Little Boreland Holiday Home, SW Scotland (Dumfries & Galloway)

Little Boreland Holiday Home, SW Scotland (Dumfries & Galloway),
a one week stay for up to 5 adults and 2 children, out of the main holiday season 2022

This late 18th century former farmhouse, ‘a little gem’, is set apart in its own tranquil, wildlife-filled garden alongside its own woodland. Walks from the front door lead up into the hills from where there are spectacular views across the Fleet Estuary and Bay, a short drive away.

The house, a few minutes' walk from the small conservation town of Gatehouse of Fleet, is an ideal base for all ages from which to explore the beautiful, unspoilt Fleet Valley National Scenic Area and the rest of Galloway with its castles, abbeys, and prehistoric sites to specialist gardens, thanks to the mild climate. There are also activity centres for the young. Kirkcudbright, the ‘artists’ town’, is among a number of attractive towns and villages in Galloway. For further information, photos and reviews visit

Included are linen, towels, utilities, central heating plus free logs for the open fires. A winter fuel supplement of £30 p/w applies between October to March (inclusive).

Sold for £620
