The perfect retreat for writers and artists, this cosy en-suite hut provides a rural escape away from life's hustle and bustle.
Carraig Shepherd’s Hut is a peaceful, relaxing, romantic haven for 2 set in its own private garden in the grounds of Carsebuie. Escape everyday stresses and restore your soul in this hidden gem.
The cosy hut has been carefully furnished for every comfort.
The double bed has a deep 2000-pocket sprung mattress, made up with luxurious, organic, fairtrade cotton bedlinen. The pillows and duvet are hypoallergenic, filled with pure sheep’s wool contained in organic cotton. No chemicals or pollutants.
Woollen throws and cosy cushions transform it into a day bed to lounge on, or to curl up on and read a book, or even to watch a film on your tablet (free wifi).
The little log-burning stove warms the hut well in cold weather, with logs, kindling and firelighters included in the rental.
A mini electric oven will cook everything from a roast to cupcakes! It has 2 hotplates on top to heat up soup or boil the kettle. (Or put the kettle on the stove!). There is a full-size fridge. (no ice-box).
Water is from the owners’ private well. It complements local Bladnoch whisky beautifully!
After your shower, relax by the stove, cocooned in luxurious organic and fairtrade towels. Gorgeous toiletries supplied are from luxury brand Noble Isle. They contain no parabens, are vegan friendly and smell divine.
On the deck there are wonderful long-distance views to the Galloway Hills. Sitting at the bistro table with your morning coffee you might be watched by Farmer Davy’s cattle!
You might spot hares racing across the fields. You will see every kind of wild bird. Look out for red squirrel, deer. Hear buzzards cry and ravens bark. Put out food for the birds ( peanuts provided!) and keep the bird bath filled with water.
On a cloudless night, lie back on the deck and gaze at the myriad of stars, marvelling at their beauty.
The proprietors live in Carsebuie and will remain discreetly out of your way unless needed. (However their elderly, friendly Labradoodle may occasionally make herself known!).
