Delightful Galloway Cottage enjoying a peaceful rural location set in approximately one acre of ground.

Mains of Twynholm Cottage enjoys an excellent rural location, surrounded by pasture, it has uninterrupted views to the Cumbrian Hills and no neighbours in close proximity.

Whilst convenient for the A75, it is far enough away from the road to be free of traffic noise. The only vehicles passing the cottage itself are those going to and from the farm at the end of the farm road.

The Cottage itself benefits from uPVC Double Glazing, PHV Solar Panels, Air Source Heat pump central heating as well as a wood burning stove in the well-proportioned sitting room with a lovely outlook over the garden.

The Cottage is situated in grounds extending to approximately one acre, most of which is easily maintained, but also offers real opportunity for the keen gardener. The current owner has used permaculture and no-dig methods to establish a productive vegetable and cut flower garden, healthy orchard (apple, pear, plum, cherry) and wildlife area with a burn running through it. Tucked away at the bottom of the garden there is a delightful shepherds hut with a wonderful decking area to enjoy the views, kites, swallows and hares.

Twynholm is an active and friendly community with the village hall hosting many popular events. There are very good amenities for a village of this size including a primary school, village shop, garage.

The cottage is very convenient for Kirkcudbright which is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by Artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned
artist, E.A. Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys” who lived in nearby Broughton House, now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Artistic tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists Town”

The south-west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf.

Adjacent to the access road is a good sized area of hard standing providing parking for several vehicles.

The grounds of the cottage wrap around the property and to the north a sizeable area behind the wooden outbuilding has been fenced off for chickens, and beyond this is deciduous woodland.
