  • "On first impression, the property was smaller than we expected, but it was very well put together and offered us all we needed; very easy to look after and comfortable."

    In particular, the bed in the main bedroom was extremely comfortable. A lovely, quiet location but ideal for touring the region. Last but not least, the owner was very helpful. Our stay was a short one but we would have liked to stay longer.

    Thank you very much for the lovely review Joyce. It was lovely to meet you both and we would love to host you again. All the best, Iain and Jackie. Property Owner

  • "We could not believe how clean this cottage was honestly."

    Ian could not do enough for us. We had a dishwasher, washing machine, iron and ironing board, hairdryer and beautiful fluffy white tewels, hot showers and hot water on tap. Surrounding were beautiful, neighbours so friendly. We honestly could not have asked for more. Our week passed so quickly and wanted to stay longer but unfortunately commitments were pressing and knowing the amenities of this holiday place would be booked up anyway. We will remember this holiday for a long,long time. We would love to return one day. Many, many thanks. Seeing is believing.

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.
