This terraced holiday cottage date from 1740 when it was originally the customs house, a part of the Solway Garrison. It has been refurbished to a very good standard and is ideally positioned on the edge of the main street in this peaceful fishing village. Overlooking the bay and harbour, it is within feet of the beach where swans and herons are regular visitors.
Golf, riding, walking and cycling locally along with sea fishing and fishing trips from the harbour. Nearby Garlieston House, gardens and beach, St Ninian’s Cave and the Gavin Maxwell Memorial provide an insight into the history of the area. Visit Wigtown, Scotland’s premiere book town, and the Bladnoch Whisky Distillery, and for a day out, visit Castle Kennedy, Port Patrick, the original gateway to Ireland, and Logan Botanic Gardens with a unique collection of plants from New Zealand and Australia.

1st comment: Lovely cottage in excellent location overlooking lovely fishing harbour. Couldn’t have asked for better. March 2012.
2nd comment: We had a brilliant time here. Lovely size house and very near to the pub. A few tips would be to stop off in a main town to buy your food etc, Take a first aid kit just in case and dont forget your welly’s! Dec 2011.
3rd comment: This property and the surounding area was perfect for my wife, myself and our two dogs with lovely sea air and long ecluded walks all on the doorstep
4th comment: A fantastic location with wonderful views over the harbour. The steam packet pub was dog and child friendly which makes a lovely change. The house was cosy and you couldnt want for anything in the kitchen, the only draw back- no shower- but we managed. Aug 2011.
5th comment: This was a lovely location, peaceful and very relaxing. Lots to see, visited Stranraer, Dumfries, Newton Stewart, Ninians cave, local beaches - lovely. Steampacket pub in the harbour had good beer and excellent food. Would go back for sure. July 2011.
6th comment: The cottage was in a superb location, perfectly placed with a stunning view of the harbour. It was extremely well kitted out with an assortment of brochures for the many interesting places to visit and numerous books, games, etc. for the possibility of bad weather. I was very impressed with the standard of food and service at the local pub/restaurant, The Steamboat Inn. The cottage was lovely although an electric shower would be an added bonus. I would absolutely recommend this property. March 2011.
