Carsebuie is an enchanting country cottage set in an idyllic location in an area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning views over pastures and woodland to the majestic Galloway Hills. The cottage is surrounded by a large private garden, orchard and woods with moss covered stone dykes, an ideal haven for wildlife including the frequent red squirrels and brown hares and displaying colour nearly all year round. This part of Scotland is renowned for its great choice of activities for all ages.
The property is perfectly situated; you can walk in the surrounding countryside and immediately feel the sense of space and seclusion, but you are near enough to be able to pop into the local village shop for provisions and newspapers.

Mountain biking is popular in the area with nearby Kirroughtree and the famous 7Stanes. Horse riding is available for all levels just 15 minutes away. If fishing is your favourite pastime it is possible to obtain fly fishing permits on various nearby lochs and rivers and there are opportunities for sea fishing trips from Cairnryan, Stranraer and Portpatrick. A whole variety of outdoor pursuits are available with golf (the region boasts 30 courses most in fabulous settings), shooting, fishing, hill walking, sailing, windsurfing, mountain balling, off road and tank driving and many more all for your enjoyment. There are also numerous places of interest to visit, castles and caves, exotic gardens, museums and galleries, open farms and wildlife parks.
