  • "Lovely house, very central, spotless."

  • "We had a very comfortable week in Harts Cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break. As the weather wasn't too kind, the woodburner in the sitting room made all the difference. Very well situated to access all that Kirkcudbright has to offer. Highly recommended.

  • "We only stayed for a sort time, but could have moved in forever!"

    The cottage was warm, spotless and had everything we needed. It's clear that no expense has been spared renovating this property and it is a credit to the owners.

  • "Harts Cottage was amazing, sparkling clean, beautifully decorated and very warm."

    It had everything we needed and more to make our stay enjoyable and hassle free. The owner was so helpful and even popped by to meet us upon our arrival. Gave us so many useful info and suggestions of things to do in the area, she even had a delicious cake for us! I would highly recommend.

  • "Beautifully furnished and decorated and very very comfortable."

    Loved the log burner in the living room and the underfloor heating in the kitchen. Didn’t need to light the stove in the kitchen. I only used the double bed which was very comfortable. The whole house was spotlessly clean and I really couldn’t find anything to complain about. Plenty of information provided and places to visit although I was only there for Christmas and didn’t have time to travel round.

  • "Gorgeous cottage."

    High standard of decor and furnishings. Perfect location just around the corner from the shops, marina, pub and chippy. We had perfect weather and Kirkudbright is very handy for a number of beaches. The gorgeous home-made lemon drizzle cake and bottle of wine were very welcome. The only reason I didn’t give top marks for everything was the lack of curtains in the bedroom (just blinds) so we were woken by the light very early in the morning. Apart from that it was the perfect stay.

    Recently refurbished, everything felt brand new. Lots of space, light and airy. Kitchen was well equipped, everything you need for making meals. Well located, 5 minutes walk to the centre of town, plenty of parking available.

  • "Harts Cottage was perfect for our requirements."

    It is a traditional cottage refurbished to a very high standard. It has a central location in a relatively quiet street, a short walk from the harbour and the shops.

Carry the conversation into the sitting room, offering a welcoming feel with a woodburning stove, where you can flick through the Smart TV in search of a favourite film, or simply kick back and reflect on the holiday so far.

Accessed via a narrow lane, the property benefits from a tranquil garden which is separate from the house, offering a lovely space for a family barbecue and alfresco dining.

Be sure to explore the charm of Kirkcudbright; meander the charming streets lined with Georgian and Victorian buildings, including Broughton House, a smart Georgian townhouse which was once the home of the artist Edward Hornel, now showcasing collections of art, ceramics, furniture and literature.

About the location


Dumfries 25 miles.

The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the River Dee on the north Solway coast. Established as a Royal Burgh in 1455 this small port town has always been supported by a busy fishing trade and is home to a blue flag marina. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel-coloured houses, a mix of Georgian and Victorian town houses make for a very attractive town centre. Particular places of interest are the Tolbooth Museum, Broughton House and Gardens (National Trust for Scotland), the Stewartry Museum, MacLellan's Castle, and the newly refurbished town Art Gallery. Kirkcudbright is also known as the 'Artists' Town'. From the 1870s onwards the town has both produced and attracted a wide range of talented artists and crafts people, and there is a fine collection of art galleries and arts and crafts shops. If you want your holiday to include some breaks from cooking you will find plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, including the historic Selkirk Arms Hotel, and, near the harbour, Polar Bites, a very good fish restaurant as well as being a takeaway. Throughout the summer the town organises a wide range of activities including the four day Arts and Crafts Trail, four-day Jazz Festival, a weekly Scottish night with pipe band and dancing (especially for children), weekly town tours, farmers markets, a vintage car rally... the list is endless. Visitors can also use the town's swimming pool, bowling club, golf club and tennis courts. Further afield there is the Galloway Activity Centre on beautiful Loch Ken, which offers a range of water sports, and the Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre which includes a zipwire - suitable for all ages! Perhaps best of all are the opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, or just driving along the coasts and in the hills and valleys in some of Scotland's loveliest unspoilt scenery.
