The cottage is delightful with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. There are plenty of good eating places if you don't want to cook. We ate at the Selkirk Hotel, the castle restaurant & the auld alliance and all were great with good choices. We also had a takeaway from polar Bites which was generous.
There's plenty to do in the area. The weather wasn't the greatest but the cottage had a good tumble dryer and tiled floors, so easy to keep clean.
Also great if you like art with lots of galleries.
Just returned from the most wonderful 4 day stay at Yellow Door..and am having real withdrawal symptoms!! It is everything "it says on the tin" and more besides!! If what you need is to chill in comfortable, high end accommodation and soak up the artistic atmosphere of today and yesteryear ...then the Yellow Door in Kirkudbright is for you..secluded in the old town and within walking distance of shops good restaurants and lots of art and history.Beautifully appointed and maintained..Will definitely revisit very soon!!!! A REAL GEM!!
We stayed at Yellow Door for the week before Christmas and had a lovely time. Not only is this a charming and comfortable cottage, the town is delightful. There are great places to eat (Station House Cafe, Selkirk Arms, Polar Bites) and plenty to see - art centre, harbour, castle. We had some great mountain-biking in the Galloway Forest and plan to come back in the summer.
Situated through a 'close' off the high street (not a shopping street) this 3 storey 2 bedroom accommodation is of a very high standard. We were given a warm welcome by Patricia and the little extra touches ie the chocolates biscuits and crisps were a lovely surprise. The vase of white roses and daisies made the house particularly homely.
The house is extremely well furnished. Everything is there to make your stay comfortable and the wood burning fire meant we were never cold in spite of the weather we had ( the tail end of hurricane Ophelia ). Both bedrooms are en-suite and have TVs The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary tools and dishes and the fridge is big enough for all we needed for our weeks stay.
