This pretty, detached holiday cottage is set amidst rolling farmland in this very scenic area, with lovely beaches, challenging hills and some of the best cycling around. West Mains Cottage is by the Royal Burgh of Wigtown, home to Scotland’s very own national book town, which has become a much-loved institution. It is a must for lover of literacy and is graced by many a famous author, offering lectures and book signings. Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest local nature reserve in Britain. Migrating Solway Geese and the wetland native birds make this an ornithologist’s dream. Newton Stewart is known as the ’Gateway to the Galloway Hills’. These hills are not as lofty as their northern neighbours but are equally challenging. With names like Rig of the Jarkness, the ranges of the Awful Hand and Dungeon, these could be straight out of a Harry Potter tale! The Rhins of Galloway is the most westerly peninsula in Galloway, and at its tip is the Mull of Galloway, with its stunning views and lighthouse. Throughout this peninsula, there are secluded bays, beautiful sandy beaches and superb fishing opportunities. The jewel in the crown of this area is Portpatrick, whose name refers to the legend that St Patrick crossed the North Channel in a single leap. On a clear day you can almost reach out and touch Ireland. There is also fishing and golf nearby. Beach 6 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Wonderful cottage, has recently been renovated and has a new shower and decorating. Completely dog friendly and escape proof, could sit in the sun room with the door open for the dogs, bliss! Also comfy recliners which were a bonus for us oldies. Local dog walking too. Loved it.

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the property. The kitchen was well equipped and is one of the best I have been in for plenty of cutlery ect. The main bathroom shower water ran either hot or cold but there is another shower room at the other end of the property and we used this most of the time. The fencing off of various parts was good and the dog was not able to get out of the garden. The only downside of the stay was wasps that was in the hallway and assume there was a nest in the roof because the windows was closed and they couldn't have come in form anywhere else.
