Stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend. From the minute we walked through the door, we just fell in love with the house. It was absolutely perfect with plenty of space (and toilets/showers) for everyone. The views were stunning and the livingroom was excellent for our group to eat/relax in. The area surrounding the house was beautiful for walks and there were some fantastic boats in the harbour for us to go see.
We went to Laggan Activity Centre for the day which was amazing!
All communication with the ower Shona was very friendly and informative. Will definitely be back ...hopefully soon! Thank you.
Idyllic location, well furnished and close to all the amenities Kirkudbright has to offer. Well positioned to enjoy exploring Dumfries and Galloway, its coast,forests and mountains.

Very good directions, so easy to find. Lovely, restful riverside setting: very relaxing, with great views of boats & tides coming & going. Some spectacular sunsets. Plenty of space for our three generation family of six. The 'studio' is equipped well with some basic games, toys and a DVD player, which helped a lot with pre-bedtime unwinding and early rising children. The open plan kitchen-dining-lounge area allows for everyone to be part of planning and relaxing before & after meals. The house is very well equipped in general - having three bathrooms was a real bonus. Would definitely recommend for a family. The area is full of beautiful places to visit and lots of different activities to enjoy. Would love to return!
When we walked into the boathouse we were more than happy the photos do not do justice the layout was great large living area with kitchen and stunning views across the estuary. The furnishings were A+ and with 3 bathrooms no queues, the owners have ensured it is home from home i can not think of how they can improve, the town of Kirkcudbright is lovely and people we met friendly will definitely return to this property.
When we looked for a place to spend a relaxing break away after the Christmas festivities but that would also allow us to celebrate New Year in style, little did we know that we had found the perfect place at The Boathouse.
The accommodation is amazing, with everything that you may need during your stay. The location is stunning, with boats moored right outside your window, the birds and the tides creating an ever changing & fascinating picture for you to watch. The town has everything that you need and the people are the friendliest we have ever met.
We arrived during some of the worst storms the north have seen for many years, so we decided that we would park the cars up for the week and make the most of what Kirkcudbright and the Boathouse had to offer and we were not disappointed. The Boathouse has ample room for 3 couples, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 lounges & a dining room to seat 8, patio and balcony on the waterside. All up to a high standard and there is plenty of space for your party to eat together or alternatively find a corner to escape to sit and read. Plenty of places to eat out and some great bars to have a drink in after a long walk.
All in all, a perfect holiday destination that we would highly recommend.
