A delightful cottage in the pretty coastal village of Port William, with lovely views of the sea.

This delightful cottage is just the ticket for a cosy holiday in the pretty coastal village of Port William. Light, airy and spacious with lovely views of the sea and pretty terraced garden, Harbour View retains a charm all of its own. Port William offers everything you could possibly need and all virtually on the doorstep! This is an ideal base for walking, cycling, fishing and golf. Dumfries and Galloway is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets and this area known as The Machars is no exception with something for everyone. This magnificent coastline is endowed with sandy bays and stony beaches and hidden caves all designed to inspire the imagination. The wildlife is second to none including otters and seals being a frequent sight especially before sunset. Monreith has a lovely sandy beach and a 9 hole golf course. There is a visitor’s centre in the harbour housing the local Lifeboat Station, a gift shop and cafe. There is a memorial to the author, Gavin Maxwell of ’Ring of Bright Water’ fame, in the form of a bronze otter. Scotland’s National Book Town at Wigtown is less than a half hour’s enjoyable drive away and besides playing host to an exciting annual literary festival it is also a pleasant little town offering many facilities. Essentially Wigtown is a book lover’s haven and with over a quarter of a million old and new books to choose from, you’ll not leave empty handed! Scotland’s most southerly distillery sits beside the luscious green banks of the River Bladnoch, from which it takes its name. It has been producing the "Spirit of the Lowlands" since 1817. Can you refuse a ’wee dram’! Guests are assured of a warm welcome when visiting Port William. The village holds an annual Carnival Week with events for all the family. Harbour View is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Luce Bay, from Burrow Head to The Mull of Galloway has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation to protect the natural habitats of fauna and wild flora much of it rare and protected. For nature watch lovers both botanists and bird watchers will be delighted by the variety of wildlife to be found both on land and sea. Badgers, deer and foxes are occasionally seen close by. A visit to the nearby Burrow Head will take you back to the famous closing scenes of the cult film The Wickerman which was shot at nearby Burrow Head which is on the route to the Isle of Whithorn. Don’t worry if you miss the ferry you can always walk across! Cycling is a real pleasure on these quiet picturesque roads but if you fancy trying something a lot more adventurous then head eastwards for a great choice of 7Stanes venues for some world class mountain biking. Don’t forget to find Port William’s best known citizen who always looks out to sea!

    Lovely, well equipped and quiet cottage. The garden wasn't actually enclosed, so small dogs can get into neighbours gardens, fortunately very friendly. There's a convenient gap at the top of the garden on to Maxwell Park, which is great if your dogs aren't wanderers 😂. The only issue being the fly's coming up from the harbour on hot day's.

    The property is well proportioned and conveniently located within the village close to the small local shop and a restaurant. There is a fine view from the top of the rather steeply terraced garden. I would however agree with previous guests on some shortcomings - poor quality towels, garden not pet secure, overuse of advisory notes around the property, also the rug from lounge was missing, and I too could not find a vacuum cleaner. Housekeeping issues such as no spare loo rolls provided, missing light bulbs, and spent batteries not replaced were disappointing. In my experience, 4-star properties generally provide a ‘Welcome Pack’ consisting of a few basic grocery supplies such as, for example, freshly baked bread and some local produce, or in any case, at least a pint of milk in the fridge as an absolute minimum, which was not the case at this property. Based on our stay experience, I would rate the property as 3-star at present.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments - We do always provide a loo roll on arrival, but as it is self-catering accommodation, we don’t provide a full supply. I’m sorry you found light bulbs missing and spent batteries. I have checked and I didn’t find any missing however in the guest file it does tell guests where to find the spare ones in the kitchen drawer. Additionally, your welcome letter had our telephone number for any problems and we would have resolved this at the time if we had been aware. Thanks, we hope this hasn’t deterred you from returning.
