Description

An ideal retreat to explore the Solway Coast. Set within large gardens and woodland with hill walks from the door.

A late 18th century former farmhouse located close to the coast

Spectacular setting for wildlife, this cottage is a gem, with its own tranquil gardens and woodland on a hillside near Cardoness Castle, with walks directly from the door. Little Boreland, a late 18th century listed farmhouse, is full of character and has caught the eye of many passing artists. It is an ideal holiday retreat for all ages from which to explore the beautiful, unspoilt Fleet Valley National Scenic Area. It is within a short stroll of the conservation town of Gatehouse of Fleet, with shops, cafés, restaurants, Galloway Kilts and other local arts and crafts, and the Mill on the Fleet Visitor Centre.

In 1951, Glencairn Balfour Paul saw the house from the road and fell in love with it. His brother Ian, a keen bird watcher and elder of the Kirk, lived there from 1990, with other family members also using it for holiday lets. Many people have depicted the house and adjoining wood, including early 20th century local artists such as A R Sturrock and A M Hotchkis. The Balfour Pauls found Little Boreland just magical.

There are sandy beaches and rocky coves along the coast while the hillier countryside is good for walking. Nearby the Galloway Forest Park, known for its starlit dark skies, has excellent cycle paths. There is so much to see and do with castles, prehistoric sites and specialist gardens, thanks to Galloway’s mild climate. Activities for children include the Cream o’ Galloway adventure playground, with its celebrated ice cream, or the Laggan outdoor centre with its zip wire. There are ample opportunities for fishing, horse riding and golf. Nearby are many attractive towns: Kirkcudbright, the artists’ town offering boat trips and art and craft shops; Castle Douglas, Scotland’s food town with many specialist shops and nearby Threave Castle and Gardens; Wigtown, Scotland’s national book town, and Creetown featuring the Gem Rock Museum. Shops, pubs and restaurants ½ mile.

    A lovely cottage in a great location. Very well equiped and a comfortable, peaceful retreat to return to after exploring the beautiful countryside. We will be more than happy to return here next year
