The property

Haven Cottage is a charming two storey terraced house, resting within the Artists’ Town of Kirkcudbright and is perfectly located for exploring the breathtaking countryside and coastal scenery.

Spend time in the welcoming sitting room beside the gas stove reading or watching a film on the Smart TV, while the adjoining contemporary kitchen/dining room offers the opportunity to cook, relax and chat in a semi open-plan sociable space.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook up delicious dishes, ready to enjoy with your loved ones at the dining table for four over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

The kitchen also provides access to a convenient bike storage porch and the rear garden.

A raised seating area is accessible via a flight of steps offering an ideal spot to sit and relax.

Upstairs are two tastefully decorated bedrooms and a stylish shower room with heated towel rail.

The bedrooms can accommodate up to four guests one offering a king size bed and the other a double.

Kirkcudbright is a busy and bustling harbour town with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries and events taking place throughout the year.

These include historic tours of the town, Scottish nights with dancing and pipe bands, an Arts and Crafts Trail, Food Festival, Car Rally and the Floodlit Tattoo.

For the more energetic, there are some excellent walking and cycling routes on the doorstep and the town also has a swimming pool and golf course.

Alternatively enjoy a day at the beach or explore The Galloway Hills and Forest Park, where you can spot the local wildlife and enjoy the superb views.

Further afield you can visit the bustling town of Dumfries, home to the Dumfries Museum, Robert Burns House, the Robert Burns Centre, and the Michelin Star restaurant 1610.

All this and more awaits with a stay at Haven Cottage.

About the location


Dumfries 25 miles.

The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the River Dee on the north Solway coast. Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455 this small port town has always been supported by a busy fishing trade and is home to a blue flag marina. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel-coloured houses, a mix of Georgian and Victorian town houses make for a very attractive town centre. Particular places of interest are the Tolbooth Museum, Broughton House and Gardens (National Trust for Scotland), the Stewartry Museum, MacLellan's Castle, and the newly refurbished town Art Gallery. Kirkcudbright is also known as the 'Artists' Town'. From the 1870s onwards the town has both produced and attracted a wide range of talented artists and crafts people, and there is a fine collection of art galleries and arts and crafts shops. If you want your holiday to include some breaks from cooking you will find plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, including the historic Selkirk Arms Hotel, and, near the harbour, Throughout the summer the town organises a wide range of activities including the four day Arts and Crafts Trail, four-day Jazz Festival, a weekly Scottish night with pipe band and dancing (especially for children), weekly town tours, farmers markets, a vintage car rally... the list is endless. Visitors can also use the town's swimming pool, bowling club, golf club and tennis courts. Further afield there is the Galloway Activity Centre on beautiful Loch Ken, which offers a range of water sports, or perhaps best of all are the opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, or just driving along the coasts and in the hills and valleys in some of Scotland's loveliest unspoilt scenery.
