About No.7 Sandhead

No. 7 Sandhead puts you close to one of the most beautiful beaches in the south-west of Scotland. With space for four people in two bedrooms, the cottage is within walking distance of Sandhead's beach and village shop, as well as the renowned Tigh Na Mara Hotel which has a bar, beer garden and a more formal restaurant. No 7. Sandhead is ideal for couples, friends or families, offering very comfortable accommodation in a fantastic location.

Those who have never visited the south-west coast of Scotland before are often surprised at the mildness of the climate. The Gulf Stream's warming air makes it feel almost tropical at times - a feature that is particularly noticeable at places like Ardwell Gardens and the Logan Botanic Gardens, both of which are just a few miles from the cottage. A walk along the beach is a treat at any time of the year, and because No. 7 Sandhead is pet-friendly, you can bring your favourite four-legged friends along for a holiday in the knowledge that they will feel very much at home. Another popular walking route is the Mull of Galloway Trail which goes through Sandhead on its way between Mull and nearby Stranraer, but there are enough miles of footpaths and routes to cycle in and around the area to satisfy even the most energetic of visitors, offering spectacular coastal or countryside views.

Golf, fishing, kiteboarding and land surfing are all available either in Sandhead or nearby. It is possible to arrange deep-sea fishing trips and boat tours in the seaside village of Portpatrick, a 15-minute drive away, or in Stranraer, which is even closer. Stranraer is an excellent place to shop for provisions for your self-catering holiday as it has supermarkets and a range of independent shops, cafes and boutiques. Spend a day in Stranraer browsing the shops and visiting places like the creepy Castle of St. John, Agnew Park and Castle Kennedy Gardens.

The sea air and relaxing atmosphere at Sandhead will immediately put you at ease, giving you the holiday you deserve whether you stay for a long weekend, a week or even longer.
