DESCRIPTION
The stone built four bedroom cottage (known as Sawmill Cottages as it was originally two back-to-back cottages for estate workers at Glasserton sawmill) is currently a very successful holiday let, providing a ‘digital detox’ for visitors to relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. By choice there is no television or broadband in the property, visitors instead chose to enjoy the peace and quiet, as they ‘escape to the country’. Both could of course be installed should the focus of the cottage change. Telephone cable is already installed.
The astragal windows throughout enhance the country cottage feel, in addition to the deep solid stone walls and cosy open fire in the Sitting Room. The Kitchen has an oil fired Rayburn, providing cooking facilities as well as heating the hot water. In addition there is a two ring electric hob for instant cooking heat. The Kitchen has both a dishwasher and washing machine, and two full height shelved pantry/storage cupboards.
The double aspect Master Bedroom is bright and spacious with en-suite facilities. All four Bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and garden views.
Heating is gas central heating which also heats the water, and an immersion heater can be switched on for instant hot water.

Sawmill Cottages sits under a tiled roof, has garden on three sides and a private parking area. It could continue as a holiday let, or be transformed into a lovely family home in a rural setting just minutes from the sea.

SITUATION
Sawmill Cottages is situated on the edge of the small hamlet of Glasserton, less than three miles from the Royal Burgh of Whithorn and not more than 4 miles from the picturesque coastal villages of Monreith and the Isle of Whithorn.

Whithorn is known as the ‘Cradle of Christianity in Scotland’, being the place St Ninian arrived at in the AD390’s after studying in Rome, and built the first Christian church in Scotland. Whithorn is an attractive village with local amenities including shops, café, pharmacy, primary school, veterinary surgery, doctors’ surgery and garage providing both repairs and fuel. Historic interest has increased in the village following the construction of an Iron Age roundhouse which portrays how people in Galloway lived in the fifth century BC.

The Isle of Whithorn has one of Galloway’s busiest small harbours with local and Isle of Man fishing boats regularly landing catches of lobster. There are mooring facilities for visiting yachts and a purpose built slipway.
St Medan’s Golf Club, a very challenging nine hole course based around a coastal Iron Age fort, is four miles away.

Newton Stewart, approximately 20 miles north offers a wider range of shops and offices, including a leisure centre, secondary school and two supermarkets. Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town, around 13 miles north, holds the annual Wigtown Book Festival, and is home to many bookshops and cafes, with the famous Bladnoch Distillery located just outside the town.
