  • “Perfect Getaway”

    We had a lovely three-night stay in Laurel Bank. We had originally booked for March, but the day we were meant to set off was during the worst of the snow the UK saw this year! We couldn’t make the 6 hour trip from Hertfordshire through red weather warnings, but Sam was very understanding and allowed us to cancel at short notice and rebook at our next convenience with only a small cleaning fee to pay. We were so grateful, it would have been so disappointing otherwise. ...

    We had a lovely three-night stay in Laurel Bank. We had originally booked for March, but the day we were meant to set off was during the worst of the snow the UK saw this year! We couldn’t make the 6 hour trip from Hertfordshire through red weather warnings, but Sam was very understanding and allowed us to cancel at short notice and rebook at our next convenience with only a small cleaning fee to pay. We were so grateful, it would have been so disappointing otherwise. The cottage is a great size with two bedrooms, induction cooker, power shower, WiFi, Freeview and all the other amenities you could need. Someone mentioned on here that they didn’t like the way the kitchen came off the end of the hallway but we found it nice and open. Everything was clean and the heating and hot water worked fine. We were really content. We walked along the coast at Mossyard, which was 10 mins drive away. We also had two lovely long walks in Galloway Forest Park, the better being from the Newton Stewart entrance. Gatehouse of Fleet itself is quiet and unassuming. We found it to be a great base to see the Scottish coast. Thank you so much Sam, we really enjoyed our stay. Steph & Simon

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.

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.
