    IMPORTANT - We have 6 chalets and have three listed here with separate calendars for availability. If the date you are looking for is showing unavailable here, please check the other pages. The Chalets have had a facelift for 2016 and three now have double beds while three still have twin beds. Let us know which you'd prefer and we'll try to accommodate you. Ardwell Chalets are the perfect base for anyone looking for an affordable family holiday in peaceful surroundings in beautiful South West Scotland.The six wooden chalets are situated 20 yards from the shore of Luce Bay, and face across the bay with fine views of the Galloway Hills. They are on the edge of the tiny settlement of Ardwell, and in the next village, Sandhead, there is a shop, post office, sandy beach and a friendly pub which also serves good food. Ten miles away is the busy little town of Stranraer on Loch Ryan with its leisure centre, swimming pool and other amenities while further up Loch Ryan it's possible to take a day trip to Belfast. Ardwell itself has a successful fishing shop, Ardwell Marine, as Luce Bay is particularly popular for sea fishing, especially tope -- one website even calls it "God's Country". In front of the chalets is a grassy area where children and pets can run around safely and within walking distance you can swim, paddle, sail and fish in the sea, or simply sit on the verandah and admire the peaceful rural scenery. Within walking distance are the renowned gardens of Ardwell House while The Mull of Galloway Trail, a footpath stretching 12 miles to the spectacular cliffs at Scotland's most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway, passes yards away from the chalets. As the halfway point on the Trail they make the perfect place to stay for those walking the whole path. Built of Finnish design, the chalets are very attractive both inside and out, and have a high standard of insulation meaning they maintain a comfortable temperature in hot or cold weather. Each chalet has a good-sized living room, two bedrooms (one with twin beds or a double bed and one with bunk beds), kitchenette and bathroom. They can comfortably accommodate four and by arrangement some can sleep up to six. The chalets are fully furnished and equipped with TV, electric water heater, cooker and refrigerator (ÂŁ1 electricity slot meter), duvets, pillows, cutlery, crockery, cooking and cleaning utensils. Visitors are required only to bring sheets, duvet covers, towels and pillowcases. There is adequate space beside each chalet for a car, and some people meet up with friends at our neighbouring small caravan park. Couples on their own may be interesting in nearby Ardwell House East Lodge, a perfect one-bedroom romantic getaway, details of which can also be found on Holiday Lettings.u Ardwell is located on one of the most fascinating bits of coastline in the whole of Britain. It is part of the Rhins of Galloway, the hammerhead shaped peninsula in the very south west corner of Scotland. We are blessed with two shorelines, the placid "front shore" of Luce Bay where the chalets are situated. Here the sea is protected from the prevailing south-westerly wind and is often like glass, particularly nearby Chapelrossan Bay. Three miles away across the peninsula at Ardwell Bay, it's a different story as the "back shore" looks across to Ireland and consists of a series of little used cliffs and bays with few roads leading down to them, perfect for those who love walking, wildlife and getting away from it all. The name Rhins comes from the Gaelic Na Rannaibh, meaning 'points' or 'headlands'. North to South, the Rhins of Galloway run from Milleur Point (near Kirkcolm) to the Mull of Galloway - the most Southerly point in Scotland, where a lighthouse sits atop spectacular 300-foot cliffs. Nearby the coffee shop has been landscaped into the hill and its clifftop location provides amazing views on a clear day of Ireland and the Isle of Man. The effects of the Gulf Stream mean it has an extremely mild climate and there are no less than six gardens -- many with sub-tropical plants and all of them different within a 20-minute drive -- including Ardwell Gardens, which are a 10-minute walk away, or further if you take the scenic route along the lochside and stop off to feed the ducks and the swans. Three miles away Port Logan was the setting for the TV show "2,000 Acres of Sky" and it is also home to the unique Logan Fish Pond where you can feed tame fish. Short stays welcome. Great for Dog Owners, Families with young children, Anglers, Cyclists, Walkers. Fantastic picturesque views and enchanting woodland walks

                                        Pretty East Lodge is a perfect romantic getaway set on a private country estate with stunning views across tranquil Luce Bay to the front and woodland to the rear. The former gatehouse of the 18th century Ardwell House on the Ardwell Estate is a listed building which has been lovingly converted into an attractive, one-bedroomed cottage. Guests can enjoy free access to the Estate grounds -- a popular visitor attraction due to its range of exotic flora, walled garden, ponds and enchanting woodland walks. Keen anglers also have the opportunity to fish in the Estate's loch, which is well stocked with good-sized rainbow trout. The Lodge has a small modern fitted kitchen, a lounge/dining area with open log fire (wood provided), a double bedroom and a bathroom. The central heating is activated by an open fire but an electric radiator and fan heaters are provided for instant heat. In some circumstances we can arrange for it to be lit an hour before you expect to arrive. To the rear is an enclosed south-facing garden with wooden decking and garden furniture perfect for sitting out and enjoying the views. The Ardwell Estate is located halfway down the most westerly peninsula of Galloway, known as the Rhins, a Gaelic word meaning headlands. The Lodge has views across Luce Bay to the Galloway Hills and from the kitchen you can see the nearby Chapel Rossan Bay and, on a clear day, the Isle of Man. The Rhins is only three miles wide at this point and the "back shore" or west coast offers stunning coastal scenery with a series of cliffs and secluded bays offering glorious sunsets and views across to Ireland. The area is famous for its wild landscapes and warm, mild climate making it home to spectacular gardens such as Ardwell and the world famous Logan Botanical Gardens. The geography of the region makes it a haven for a wide range of wildlife and a popular spot for birdwatchers and anglers. From the Lodge a new path leads less than 200 yards away to the shore where walkers can take the Mull of Galloway Coastal Path from the Lodge 11 miles to Scotland's most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway, with spectacular views of Ireland and the Isle of Man on a clear day. Just outside the secluded garden is the famous Murder Stone, marking the site of a 16th Century murder. Although the Lodge is self-catering, the area has some fantastic places to eat. The village of Sandhead, with its seven miles of beautiful sandy beaches is three miles away, is home to a pub and restaurant and the Streatery, offering unique gourmet street food. The picturesque fishing village of Portpatrick is only a short drive away with several pubs and restaurants offering a good range of high quality food, especially seafood. Further afield, the Galloway Forest Park is famous for its dark skies, and Glentrool is one of the most stunning glens in the whole of Scotland with its viewpoint from Bruce's Stone high above Loch Trool. Anyone who lives in a town will be struck by how much clearer the stars are on a clear night. The cottage is only one-bedroomed so we can only accept a maximum of two guests and one pet, or at a push two small pets. If you have children and pets then our beachside Holiday Chalets 200 yards away may suit you better. They can also be found on Holiday Lettings (6125323)

                                        IMPORTANT - We have 6 chalets and have three listed here with separate calendars for availability. If the date you are looking for is showing unavailable here, please check the other pages. This is an identical listing to the others for Ardwell Chalets but you will find more pictures on the main Ardwell Chalets listing under Mull of Galloway. Although we have six chalets this website only allows us to book one chalet for each listing before marking them as unavailable so we have chosen to list three separately. The Chalets are the perfect base for anyone looking for an affordable family holiday in peaceful surroundings in beautiful South West Scotland.The six wooden chalets are situated 20 yards from the shore of Luce Bay, and face across the bay with fine views of the Galloway Hills. They are on the edge of the tiny settlement of Ardwell, and the next village, Sandhead, has a shop, post office, a child-friendly pub which also serves good food and seven miles of sandy beach. Ten miles away is the busy little town of Stranraer on Loch Ryan with its leisure centre, swimming pool and other amenities. In front of the chalets is a grassy area where children and pets can run around safely and within walking distance you can swim, paddle, sail and fish in the sea, or simply sit on the verandah and admire the peaceful rural scenery. Within walking distance are the renowned gardens of Ardwell House while The Mull of Galloway Trail, a footpath stretching 12 miles to the spectacular cliffs at Scotland's most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway, passes yards away from the chalets. Built of Finnish design, the chalets are very attractive both inside and out, and have a high standard of insulation meaning they maintain a comfortable temperature in hot or cold weather. Each chalet has a good-sized living room, two bedrooms (one with twin beds and one with bunk beds), kitchenette and bathroom. They can comfortably accommodate four and by arrangement some can sleep up to six. The chalets are fully furnished and equipped with TV, electric water heater, cooker and refrigerator (ÂŁ1 electricity slot meter), duvets, pillows, cutlery, crockery, cooking and cleaning utensils. Visitors are required only to bring sheets, duvet covers, towels and pillowcases. There is adequate space beside each chalet for a car, and some people meet up with friends at our neighbouring small caravan park. We also have a one-bedroom cottage 200 yards away at Ardwell House East Lodge, which is listed separately on Holiday Lettings. The website only allows us to book one chalet before marking them all unavailable so chalets are listed separately. Ardwell is located on one of the most fascinating bits of coastline in the whole of Britain. It is part of the Rhins of Galloway, the hammerhead shaped peninsula in the very south west corner of Scotland. We are blessed with two shorelines, the placid "front shore" of Luce Bay where the chalets are situated. Here the sea is protected from the prevailing south-westerly wind and is often like glass, particularly nearby Chapelrossan Bay. Three miles away across the peninsula at Ardwell Bay, it's a different story as the "back shore" looks across to Ireland and consists of a series of little used cliffs and bays with few roads leading down to them, perfect for those who love walking, wildlife and getting away from it all. The name Rhins comes from the Gaelic Na Rannaibh, meaning 'points' or 'headlands'. North to South, the Rhins of Galloway run from Milleur Point (near Kirkcolm) to the Mull of Galloway - the most Southerly point in Scotland, where a lighthouse sits atop spectacular 300-foot cliffs. Nearby the coffee shop has been landscaped into the hill and its clifftop location provides amazing views on a clear day of Ireland and the Isle of Man. The effects of the Gulf Stream mean it has an extremely mild climate and there are no less than six gardens -- many with sub-tropical plants and all of them different within a 20-minute drive -- including Ardwell Gardens, which are a 10-minute walk away, or further if you take the scenic route along the lochside and stop off to feed the ducks and the swans. Three miles away Port Logan was the setting for the TV show "2,000 Acres of Sky" and it is also home to the unique Logan Fish Pond where you can feed tame fish.

Outside the raised deck has a gate at the top of the stairs so it's a safe, enclosed space if there are small children about. There's a picnic table and a garden bench and it's a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the beautiful view over the Irish Sea. The house has an enclosed garden with pretty shrubs. There's also a parking area for approximately three cars. Portpatrick is a charming fishing port - not dissimilar to a Cornish village with the focal point around the harbour and houses perched on the surrounding headland. The village has a good selection of restaurants and pubs from Campbells, which serves excellent seafood and the Michelin Star Knockinaam Lodge to the Fernhill and the Crown, plus there are a number of cafes and shops. There's an 18 hole golf course as well as a putting green, tennis courts and a pretty sandy beach. It's a great base for walking - with pretty cliff top walks at the start of the Southern Upland Way, which starts from Portpatrick, and in the woods in the nearby Dunskey Estate. There's fishing to be had in the harbour or by chartering one of the local fishing boats and heading out into the Irish Sea for the day. There are sandy beaches a plenty near Portpatrick itself - so it's a perfect destination for bucket and spade type holidays.

Reviewed on: 01/06/2016 for their stay in 12/2015 Arranging the holiday was easy and straight forward as was collecting the keys etc. We all loved the cottage and the quiet, picturesque harbour of Portpatrick. Galloway Cottage is well stocked and furnished to a high standard with a welcoming wood burner in the living room. The beds are comfortable and cozy and there is a selection of DVDs or games and Wifi, so everyone in our party was happy. There is also a sizeable, secure walled garden that would be useful in the summer. There are lovely pubs in Portpatrick and fabulous clifftop walks which we enjoyed during our short stay. We would definitely stay there again Guest AccessThe full property will be yours, including exclusive access to the enclosed garden. The NeighborhoodThe Dumfries and Galloway region Dumfries & Galloway isn’t just the home of Robert Burns. If you enjoy the outdoors, the region offers something for everyone, where the hills, rivers and forest park provide a landscape that is ideal to be explored by foot, bike or boat. There are a huge variety of walking routes, including hill walks, forest trails and coastal routes. Dumfries and Galloway also has Scotland’s longest walking route and several walking festivals. The Southern Upland Way starts in Portpatrick and continues for 212 miles, all the way to the east coast! Five of the ‘7 stanes’ mountain bike trails are situated in Dumfries & Galloway: Kirroughtree, Glentrool, Mabie, Dalbeattie and Ae. Kirroughtree is only a 50 minute drive from the cottage, so you can plan your journey to and from Portpatrick to take in some of the most rewarding trails the UK can offer. There are also hundreds of miles of sign-posted routes throughout the region, for those who prefer their wheels to be on the road. Places of interest to visit within easy reach:- •Galloway Forrest Park - covering 150,000 acres of stunning scenery •Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and Tearoom - Scotland's most southerly point •Port Logan Fish Pond – were 2000 Acres of Sky was filmed •Logan Botanical Gardens – Scotland’s most exotic garden! •Wigtown – Scotland’s National Book Town with its book festival in Sept/Oct •Newton Stewart - known for its fishing on the River Cree and annual May walking festival •Castle Douglas – famous for its specialist shops and Stewartry Agricultural Show in August Portpatrick Portpatrick, often acknowledged as the regions jewel in the crown, is a town of pastel-coloured houses (including The Galloway Cottage) set around a small bay with cliffs forming the backdrop. Within the town, there are some great places to eat and drink. Being located in the heart of the town, there is no need to take a car, hire a taxi or take a precarious cliff top walk in the dark. Just enjoy your night and ‘dander’ back to the cottage! Lifeboat week is in July/August and the Portpatrick Folk Festival is a three-day celebration of folk music in September. Both are always lively fun affairs with a laid back and family friendly atmosphere and well worth visit. The village of Portpatrick boasts it's own beach, only a stones throw from the cottage, plus secluded coves and bays within a few minutes walk. For those with cars and bikes there are even more beauty spots up and down the peninsula. Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Club has an 18 and a 9 hole golf course with spectacular views and on clear days the Isle of Man, Mourne Mountains and Mull of Kintyre can be seen. There’s also a putting green in the town for a bit of fun. Other leisure activities in the town include tennis, bowling and fishing and in Stranraer there is an indoor swimming pool and curling in the winter. The nearby Dunskey Estate is also worth a visit with its Tearoom, Walled Garden, Dunskey Maze, Glen Walks and fly fishing. It will also be open in February when it opens for the Snowdrop Festival. Other Things to NoteThere is also a garage to the rear of the property, handy for securely storing kayaks, canoes, bikes, golf clubs etc. Pets are welcome - please contact the owner/Homesure for further information
