This converted wing of a church is located in the village of Gatehouse of Fleet in the region of Dumfries & Galloway and sleeps seven people in three bedrooms.

West Gable is a converted wing of a church in the village of Gatehouse of Fleet in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside. Boasting two double bedrooms (one with ensuite facilities) and one twin room with a pull out bed, the cottage can sleep up to seven people. The accommodation also includes a family bathroom, a kitchen/diner with a snug and a sitting room.

To the outside of the cottage is off road parking for two cars and a lawned garden with a patio, outdoor furniture and a barbecue. West Gable is an ideal base for discovering this beautiful part of Scotland.


Superb Self Catering with Character
Gatehouse of Fleet is a hidden gem in Dumfries and Galloway. However, even more of a gem is West Gable which forms part of a former church that has been superbly converted to provide some very comfortable and well fitted self catering accommodation. West Gable is a mirror image of the adjoining East Gable. It provides three bedrooms over 3 floors (one ensuite) together with a well fitted kitchen/dining/sitting area on the ground floor (plus utility room and wc), a family bathroom on the first floor and a lovely lounge on the second floor. There is lots to do in the area and West Gable provides a wonderful base. Highly recommended. I will be back again as soon as possible.

The location of the property was good, as was the quality and quantity of kitchen equipment. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed eating in the garden. The property was decorated in a modern and tasteful way.
Mrs Doran

An excellent location, and the property was spotlessly clean, roomy, with plenty of dishes, cutlery and other kitchen utensils. Great water pressure and plenty of hot water.
Mr Weinberg

Loved the house, its location by the river, the village and the surrounding countryside. The locals were very friendly and helpful. It was a great spot for a holiday with really nice walks from the doorstep.
Mrs Reed

Very comfortable accommodation, a lovely old building with a modern twist. In a central location but still very peaceful.
