The Boathouse

Boat house -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
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.

We could not have found anywhere more perfect for my special birthday. This lovely unique house with its spectacular views ensured that I had a birthday that I will always remember. We loved the house, loved the terrace, loved the views and really enjoyed Kirkcudbright.

The apartment itself is spacious and extremely well equipped. Being all on one level it was very suitable for my elderly friend. We appreciated having our own bathrooms just opposite our bedrooms. Altho there were only two of us I can imagine how it could...More
