West Auchensheen Cottage is an attractive traditional Galloway farmhouse which has been
modernised to provide comfortable family holiday accommodation. The house is semi detached and adjacent to the former traditional steading of the owner's family farm. Visitors to the cottage have access to the farmlands and also a fishing loch which is excellent for coarse fishing for pike, perch and roach approximately 500 yards from the cottage.
The house is within walking distance of the popular Clonyard Hotel whilst the attractive seaside villages of Kippford and Rockcliffe are a short drive. The local area is steeped in history and sites such as Caerlaverock Castle near Dumfries and Sweetheart Abbey at New Abbey provide superb opportunities for exploring the areas historic heritage.
Outdoor pursuits are almost too numerous to list but include easy access to the Solway Coast with its superb sandy beaches and excellent walks, good quality nine and eighteen hole golf courses together with the Forestry Commissions 7Stanes Mountain Bike rides in the nearby Dalbeattie woods and slightly further afield in the Galloway Forest Park. Wildlife is abundant and, particularly worth a visit in autumn and winter, is the RSPB wildfowl reserve at Mersehead, Southwick.
