Welcome pack.\n\n Balcony with garden furniture. Enclosed courtyard with garden furniture. Private parking for 2 cars additional on street and free public car parking available. No smoking. Please note Couples family and holidaymakers bookings only. There are 3 steps to the courtyard. The property is 10 yards from an unfenced harbour therefore children must be supervised at all times. \n\n Harbour Retreat is a spacious terraced town house situated right by the harbour at Garlieston. Once part of a working mill this delightful development of houses overlooks the working harbour which is quickly becoming a centre for yachting and fishing. Harbour Retreat is situated over two floors and the master bedroom boasts its own balcony with sea views. What better way to start the day than with a morning coffee watching the boats arriving and leaving the harbour? Whilst the village itself has an excellent pub and restaurant if you want to venture further afield Newton Stewart has many excellent shops and places to eat. Wigtown known as the ’book town’ is nearby and worth a visit. \n\nHarbour Retreat is ideally placed for visiting many attractions from rugged coastlines to sandy beaches and the world famous Logan Botanic Gardens. To the side of the property there is access to a coastal path leading to Galloway House and Gardens a sandy beach at Rigg Bay where wartime Mulberry Harbours were tested and leading onto the ruins of Cruggleton Castle. At the opposite end of the pretty town having passed a delightful seafront crescent of pastel coloured fishermen’s cottages and the bowling green is another gently shelving sandy beach.\n\nThe Galloway Forest offers exceptional walking and cycling including the world famous 7Stanes cycle trail. It is also the first designated Dark Sky Park outside the USA meaning it has an exceptional quality of starry nights. Why not take a tour of the nearby Bladnoch Whisky Distillery or the Crafty Gin Distillery in Newton Stewart? There are a number of golf courses within driving distance or visit the RSPB Reserve at Drummore the most southerly village in Scotland where the sheer cliffs provide a habitat for an amazing array of birds including peregrine falcons razorbills guillemots and much more – oh – and the occasional puffin\n\nFurther to the west is Stranraer where you can get a ferry across to Northern Ireland. Stranraer is also the starting point for exploring the Rhins Peninsula with the Mull of Galloway the most southerly point of south west Scotland where you can climb the light house or visit the RSPB visitor centre. In the opposite direction is the market town of Kirkcudbright with Maclellan’s Castle right in the centre of town Warmed by the Gulf Stream this area of Scotland enjoys a mild climate.

    the property is excellent and in an excellent location if you like quiet holidays. our only problem was the hot water or lack of it. When I phoned the caretaker to ask about it she said that the cleaner must have knocked the switch off but i could use the hot water boost button located in the kitchen. She wouldn't tell me where this switch was! About 20 minutes later a man phoned me back and said that the hot water had been switched off because of the lack of bookings. Evidentally it costs to much to leave it on when the property is empty. I'm not sure why it couldn't be switched on prior to our visit though. we had to rely on switching on the boost button when we wanted a shower just in case there wasn't enough in the tank. otherwise everything was perfect.
