Garlieston Cottage, Wigtown - Sleeps 6
Garlieston Cottage has a Victorian, fairytale charm to it. Situated within the stone, walled garden of a private country estate, it nestles beside woodland, an orchard and a paddock with rare breed sheep, Indian Runner ducks and hens. It has a large lawn with mature shrubs and trees, herbaceous borders, and its very own open air swimming pool.

The area was settled in Neolithic times though Wigtown, as a name, first appears in 1330, after which it has a remarkably turbulent history. For hundreds of years it disappears and reappears as its port and agricultural economy see-sawed dramatically.
It features in the Wars of Independence with England and in 'The Killing Times' of the Covenanters in the Seventeenth Century. During the latter, two women were famously and publicly drowned, tied to stakes as the tide came in. They later received martyr status and are honoured by statues today.
It is all a dramatic backdrop for twenty-first century Wigtown, a thriving leisure town with virtually no crime and most noted for its scenery, arts, climate and Book Festival. It is Scotland's only Official Book Town.
