The property

Kirkcudbright 7.2 miles.

Resting in the small village of Dundrennan, a few miles from the town of Kirkcudbright, is this delightful end of terrace property, Hillview Cottage.

Renovated to a high standard, this cottage combines the very best of a contemporary decor with period features, such as original stone flooring and an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.

Entering the property, be welcomed into a convenient hallway where you can leave your coats and boots.

Step into the sitting room which has a sofa and two chairs to choose from; cosy up with your loved ones and spend the evening unwinding in front of the TV whilst the warmth from the woodburning stove fills the room.

Opposite the sitting room is a spacious dining area, with a large dining table able to seat up to six guests, making for a wonderful social space for a family gathering.

The kitchen is wonderfully appointed to the rear of the cottage and has all the appliances needed to rustle up some delicious evening meals.

Follow the steps up to the first floor where you will find two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a king-size and bunk room, each boasting a range of furniture for storage purposes, and sharing a family bathroom.

To the rear is an enclosed lawned garden and patio area, perfect for sitting out during the summer months and dining alfresco, or simply enjoying a refreshing beverage.

While you're in the area, make sure you visit the 12th Century ruins of Dundrennan Abbey for a spot of history.

Further afield is the charming town of Kirkcudbright, home to a 19th century art museum Broughton House and Garden and The Whitehouse Gallery for a spot of culture, or visit the 16th century MacLellan's Castle remains.

This charming town has a number of traditional eateries for sampling some local Scottish cuisine, whilst their independent shops and supermarkets are ideal for picking up any last-minute essentials.

Settled near the coastline, you can join nearby trails for walking and cycling with superb views, and a choice of lovely sandy beaches for a fun-filled family afternoon outing.

About the location

KIRKCUDBRIGHT

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), the Stewartry Museum, McLellan's Castle, and the newly reburbished 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 art 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, Polar Bites, a very good fish restaurant as well as being a takeaway. 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, and the Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre which includes a zipwire - suitable for all ages ! 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 Britain's loveliest unspoilt scenery. The Tourist Information Office in the Harbour Square can provide information about all these activities and events. .
