Set in the glorious Galloway countryside, surrounded by quiet lanes, hills and beaches, the Marks extends you a warm welcome in the farmhouse which dates back to the 16th century.
The Marks, which dates back to the 16th century, is reputed to be the dower house for McLellan’s Castle in Kirkcudbright.
The farmhouse, with log fires roaring in the Study and Drawing room, is set in a large rambling old world garden through which you are welcome to wander. Surroundings are tranquil and peaceful, nights are stunningly starlit.
Cars are safely parked on the gravel drive at the front of the house; bikes can be stored in one of the outbuildings.
In the farmhouse we offer Bed and Breakfast, with dinner in the evening if you wish, all good home cooking using our great local produce.
The bedrooms pleasantly situated with views over the garden and Galloway countryside, are all comfortably furnished, including hospitality trays.
The farm is a very picturesque place, with the Galloway hills as a backdrop, planted up in the early 1920s as a shooting estate. With lots of woods, walks, a loch, and parkland to explore, you could enjoy a day out just around the farm.
An after-dinner seat in the garden or an evening stroll just down the Marks drive will take you into a starlit world, weather permitting of course. The lack of light pollution means that the constellations are very easily seen on a clear night.
