Dog friendly holiday accommodation

Dog friendly holiday accommodation in Wigtown, South West Scotland

Sleeping up to 6 in 3 bedrooms, Couthie Brae is great for families but also comfortable and cosy for a single traveller or couple looking for self catering in Scotland.

Couthie Brae is a great place to relax, close to local amenities in Wigtown but set in its own large, quite wild garden, with space to wind down and play.

We welcome up to two well-behaved dogs and have made the house and garden as dog-friendly as possible.

holiday accommodation

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, coastline and picturesque harbours, Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town, is situated on the Machars peninsula in South West Scotland. It is in an ideal position for exploring the area’s beauty and history, with loads of family-friendly interest and activities close at hand including walking, cycling and day trips.

Wigtown is a small country town with a good supermarket, a cash machine, and, as its title would indicate, a good range of book shops. 

There are also several nice gift shops plus local cafes, pubs and restaurants providing a variety of options for visitors, from fine dining to the highly recommended fish and chip van which visits Wigtown on a Tuesday evening!


Our self catering kitchen is bright and modern with induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is also a Nespresso machine and a slow cooker, in addition to the usual toaster, kettle and microwave. There is a washing machine next door to the shower room in the utility area.

Free WiFi and a smart TV with Freeview are provided.

There are books, games and toys in the hall and plenty of room to store coats and shoes.

From the utility area, thee is a secure bike storage accessed both from inside the house, and also from the drive through the wooden garage doors. An outside tap and hose are supplied for muddy bikes, paws and boots!



All three bedrooms are decorated in a similar style, with very comfortable beds, light and bright furnishings and room darkening curtains for a good nights sleep.

  • Bedroom 1 has a King size bed and en-suite shower room
  • Bedroom 2 can be made up as a King size bed or two single beds
  • Bedroom 3 has a small 4′ double bed

Couthie Brae is kept warm and cosy with electric radiators, and there is a plentiful supply of hot water.

All bedding and towels are provided.


We have one full bathroom plus two shower rooms, very useful when you’ve been out all day cycling or at the beach, and no queuing in the morning either!

A Dog Friendly Holiday!

Couthie Brae has been made as dog-friendly as possible both inside and out. The back garden has been fenced off from the front garden with gates either side of the house.

We have also provided a portable barrier for the top of the front decking steps for extra safety.

One of our previous guest families wrote about their activities during their holiday at Couthie Brae. We are pleased to share this with you.

We look forward to welcoming you
