A WELCOME RETURN TO OWL COTE, under new ownership

Owl Cote offers luxury holiday accommodation for 5, with breath-taking views over the Solway Firth and towards the Murray Isles and beyond. The property sits in roughly in ¾ acres of typical coastal garden. Carrick Bay enjoys an amazing rural setting as well as providing a hideaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Carrick shore is a place of unspoilt natural beauty boasting a picturesque sandy beach. The star attraction of Owl Cote is situated upstairs, the large sitting room, with its glass gable and 10ft glass balcony giving year-round outstanding views over the sea.

With a beautiful unspoilt sandy beach at the end of the drive, idyllic summer days can be spent building sandcastles, playing beach games, rock pooling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are numerous nearby attractions and activities for all ages including Cream o' Galloway where you can participate in ice cream and cheese making workshops, enjoy a Farm tour (seasonal) or a stroll around their nature trails and of course enjoy delicious ice cream afterwards. The Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory offers both indoor and outdoor play areas and chocolate making workshops. Slightly further afield is Galloway Activity Centre which offers both land and water-based activities on the shores of Loch Ken.

Located approximately 5 miles from the picturesque small rural town of Gatehouse of Fleet which provides numerous opportunities for eating out - we highly recommend The Galloway Lodge for breakfast or lunch and The Masonic offers great food and beer! small shops, a delightful and testing nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, river and loch fishing. Historical attractions are Cardoness Castle, a late 15th-century fortified tower house that was the ancient seat of the McCullochs, and the ruins of Anwoth Church with its atmospheric graveyard, complete with Covenanter graves.

Slightly further afield but well worth a visit are; Kirkcudbright known as the Artist's Town due to its links with the Glasgow Boys and Girls. The town is also home to the Dark Sky Planetarium, Kirkcudbright Galleries, a cookery school, community run swimming pool, 18-hole golf course, and an array of independent shops and eateries.
