Challoch Farm :
Centrally heated throughout, the overall spaciousness of the house allows our guests to have the use of the main Sitting Room where you can curl up with a book on the squashy sofas, watch TV or on chillier evenings simply enjoy the cheeriness of the log fire.
Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. (earlier/later by arrangement) in the sunny Dining Room overlooking the lawn. You will be treated to a full traditional Scottish breakfast straight from the AGA. As we want you to enjoy your breakfast, other options are available and we will cater for special diets if required.
The bedrooms are upstairs, overlooking lawns and woodland. They are equipped with TV, Radio/Alarm, Tea/Coffee tray and Hairdryer.

Challoch Farm is 2½ miles north of Newton Stewart in the valley of the River Cree. It is an ideal base from which to enjoy the many countryside activities in this beautiful corner of Scotland.
Dumfries and Galloway holds many excellent nature reserves; the nearest is the RSPB Reserve at Wood of Cree, where there are many species of songbirds, but there is also the huge local authority coastal reserve at Wigtown.
We are within 12 miles of the outstanding beauty of Glen Trool, the site of a victory won by King Robert the Bruce in his quest to keep Scotland an independent Kingdom.
Not much further away is the Merrick, at 844 metres (2770 feet) the highest hill in the Southern Uplands, but only one of the beautiful and unspoilt walks in this area.
The Galloway Forest Park has many pleasant walks and nature trails, or you may prefer to head south, east or west, to enjoy the varied coastlines of the Machars, the Stewartry and the Rhins. These peninsulas are a joy to explore, with their ancient Standing Stones, ruined Castles, flower-rich Gardens and old Burgh Towns. Wigtown is Scotland's new National Book Town, whilst the nearby town of Whithorn is older than Iona, being the cradle of Christianity in Scotland.
For the dedicated sportsman, there are a wide range of choices. Dumfries and Galloway has thirty Golf Courses, whilst arrangements can be made in Newton Stewart for all types of Deerstalking, Wildfowling and Fishing.
