Hope Cottage is a beautifully presented traditional stone cottage has been thoughtfully renovated throughout to a high standard with many original period features retaining its character and charm. Hope Cottage is tucked away in a
quiet, yet elevated location, within the heart of Wigtown which means that the property has lovely views over Wigtown Bay and farmland beyond.
Wigtown is a pretty, traditional market town and is known worldwide as Scotland’s National Book Town, a designation that reflects its dozen or so quality bookshops and annual literary festival. Founded in 1999, the ten day Book Festival
is now one of the UK’s best loved literary events.
As well as offering a good range of local shopping and professional services, Wigtown and nearby Newton Stewart are regarded as natural bases from which to explore the Galloway Forest Park which covers a vast and sparsely populated area stretching north east. The wild landscape and extensive woodland and unspoilt coastline provide many opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
There are eight good local golf courses to choose from. The coastline offers sailing and sea fishing and there are safe anchorages at Port William and the Isle of Whithorn. The A75 provides excellent road links and there are railway stations at Stranraer and Dumfries.
The garden for Hope Cottage is a wonderful walled garden with area of lawn to the front with raised seating area. Wooden access gate to the lane outside with views of the bay and surrounding farmland beyond. There is a driveway off to the side with an access gate and to the rear there is a large stone shed/work space
with power and light currently used as a workshop.
