Many holiday cottages to discover!
Whenever you're travelling to Kirkcudbright, there are a few things you should always take with you. Rainproof clothing and a light umbrella should be the first things to pack. The rain only comes when you are not prepared.
If you like watching films and there's a DVD facility in the cottage then it's a good idea to stock up on some good movies so you can spend a couple of nights enjoying the classics. And then we always make sure we have good supplies with us when we arrive so that we can sit down and have a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of cake before we start that boring unpacking! We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for.
Benefits of staying in a county cottage include being able to jump out of the front door and take part in outdoor pursuits from walking to horse riding, and from fishing to paddling. As we all know, the weather isn't always idyllic - in fact it can be largely unpredictable.
When the weather takes a turn for the worse its a great time to stay indoors and play some classic family games. Cottage owners sometimes leave a few distractions around the property, such as local magazines or guidebooks.
Or you can just embrace the weather and get out there in a raincoat, splash about, and pretend that you really are still young.
Our site does not make reservations directly and so we ask that any queries you have with the Kirkcudbright cottage are taken up with the owner or agency. Nearly all country cottages have free parking near the property, but you may find the urban cottages to have more parking restrictions.
The cottage owners may leave some hints for good places to visit nearby and on occasion we've even found that they'll suggest a specific pub or restaurant where you can get a discount. Kirkcudbright has long been popular as a place to stay and we encourage you to investigate the surrounding area as much as possible.
We hope you have a really enjoyable holiday in Kirkcudbright and remember us next year when it comes to finding the next great Dumfries and Galloway cottage.
Families, Friends and More
There are many benefits to a self-catering holiday in Kirkcudbright. We like the freedom of eating meals when we want. There's something wrong with taking a holiday and then finding out that you have to get up early or you miss the breakfast you've paid for.
And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. Waking up without the alarm, cooking a nice hearty breakfast, perhaps sitting by the river for a spot of fishing or just reading a book.
For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
