Allanhead Cottage - Borgue, KIRKCUDBRIGHT
Holiday property description
A superbly situated and spacious traditional country cottage with panoramic views of unspoilt farmland in the foreground, the Galloway hills to the east and the Solway Firth and Wigtown Bay to the south. Awarded 3 stars by Visit Scotland, the cottage has everything needed for a comfortable stay, including natural wood fixtures and fittings, a log burning open fire, garden furniture, extensive info on the local area and conservatory complete with large windows to take full advantage of the stunning scenery.
With access via a farm road, the property offers a fantastic 'getaway from it atmosphere' without being too isolated. If you're looking to indulge a little, Gatehouse of Fleet, the Artist Town of Kirkcudbright and Food Town of Castle Douglas are less than half an hour's drive and offer an array of fantastic cafes, restaurants and shops. Or you can simply sit back and watch pheasant and hares from the comfort of the Living room sofa.
The enclosed three quarter acre garden is all that most energetic children could wish for however the Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory at nearby Tongland, with its very own indoor and outdoor play areas is always a winner. Beautiful sandy beaches can be found at Carrick and Brighouse Bay, where there is also a fantastic golf course and swimming pool. Sandgreen beach, close to where the famous Cream o' Galloway ice cream is made and sold, is also only a short drive away. Excellent fishing (both course and game) coastal walks and cycling can also be found in the local area.
A perfect property for a quiet getaway or a fun filled family holiday!

'What an amazing week. The cottage is perfect, warm, cosy and stunning. The scenery and 4 legged neighbours were wonderful. Fantastic walks in every direction. We cannot recommend The Borgue Hotel enough, phenomenal food at great prices and the owners were so welcoming. We will be back! The Pirie and Rae Families, Oct 2016

Allanhead Cottage Reviews
1 star reviewThe accommodation needed a thorough clean, the carpets hadn't been hovered, dust everywhere and many cobwebs. Windows needed cleaning and there was a part eaten biscuit in the conservatory. The fridge is wobbly and smelt awful and there was a hair in the top tray of the fridge. The toilet seat in the down stairs bathroom is loose, no vent for steam from showers up or down, and always a smell of soot in the lounge. Also there is no door to the top bedroom leaving you on show to everyone in the kitchen. Not what I would expect for the cost that I paid for. Very disappointed. I wouldn't recommend or visit again its only saving grace was the location it was brilliant the views and the quiet were wonderful - the place itself left much to be desired, its tired. The pot holes on the approach road certainly need addressing. A new cleaner is a must!Thank you for your comments about your holiday, we do understand that cleanliness is very important. We are very sorry to hear that things were not as they should have been when you arrived. All these issues will be addressed, although none were apparent during our routine review of the cottage.
If you should have similar problems in the future please do let us know as soon as possible so that steps may be taken to ensure that they are rectified for you without delay.
