A wonderful family holiday cottage with excellent sea views close to one of South West Scotland's outstanding beaches at Brighouse Bay. The cottage sleeps six and is equipped to an excellent standard.
Brighouse Bay is a quiet sandy cove with superb views over the Solway to the Lake District and also the Isle of Man. It provides a safe haven for swimming and sailing while there are of course rock pools to explore as well. Other excellent beaches are also available close by at Carrick Bay and Sandgreen to provide more variety.
The local area is a superb base for cycling with quiet country roads or strenuous mountain bike trails in the Forestry Commission Woodlands, the 7Stanes routes are all close by. The coast line is well worth exploring with rugged cliff walks and open beaches whilst the Forestry Commission Woodlands and Galloway Forest Park are also close by providing excellent opportunities for watching wildlife and also, on dark nights, stargazing with the Galloway Forest Park being one of the country's first Dark Sky Parks.
The busy harbour town of Kirkcudbright is only five miles away. The town has a very active Artists community and has an annual art gallery exhibition frequently showcasing works by Monet and other well-known artists. There are local artists' studios which are open to the public and worth exploring. Within the town there are varied independent shops which are worth investigating for local produce and crafts. Slightly further away, Castle Douglas also provides an interesting town to discover and both Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright have good hotels, restaurants and pubs for eating out.
For rainy days the nearby Brighouse Bay Holiday Park has a swimming pool which is open to the public and there also numerous historic sites of interest worth exploring including Kirkandrews Church which is one of the smallest you are ever likely to find.
