The property

A charming apartment within a Georgian townhouse in Dumfries and Galloway.

A cottage situated above a kitchen boutique in the centre of Whithorn with refreshing finishing touches throughout, giving it a modern feel.

This is the perfect place for couples to return to rest after a day exploring the local area.

It is furnished beautifully with attractive fixtures and coastal colours whilst still allowing the traditional aspects to come through.

The cosy bedroom rests up in the apex roof which boasts a beautiful Velux window which you can open up in the warmer months to let in a gentle summer breeze.

Adding to the historical allure of the property and coinciding with the history of the town, there are traditional markings featured on the roof of this room dating back to when it was built, a unique quality about the cottage.

If you want some privacy outside and a little spot to soak up the sun, there is a delightful decked area to the rear with a shared garden area.

Look down from the open-plan kitchen/diner over onto the enchanting gardens featuring an abundance of plants and flowers and a little stream under a bridge.

Just down the street from the cottage are a few shops, cafes and directly opposite is a visitors centre, should you wish to collate ideas together for a fun-filled day out.

There is also the local priory for those wanting to discover the history of the town and not to far away is a little fishing village.

Attractions close by include; Logan Botanic Gardens, the Aldouran Wetland and the spectacular gardens of Castle Kennedy.

You also have the choice of many walking routes, mountain biking and wildlife spotting.

A superb apartment; ideal for couples wanting to relax and explore the Machars Peninsula.

About the location


Castlewigg 2 miles; Wigtown 10.5 miles; Newton Stewart 17 miles.

The former Royal Burgh of Whithorn on the Machars Peninsula in Dumfries and Galloway is renowned for having the first recorded Christian church is Scotland. Built by St Ninian around 397, the site of the Candida Casa, or White/Shining House, is now home to the parish church. The area of Whithorn is rich in history and is also home to a medieval priory and an archaeological site. The distinctive shape of Whithorn, with its spacious central area and narrow entrance-ways of elegant Georgian houses, displays its medieval heritage. The Machars and Rhins of Galloway are also home to spectacular gardens, a result of the Gulf Stream and mild climate. Logan Botanic Gardens, the Aldouran Wetland and the spectacular gardens of Castle Kennedy are all a must see. To the north of the Machars are the Galloway Hills, offering walking to all levels as well as world class mountain biking. Golf, fishing and wildlife spotting are well catered for and the sandy beaches of Monrieth, Garleston, and along the whole of Luce Bay will delight any visitor.
