The Details...

Soothe your mind, body and soul and indulge in a restorative escape at these boutique country cottages in Dumfries and Galloway. Packed with luxury home comforts and stunning Georgian features, the two Gatehouses-of-Fleet Cottages are the ultimate elixir. Explore the characterful village inns and get to know the locals, or pack your walking boots and head out into the dramatic, open landscapes. Scotland’s untouched scenery is on show for all to see, so prepare for enchanting forests, sparkling lochs and secluded, sandy beaches

Set in the former schoolhouse of a picture-perfect village, the two 18th century cottages have been given a luxe-country finish. Expect Georgian sash windows and thick oak floorboards, alongside deep sofas, gourmet kitchens and decadent, modern bathrooms. Timeless original features have been carefully preserved, and are complimented by contemporary furnishings and state-of-the-art-tech. Thoughtful little extras have been handpicked with care; look out for the designer toiletries and kitchen fare.

Both Willow and Knocktinkle cottages have a warm and inviting design, with relaxed sitting rooms leading through to a contemporary kitchen-diner. Soft, natural shades add to their calming style while bold splashes of colour add a fresh and creative vibe. Get lost in your favourite book beside the roaring log burners or catch up on your favourite shows with the Smart TV and WIFI. Bespoke kitchens have everything you could ask for and more, including piles of pots and pans and a handy spice store.

Each chic cottage has room for up to four across two sumptuous bedrooms hidden up on the first floor. There’s a large master bedroom with a king size bed and another spacious double room, both dressed with plush duvets, elegant throws and plump piles of cushions in Knocktinkle and a twin/superking and a king in Willow. Both cottages feature two deluxe bathrooms each to finish the accommodation, one boasting a seriously indulgent tub and the other a sleek shower cubicle or wet room.

Beyond the stillness of your cottage, lies the magnificent Scottish countryside with its rugged moors, soaring peaks, and serene lake waters. Visit beautiful stately gardens or crumbling castle turrets, stopping off in tranquil country villages and ancient forest woodlands. Head to Galloway Forest Park to see its pristine night skies, or Kirroughtree Forest for its mountain bike trails. Mossyard and Carrick beaches can also be found nearby, along with the Kirkcudbright arts scene and Wigtown’s literary highs.

Closer to home, you can get to know Gatehouse of Fleet, exploring its rich, industrial history and mill exhibitions. Sample delicious home-cooked food in the local inns, or jump on the mammoth zip wire at Laggan Activity Centre. For a more relaxed stay, sit out in your courtyard garden soaking up the tranquillity of the village and its laidback, country ways.
