Welcome to Nether Barr Steading
A fine stone built courtyard steading converted into six self-catering Cottages.
Nether Barr Steading is a fine stone built courtyard steading converted into six self-catering Cottages. Set in 15 acres of farmland elevated above the River Cree, the Nether Barr Steading enjoys magnificent views towards the Galloway Hills.
The cottages provide a "home from home" comfort and are situated off the courtyard which dates back to the 1800's when the steading was originally a farm owned by the Earl of Galloway.
Nestled in a peaceful area in and yet within walking distance or a short drive from Newton Stewart for shopping and the gateway to the Galloway Forest Park, there is plenty to Dumfries & Galloway. This is an ideal spot for mountain biking, we are close to Kirroughtree and Glentrool, part of the 7 stanes. We can offer short breaks all year round.
So much to see and do

We look forward to welcoming you

What our guests say
"Stayed here last week for 7 nights and it was just what we were looking for. Carol was extremely helpful from the first point of contact until the day we left. Cottage was very clean and comfortable. Excellent accommodation.
Would definitely visit again, great value for money, really enjoy our stay"
"Very comfortable accommodation in a peaceful location. The accommodation is based in a courtyard setting which turned out to be a real sun trap the week we were there. I was quite happy to spend a couple of days taking in the sun before we got in the car to explore the area. Cycle/walking path brings you on a one mile walk into the town alongside the river. Town has a lovely Sainsbury's, Aldi and Co-Op. Plenty to see and do for the week, and inexpensive compared to others we've looked at."
"A large, inexpensive, comfortable place to stay just outside Newton Stewart. Convenient by car to the nearby national forest for hiking. Large comfortable beds, beautiful views, a full kitchen, wi-fi. Find your own breakfast, but this is much preferable to a small room above a pub"
