The Charming Fleet Cottage Sleeps 4 | 2 Bathrooms
Visiting here feels like coming home.
Decorated in soft blues and greens, The Charming Fleet Cottage is located nearby the Galloway Forest Park and is dog friendly!
There is always something to do here, whatever the weather.
The Petite Fleet Cottage Sleeps 2 | 1 Bathroom
Cozy up on the sofa with the comfort of a log fire or walk out into the garden and enjoy the night sky of the Dark Skies Park.
Wake up to the birds, roam the woods with the dog, enjoy the sunsets over the bay.
The Lowlands of Scotland has so much to offer and it's less of a tourist attraction than the Highlands.
This adorable town was created by the Murray family in the 17th century but did not attract tradesmen until 1785, when tanneries and mills began to populate the area.
During this period Gatehouse of Fleet became a cotton spinning town on the banks of the Fleet, with its very own port!
Today, the industrial town is an attractive rural and petite village with one main high street, local art shops, cafes, pubs, a beautiful mill & visitor centre, and ruins of a castle (with stunning views from the top!).
A beautiful spot to sit and take in the peacefulness of the place.
The former textile mill is now a lovely visitor centre, with an interesting museum and bookshop/gift shop, both giving the impression that time has stopped, making them more fascinating.
The history of the town is made much more interesting with scale models of Gatehouse of Fleet and the staff is really helpful!
Upstairs, the bookshop feels more like a magic maze, with books everywhere!
Some books look very old and it makes the experience fun, as you wander between beautiful old covers.
On the right, there is a nice gift shop with many quirky and local items.
Enjoy a restful night's sleep in the stunning Boutique Fleet Cottage, and venture out to discover a little more.
Cardoness Castle will not disappoint.
The hills rise on each side of the valley and it is difficult to believe how flat the land is that leads out to the water of the Solway and its beaches.
The cottage below was full of information and facts and the Castle itself had information about each area displayed.
Dumfries & Galloway is a beautiful part of Scotland, and a trip to Gatehouse of Fleet has much to offer.
It lures you into a different pace, as you slow down, wander around and discover so many beautiful places, from hidden gardens to nearby old and forgotten castles.
