Cormorant Cottage - Borgue, Kirkcudbright
Holiday property description
Located within a short walk to the fabulous sandy beach at Brighouse Bay & Visit Scotland 4* graded:
A wonderful family holiday cottage with excellent sea views close to one of South West Scotland's outstanding beaches at Brighouse Bay. The cottage sleeps six and is equipped to an excellent Visit Scotland 4 Star Grading.
Brighouse Bay is a quiet sandy cove with superb views over the Solway to the Lake District and also the Isle of Man. It provides a safe haven for swimming and sailing while there are of course rock pools to explore as well. Other excellent beaches are also available close by at Carrick Bay and Sandgreen to provide more variety.
The local area is a superb base for cycling with quiet country roads or strenuous mountain bike trails in the Forestry Commission Woodlands, the 7Stanes routes are all close by. The coast line is well worth exploring with rugged cliff walks and open beaches whilst the Forestry Commission Woodlands and Galloway Forest Park are also close by providing excellent opportunities for watching wildlife and also, on dark nights, stargazing with the Galloway Forest Park being one of the country's first Dark Sky Parks.
The busy harbour town of Kirkcudbright is only five miles away. The town has a very active Artists community and has an annual art gallery exhibition frequently showcasing works by Monet and other well-known artists. There are local artists' studios which are open to the public and worth exploring. Within the town there are varied independent shops which are worth investigating for local produce and crafts. Slightly further away, Castle Douglas also provides an interesting town to discover and both Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright have good hotels, restaurants and pubs for eating out.
For rainy days the nearby Brighouse Bay Holiday Park has a swimming pool which is open to the public and there also numerous historic sites of interest worth exploring including Kirkandrews Church which is one of the smallest you are ever likely to find.

Cormorant Cottage Reviews
4 star reviewA beautifully situated cottage and very friendly and helpful owner. It was nice to stay in a dog-friendly cottage where the owner clearly adores dogs herself and does not just put up with them, so that the fenced garden was great.
Very warm and cosy and well-appointed - our only small criticism would be that the kitchen was a little snug and could perhaps have been improved by some updatingThe cottages are very well cared for and the owner will be delighted to hear how much you enjoyed both the cottage and her welcome, she is very much "the more the merrier" for dogs and it is a great spot for the waggy tailed ones.
