Nathaniel's Cottage, set in the historic conservation area of Millburn Street, Kirkcudbright, is our luxury two bedroom holiday home that we love to escape to as often as we can.
Cosying up on the sofa with morning coffee and freshly baked pancakes from Paul Jones the Bakers to enjoying fresh seafood caught that morning and bought at the harbour fishmongers are a couple of our guilty pleasures along with nights playing cards accompanied by the local Bladnoch Distillery's finest.
Waking up to seagulls and being a moments walk from the harbour is priceless. You can lose yourself with a book relaxing on the harbour green or take a stroll along the streets deciding where you'd like to lunch or browse, spoilt for choice from galleries to crafted jewellery and homemade cushions and tapestries.
Kirkcudbright's natural harbour is home to colonies of birds, fishes and even seals that you can explore on boat. The coastline is very tidal here and even over the passage of a day it is amazing to watch the changing mudflats and water levels. The tinkling bells of the boats at twilight create a romantic backdrop to the start of an evening. Even the grey of a cold bleak day can conjure up images of winters past when ships would look out for the welcoming lights of St. Marys Isle.
If this is your idea of a holiday, welcome to Nathaniel's Cottage. We hope you find the information on our pages useful and are looking forward to taking your reservation for a completely unwinding break that you will take happy holiday memories from.
