Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
A unique location off the historic High Street overlooking Kirkcudbright marina and harbour with far reaching views of the Galloway Hills. Sit out on the jetty and watch the yachts or the fishing boats approaching harbour. Or get out the binoculars and spot the cormorants. Fabulous views from all the bedrooms and both sitting rooms. Enjoy a barbecue on the completely private, sunny patio. Spacious accommodation on one level with plenty of room for 8. 3 bathrooms so no waiting around to get in the shower! Very quiet and peaceful but only 3 minute's walk from all amenities.
Bed linen, towels and heating included.

This really is as good as it looks....a lovely house, very spacious, very well-equipped kitchen, cosy bedrooms, and an open plan living/dining room big enough to move about in. The views from the front of the house were just amazing. The balcony/patio was a fantastic...More

Thank you very much for your lovely review. Some guests don't like the idea of not having a parking space next to the house but the advantage of being so far from the street, as you noticed, is the peace and quiet which hits you...More
