A charming, semi-detached cottage bordered by the sea, with primrose woods, cliffs and castles nearby.
One of a pair of original gardener’s cottages, Shore Cottage is a traditional stone holiday cottage with an enclosed garden only yards from the secluded, tree-lined, sandy beach at Rigg Bay. This charming cottage, on the edge of the original walled garden of Galloway House, retains many period features. It has been refurbished in 2019 in an airy, comfortable style with a subtle mixture of Scottish, seaside and garden cottage themed rooms.
Beachcombers will love this location, as will writers, painters, nature and garden visitors, activity seekers or honeymooners. Attractive walks for all ages and abilities start from your door, and you can head south on the shore path through primrose woods to Cruggleton Cliffs and the castle beyond. Or head north towards Garlieston village via the woodland garden and arboretum of Galloway House Gardens, famous for its spring display of azaleas and rhododendrons.
Golf and fishing are within easy reach, as are the Galloway Hills and the world class 7Stanes mountain bike trails. Wigtown, Scotland’s book town, as well as Whithorn, the cradle of early British Christianity, and the harbour villages of Isle of Whithorn and Port William, are a short drive or cycle ride away on quiet roads.
