Town: Situated on the Solway Firth, the small, country town of Gatehouse of Fleet is a peaceful place, decorated in pretty pastel colours. Set in the gorgeous Dumfries and Galloway countryside and within five minutes drive of beautiful sandy beaches, there is also a loch and the opportunity to try river fishing. Founded in around 1760, the town was originally a mill community and today a visitors' centre set in the former bobbin mill - Mill on the Fleet â tells the story of Gatehouse's cotton spinning days. The town now boasts several shops, including a baker, butcher, grocer, bank and post office whilst a number of the pubs also serve food and welcome children.

Very comfortable, clean, bright accommodation in a
building full of character. Has been beautifully
decorated by the owners. Very handy spot for local
child friendly pubs and restaurants.
Good local cycling nearby , Cream'O'Galloway Farm
for ice-cream tours, adventure playground and cycle
tracks a great hit with the kids and Carrick Bay a
lovely secluded family beach.
Liked being in the centre of town - only thing
missing for us was a garden for the kids to play in
- but there are a couple of large parks within
Found web-site easy to navigate and rental was
handled efficiently by Sykes Cottages.
