JULY 6th-JULY 14th: Skiffieworlds 2019.
Stranraer is hosting Skiffieworlds, the World Championship for the St Ayles Skiff class of coastal rowing boat. Demand for accommodation in this week is very high but a recent cancellation means we have limited availability.
Ardwell Chalets are the perfect base for an affordable self-catering family holiday in beautiful South West Scotland. Dogs are welcome as we are pet friendly!
The chalets are in the tiny village of Ardwell on the shore of Luce Bay with stunning views of the water and the Galloway Hills. Sandhead village with its lovely golden sandy beach, shop, post office, tea room and a family-friendly pub selling excellent food is nearby. The bustling little town of Stranraer close to the major Irish ferry ports is just 10 miles away.
Luce Bay is a renowned fishing location famous for its bass and tope so anglers can fish from the shore or sail deeper into the bay. Walkers can experience The Mull of Galloway Trail as the Chalets are positioned exactly halfway along the 26-mile path. South of the Chalets the path stretches 13 miles to the spectacular cliffs at Scotland's most southerly point with its lighthouse, visitor centre and scenic cafe.
There are six wooden chalets each with a large living room, two bedrooms, kitchenette and bathroom with bath and shower above. Nicely decorated in a Scottish or a seaside scheme, they all have a television, cooker, fridge and electric heaters. Every one is equipped with duvets, pillows, cutlery, crockery, cooking and cleaning utensils - everything you need for a great holiday. They can sleep four and some have a futon in the living room to sleep up to six.
In front of them is a grassy area where children and pets can run around and play safely or swim, paddle and explore the rock pools. All have a full length balcony to relax and take in the spectacular views. There is plenty of parking beside each chalet. Many people have barbecues on the shore, or meet up with friends at our neighbouring small caravan park.
Visitors are required to bring sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases, towels and tea towels. Duvets and pillows are supplied. Visitors pay for only for the electricity they use with a £1 coin slot meter. One bedroom in each chalet has bunk beds while four of the chalets have double beds in the main bedroom and two have twins. Please let us know which you would prefer and we will endeavour to accommodate you.
Close by is pretty Ardwell East Lodge, a one-bedroom cottage available for rent. For further information on the Lodge ring Chris Brewis on 07768650189.
