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.

    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.

    Seven days of perfect October Galloway weather. Not a drop of rain once and warm, blue-sky weather all week (for once!). Anwoth trees in golden foliage with berries in the hedges, Red Squirrels running amock and deer wandering past in the mornings. Gatehouse looking better than ever and each day dawning with a clear blue sky and staying that way. I saw the Jay for five of our seven days and he saw me too. We played keek-a-boo each time until Mr Jay got bored and flew off towards Cardoness for some peace. The prehistoric rock art at Lagganmullan photographed better than ever, in low-angled morning or late afternoon sun. The addition of a little water brought a gleaming shine to the contours and shadows of the cups and rings. We wandered around the Castramont Woods and ate heartily at the Galloway Lodge (Friday Burger Night is a must). Picked fat sloes by the shore at Mossyard and they shall flavour up some spirit or other for next year. We had a full house and everyone was happy and enjoyed their time in this magic place. The house was beautifully clean and tidy. There was milk, cake, coffee and tea etc. waiting for us on arrival. Bedrooms and linen beautifully clean and fresh. We came away refreshed and full of vigour and vim after a great week.

    We enjoyed our stay at Little Boreland very much. The accomodation is simply great and it was fun to learn a lot about this place. Everything was so well prepared that we felt like home from the beginning. As we were very lucky with the weather there were lots of outdoor activities to do. Of course the boys liked the beaches best, looking for fishes, crabs and other water animals. Even swimming in the sea was possible. But castles and abbeys as well were conquered by the children with very much fun and exploratory spirit. Another highlight was the Gatehouse Festival with the sheep race, torch march and fireworks.
