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.

The Cottage is also perfect for bracing winter holidays where its warmth and comfort provide a cosy refuge for very attractive week or weekend breaks at low season rates.
