About Carsebuie

Carsebuie is an enchanting old farm steading now available as a perfect holiday retreat in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Guests love the tranquility of the setting on the fringe of the Galloway Forest Park. Carsebuie has been fully updated to provide all the modern comforts you may need on holiday.

Whilst the cottage is cosy and romantic enough for couples, it is far more spacious than it looks and the original accommodation has been carefully and cleverly extended to comfortably accommodate eight to ten guests.

From the cottage you can enjoy views over surrounding farmland to the distant hills beyond. The birdsong is music to your ears, and it is a real delight to see the red squirrels that frequent the rambling cottage garden which is divided by moss covered stone walls and rustic fences. There is colour pretty much all year round, and plenty to do for guests of every age.

The cottage is far enough away to offer total seclusion yet near enough to the town of Newton Stewart should you want to visit a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool, a tennis court, three supermarkets, a cinema, a delicatessen, a chemist, numerous cafes and restaurants, banks or pick up a take away. For those who enjoy being by the sea, sandy beaches at Sandhead, Garlieston, Luce Bay and Port William can be found less than thirty minute drive away.

The area is very good for mountain biking of all levels, where you can enjoy the Kirroughtree forest and the famous ‘7 Stanes' - over 400km of trails, spread across 7 trail centres from Glentress to Glentrool. Hire bikes can also be delivered to your cottage. Fly fishing permits are available on various nearby rivers and lochs and sea fishing trips from Stranraer, Cairnryan and Port Patrick can be arranged. Golfers can choose from thirty excellent golf courses including links.

Outdoor pursuits are plentiful and include: Horse riding, shooting, golfing, fishing, off road and tank driving, mountain biking, hill walking, sailing, wind surfing and nature watching. Tennis and bowling courts are found in most of the villages and towns in the area.

Places to visit include: Light houses; ancient monuments including stone circles and castles; antique and art galleries; gardens and tea rooms; various museums including gem rock museum and dolls house museum; ice cream maker; cheese maker; adventure playground; open farms and wildlife parks.
