    About this property

    Enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside, a short 10-minute walk to the sea from this period, Victorian, detached holiday cottage.

    Horsepark Cottage is a delightful Galloway cottage, located only a short walk from Sandgreen and Carrick beaches in this beautiful corner of South West Scotland. The wood-burning stove in the spacious living room and the conservatory overlooking the garden are particularly attractive features of this holiday cottage. Whilst in a delightful rural location, the property is only 3 miles from the charming town of Gatehouse of Fleet, offering a wide range for places to eat and relax. There are many attractions in and around the town including the mill at the Fleet Visitor Centre, Cardoness Castle, and the popular Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre which is host to one of Europe’s longest zip wires. The area has numerous walks available, from scenic coastal walks to forest trails. With sailing, swimming, riding, fishing, golf, boat trips and water sports are close by, there is sure to be something for everyone. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, there are many beautiful gardens to visit, including Threave Gardens (NT). Close to the Galloway Forest Park and central to 5 of the 7Stanes, it is a popular location for cyclists and mountain bikers. Only a short drive away, Kirkcudbright, known as ’the artists’ town’, attracts visitors throughout the year drawn by the harbour, the historic high street and the diverse range of annual events and visitor attractions. The popular programme of summer festivities culminates with the spectacular Tattoo, an event not to be missed. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "Had to purchase four bags of logs to keep warm in the evening. There is no control for the heating and the bedroom felt damp on our arrival.The bedroom radiator didn't come on at all during the week we were there.Not good on chilly autumn mornings."

    "Needs some basic updates. On first look the cottage appeared cosy with plenty of kitchen equipment and nice clean fresh bedding. However the kitchen sink with a wooden surround had wasted away and the wood was black and brittle. The sink in the ensuite was a poor design. The sink surround was constantly wet and the two toothbrushes cups were dirty and covered in old toothpaste.It was frustrating that all the heating and the cooker! we’re on timers so we could not adjust the temperature of the cottage. There were boosters outside both bathrooms which did heat the towel rails. The only other heating was a wood burning stove. This was great and cosy, but we had to drive to Castle Douglas for wood every other day.The conservatory was lovely but it didn’t have any lights in it so we could only use in daylight hours. The garden badly needs some attention. It was such a lovely garden but was overgrown with weeds, wild flowers and high grass. It had a seating area but just wasn’t nice to sit outside."

    "Absolutely loved it! what a beautiful place, so comfy, clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped. The birds were so lovely to watch on the feeders, if you fill the feeders up you will be rewarded!. The bulls in the surrounding fields were so comical with their noisy interactions, there were lots of interesting places to visit within a short distance, and lots of lovely walks to the beach.The stars in the sky at night were breathtaking! Overall a wonderful stay and we all fell in love with Scotland! :)"

    "We loved staying at this wonderful cottage. The setting is lovely - especially the short walk to Fleet Bay. Can't recommend it high enough."

    "A quiet location down a country lane. Lovely scenery and about 15 minutes walk to a beach (not sandy) but quite a way from shops and other facilities. Comfortable spacious accommodation on ground floor including ensuite double bedroom but 2 bedrooms upstairs are in the roof and have low ceilings. Electric radiators keep all but bathrooms warm. Bathroom and ensuite are clean and spacious but the tiled floor was a bit cold and the heating in these rooms had to be switched on when needed - not ideal for cold mornings. This wasn't such a problem as to stop us going again though - we loved the solitude, quiet location and surrounding countryside views."

    "Absolutely beautiful cottage, we had a wonderful Christmas here, it is very tastefully decorated, yet cosy and homely at the same time. Thanks ever so much.We will return in the future."
