We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. There are obviously local stores that can supply you with all the food you need, but we always like to arrive with coffee, tea bags, a pint of milk, a bar of chocolate and some bread and butter for the toaster - it's good to get the energy up after a long journey. We have stayed in many types of cottage, and we've decided we like both traditional and modern - it just depends on where we're going. 

Kirkcudbright Accomodation

Getting outside is one of the great benefits of staying in the countryside since so many of us live in urban centres where the air is polluted and greenery is a rarity. Great weather can never be guaranteed for every day, and there's obviously a chance of a downpour. 

Although its great to be outside in Kirkcudbright, you can often have just as much fun with your friends or family if you stay in and play some 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.

Holiday Cottages

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. It is of course possible that you need to cancel your Kirkcudbright holiday cottage so ensure you read the cancellation terms on the agency or owners website / contract. 

Although you may not be familiar with the Kirkcudbright area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. Kirkcudbright Dumfries and Galloway cottages in are not just good value, but also offer the benefits of home comforts versus a hotel. 

If you are travelling from abroad, please make sure that you have the correct visas (if required) and all the passports are up to date. 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Kirkcudbright. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Kirkcudbright. 

For others it's an opportunity to get more active, from mountain biking to cross-country running. If you're over 60, we recommend the more relaxed approach!
