There are a variety of gardens, including Logan Botanic, Glenwhan & Castle Kennedy, to mention a few.

The village of Portpatrick, with its good selection of pubs, restaurants and picturesque harbour is only 15 minutes drive from Sandhead, also Stranraer is only 15 minutes drive and has a selection of supermarkets and swimming pool.

There are 3 golf courses in the area, all of which welcome visitors, also a Bowling Green in Sandhead and Portpatrick (or putting in Portpatrick)
