We were recommended to this hotel by friends and it certainly did not disappoint. The situation overlooking the Solway is superb and relaxing and the cuisine is outstanding. Plenty to see in surrounding area, including Threave Gardens [NTS] and the town of Kirkcudbright

It is a lovely secluded bay, forest tracks as well as the gardens, stretch of beach at the back of the hotel, there is also a cliff walk that can be taken from the hotel, no doubt they could supply you with more information.
