Many holiday cottages to discover!
Combining a change from the norm with classic home comforts is an irresistible offer - and why cottage holidays have become so popular. The vast majority of our self-catering properties are cottages in rural towns and villages, but we do have some city based properties, many of which are apartments.
Large or small cottage, holiday makers have the freedom to eat in, eat out, stay in bed all day and generally come and go as they please - unlike a bed and breakfast. Pet-friendly cottages in Kirkcudbright are on the rise however we do recommend that you ask in advance - unless it's stated on the booking details. We often have late availability offers on holiday cottages for family or group bookings but you'll obviously get a restricted choice.
Cottage prices in Kirkcudbright will range from high to low throughout the year, but clearly the summer months will be the most expensive as remand increases. The school summer holidays generally run from the middle of July to late August.
Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. It's becoming less likely to book the best cottages last minute, but by no means impossible. We recommend you give it a try.
Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.
Whether you're going away with friends or family to Kirkcudbright, you'll want to consider the type of accommodation you book. If you have young kids in the party you may want to think twice about open fires, and of course some of the oldest cottages may have lower ceilings than those you are used to.
Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Kirkcudbright cottage. Not all places will welcome pets so please make sure that it's either clearly marked on the booking website, or if not drop a quick line to the owner to make sure.
Don't forget to make the most of your Dumfries and Galloway holiday - none of us get enough of them!
Families, Friends and More
The best part of going on holiday with a family is the sense of comfort you all get when walking into a Kirkcudbright holiday cottage - where everything there is designed to make your stay better! Youngsters are always excited about self-catering breaks, but we've collated a short list of things to help it go smoothly!
First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Kirkcudbright will carry tear-free shampoo. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Kirkcudbright much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions.
You'll need to think about a few of their favourite books and games to help them feel at home in the cottage and settle in for a good nights sleep.
