“Superb rIver views, town centre location.”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Excellent cottage, private and comfortable, with terrace and large windows overlooking the river, close to harbour and Kirkcudbright town centre.
Lots to do in area and town. Coastal walks, ruined castles, local cafes and restaurants. We caught the end of the annual jazz festival and enjoyed a bistro meal with jazz pianist. The National Trust property Broughton House with it's beautiful garden is a few doors away.
We always managed to get a parking space in the High Street.

“Even better than it looked on the website.”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Boathouse exceeded our expectations. Beautifully appointed and furnished and with that wonderful view of the river. Kirkcudbright is a lovely little town and well placed to visit this great area.

“Superb!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The Boathouse exceeded all our expectations. Fantastic location, central but private, warm, well stocked, comfy beds & seating, lovely outside space too. I took the 2nd lounge with en-suite, made up as a bedroom (sofa bed) and it was perfectly comfy. Very cold whilst there, but it was easy to alternate the heating as needed and the 3 bathrooms have underfloor heating too. Plenty to do in such a friendly and attractive town a lovely bistro and the Kirkcudbright Bay Hotel is wonderful for a drink and lunch with locals. This is one of my favourite places and certainly an all year around destination; The Boathouse should be first place to check if staying!

“Fantastic getaway, beautiful house.”
Reviewed 21 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Stayed here for a few days in early December. Beautiful house in ideal location. Nice to have a few days to chill before the madness of Christmas. Lots of lovely wee shops and close to park which our dog loved too. Would definitely visit again, even our picky kids loved it. Opening the blinds in the morning to view the marina is a great way to start your day!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review at this busiest of times. Glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay in spite of the inclement weather. The Boathouse is indeed a great place to stay if you want to get away from it all but still have easy access to shops, cafes etc.
