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 a 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. 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.

    Loved Little Boreland, very homely and comfortable. Had a fantastic stay and would love to go back! Children loved the attic rooms! A stairgate would be advisable if staying with young toddlers/ young children not confident on stairs, going up to attic rooms as very steep - although our 2 1/2 year old managed fine ( she is used to stairs). Really relaxing holiday destination!

    Wow what a wonderful place. 4 adults and 4 children had an amazing sunny week in Scotland. The property was well equipped and spacious. The children were very happy in the attic and the rooms were a lot bigger than the photographs indicated. A bonus that the double rooms had sinks in too. The town of gatehouse was only a stroll from the cottage and the tourist destinations were a maximum of 20 minutes drive away, and the beach 10 minutes drive. Fires outside every night listening to the wildlife. A magical stay.

    Beautiful cottage in gorgeous surroundings. The cottage was well equipped. The children loved the gardens and woods. We loved relaxing in the porch or by the fire. Easy walk into the lovely town. We reccommend the Masonic Arms for food and drink. Visited the bookshop at the Mill, well worth a visit. We had a walk around the viaduct. Amazing scenery. Look forward to returning.
