Traditional Period Cottage (LEFT of Pic1 / sl 4) with panoramic sea views in Isle of Whithorn, Dumfries & Galloway -voted Britain's Holiday Destination 2016 by CountryFile readers. Experience the true RURAL IDYLL, less than 2hrs from Carlisle!

The space
A traditional Period Cottage with magnificent sea views, PEREGRINE Cottage sl. 2-4 (on LEFT of Pic1) offers the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful, unspoilt SW Scottish peninsula. With great sandy beaches bathed by the Gulf Stream, beautiful flora and fauna, dark skies at night, PEREGRINE Cottage is also conveniently close (1 mile) to the award winning SteamPacket Inn, popular for its choice of ales & good pub grub. Travel writer D. Wills described this area as "an overlooked corner [of Scotland] whose time has come."
So, keep right on trend! Come and discover the southerly tip of the Scottish peninsula before everybody else does ... and prepare to be amazed!

Guest access
The whole of PEREGRINE Cottage sl. 2-4 (on LEFT of Pic1) is yours to enjoy, as well as the left section of the large landscaped garden, separated by a tall hedge from the garden next door. There is a wooden table & bench on the sunny terrace at the front of the house, the better to enjoy the sea views over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Let the children pick the raspberries and redcurrants in the garden (before the birds do!) and try rock-fishing only 200 yards across from the cottage. Enjoy the picturesque coastal walk with your dog (NB: dog supplement is £30 per dog/wk) but remember to take your binoculars, because the farm is a haven for wildlife. Deer, foxes, badgers and all manners of endangered rare birds abound, due to the owners' conservationist policy. There is a small seal colony of seals which can often be seen basking on the nearby rocks in the summer months. You'll find plenty of safe, private parking space in front of PEREGRINE for cars or boats alike.

Other things to note
DIGITAL DETOX RECOMMENDED: You'll find a large screen TV + DVD player at PEREGRINE but bear in mind there is no WIFI and mobile reception is quite poor.
However, there is a FREE WIFI Cafe in St NInian's Hall, only 1.2 mile from cottage, which by the way serves delicious, very reasonably priced breakfasts (cf Feedback from previous guests) and enjoys unbeatable sea views.

Location

Whithorn, United Kingdom

The area is well-known for its lovely sandy beaches at low tide (i.e. Monreith ; Rigg Bay) and amazing walks (coastal walk just across from Morrach ; St Ninian's Walk ; Kilsture Forest.)
Amongst the best local attractions are, to name but a few: Wigtown National Booktown & Farmers'Market, Creetown Gem Rock Museum, Laggan Outdoor Centre with one of the longest Zip Wires in Europe, the Cocoa Bean Company and Cream of Galloway (Ice-Creams) both in the artist town of Kirkcudbright.
Logan Botanic Garden is well-worth the detour for its sub-tropical ferns alone + there is a plethora of excellent gardens open to the public from Easter onwards, due to our Gulf Stream induced, mild micro-climate.
Here you will be able to enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the U.K, use one of the 7 Stanes cycle tracks with routes for all abilities in Kirroughtree Forest, or simply RELAX & sample fresh, delicious seafood from any of the quaint little restaurants hidden in the many remote fishing villages dotted along the coastline. Pure Bliss!

During your stay
We'll be waiting for you at CUTREOCH FARM (where we live) to give you the KEYS and from Cutreoch, we'll take you to PEREGRINE Cottage, just 1 mile down the private road. We'll proceed to show you round the premises & make sure you're comfortably settled etc ... before finally leaving you to enjoy your new holiday home and surroundings. You'll find complimentary fresh flowers & wine in the fridge upon arrival, while guests booking for the FULL WEEK can also expect a platter of luxury canapes. Later on during the week, feel free to pop in at Cutreoch should you wish to buy organic free-range eggs or to view Chantal's quirky animal-painted rocks. Phone first though, to make sure I am at home.
