Within the available space of the chalet, we decided to make the living area as big as possible, so the bedrooms are quite small. We have aimed our chalet at families looking for a base to explore the Galloway countryside and have furnished, not in a luxurious style, but in a way, which we feel is suitable for a comfortable family holiday. The living/dining area (approx 18’x18′) has a comfortable settee and chairs, with pine dining table and chairs.
The kitchen, divided from the living room by a worktop, is small but well equipped with units, fridge, electric cooker, washer, microwave oven and all the crockery etc. necessary for your stay. Maps, tourist information books, jigsaws and a few games are also part of the furnishings, as well as a TV.
There are three bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with bunk beds and one with twin beds. The settee can also be pulled out to form a wide single/narrow double bed
The bathroom is also small but has the three essential parts, plus an electric shower.
Heating is provided by a wood/coal-burning stove, which gives off a good heat and is easy to use following the instruction book. Wood is easily collected from the beach and there are various coal merchants in Dumfries. There are also some electric heaters.
Since putting the stove in we have found it has made a tremendous difference to the comfort of people living in the chalet at early and late season. The stove has a fireguard in permanent position and it is the responsibility of the occupier to see that the gate is kept closed when children are about.
