    The cottage was lovely, central location, everything you need was provided, lost a point for comfort because the bed was awful, very uncomfortable,

    The cottage was lovely, central location, everything you need was provided, lost a point for comfort because the bed was awful, very uncomfortable, The cottage was 2 min walk to shop, there is a couple of pubs in village that serve meals, there is a park opposite the cottage with woodland walks, I would definitely book this, cottage again if the bed was changed,

The property

A delightful, mid-terrace cottage situated on the main street through the small town of Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries and Galloway.

Nestling between the coast and the splendour of the Galloway Hills, it’s ideally located for a holiday in this beautiful part of Scotland.

Step into the entrance hall, which then leads off into a comfortable sitting room, an ideal place to relax with loved ones.

From the sitting room, there are three steps down into the kitchen, and you will find two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

The back door from the kitchen opens onto a small decked area with steps leading down to a lawned garden, where a morning coffee can be enjoyed before setting off and exploring this wonderful area.

Gatehouse of Fleet is an attractive town with much to offer the visitor, including four pubs, a selection of shops and a Post Office.

Explore the rich history of the area at the restored Mill on the Fleet visitor centre, Carsluith Castle or the Neolithic burial sites at Cairnholy.

Enjoy the outdoor life with the abundance of walking and cycling in the area and in the nearby Galloway Hills Forest Park, or relax on one of the many excellent beaches that can be found on the River Fleet estuary.

This lovely cottage is a perfect base for a couple or small family.

About the location

GATEHOUSE OF FLEET

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.
