  • Description


    We live on 4.2 acres of mixed woodland, water and marsh in Galloway, surrounded by sheep fields and looking onto the southern uplands. We are a human couple, a dog and a cat, plus deer, foxes, moorhens, buzzards and toads. We grow as much organic food as we can in our vegetable beds, large greenhouse and fruit cage, pick and preserve fruit from the trees and enjoy seasonal foraging. We have an ornamental garden which needs some maintenance, and are currently designing a new section of garden.

    Autres infos...

    Although we’re half a mile from our nearest neighbor, we are part of a lively rural community which always includes several Workaway volunteers. Virus-permitting, there will be fireside gatherings, parties and picnics. Cultural events happen at the Catstrand in New Galloway, at the Dalry village hall, or in Castle Douglas. There are endless opportunities for hill walking, cycling, fishing and bird watching in the area.
    We can pick you up from the nearest train station, at Dumfries or Lockerbie. Or you could take a bus to Castle Douglas. Lifts can be arranged to nearby towns.
