WE ARE DELIGHTED TO WELCOME TEAPOT COTTAGE BACK TO OUR PORTFOLIO with availability throughout 2024
Teapot Cottage is a spacious, detached, single-story property with commanding views across open countryside. The double aspect windows in the living room are a sun trap from which to enjoy the surrounding scenery. Situated just 3 miles from Creetown home of the well-known Gem Rock Museum and cafe, where you can view its collection of rare and beautiful crystals from around the world. This small rural town also boasts a general store and butcher’s shop. Slightly further afield is Gatehouse of Fleet, which offers several opportunities for eating out. The cottage is ideal for multi generation family holidays, yet cosy if just a couple.
An ideal destination for those who enjoy the great outdoors as the local area is a natural playground. A short drive or a cycle ride along National Cycle Route 7 takes you to Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve, one of the wildest areas within South West Scotland and a site of Special Scientific Interest within the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere. The area boasts a wide range of wildlife habitats with peregrine falcon, hen harriers and red deer often seen and is a wildlife enthusiasts paradise. Not for the feint hearted is the Graham from which the reserve takes its name – Cairnsmore of Fleet, rising 711m in elevation, from the top are the most spectacular views which on a clear day can include the Isle of Man and Ailsa Craig off the Ayrshire coast.
Nearby Newton Stewart offers all the usual facilities of a small rural town including numerous places for eating out, a cinema, swimming pool at the Merrick Leisure Centre and major supermarkets. The town is heralded as the ‘gateway’ to Galloway Forest Park, the first designated Dark Sky Park in Britain covering over 300 square miles and offers unsurpassed opportunities for walking and cycling with one of the 7 Stanes sections located at Kirroughtree. Wildlife watching opportunities abound and of course amazing star gazing! Loch Ken Activity Centre, the Galloway Red Deer Range and Bellymack Hill Red Kite Feeding Station all lie within the Forest borders and each offer fantastic family activities.

Also, within a short drive are Bladnoch Whisky Distillery and Visitor Centre and Port Logan Fish Pond, a 200-year-old sea fish larder near Port Logan home to wide variety of local marine life and has a fascinating history.
