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.

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.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

When you book online you never know what you're getting but you go on previous reviews and keep your fingers crossed! We arrived at the house after 8 hour drive from Sussex. The house was warm and welcoming.- it is absolutely huge and we seemed to come upon another room as we checked it out. The bedrooms are large and comfortably furnished, sinks in each room too.. There is a self contained extension which is useful.

Large living room and dining room with beautiful views across the fields. The kitchen has everything you need and a utility room with washing machine and dryer, ironing board. There are two fridges which was good as there were 7 of us.

The house could easily accommodate 10 without feeling overcrowded. We were up for a family wedding so didn't have much time for touring the area but we went to a pretty bay - Brighouse not faraway and a lovely drive up and around Loch Ken.

Would highly recommend this property especially good for a large family gathering.

Lovely property, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time when we came to gatehouse of fleet and stayed here! We came down for the dark skies park to watch a meteor shower and weren't disappointed! The garden was perfect for star gazing and the house was spectacular - very well equipped, plenty of room for us all and comfortable, it felt like home! Will definitely be back!!!

Peaceful Haven

  • 4 of 5

Great location with fine views across the valley. Easy to imagine this place as a nice family home.

Clean and warm on arrival, immediately felt at home.

Property is well equipped with plenty of space for all to enjoy. Even the conservatory is heated. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom are ideal for giving a separate area if required. We used the large ground floor room with a large picture window as our entertainment centre and the other large room for relaxation. Good size kitchen and large dining room.

Only a quiet 5 min walk into the village where there are a few shops. Also the Masonic Arms which provides a good atmosphere and either bar meals or a nice heated conservatory restaurant. Visited twice and good on both occasions; recommended.

Ideal base for touring the various local attractions. You can enjoy a walk from Barchuill through the village into Cally Woods and beyond or soon be in Galloway Forest Park.

Owner very helpful and responded quickly to emails.

A good holiday and would return. Still plenty of places left to visit. Tip: take an adaptor for electric shaver or tooth brush.
