Description of Rockville

Rockville is a traditional listed cottage dating back to the 1840's. It has been greatly extended to provide a very comfortable and spacious holiday home in the beautiful Machars area of Dumfries and Galloway. The cottage sleeps 11 comfortably in 5 bedrooms - 2 double (one with en-suite bathroom, one with en-suite shower room), two twin and another with three single beds. There is oil fired central heating, two wood burning stoves, and in the kitchen an electric range cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The living room is a fabulous double height room with exposed beams, large TV with Sky, and a variety of games. The cottage is in the village of Kirkinner (shop - 50 yards, pub - 90 yards) opposite the immaculate village bowling green. Kirkinner is 10 minutes drive from the sea, 5 minutes from Wigtown (Scotland's national 'Book Town') and 15 minutes from the Isle of Whithorn at the southern tip of the peninsula. To the north is the Galloway Forest, a drive of approximately 20 minutes . It is a fabulous area for those interested in birdwatching, with the nearby Wigtown Bay Nature reserve home (seasonally) to Osprey, Pink Footed Geese and hordes of waders, and the RSPB's nature reserve is less than half an hour away. The area also has a great variety of entertainments for kids - including the beaches and rock-pools, Kirroughtree Forest Park (including adventure playground, nature trails and mountain biking), the Gem Rock museum in Creetown, and the fabulous Cream Of Galloway Organic Ice Cream farm and adventure playgrounds! See the 'links' section for more details.
