The Hay Barn

(hostel, sleeps 6)

Due to Corona Virus we are opening the Haybarn to single households only for a minimum of 2 nights and we are ensuring a 3 day break between guests.

Run as an independent hostel, an ideal place for walkers, shy campers, cyclists doing the 7stanes or route 7, family friendly groups and for those wanting a comfortable base to enjoy this lovely part of southern Scotland. Wonderful for artists, bird-watchers, photographers, and dark sky enthusiasts.

Castle Creavie Hay Barn is a unique conversion of a traditional Galloway barn into a hostel-style holiday cottage. Highly insulated and with oak floors, the hugely spacious open plan design provides simple, self catering accommodation for up to six people with comfortable beds, a dining/sitting area, wood burning stove, separate kitchen with basic cooking facilities and WC/washroom.

Prices are per person per night throughout the year - all bed linen included – but please bring your own towels.

Also included: 

  • Hot showers
  • Washing and drying facilities (by arrangement)
  • Bike wash and safe store
  • Farmhouse cooked breakfast can be provided (pre-booking essential).
  • A two-course evening meal can also be provided (pre-booking essential).

Guests are asked to arrive from 4 pm on day of arrival and to leave by 10 am on the day of departure.

Here's what some of our guests had to say about their stay in the Hay Barn:

An amazing place, amid scenery that's (almost) to die for. If you are smitten by scenic grandeur, wildlife, peace and quiet, don't look anywhere else. This is the place to be.
