    “Lovely stay”

    Just got back from the harbour house today after a lovely weeks stay. ...

    Just got back from the harbour house today after a lovely weeks stay. The house is amazing and very big. Having the downstairs bathroom and bedroom is very handy. On arrival there was a yummy chocolate cake left out for us which went down a treat :) plus a selection of jams and tea and coffee. The only thing I felt was missing were cooking trays, oven gloves and a frying pan. The washer was an added bonus but drying the clothes took forever maybe the house would benefit from having a dryer. All in all we had a fab 1st stay here. This is a lovely well looked after house in a nice peaceful area. We will definitely book again. Thank you

The property

This delightful, terraced cottage, set beside a neat row of houses overlooking the harbour, is ideally located in the heart of the fishing village of the Isle of Whithorn.

Completely refurbished to provide quality holiday accommodation, this cottage is a wonderful choice for families or friends looking for a quiet coastal break and a chance to explore one of the most varied parts of the country.

With views across the harbour from the front of the property, there are three bedrooms, with the ground floor room having easy access, and the two upper bay windows offer stunning views of the harbour.

The sitting room looks out over the working harbour, while the kitchen and dining area face the rear garden.

From the patio area, steps lead up to the raised garden terrace, which is an ideal place to relax and unwind with a drink and take in the views across to the Lake District mountains.

The local hotel and restaurant is just yards along the harbour.

The flurry of the daily catch being loaded onto the dockside is sure to seize your attention.

This holiday home captures the essence of a traditional seaside atmosphere in a beautiful, historic area.

Enjoy walking and cycling along this attractive coastline, take a fishing trip out to sea or try one of the many golf courses that can be found within a short drive.

A superb cottage offering something for everyone.

About the location


Newton Stewart 20 miles.

The picturesque village of the Isle of Whithorn, though no longer an island, nestles around its natural harbour on the southernmost tip of the Machars Peninsula, designated as an outstanding conservation area. The village has a long history of seafaring and trade, which dates back to the Vikings. The arrival in 397 of Ninian, Scotland's first missionary and saint, is thought to be the beginning of Scotland's Christian history, and the remains of the 13th century chapel can still be seen at the end of the harbour. A short, gentle climb will take you to the distinctive white tower - the Cairn - which has been a mariner's landmark for close on two centuries. Today the harbour is popular with visiting leisure sailors and with local boats fishing for crabs, lobsters and scallops. The area is steeped in history with numerous sites ranging from Mesolithic and Iron Age forts, standing stones and 'cup and ring’ markings, an 11th century chapel and castles from the era of Robert the Bruce. Wigtown, Scotland's first book town, can be reached within a short drive, and has over a dozen book shops in which one can easily lose an hour or two! With beaches, forests, golf courses, gardens and churches to visit, this is an ideal base for discovering this corner of Scotland.
