Galloway Escapes will be working with the talented Leah Halliday to host our next Sewing Retreat at Craigbittern from 5th until 7th May 2018.


Join us for a creative adventure of sewing workshops, mouthwatering food, and long-lasting friendships against the stunning backdrop of the Solway Coast.

Our Sewing Retreat involves a two-night stay at Craigbittern. All meals are provided, including canapés and a three-course celebration meal and there will be three sewing workshops over the course of the retreat as well as copious amounts of tea and cake!

In between workshops, you’ll be free to relax and explore the beautiful surroundings of the Solway coasts: a perfect chance to escape the stresses of modern life.

Happy Clients that have stayed with us

  • Perfect is the only way to describe this property and it's surroundings. The house itself set in a stunning location, with each room furnished to a very high standard is so warming and welcoming. If you can pull yourself away from the property, you are never short of things to do, with the beach across the road and coastal walk to the beautiful coastal villages Rockliffe and Kippford. Such an amazing place, perfect for a family get together or group of friends, can't recommend enough. Will definitely be back in the near future.

  • 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!).

  • 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.
    Emma Porter- Craigbittern
  • What a stunning house. We loved everything from the fully stocked kitchen to the cosy decor to the open fires and luxurious bedrooms. They've thought of everything - even a games room, x box, and treasure hunt for the kids!
