  • "A really comfortable cottage in a very quiet village."

    A good place to relax.

  • "A fantastic location for a week's break exploring Dumfries and Galloway."

    Very comfortable accommodation in which, everything worked. Good WiFi, smartTV, cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, and well equipped kitchen. Right I'm the centre of Gatehiuse of Fleet, minutes walk from supermarket, shops, cafes, Mill, pubs and restaurants. Once inside, very quiet and comfortable location No allocated parking spot or garden, but even over a busy Easter weekend, we never had a problem parking on the street and there is a free car park opposite. There are parks and woodlands literally on the doorstep, so we did not miss a garden at all. Fantastic longer walks from from front door, so you needn't use the car at all if you don't want to go further afield. Very warm welcome and easy communication with the owner. Definitely recommended.

  • "The property was very well equipped and very comfortable."

    The owners were very kind and helpful and any problems we had were dealt with very promptly and efficiently and they made it clear that we could contact them anytime if there were any further issues. We very much appreciated the welcome bottle of wine and biscuits on our arrival. Very well equipped cottage and everything has been thought about for a comfortable and relaxing stay.. No complaints but only one bit of advice would be to have easy instructions on view for working the television, heating and cooker..

  • "We were met by the owner who was helpful & showed us round."

    The accommodation was comfortable and warm. We were surprised that we were not allowed to pull up outside the cottage to unload. This had to be done from the nearby road. We never had any problems parking nearby and there is also a car park close by but this is not really suitable for loading/unloading as it is across the road through the town. This is not something the owner can change as the yard belongs to someone else.

  • "We got a lovely welcome from the owner of the cottage, she could not have been more helpful."

    She provided us with basic provisions together with a bottle of wine and biscuits. The property was clean and comfortable and was the most well equipped cottage that we have stayed in. Gatehouse of Fleet is a charming and friendly village and a good base to visit the many things to do and see in the surrounding area.

  • "Our host greeted us on the Main Street to show us our exact location and explained all about the property and the additional steps taken for our security in the current pandemic situation."

    The flat is ideally situated in the heart of Gatehouse of Fleet, equidistant from the two pubs and restaurants and adjacent to a coffee shop and local supermarket. Very warm and comfortable, great facilities and very well supplied with hand gels and cleaning materials. A welcome gift of wine, milk and delicious shortbreads to go with the tea and coffee she had kindly supplied was most appreciated. It was ideal for us, a retired couple.

  • "Very nice accommodation that is ideally situated within the town."

    To be fair it is a great place to base yourself for exploring the beautiful countryside nearby. The cafe across the road does the best bacon rolls ever. Best of all about the Brewery location is that some of the most lovely walks are a stones throw away really enjoyed the walks we had with the dogs.

    The cottage had everything we needed and we were provided with fresh milk, shortbread and wine on arrival. This place is spotlessly clean and the furnishings are so comfortable particularly the queen size bed. The owner is so friendly and available at all times if needed. We will certainly return to this little peaceful haven in the charming Gatehouse of Fleet.

  • "Holiday home lovely, clean and well equipt."

    It's just neighbouring tradesmen wake you up every weekday morning at 740am, opening adjacent big gates on rollers, very noisy and isn't great for a relaxing holiday.

  • "There is a garage next to the cottage which opens at 8."

    As the bedroom was on the ground floor it was a bit of a rude awakening. The cottage itself was lovely and clean and the owner had even left a bottle of wine and shortbread for our arrival which was a lovely touch.

  • "This is an excellent holiday cottage which is really well equipped."

    It works really well for a couple or small family. It has excellent storage and has been really well thought out. The sofa bed in the lounge is very comfortable and easy to use. The owner had left lots of nice touches like wine, shortbread and fresh flowers. The owner is nearby and provides a lovely welcome and has lots of useful local information. The house is very central. Directly across the road is a lovely café and shop behind which is the local spar. Although no garden there is green space at the river, woodland walks and the local park are only a couple of minutes walk away. If you are here with kids then the Cream of Galloway outdoor play centre, Laggan Outdoor Centre and a range of pretty beaches are all within a short drive. We had a brilliant week and would definitely book again.

    The owner was there to greet us when we arrived to show us round the property and explain things - it was also very nice and thoughtful to find milk and a bottle of wine waiting for us.

About the location


Kirkcudbright 8 miles; Newton Stewart 15 miles; Castle Douglas 15 miles.

Peaceful in its pastel colours, the small country town of Gatehouse of Fleet lies on the Solway Firth, in the midst of Dumfries & Galloway countryside, with good sandy beaches a five-minute drive away. The town was founded in the 1760s as a mill community, and today the nearby Mill on the Fleet - a visitor centre in a former bobbin mill - tells the tale of Gatehouse’s cotton-spinning days. Today, there are several shops in the town including a small supermarket, chemist, bank and Post Office, along with two book/gift shops, a kilt-making centre and two cafes. All four pubs in the town have restaurant facilities and welcome children. Castle Douglas, a 15-minute drive away, offers an extensive range of shops, Threave Gardens and boating on Carlingwark Loch.
