Designed to reflect the character of the property it retains as many original features as possible and is set in a quiet street in Gatehouse of Fleet a delightful village in this beautiful part of south west Scotland.

    Absolutely loved our stay at knocktinkle. Spotlessly clean throughout and so well equipped. Great location for walking and lovely pub right across the road. We had a 14 year old and a large dog with us and managed to keep everyone happy and entertained for the week!



    out of 10

    A very comfortable and exceptionally clean property that has been tastefully updated with good quality furniture, kitchen and bathroom facilities. The kitchen was well supplied with glasses, crockery and cooking utensils. A few plastic mixing bowls were the only items we were unable to find. The comprehensive supply of herbs and spices were an added bonus for keen cooks. The location was ideal for local pubs, cafes and shops and dog walks galore.

    Janet and her husband where very helpful and friendly. The local people where friendly. Great place for dogs for walking. The cottage was beautiful warm clean. The little welcome hamper was a lovely touch. I would go back again I couldn't ask for a lovely hostess they are very kind people who looked after us. The scone shop was lovely to eat in Masonic pub lovely to eat in The eatery above the Spa shop was lovely to eat in. The cottage was perfect in every way.

    Knock tinkle is beautifully presented and very comfortable. It was immaculate, There were also little touches e.g a selection of herbs, orange juice and cold beer in the fridge. It is situated in a nice part of Gatehouse of Fleet which is a nice village. Easy parking right outside the front door. We would certainly go there again.
