We have just spent a wonderful week at Rattra Cottage. What a fantastic location right in the heart of the village. Although parking is tight we still managed with quite a large car. The cottage was very clean, spacious but still cosy with plenty of storage space. The outside seating area was very welcome as we had such good weather....

Management response:

Thank you for writing a great review. Glad that you were able to enjoy some time outside on the patio. It's a very peaceful spot in spite of being just round the corner from all the shops and amenities.

Rattra is a lovely, not so little cottage right in the centre of Kirkcudbright. With three decent bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower room, it's got plenty of family space. The owners are extremely helpful. Parking is fine for a reasonably sized car, and there's a nice bit of outside space. Despite being in the centre of the town, it's very...

Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The central location was perfect for easy access to shops, galleries, harbour and dog walking. Three teenage girls used the upstairs rooms and bathroom with adults in the downstairs double room, where the shower room was small but adequate. The extra sitting area in the sun room was a bonus. The kitchen was well equipped. The wifi was not always...

Management response:

Glad to hear Rattra Cottage suited you and your family and that you enjoyed its location near all the amenities. The downstairs shower room is indeed 'wee' but provides a useful facility for people who are unable to get up the stairs to the main bathroom. I hope you choose Kirkcudbright for a holiday again soon.

About the neighborhood
It is no coincidence that so many artists have chosen Kirkcudbright as their place of residence. Everywhere you turn there is a view worthy of painting and the town has changed little in the past 200 years so retains much of its original charm. Rattra Cottage is in a wonderful location right in the centre of Kirkcudbright within walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In the High Street itself you will find galleries, craftshops, artists studios, a close leading to the marina and riverside views. There is also a 16th century castle just around the corner opposite the harbour. A range of facilities are available in the town such as a swimming pool and golf course and on the outskirts of town there is even a wildlife conservation park. A little further afield there are several beau... more
