This substantial Georgian town house, renovated to a high standard, is the end property in a row and is situated in the charming village of Glenluce, with many local shops, pubs and eateries. Beautiful scenic walks can start from the doorstep and lead along the stream and through the glen behind the holiday property, on to the historic remains of Glenluce Abbey, or further down the banks of the Water of Luce to the sands of Luce Bay. This area of Dumfries and Galloway boasts rugged coastlines and secluded sandy beaches which benefit from the warmth of the passing Gulf stream and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, offering an ideal base from which to explore the Machars Peninsula and the Galloway hills. Just to discover this peaceful region with its unspoilt countryside and virtually traffic-free roads is a pleasure itself. There are many beautiful gardens to explore, including the world renowned Logan Botanical Gardens, which is a paradise to behold. It boasts many pretty little ports like Sandhead, Portpatrick and the Isle of Whithorn and the RSPB Scotland Mull of Galloway nature reserve, where thousands of seabirds nest in the cliff face during the spring and summer. Walking is a delight - whether clifftop, beaches, hills, forest or even one of the towns close by. The Southern Upland Way passes close by. A cyclist’s paradise with the 7 stanes within easy reach. If fishing, shooting or golf is your interest, there are many facilities nearby, including five 18-hole golf courses and four salmon rivers. The town of Stranraer, only 20 minutes away offers a selection of shops and restaurants and is home to Stena Line Ferry making a day trip to Ireland possible. Shops and pub 20 yards.
