Wellhouse Farm is a hidden gem which has been subject to conversion and improvement in recent years. It is surrounded by countryside with a small area of woodland, and has views over to the mountains within the 300 square mile Galloway Forest Park. The property is being sold due to retirement, offering the opportunity for someone new to continue the business and develop further if they so wish. Wellhouse Farm offers a lifestyle change, an opening to become self-sufficient with income received from both long term lets and holiday lets. There is also scope to generate further income, the secluded fields edged with woodland, would be ideal for glamping, subject to obtaining all relevant planning permission.
In 1994 planning permission was granted for the conversion of farm buildings to houses, reference 94/TP/1020, Popsal Cottage and Meadowfoot Cottage were part of the renovation project, the remaining barn could be converted to complete the trio of cottages, or left as is, providing useful storage. Wren's Nest, currently a one bedroom studio, could be extended to form a separate dwelling house, subject to relevant permissions being sought.
This collection of properties are arranged around a courtyard but with no windows from the cottages overlooking one another creating the feeling of seclusion. The accommodation can be seen in more detail in the floor plans contained within the brochure
