Welcome to Gate Cottage, Sandhead...
This is a newly renovated, luxury, 3-bedroom, self-catering Cottage which sleeps 5. It has been recently awarded the Scottish Tourist Board 4-Star rating.
In addition to the three bedrooms, there is a comfortable lounge, shower room, utility room and a large dining kitchen with french doors leading out to the decking and the rear garden, with views over the farmland forming part of the owners' beef & sheep farm. The rear garden is a lovely area to enjoy the evening sun or for the children to play their games. A BBQ is provided and charcoal can also be provided if required.
The nearby sandy beach is a popular spot for families to spend enjoyable summer days. Sandhead village has a hotel and restaurant, tea room and shop. Further facilities are available at the popular town of Portpatrick and also slightly further away at Stranraer. Scotland is steeped in history so there are numerous historical and archaeological sites in the vicinity, and attractions well worth visiting are the Logan Botanic Gardens and Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, Scotland's most southerly point.
If more strenuous pursuits are required then, as you would expect, there are numerous golf courses, opportunities for walking and watching wildlife, cycling trails and mountain biking opportunities in the Forestry woodlands. All these are available close to the property and also further afield for those looking for greater variety.
The coastal location of course means water sports are readily available including fishing, be it sea, loch or river. The cottage is ideal for walkers, cyclists and water enthusiasts, as there is ample storage for equipment which can be washed and locked away.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing seaside family holiday, quiet nature-based activities or active outdoor pursuits, Gate Cottage is sure to please.
"Lovely cottage, great surroundings, we have had an ideal break away from it all with a “home from home” base. We are looking forward to returning and thank you for the warm welcome shown."
