Smuggler's Den Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Smuggler's Den is a stylish first floor apartment overlooking the harbour in Isle of Whithorn. There is a double bedroom, a bathroom and an open plan living area with fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is off road parking for one car. The amenities of Isle of Whithorn are on the doorstep of Smuggler's Den, with opportunities for sea fishing, golf, walking and exploring the book town of Wigtown, making this a wonderful year-round couples' retreat.

Although it is no longer an island the village of Isle of Whithorn still retains the name as a link to its historic past. The village lies by the harbour on the southern tip of the Machars Peninsula, and the area has been designated as an outstanding conservation area. The village has a rich history, and trading from the port dates back to Viking times and there are the remains of a 13th Century chapel at the end of the harbour. This region is steeped in ancient and modern history and there are countless sites of historical interest to visit, from Iron Age and Mesolithic Forts to standing stones. This area is a fascinating region and makes a great base for a family holiday.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

New area for us to visit. Great views over the harbour, pub next door, good food and friendly. Loads of dog walks nearby which is very important to us. Really lovely apartment.

Everything about Smuggler's Den was perfect, from the location to the accommodation. The owner has done a wonderful job of providing quality accommodation, we will definitely be returning to Smuggler's Den.

Me and my dog got a really warm welcome when we arrived, the apartment was comfortable and clean, and the view over the bay was beautiful. The pub next door serves good food and beer, and it is dog friendly as well. I would highly recommend the Smuggler's Den.

The flat was in a superb location, with a great view of the harbour and next door to the pub. We liked the 'get away from it all feeling,' rather like being on an island but able to get off at will. We were able to relax in a comfortable and clean flat which was suitable to our needs.

The property was first class and the owners were extremely friendly and always on hand. This made the holiday superb quality.

This is the fourth time we have been to this location and as usual it was peaceful and relaxing and also the weather was kind to us.
