After a stunning 4 mile drive along the pebbled shoreline of Loch Ryan, you reach the sleepy hamlet of Kirkcolm where this charming terraced cottage, a listed building, is the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. Built in 1846, the cottage has been tastefully renovated and the rooms are well-appointed and finished to a very high standard. There is an elevated sun deck to the rear, accessed by steps and a small patio area off the kitchen with patio furniture and barbecue. The property may suit some visitors with limited mobility.
Local pursuits include fishing, sailing, cycling, pony trekking, golf and hill-walking - the Southern Upland Way starts nearby. The village has a general store and local pub. The town of Stranraer offers shops, pubs, restaurants, swimming pool and cinema and affords visitors the opportunity of day trips to Ireland -the ferry crossing takes 1 1/2 hours.
Ground floor: 1 double bedroom, welcoming living room with open fire; newly fitted, well-equipped kitchen, bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and a period fireplace.
Upstairs: 2 very spacious twin bedrooms in the attic. A camp bed is also available.
Cooking by electricity, oil-fired central heating plus open fire. Fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, television, DVD, CD player. Bed linen and towels are provided.
