Fish House description

Holiday home
Fish House is a lovely detached cottage situated close to the town of Kirkcudbright just twenty five miles from Dumfries. The cottage can sleep eight people in one king-size double bedroom with en-suite shower, one double, one twin and one children's bunk together with two bathrooms. Also in the cottage is a kitchen and sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside is ample off road parking and a front garden across the road with furniture. Fish House is set in an isolated location with fantastic views.

The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the tidal waters of the River Dee, on the north Solway shore. Established as a Royal burgh in 1455, giving it status to trade with ports outside Scotland, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade and is home to a blue flag marina.

Oil central heating and underfloor heating in bathrooms and woodburner. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, 2 x TVs (one with FreeSat, one for video use only), DVD, CD, WiFi, selection of books, games, children's videos and DVDs. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Highchair and travel cot available. Off road parking for 3 cars. Front garden with furniture. One well-behaved pet welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 2 miles. Note: The garden is on the other side of the road from the house, across a busy road and care should be taken. Note: There is a drop from the lawn onto the sand and again care should be taken. Note: Swimming is not advised from the garden; Dhoon Bay, a popular local swimming beach, is about 10 minutes walk from the house. Note: There can be shooting in the local area during the months of October, November, December and January. Note: Max 6 adults.

1. I'm a Ms not Mr.. (no big deal !) 2. I'm actually a Native of Kirkcudbright and this is my first time "home" 3. I'm glad I choose Fish House for my trip, this is really a marvelous cottage that surprise us, it's more than expected vs the photo we seen at the website. The kitchen is big and got everything we need (well equipped), the living room and all 4 bed room are well furnished, clean and decorated that make us feel we at home, the side of the cottage can park 2-3 cars , really convenience. check in/out are all by yourself , very easy . the view/site are beautiful.. this cottage make my trip warm and fruitful. this cottage definitely suit for family and group of people, surely a place worth to stay and recommend , thank you !! I will rate this place 9.9 (no one is perfect)

The shower in the en-suite did not have any cold water running through it.. But the real issue for me was the wifi the cottage is advertised with free wifi.There is a bt hub there with password,but none of my party could connect to it. I have a disabled son who relies on his iPad for entertainment, so the wifi is one of the reasons for booking this cottage. If it wasn't for another member of our party bringing their own mobile wifi it could have been a ruined holiday for us.

Lovely house, very well equipped.. Beautiful view of the estuary from the little garden across the road. Lots to see in Kirkcudbright.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fish House, and the communication from both Sykes Cottages and the owners was excellent.. As a party of five adults we enjoyed the three bathrooms and two sitting rooms. The cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished with care and attention. The little touches of a varied collection of books, binoculars, soap in all bathrooms, tissues, dishwasher and washing machine tablets were all welcome. The area has a lot to offer, and we would be happy to return to Fish House and book through Sykes.

The house is exceptional and met all our needs.. Unfortunately our weather was terrible (Scotland at its best) and because there are no footpaths, we always had to go in the car if we wanted to go for a wee walk. Other than that we enjoyed the relaxation and played games to pass away the time and of course a few drinks over the New Year. All in all it was a great week away.

We rented fish house as a group of 8 over the new year period 2015/16. The cottage is a spacious, tastefully renovated house with a lovely warm feel to it. It has lovely views out to sea which you can enjoy from the sofa In front of the log burner or if the weathers kind, from fish houses own garden which is situated opposite the cottage, where you can enjoy a coffee and wave at the trawler boats passing by. Kirkudbright has a great selection of bars, restaurants and shops serving local produce if cooking isn't your thing. We all had a great stay at fish house and can't wait to visit again in the near future Picture attached is where I had my coffee on New Years morning

Fish house is a home from home. Equipped with all of the things you could need, this lovingly and stylishly renovated cottage was great for our family get together. The location is amazing, and a little road to cross to the garden area with a picnic table with views across the estuary and into the sea, perfect for morning coffee, breakfast, lunch and a fish and chip supper. A bonus are some steps down to your little 'beach' area for rock pooling with space for the children to run and play. Located just outside of Kirkcudbright it is a real gem with options to go into the town, or up the coast to a larger beach area or further afield for walking and exploring. We will definitely be returning in the future.

We had a lovely time at the fish house, we had worried about the road, however at the time of year we went (end of October/beginning of November) it was very quiet.. The views were fantastic. It was magical watching the fishing boats going past and the lovely sunrises. There was lots of birdlife in the bay and surrounding the house - pheasants on the beach were a first for us! The house was lovely, very comfortable and full of interesting things.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fish House, it has been renovated to a very high standard, very tasteful and has bundles of warmth and character! It was plenty big enough for our new year reunion, with a large family table and cosy sofa in front of the fire, it comfortably slept 8 of us. It was so lovely to wake up on New Year's Day and go for a brisk walk along the sea front, perfectly peaceful and cleared the hangovers! Thanks for letting us stay in this beautiful cottage, we'll definitely be back!
