Twynholm has lots to offer. Its most famous son is celebrated in the David Coulthard Museum, which has lots of Formula 1 racing memorabilia as well as the Pit Stop Diner. Just a short walk away on the outskirts of the village is the popular Cocoa Bean Factory, which produces hand-crafted chocolates and offers workshops for children and adults. There is a village shop with a cafe, a garage and petrol station, and two hotels, which serve bar meals.

Twynholm is ideally placed for exploring the area. The artists' town of Kirkcudbright with its wealth of galleries, coffee shops, hotels and craft outlets is only a few kilometres away – take a wonderful stroll along the banks of the Rivers Tarff and Dee to get there. The food town of Castle Douglas is 12 kilometres away and the lovely town of Gatehouse of Fleet is only 8 kilometres away; at the Cream o' Galloway Visitor Centre, home of the award-winning ice cream, you can indulge in a wide range of ice creams and frozen yoghurts and find out how they're made; children can burn off energy in the exciting actvity centre. Around the area there are countless opportunities for cycling, walking, horse riding, golfing, fishing and wildlife-watching as well as an impressive choice of sandy, stony or rocky bays with their abundant wildlife and plants. The Galloway Forest has been designated the first Dark Sky Park in the UK; you need to head north for only a short distance to experience real darkness and the wonder of a starlit sky. The Forestry Commission provides information and organizes events throughout the year.
