Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that Larch House looks like a standard barn conversion; A stone building, sitting in the grounds of a Galloway farm, but this is truly out of the ordinary. I think 'Wow', every time I walk through the door. The sense of space and light is instantly calming.
Larch House is set in the heart of Galloway's great outdoors just 3 miles from Castle Douglas with it's fine shops, galleries, cafes and eateries.

It is a perfect base for the many mountain bike trails in the area and for road cycling. There is secure storage for your sports equipment and mountain bike guiding is available with a qualified local guide.

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.
