With the sitting room on the third floor, visitors can enjoy the fabulous views over the river in addition to their beautiful riverside garden with private mooring for small boats. There are also a number of tempting shops, pubs and restaurants in the village.

Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam. 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 – 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.More
