Holiday Rental House
Kildrochet Cottage is the Victorian wing of an early Georgian country house, set in 5.5 acres of gardens, paddock, woods and lawn, which guests are welcome to use. There is open space for children to play and garden furniture for relaxing and dining outdoors. It is situated 3 miles from the shops and amenities of Stranraer, with it's ferry service to Ireland, and at the top of The Mull of Galloway, Scotland's southernmost point. It is 5 miles from the quaint and hugely popular village of Portpatrick which hosts the start of the east - west Southern Upland Way walk across Scotland, is a short drive from several beaches, and is perfectly located for those interested in rambling, fishing, shooting during the season, cycling and golf. 3 first class golf courses are in the immediate vicinity an...Kildrochet Cottage is the Victorian wing of an early Georgian country house, set in 5.5 acres of gardens, paddock, woods and lawn, which guests are welcome to use.

The Galloway Forest Park, Britain's largest, is about 1 hour's drive away. The interior of the cottage is light and airy, with the lounge having a lovely view over the lawn and garden, and the general ambiance is country cottage but with an individual and artistic slant. Although a 1 - bedroom cottage, there is also a spare, comfortable folding bed for a child or extra guest. Wi-fi internet is available. Pets are welcome. Please see our adjacent one bedroom property on Trip Advisor/Flipkey at - 'The Studio, Beach 10mins, Portpatrick 15mins'. This may be particularly useful for groups of 3 or 4 who wish to travel together as the property also sleeps 2. UPDATE: As of mid June 2015, we now have Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband, so the internet is both much faster and more reliable.More

About the neighbourhood
At the head of The Mull of Galloway, the peninsula at the southernmost point of Scotland. In the countryside of Wigtownshire at the junction of the A716 an B7077. Very near several beaches and the lovely villages of Portpatrick, Wigtown, Port Logan and Kirkcudbright.
Getting around
Having a car is highly recommended as we are out in the countryside and getting around regularly in taxis would be very expensive.
