    Be relaxed, restful and calm at this gem of a cottage which is named after a nearby hill in the Galloway Forest Park. If you don’t want to venture out and explore this beautiful area of Dumfries and Galloway, this terraced cottage has it all and more - comfortable sofas, a bluetooth speaker, a Smart TV, free Wi-Fi and a variety of books, games and guidebooks. The property is also dog friendly.
    Knocktinkle has been lovingly created within this beautiful, listed Georgian former schoolhouse, which was built in the 1790s. 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. Once known locally as the ‘Glasgow of the South’, the village used to have a thriving industry with cotton mills, shipbuilding, a brewery and its own port. Nowadays, its rich past can only be seen in the street names and inside the former textile mill, The Mill on the Fleet, which now houses exhibitions. There are many attractions in and around the town including the Mill on the Fleet Visitor Centre, Cardoness Castle and the popular Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre, home to one of Europe’s longest zip wires. For a more laid back day, there are delightful beaches just a few minutes’ drive, including Mossyard and Carrick. The area has numerous walks available, from scenic coastal walks to forest trails. Together with sailing, swimming, riding, fishing, golf, boat trips and water sports close by, there is something for everyone. The area is warmed by the Gulf Stream, and many beautiful gardens flourish here, including Threave Gardens (National Trust). Knocktinkle is close to the Galloway Forest Park, the first Dark Sky Park in Europe, and being central to five of the 7Stanes, at Kirroughtree Forest and Dalbeattie Forest, it is a popular location for cyclists and mountain bikers. Kirroughtree has some of the best technical single track mountain bike trails in Scotland. Only a short drive away is Kirkcudbright, known as ‘the artists’ town’, which attracts visitors throughout the year who are drawn by the harbour, the historic high street and the diverse range of annual events and visitor attractions. The popular programme of summer festivities culminates with a spectacular tattoo - an event not to be missed! Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
    Knocktinkle can be booked together with Granary (UK5242) and Willow (UK5244) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    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!

    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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our week at this well equipped cottage. Whilst the weather was mixed, particularly with Storm Ali passing in the middle of the week, we still managed to find plenty of activities. We ate several times at the Masonic Arms and tried to eat at the Scone Kitchen. Unfortunately the latter seemed closed more than it was open. It seems that at least one of the other recommended restaurants seems to have closed in the last month. We had also been given advice to avoid another by a local resident. Still this did not diminish our enjoyment. Parking seems to be a problem. This was not by visitors but by the next door neighbour's cars. Not sure why they did not park outside their own property. In summer we could imagine parking would be a problem with visitors to the village.
