    We stayed in this lovely cottage with our small dog. The owners have the hotel in the village and were really friendly and helpful if we needed any help or advice. The cottage was so well equipped - everything you could have needed in the kitchen. Only negative was the under the counter fridge - I thought a 3 bed accommodation would have a full size fridge freezer - not to worry we coped but glad I hadn't done a full shop. We had lovely weather and made the most of the beautiful, secure garden. Our dog loved the wild flowers and spent most of her time mooching around. I sunbathed on the grass and we enjoyed a drink as the sun set on the garden furniture at the top of the garden. Once the sun had set - we moved down near the back door. The owners have provided a bistro table and chairs and chimenea - amazing! We didn't spent much time in the lounge but found the sofa a little uncomfortable. I think a nice large corner sofa would be beneficial. This room had a log burner in it but it was too warm to use it. Also, the TV was large but old so had no USB port - not an issue as we had brought an HDMI cable to attach our laptop. All 3 bedrooms were beautifully decorated and had nice new beds and lovely white bedding. There was room to park in front of the cottage but we put our big car in the parking place near outbuilding. The cottage is in an amazing location - only a few miles from a few beautiful beaches. We really enjoyed our stayed and would return.

About the location

BORGUE

Kirkcudbright 5 miles; Dumfries 32 miles.

The quaint hamlet of Borgue has a pub and is situated five miles south west of Kirkcudbright. The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the tidal waters of the River Dee, on the north Solway shore. Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455, giving it status to trade with ports outside Scotland, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel coloured houses, a mix of Georgian villas and Victorian townhouses, make for a very attractive town centre, complete with the ruined McLellan's Castle. Also worth a visit is the interesting Stewartry Museum, housing a collection of assorted items representing the life and times on the Solway coast. Kirkcudbright is also known as the artists' town, established by Edward Hornel in the late nineteenth century and still the case today, with a fine collection of art galleries, crafts, cafés and antique shops. The area offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with attractive coastal landscapes and plenty to offer the whole family.
