General

  • Luxury snugs with spectacular coastal views
  • Individually designed snugs with ensuite
  • On-site café and free wifi

Snuggle down among splendid scenery on Scotland's south coast hills with a stay at Gatehouse of Fleet's GG's Yard, a site with cosy 'snug' lodges on a 250-year-old converted steading.

The snugs at this new for 2016 site are individually designed comfy and swish lodges each sleeping two, and each coming with a kingsize bed made up with fine linen, an ensuite shower room with mirror and shaving sockets, and – absolutely best of all, as you'll see when you get there – glass-fronted patio doors so you can see the spectacular view at any time (and lie in bed at night underneath the stars twinkling above).

The snugs are also equipped with utensils for a brew and guests can have breakfast at the onsite Basecamp Café. Picnic baskets and barbecues in the secluded hut on the hill can be organised for an extra charge.

The site has free wifi.

    Had a lovely time staying here. The snugs were so cosy and well decorated with a beautiful view to wake up to, really relaxing. The staff were brilliant, they were really friendly and helpful. The cafe they had had really yummy food and was top quality. The activities were fun really impressed with this place.

    Disliked: 

    We asked about a key we didn't have and they didn't sort it out. But we still felt safe with out it.

    Loved the snug we stayed in, spacious, beautifully decorated and had an amazing view. They have really made the most of the surrounding views with the large patio windows that take up the majority of the wall overlooking the sea.
    The site has great activities. My boyfriend and I spent most of the day doing activities from off road Segway's to waterballing!
    The staff are great. Helpful, friendly and made our stay the best possible.

    Disliked: 

    There are a few things that need some work but they recognise this themselves. It is all mentioned in the welcome booklet.
    WiFi works but sometimes loses connection in the snugs.

Local attractions

You might not want to leave your snug given its views, but when you do stir off site more of the same are all over the thousands of acres' worth of spectacular Dumfries and Galloway surroundings.

Anyone who wants to keep busy has heaps of options in the region, from family activity centres and adventure centres to many fab walking and mountain biking trails, like the famed 7stanes about half an hour away.

Championship golf courses like Brighouse Bay are easy to get to from here too – and those who fancy fishing will find easy catches around the River Fleet and the Gatehouse of Fleet bay.

Particularly recommended by the GG's Yard team are the Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum, set in a watch tower just outside Dumfries; visiting the several castles and gardens in the area like the Threave Estate, Drumlanrig Castle and Castle Kennedy, or simply chilling out on site with occasional trips to investigate the local ice cream and rides at amusement park Cream o' Galloway.

Must see

  • John Paul Jones Cottage Museum & Visitor Centre (27.2 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (29.8 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
