  • "Loved our stay in The Townhouse which was situated in the middle of the town."

    A comfortable home from home. David the owner provided us with really comprehensive details of facilities in the town and surrounding area which was very helpful. The farmers market was superb on the Sunday and would recommended a trip to it. Would definitely go back to explore more of the area.

  • "We had a great stay."

    The Townhouse is ideally situated in the centre of town. The house was clean and well presented, with a well equipped kitchen. Even on chilly days the house was warm and cosy. Kirkcudbright itself has lots of attractions and a variety of eating places to suit all budgets. It is also a good base to use to explore Galloway.

    Wonderful location in the centre of Town as described. Had all we needed to relax and appreciate the environment, restaurants and bars and the wonderful local walks and beaches. Parking not a problem either. many thanks!

  • "Wasn’t very clean."

    It was fairly obvious from the dust that it hadn’t been properly cleaned. Property was very tired and in need of decorating. Furniture old. Windows were filthy. Very disappointed in the overall experience

  • "Loved the central location."

    Lovely house with some of its original features. The lack of outdoor space is a bit of a pity but the owners have made the most of what they have. My only complaint is small....you need more mugs!

  • "As before, everything from the Sykes end went very smoothly."

    I rang the owner's number listed to sort out the keys but my call was declined - I followed up with a text which did result in an email promising details which were then sent the next day. We got there in the end! We could have emailed directly if that had been the instruction. We were also asked by the owners to provide information about the booking which we had already given to Sykes as part of the booking process. Surely they must have had that already? Anyway the cottage is lovely - comfortable, well-equipped and spotless. I would hesitate to book it again if the weather were cooler because the huge windows make the living room cold. The heating is effective but it is not possible to alter the time settings. If the open fire in the living room was in a usable state, this wouldn't be an issue.

  • "We had a wonderful family holiday in The Townhouse."

    The Townhouse was a great base for us while exploring Kirkcudbright and the surrounding area. It had all that we needed for our stay. I would highly reccomend both The Townhouse and Sykes to anyone looking to holiday in Scotland.

  • "We stayed at Townhouse for 3 nights over Mother's Day weekend and a great time was had by all, with no faults whatsoever with our choice of accommodation The house was like home from home with all the provisions that were needed."

    It was so very clean, warm and very comfortable. We would love to go back and have the same Weekend over again. Whilst at Townhouse we sampled an evening meal at the local Selkirk Arms which we recommend, and also afternoon tea as a Mother’s Day treat at the Cally Palace In nearby Gatehouse of Fleet. Castle Douglas is also nearby and is worth a trip for lovely independent shops. Kirkcudbright itself has lovely shops, walks and scenery. We highly recommend a trip to Townhouse.

The property

A beautifully renovated Georgian townhouse dating from 1801, in the heart of the coastal artists' town of Kirkcudbright, on the north Solway shore.

The Townhouse retains much original character, and great care has been taken to enhance the wealth of architectural features including the fireplaces in the sitting room and bedroom, original polished timber floors throughout and a wide staircase with exposed beams.

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), the Stewartry Museum, McLellan's Castle, and the newly reburbished 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 art 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 Britain's loveliest unspoilt scenery. The Tourist Information Office in the Harbour Square can provide information about all these activities and events. .
