Self-catering cottage by the Galloway Forest Park, SW Scotland

Holiday accommodation in Laurieston, Galloway Forest Park

Welcome to Rose Haugh

Rose Haugh is now CLOSED for self-catering holidays.

The owner's ill health and advancing age have made her decide that now is the time to stop sharing her house and garden with visitors, and to live permanently in it herself.

Sorry to have to let down the many returning visitors and friends who have relied on the place as a haven to spend time in over the years.

Rose Haugh is a dignified old house in the small village of Laurieston on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park. Warm and comfortable at all times of year, it is a great base for exploring this part of southwest Scotland. Here is a land of green hills, shining lochs and stately forests, a little-developed haven for every sort of wildlife, lying between the hills of the Southern Uplands and the coast of the Solway Firth. Small towns and villages offer a friendly welcome for visitors, with lots of visitor attractions and a lively rural economy.

There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities on quiet rural roads and in the forests. Loch and sea fishing, golf, riding, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and children’s adventure courses are all a few miles away. The beaches, cliffs and estuaries of the Solway coast are worth the drive for active days out. With good local food, craftwork, historical sites and museums, fine gardens and amazing wildlife, there is everything to make for a memorable holiday. And the house has its own large garden for relaxing in peace and seclusion.

The house can sleep as many as 8, but terms are reduced for lesser numbers to make it available for smaller families or couples on their own.
