for soul use, you wont want to miss out on this converted, family friendly hostel that sleeps six people on a working farm in the spectacular landscapes of the beautiful Galloway countryside. With a range of rooms including dormitories, family and private rooms, there’s always an ideal arrangement for all of our guests, especially with disabled access.

Situated within three miles of the NCN, and nestled among many other meandering cycle routes and footpaths, you’ll be glad to hear we have a drying room and lockable storage for your equipment after a day out discovering our incredible surroundings. Our other facilities include a dining area and separate kitchen, warmed by the heat of a wood burning stove, while also having central heating throughout the hostel.

From the surrounding farm and other local sources we can cook you up a toasty farmhouse breakfast, or with our self catering facilities and local products, you can treat your group to fresh baked bread and local honey, hand reared pork, lamb, sausage, bacon , and fresh farm eggs (all available seasonally). A truly rural experience of Scotland.
