The Retreataway at Ross Bay

Our Ross Bay Retreataway…..just as it says………..

A beautiful, cosy, bijoux, bespoke retreataway designed for two.  A cosy coastal retreat with a small enclosed sun terrace looking straight out over Ross Bay, and the Meikle Ross farmland. Watch the sunrise from your bed with the double french doors open, and hear the ebb and flow of the tide in the distance.  Listen to the birds sing, and watch the deer hop around the woodland and garden area.  Tiptoe your way through the woodland and pop out on the lane straight at the sea……where you will find the seaside to just idle your time away. (Photos to be updated!)


Kirkcudbright, known as the artists town, Castle Douglas known as the food town or Wigtown known as the book town all provide intrigue and interest for all the family.



If there is anything additional you may require or would like to know please get in touch and I will see what I can do. 

The Reteataway is located on our working family farm so remember…….location, location, location….. if you want to get away from it all……..thats our motto here at Ross Bay Retreat.  Our retreataway has all you need for a few days away to relax, unwind and recharge.  It is compact and bijoux (a bit like a diamond) with an open plan living space including a kitchen area (including microwave, 2 ring gas hob, undercounter fridge freezer, and seating area), living space with two leather Ekornes Stressless Mayfair reclining chairs and footstools in which you can relax and take in the view whilst saying to yourself “ahh… oh this is the life”.  Our double ottoman style bed with its luxuriously comfy mattress and cosy duvet to snuggle up and live the lifestyle of a retreataway.  The en-suite bathroom has a flushing wc, sink within a vanity unit, and a full size shower, all kept as toasty as you like with its underfloor heating.

The southwest facing sun terrace provides a lovey al fresco dining space with table, chairs and BBQ for two……what more could you need?


Well behaved dogs are welcome , (usually max 2 but please do contact us)  along with their own bedding, leads and towels for drying dirty sandy/muddy paws after having fun!

From the A75 go into Kirkcudbright on the A711. In Kirkcudbright turn right onto Bridge Street (opposite the Church) and towards the A755, crossing over the estuary. In half a mile or so there is a sign for the B727 to Borgue turn left here and follow the coastal road for approximately 3.5 miles. There is a sign for Ross Bay and Brighouse Bay (turn left) and in approximately ½ mile the road forks and Ross Bay is signposted to the left. Follow the lane (approx. 1 ¼ miles) and just before reach the sea you will see a white gate post with a sig “ROSS” on it, just park on the main house driveway and you will see the Retreataway nestled in the trees.
