About Creel Cottage

Creel Cottage is a freshly renovated self-catering property in a fantastic waterfront location. Nothing detracts from breathtaking views of Ross Bay which, on a clear day, reach across the Solway as far south as the Lake District and Skiddaw. The 4-Star property sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms and is ideal for couples, families or friends who want uninterrupted access to the best sights at attractions in the area.

Scotland's south-west is wild and beautiful. The coast is lined with beaches of soft powdery sand, while rugged hills and cliffs give intrepid climbers far-reaching views. A great way for visitors to get their bearings is to walk to Miekle Ross where they can see Little Ross Island and lighthouse. Creel Cottage is steps from the beach with wonderful walks and bike rides from the front door.

This area is the ideal holiday destination for all seasons. Being so far north means long summer days, giving visitors plenty of time to enjoy everything on offer from cycling along country lanes or at the award-winning 7Stanes mountain bike centre to pony-trekking around Brighouse Bay. Less intrepid explorers can discover local gardens, golf courses and nature reserves where red kites, osprey red squirrels and otters all thrive. In winter, guests can sit in front of the log burner and witness the drama of a storm playing out across the bay, then when the clouds have finished their histrionics, step outside and enjoy the clean air and exploring for treasures washed up on the shore.

Creel is one of four lovely self-catering cottages on a 500-acre family-run farm which can be booked together to accommodate groups of friends or extended family. Kirkcudbright is the nearest major town, providing a wide array of places to eat, drink and shop, and Galloway is also within reach. Local attractions include museums and galleries, adventure centres and distilleries, while restaurants range from welcoming country pubs serving produce grown within just a few miles, to Michelin starred restaurants.

Scotland's landscape is one of magnificent extremes, from soft green meadows to craggy cliffs and this contrast is wonderfully evident around Ross Bay. Visitors can spend all day sightseeing and being active, or move no further from the cottage to the garden to sit under vast skies in serenity.
