self catering accommodation with galloway escapes

escape to dumfries & galloway

We aim to provide unique and high standard self catering accommodation in the beautiful region of Dumfries and Galloway.

With its deserted beaches, rolling hills, tranquil lochs, picturesque towns and glorious unspoilt beauty, Dumfries and Galloway is the ideal place to take a holiday. It could be a peaceful break in beautiful surroundings, or perhaps a week filled with outdoor adventure; either way Galloway Escapes is here to help.

Our first property, Craigbittern House, is a stones throw away from the beautiful Sandyhills beach. The house is in two parts – the main house which has a grand, elegant feel to it and the cottage which has a more modern, cosy feel.

WHAT OUR happy customers are saying

We love our guests feedback and do our utmost to ensure complete satisfaction for your stay with us at Galloway Escapes!

What a perfect place to celebrate with friends! The house is beautiful with real fires and huge sofas to relax on with a film, book or just enjoy the wonderful sea views - the beach is just across from the house. We had fun playing table tennis in the games room! The surrounding area is great for walking but I found it hard to leave the house and gardens as this is one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed at!

We were lucky enough to be the first guests here to welcome in the New Year at Craigbittern. The house is huge and beautifully furnished and decorated. Everything you can think of has been provided - a kitchen equipped to cook roast goose for 12, a treasure hunt and games for the kids, an Xbox, table football and table tennis for the big kids, books, jigsaws and more dvds than we have at home! The weather was perfect, which meant the walk through to Kippford on New Year's Day was stunning. All in all an amazing weekend in an amazing house.

The beautiful views of the Irish Sea from the house led me into a morning run to the beach to discover a stunning landscape of green hills, shallow waters and steep cliffs. Definitely made an exceptional start to my Saturday! The house is furnished to a very high standard and made us feel cost and warm. For those wanting to spend quality time with their friends, this is the perfect retreat (the house accommodates 13 people!).

I have honestly never stayed anywhere so beautiful, the house and location were perfect and the attention to detail and little touches made it even more special. We stayed with lovely friends for the weekend and I can't speak highly enough about this place. The space in the house was perfect for a large group and to top it all off, it's a very short walk to the beach which even on a cold day was stunning!So in short....I'd highly recommended staying here and only wish I could move in!!

We stopped here for new year with a large bunch of friends and what a perfect way to see in the new year. The house is amazing and very well equipt, from the decor and furnishings, the hidden den for the kids, cosy throws and a real fire, farmhouse style kitchen and the stunning beach just over the road.
It's a great holiday home to escape day to day life and I will certainly look forward to spending time here again!
