A visit to the red kite feeding centre is also a good attraction feeding happens a 2pm most days. The property is in a good state of repair, the kitchen size is good for preparing large catering like over christmas or having a family dinner and plenty of space for breakfasts. It is a very comfortable property to stay in and is of a comfortable standard, I wouldn't put it in the top range as there are certain points that let it down the fire place in the front room has a fire place but no fire (just candles in it) so don't expect to be sitting round an open fire in the evenings, the heating was set to quite low temperatures for winter so boosting was essential, good standard but no frills. I would recommend staying here as a base for the town and the area as it is excellent standard but basic.

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.

Refurbished and decorated to a high standard, the property boasts a bespoke country kitchen with marble worktops and beautifully designed bedrooms, two with king-size beds.

There is also a small south-facing conservatory with a dining table and chairs, and access to the patio garden.

A short stroll takes you to the pretty harbour with its selection of shops, cafes and pubs, while quiet country roads for walking or cycling are on your doorstep.

With golf, fishing and horse riding, there is something for everyone in this lovely area.

About the location

KIRKCUDBRIGHT

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. .

Note: Property suitable for a maximum of 7 people (plus one infant or child under 12).
