Story Cottage is a charming mid-terrace cottage resting in Scotland’s National Book Town, Wigtown.
Sleeping two guests over two floors, Story Cottage is a bright and romantic setting for your getaway to Dumfries and Galloway, within easy reach of Galloway Forest Park.
You enter the property into a porch, which is great for leaving your shoes and coats, before stepping into the open-plan living space where you can cuddle up on the sofa and enjoy some television, enjoy breakfast at the bar, or cook up a storm in the kitchen to impress your loved one.
Climbing upstairs, there is a bedroom with a king-size bed, storage to unpack any personal belongings and a dressing table so you can get ready for an evening out, there is also a shower room with a spacious walk-in shower to freshen up after a long day.
Outside there is a long enclosed garden with lawn and a patio area with furniture, so you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining as the sun goes down.
Story Cottage is within a short walk to the shop for any essentials, as well as a post office and a range of bars and eateries for when you don't feel like cooking.
There are plenty of attractions and points of interest to visit too, including the historic Martyr's Stake Monument and Wigtown Bird Hide nature reserve for birdwatching, as well as being surrounded by the 20 book-related businesses which make up the excitement of the national book town.
Take a walk or a quick drive into Bladnoch so you can discover Scotland’s most southerly whisky distillery, or travel a little further to explore the botanical gardens at Galloway House and the Isle of Whithorn, with its historical Isle Head and pretty harbour.

Slightly further afield, but well worth the visit, the beaches near Cardoness and the fishing port of Kirkcudbright, with its delightful marina and a great choice of museums and galleries.
