  • "Lots to like here: friendly, helpful owner, good parking space, good outside seating, nice plants."

    Comfy living room, plenty useful side tables, no fiddly ornaments! Good TV. Kitchen one of the best-equipped we've been in, good sized quality pans & large choice of serving dishes of various sizes (not often the case in holiday properties). Good shower.

    Comfy living room, plenty useful side tables, no fiddly ornaments! Good TV. Kitchen one of the best-equipped we've been in, good sized quality pans & large choice of serving dishes of various sizes (not often the case in holiday properties). Good shower. Only 2 minuses: nice shower curtain but FAR too long, trailed in the bath and I found the lovely chopping board to awkward to manipulate: it was heavy but with no "finger-holes" to lift it . My only reason for not giving top rating in all 4 categories was that we had expected the bathroom to be upstairs, with the bedrooms (I should have checked); perhaps that could be made clearer in the description?

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.
