    Enjoying a wonderful setting just a mile from the sea, this detached cottage is situated on the edge of the picturesque town of Portpatrick and offers an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Dumfries and Galloway boasts rugged coastlines and secluded sandy beaches which benefit from the warmth of the passing Gulf Stream. It is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, offering an ideal base from which to explore the Rhins and Machars Peninsulas and the Galloway Hills. Climb the steps of the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and admire the stunning views from the top. Alternatively, Corsewall Lighthouse is ideal for lunches and meals in its restaurant.
    The Southern Upland Way passes close by, with the challenging uplands of the Galloway Hills, gentle seaside trails, rolling moors and dramatic cliff-top walks, presenting the ideal focus from which to enjoy the many and varied shorter walks within the region. The dramatic scenery is home to a rich selection of flora and fauna, with many unusual species including pine martens, golden eagles, ospreys, red deer, red squirrels and the natterjack toad.
    The area has many renowned gardens to visit including the Botanic Gardens in Port Logan. Wigtown, Scotland’s official book town, is also home to a charming gallery and excellent cafés, and is located only a few miles from Bladnoch Distillery, where visitors can sample the local malt whisky.
    For fishermen, the area offers a wide variety of opportunities including sea fishing from Portpatrick, and both trout and salmon fishing close by. Other country pursuits are available including shooting and riding. Golfers will feel equally at home in this area with Stranraer, Portpatrick and Lagganmore golf courses within a 20-minute drive. Turnberry, with its world famous course, is only 45 minutes away and also offers a spa, off road driving, quad biking activities and restaurant facilities.
    For the adventurous, there are numerous cycle routes set out in stunning Forestry Commission surroundings, and cycle hire is available at these centres. Sailing can be enjoyed via the local marina, and for those happy to travel slightly further afield, there is the Galloway Sailing Centre where visitors can also try windsurfing, canoeing and power boating. From Stranraer, 15 miles, there is the ferry service to Northern Ireland for a day trip. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant 2½ miles, pub 2 miles.

    Nice house in very quiet setting. Great open garden but garden furniture filthy and unusable. A few complaints in visitor book about dirty greasey cooker, we also found this to be evident so never bothered with visitor book as last entries not obviously taken seriously enough by owner's. But overall a comfortable home. We also had a Fox pop in to say hello!! And the next morning a Hare.

    First visit to Glencroft, note that only downstairs is available but is fine. There was no key for the back door even though it was marked as an escape route. Note that there are two live internet cameras on the outside of the property streaming out onto the Internet all the time, security for the owners? Dog owners take note that the property has a small wooded area that is great for the dogs, note that around the cottage, there is no fence or gates along the road side so careful with your dog(s). Garden needs attention, especially the back as the grass was long and the previous cut was by strimmer leaving all the old cuttings in place. Had to mend one of the bedroom blinds as the pull cord had come off and the patio door proved problematic at times. Apart from the above, Glencroft was very comfortable and warm. Walk down the road towards the hotel and there is a small pebble beach with walks along the cliffs etc. A small drive takes you to many local attractions and some really good beaches.

    Beautiful area, very rural and isolated (just what we wanted) that being the only reason "local amenities" scored low. Cottage generally well presented and comfortable but there were no instructions for anything and the central heating was set so it was very cold in the mornings on getting up and warm during the day when we were out. Overall the cottage was clean but there were old, opened food items (crisps etc) left in the cupboards. Our only major problem was that the toilet broke after our first night and the "caretaker" number was in fact the owner who not only did not respond and keep us updated re repairs as promised, he expected us to wait in for the plumber and oversee the work....not what I went on holiday for. The owners/caretakers are actually located in England. I would recommend they ensure a local is on hand for future problems. However, all in all we enjoyed the cottage, the countryside and our holiday. A good base for sightseeing and wildlife. I even heard a badger calling one night. Thank you.

    It was perfect for us we completely chilled out so quiet it was beyond what we expected the only downside was the double bed was too small for us as we are used with a super king bed that was it. We will be back in the future

    A very comfortable cottage. Spacious and warm - well insulated. Well equipped. Only 2 miles from Port Patrick and not far from the main trunk roads.

    Lovely cottage, ideal for walking and relaxing. Lovely garden for dogs, gardener could have said he had found a 'deposit' instead of spraying with red paint. Wasn't one of ours but cleared it up in interests of hygiene. Other than that no complaints.
