Property Description

Genoch cottage is set on the turfy, rocky slopes of Genoch Inner Hill, toward the head of the Girvan valley in South Ayrshire.
At the end of a farm track, it is in a beautiful isolated spot, with spectacular views towards the hills over the green river valley.
 
Genoch Cottage, Galloway Forest ParkIt will appeal to all country lovers - walkers, bird-watchers, cyclists and mountain-bikers or just those who want a spot of peace and quiet.
 
There are easy walks from nearby Straiton (a pretty conservation village with shop, café and pub!), picnic spots by the river and by waterfalls, nearby beaches at Maidens and Culzean Castle, the premier visitor attraction for the National Trust for Scotland. For the more ambitious walker or mountain-biker, there is the Galloway forest park, which begins just a mile along the road from the cottage: and walks into the Galloway Hills from Glentrool - perhaps to climb Merrick, the highest mountain in Southern Scotland - make a lovely day out.  
 
The cottage has recently been modernised by the present owners, an editor and an artist, and one part of it is available for rent: the Garden Flat, which sleeps a maximum of two people.




 
Genoch Cottage, Galloway Forest ParkThe Garden Flat consists of a large and light-filled living / dining room with windows on three sides. This room contains a kitchenette, wood-burning stove, and satellite TV and DVD. There is also a double bedroom with French doors onto wooden steps leading to the garden, and a modern bathroom. WiFi broadband is available.
 
Outside, there is a simply-laid-out garden - safely fenced.
 
We are surrounded by working farmland, and there are usually lambs and calves in the open fields around the house.
 
Come and be re-invigorated and restored!
