About the property

This comfortable large country home is in a relatively unknown but spectacular part of Scotland. It is in country lane which provides the peace and tranquility of a rural setting while still being part of the town, Gatehouse of Fleet.

The house overlooks a field which runs down to the river Fleet. It is spacious, centrally-heated house and within walking distance of shops, pubs and other facilities in Gatehouse. The natural character of the garden, which includes a lawned area at the front, attracts local wildlife such as deer, a wide variety of birds and, occasionally, red squirrels.

The surrounding area is well-equipped for diverse outdoor pursuits including cycling, walking, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, golf and tennis. Further afield there are a variety of interesting attractions such as the Dark Sky Park in the Galloway forest, the ‘Awful Hand’ climb up to the Merrick summit and the first stretch of the coast-to-coast Southern Upland Way.

On the ground floor, the house has two lounge areas with their own televisions, a dining room, kitchen and utility room. The second lounge is in the extension part of the house which also has a twin bedroom and a bathroom with wc and easy-access shower. There is a conservatory overlooking the lawned part of the garden.

Ideal for family groups

  • 5 of 5

A lovely large Victorian house. A perfect location for exploring Dumfries and Galloway.

The house was large enough for our extended family group with enough reception rooms to have space for all. The weather was cold with snow on some days but the house, although large with high ceilings, was wonderfully warm.

Communication with the owner was excellent and welcome instructions simple and easy to follow.

All in all a fabulous holiday in a great house

We’d recommend the round house at Whithorn and a bit further afield - Culzean Castle and Drumlanrig as places to visit.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry the house was not what you were looking for. The kitchen is fully equipped and most people appreciate the spaciousness. The furniture is deliberately functional as we cater mostly for families but we also have areas such as the dining room which are certainly not basic. Thank you for taking the time to write a short review and we will certainly take your comments into consideration.

Great location and comfortable accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

A handsome large house in a lovely position with great views from the garden and almost all the rooms. It's well equipped, provides plentiful hot water, is efficiently heated, and there's easily enough room for 8 people.

The owner is helpful and the entry instruction clear.

Gatehouse of Fleet is a pleasant mid-sized village with a couple of food shops and pubs, a park, and various gift shops. Close to the beaches, hills and beautiful countryside of Dumfries and Galloway.

Only downside is that the fridge(s) could be bigger / better.

Loads of space and beatiful views

  • 5 of 5

Property was in great location for exploiting the views out through the conservatory and large windows. Rooms are large and enough space for our two families and everything clean and fresh. 5 minutes walk to the Masonic arms which sold good food/beer. Beach as Mossyard is stunning and fortunately we had good weather during our stay.

Nice large, warm house in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Great house with large rooms and good central heating. Location is great, feesl like out in the country, but just a short walk to pubs and shops in the lovely town of Gatehouse. Great location for beaches and hills and not crowded with tourists.
