On the edge of Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, this traditional single storey cottage is situated on an upland farm, in a superb hillside position, with panoramic views over the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area to the sea and islands beyond. It is a simply wonderful location for a peaceful family holiday, offering seclusion, but not total isolation, with under 10 minutes away by car the picturesque town of Gatehouse of Fleet providing hotels, restaurants, shops, a delightful and testing nine hole golf course, tennis courts, river and loch fishing and numerous other nearby attractions and activities for both adults and children. With a patio for barbecues and alfresco dining, and a fully enclosed and south facing garden, pets are welcome.
Sandy beaches and rocky coves for bathing, windsurfing and sailing are within easy driving distance; sea fishing and horse riding are also available; the Forestry Commission 7Stanes mountain biking trail at Kirroughtree is around 30 minutes' drive away; and the area is a haven for wildlife, with regular sightings of deer, red squirrels, red kites, grouse, barn owls and curlews. From the cottage door there are extensive walks and mountain bike rides over hill, past lochs, through forestry and down the valley; Laggan Outdoor, Cream o'Galloway and the Cocoa Bean Chocolate factory are all under 20 minutes' drive away; whilst Kirkcudbright Artists' Town, Castle Douglas Food Town and Wigtown Book Town are just 25, 30 and 45 minutes' drive away respectively.

Laghead Cottage Reviews
4 star reviewCosy cottage in a wonderfully quiet location with great views. Had everything we needed and more. Plenty of crockery, cutlery even dog towels, bowls. Gated garden which was great for the dog. Cattle grid at the end of the lane. Good wifi. Within 10 mins drive of Gatehouse of Fleet. Some lovely walks in the area. Thanks for the lemon drizzle and milk! Hope to return next year.
5 star reviewThis cottage has everything that you would use at home, it’s clean comfortable and warm and cosy. The views are second to none. Peaceful quiet location. The fact that we’ve been 17 times in 8 years says it all.
5 star reviewJust love this cottage and the beautiful surrounding scenery. It’s so peaceful and quiet. The cottage has got everything you could possibly need. It’s even got dog bowls for the dogs food, and a bird feeding station in the garden. It is just perfect.
