Falbae is a charming Scottish Holiday Cottage near Creetown in Dumfries & Galloway. The spacious fully modernised cottage sits in its own grounds and is very private but not inaccessible and close to Creetown. You drive up an access driveway past two landscaped ponds with beautiful views of the hills and the sea making this a superb spot for walking. Enjoy the abundant wildlife, including the resident barn owl, and views from the comfort of the house or lazing about in the garden. Within a short drive are beaches and superb rocky shoreland, small towns for shopping and eating out and nearby is access to extensive forest walks and hidden hill lochs. The Kirroughtree Forest, part of the 7Stanes Mountain Bike Network, is within a 20min drive and the cottage has secure bike storage. The Galloway Forest Park has also been designated Britain's first Dark Skies Park as it is a superb location for star watching.
The area is renowned for golf, birdwatching and the many beautiful gardens of South West Scotland ( Logan Botanic Gardens, Castle Kennedy and Threave Gardens are all within easy reach as well as many smaller gardens and nurseries). All country pursuits are catered for with numerous walk and also fishing opportunites and the cottage's garage is available for storing fishing gear and "wet kit".
Nearby Wigtown, Scotland"s Booktown, is a must and the Food Town of Castle Douglas and the Artists" Town of Kirkcudbright are both within easy driving distance. The well known Gem Rock Museum is under 3 miles from the cottage.
