4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

I think 'Wow', every time I walk through the door. The sense of space and light is instantly calming.

High quality holiday house, great rural location and quiet. Also dog allowed which was important for us. Decent range of shops/eating places a short drive away in C Douglas.

Additional amenities & feature info
Larch house has been built to an exacting standard in a contemporary style but keeping the essence of rural living, off the beaten track but within 2 miles of the euro route. It benefits from a south facing aspect and has a light open plan feel to the main living area. It has a great deal of ecological aspects including solar panels to heat the water, under floor heating from the log burner and the whole house is super insulated. All these eco measures have been used without compromising luxury living.

Egyptian cotton has been used throughout for the bedding and towels and goose down duvets .
All appliances are brand new.

We think Larch House offers stylish, luxurious and cosy accommodation for families or groups of friends keen to explore this unique landscape.
