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, 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 for twenty years from 1990, following which other family members now maintain the house and its grounds through 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 Galloways’ 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.

    We had a lovely week at Little Boreland. The setting is fabulous and great for children - lots to explore. You are also a short journey to the charming Gatehouse of Fleet - nice beer garden at the Ship Inn, lovely park and useful shops. Fantastic beaches are not far away either.

    An excellent cottage on the outskirts of Gatehouse of Fleet in a semi woodland setting and feeling quite remote. Excellent for families although there's plenty of water close by if you have little ones.
