Crofton is tucked away towards the western end of Gatehouse of Fleet enjoying a private semi-rural location in substantial garden grounds with additional amenity woodland enjoying abundant wildlife, yet not far from the town itself.
The property has been tastefully refurbished by the current proprietors, is in excellent decorative order and benefits from double glazing complemented with a Clearview cast iron stove, double glazing and contemporary fitted kitchen and shower room.
Gatehouse of Fleet is a charming Galloway conservation village. A previous landowner was enlightened in relation to development and insisted that when land was sold off for building it was not subject to high density development.
Accordingly a lot of the newer housing in Gatehouse of Fleet tends to be in groupings with low density housing and what are now very mature and attractive garden grounds. Essential facilities are immediately available in Gatehouse of Fleet – there are several good hotels and restaurants, medical practice, primary school, a well-stocked Spar shop with extended opening hours and a second well-stocked grocery store with several other retail and service outlets. There are many good walking and cycle routes in and around Gatehouse of Fleet set in an area of real natural beauty with the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area, Galloway Forest Park and the rugged Galloway coastline which are all easily accessible.
How to get there
To reach Crofton from the west, exit from the A75 (Cardoness Castle), travel about 0.5 miles from the A75 and take the second turning left at Vinnie Hill, just where the main road takes a sharp turn and essentially becomes the main street/High Street of Gatehouse of Fleet. At this sharp bend, drive straight on along a single track road which is publicly maintained until you reach a left bend, when it becomes a private road and having turned left, follow the road up Planetree Park where there is a bench straight ahead and the road splits.
Take the right fork, continue through the gap in the wall over the cattle grid and Crofton presents on your left.
