About the property

Situated in the quintessentially Scottish town of Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway is this charming semi-detached cottage, 2 Burnside Place.

Providing a wonderful base for a couples' getaway, the cottage provides all the home comforts for a relaxing, or an adventure-packed holiday to Scotland.

On arrival at the property, nearby roadside parking invites you to leave the car and continue your holiday on foot.

Make your way into your home-from-home for the trip; the open-plan space blends a contemporary layout with a classically finished cottage home to a kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Utilise the electric oven and gas hob to prepare a tasty home-cooked meal for your loved one, before sitting down at the table to enjoy your meal while you plan your next day of excursions.

When it is time to relax, sink into the sofas and snuggle up to watch a film on the Smart TV, while the electric fire warms the space around you.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to the king-size bedroom for some well-earned rest ahead of another busy day.

Completing the property is an en-suite shower room where you can freshen up in the walk-in shower.

The beautiful town of Kirkcudbright is home to a quaint selection of pubs and restaurants so you can give yourself a break from cooking in the evenings, along with a handful of fascinating attractions including the Stewartry Museum which offers a historical insight into Galloway.

Immerse yourself into the town's artsy culture with a visit to The Whitehouse Gallery, or for a peaceful day out, walk along the riverside, make your way to Broughton House & Garden to explore the manicured grounds, and enjoy a picnic while admiring the pretty foliage and flora.

If science and space is where your interests lie, be sure to visit Dark Space Planetarium for a special and interactive experience in the state-of-the-art exhibition.

Just a short car journey away is the dramatic Cardoness Castle, where you can discover the dramatic 15th century tower, or perhaps a round of golf is more your style, which can be enjoyed at the nearby Gatehouse Golf Course.

Scotland, being known for its magnificent castles and lochs, will not leave you short of walking and cycling routes while in the area, passing some of the moody yet picturesque landscapes; branching slightly further afield is the famous Threave Castle and nearby Threave Garden, which boast diverse plant life and wildlife, with some unbeatable landscapes to admire even while en route.

2 Burnside Place is a fantastic base for a memorable break in a stunning 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 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.
