Ten miles away is the busy little town of Stranraer on Loch Ryan with its leisure centre, swimming pool and other amenities while further up Loch Ryan it's possible to take a day trip to Belfast.

Ardwell itself has a successful fishing shop, Ardwell Marine, as Luce Bay is particularly popular for sea fishing, especially tope -- one website even calls it "God's Country". In front of the chalets is a grassy area where children and pets can run around safely and within walking distance you can swim, paddle, sail and fish in the sea, or simply sit on the verandah and admire the peaceful rural scenery. Within walking distance are the renowned gardens of Ardwell House while The Mull of Galloway Trail, a footpath stretching 12 miles to the spectacular cliffs at Scotland's most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway, passes yards away from the chalets. As the halfway point on the Trail they make the perfect place to stay for those walking the whole path.

Built of Finnish design, the chalets are very attractive both inside and out, and have a high standard of insulation meaning they maintain a comfortable temperature in hot or cold weather. Each chalet has a good-sized living room, two bedrooms (one with twin beds or a double bed and one with bunk beds), kitchenette and bathroom. They can comfortably accommodate four and by arrangement some can sleep up to six. The chalets are fully furnished and equipped with TV, electric water heater, cooker and refrigerator (£1 electricity slot meter), duvets, pillows, cutlery, crockery, cooking and cleaning utensils. Visitors are required only to bring sheets, duvet covers, towels and pillowcases. There is adequate space beside each chalet for a car, and some people meet up with friends at our neighbouring small caravan park.

Location description from owner

The Mull of Galloway region

South West Scotland and Galloway in particular is a neglected gem. The region is sometimes described as Scotland in miniature as we have hills, glens, rivers and coastal scenery but on a smaller scale to the highlands. In the days when most journeys were made by sea it stood at a crossroads and its importance is reflected in its many ruined castles and fortresses. St Ninian brought Christianity to Wigtownshire in 397 -- 200 years before it reached England.
The beautiful Galloway Hills offer beauty and remoteness without the crowds you find in the Lakes or some parts of the Highlands, and Galloway also boasts Scotland's Book Town, Wigtown, home to a series of second hand book shops and a must for any reader.

Ardwell

Ardwell is located on one of the most fascinating bits of coastline in the whole of Britain. It is part of the Rhins of Galloway, the hammerhead shaped peninsula in the very south west corner of Scotland. We are blessed with two shorelines, the placid "front shore" of Luce Bay where the chalets are situated. Here the sea is protected from the prevailing south-westerly wind and is often like glass, particularly nearby Chapelrossan Bay. Three miles away across the peninsula at Ardwell Bay, it's a different story as the "back shore" looks across to Ireland and consists of a series of little used cliffs and bays with few roads leading down to them, perfect for those who love walking, wildlife and getting away from it all.
The name Rhins comes from the Gaelic Na Rannaibh, meaning 'points' or 'headlands'. North to South, the Rhins of Galloway run from Milleur Point (near Kirkcolm) to the Mull of Galloway - the most Southerly point in Scotland, where a lighthouse sits atop spectacular 300-foot cliffs. Nearby the coffee shop has been landscaped into the hill and its clifftop location provides amazing views on a clear day of Ireland and the Isle of Man.
The effects of the Gulf Stream mean it has an extremely mild climate and there are no less than six gardens -- many with sub-tropical plants and all of them different within a 20-minute drive -- including Ardwell Gardens, which are a 10-minute walk away, or further if you take the scenic route along the lochside and stop off to feed the ducks and the swans. Three miles away Port Logan was the setting for the TV show "2,000 Acres of Sky" and it is also home to the unique Logan Fish Pond where you can feed tame fish.

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

What a fantastic week we had. Chalet was comfortable and ideally situated just by the beach. Everyone was very friendly. A super area to visit- highlights were seeing the seals most days, walking to Ardwell Gardens from the chalet, visiting and going up the Mull Lighthouse, stroking the shark at Port Logan fish pond! Many walks on lots of beaches! And just getting back to nature. It was just what we needed! Thank you so much.

Thank you, Glyn, for your excellent review. We hope to welcome you back soon to Ardwell. Kind regards Chris and Aileen Brewis
