SITUATION Hazelfield Cottage is located almost equal distance from the villages of Auchencairn and Dundrennan. Auchencairn offers a primary school, Bowling Green, a shop with a Post Office and licenced café which does takeaway most nights, a day crèche, and a car garage. There is a bus route to the local towns direct from the centre of the village and school buses travel to the High Schools at Kirkcudbright and Dalbeattie. Balcary Bay Hotel is situated just 2 miles along the Shore Road from the village, and provides first class dining and accommodation in a stunning location. The village of Dundrennan appears to be a quiet village but also has a thriving local community and quite an extraordinary history. Dundrennan Abbey, dating from 1142, was the first of three Cistercian abbeys along the Scottish coast and was founded by Fergus. Lord of Galloway. The abbey‘s most famous visitor was Mary, Queen of Scots. On 16 May 1568, she boarded a boat at a bay, now called Port Mary, near Dundrennan. She was bound for the Cumberland coast and never returned to her native land.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Front porch. Open plan living and dining area. Shower room. Bathroom. Kitchen.
