    About this property

    Explore the history and countryside of the beautiful Rhinns of Galloway, with castles, lochs, seals and minke whales all to be found.
    This spacious detached cottage makes a peaceful rural retreat with a river running through the grounds, and is surrounded by open countryside. The cottage has a multi-fuel burner to keep you warm on chilly evenings and for summer days there is a garden to sit out in and enjoy the sunshine. The cottage is located only 8 miles from the bustling harbour town of Stranraer situated at the head of Loch Ryan. This is the gateway to the Rhinns of Galloway, and for more than a century was a busy ferry port for transport between south-west Scotland and Northern Ireland. The town’s main attraction is the Castle of St John, a ruined four-story tower house built around 1500, which sits in the main street. Stranraer Museum can be found in the old town hall and is worth paying a visit.
    Close by are Castle Kennedy Gardens, with the castle, two lochs, a giant lily pond and an avenue of monkey puzzle trees to enjoy. Logan Botanic Garden sits 13 miles south of the town and is home to exotic ferns and palms and a boasts a beautiful walled garden. This region is steeped in history and the diverse landscape is a haven for artists, birdwatchers and walkers. Portpatrick, 8 miles, lies at the start of the Southern Upland Way one of Scotland’s celebrated long distance footpaths; it covers 212 miles to Cockburnspath on the east coast. The Mull of Galloway with its grass topped visitor centre is Scotland’s most southerly point, and it has wonderful views towards Ireland, England, Isle of Man and Scotland! If you are lucky you may spot seals and minke whales, and will most certainly see a host of sea birds. For an alternative day out, why not take the high speed ferry to Ireland for a spot of sightseeing or a shopping trip to Belfast. Beach 5 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 8 miles.

    "Disappointed that on arrival the outside dustbin was full with waste that was not all bagged. No “welcome” pack provided.Electrical fault (outside pump) repeatedly tripping power, this had been reported by previous occupants in the note book.The above spoilt an otherwise great trip."
    Derek ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "We had a great week at S83813. There was no mobile reception which had been stated but the wi fi was excellent so it was not a problem. A lovely cosy remote cottage with everything we needed. What more could you ask for we will definitely return."

    "Lovely cottage,however found the lounge leather chesterfield very uncomfortable as the settees were so hard they gave us a bad back.Otherwise everything was fine."
    Susan ‐ 28 Aug 2018
    "A lovely well equipped cottage in fantastic rural location great if you want to switch off for a while. Getting to town for shopping was easy the only downside was we had 2 teenagers with us and apart from the leisure centre in the town there wasn't much else for them to do. For adults and younger children there are endless walks along fantastic beaches and the cottage has everything you need for little ones. I wish we had found this when our girls were little. Will deffinatly book again thank you."

    "We had a lovely family holiday with our two dogs. The cottage was well equipped and very private. We enjoyed seeing deer and watching a barn owl gliding past the living room window every evening."

    "Comfortable and well equipped cottage, beautiful scenery, very quiet and peaceful,we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend."

    "Lovely little property in the middle of nowhere. There's plenty of of toys for a young child which was great.Obvious it was recently renovated and done to a nice standard.Only real down side was there's not enough seating in the lounge for your whole group if you fill the property.Would stay again!"

    "We arrived for a 3 day break and was initially very impressed with the cottage. There was 6 of us. Kitchen facilities were great. Access to property was good, but because it rained quite heavily, the bottom part of the garden flooded which caused us a few issues with the cars getting stuck. Be aware that there is only one bathroom which has the single toilet, bath and shower so it can be a little inconvenient in the morning. A place of this size should have at least 2 separate toilet/bath/shower rooms. This was our only gripe. The location is great and quite isolated, which is what we wanted. There is no mobile coverage and although there is WiFi, its pretty slow and with more than 2 people on the WiFi, makes it pretty unusable - However it was great to have a digital detox for a few days."
