Gatehouse provides a primary school, hotels, post office, bank, chemist, doctor's surgery, restaurants, cafes/coffee shops and two small supermarkets. A popular tourist spot, there is a keen sense of community within the town, with the annual Gatehouse Gala and Midsummer Music festival being particular highlights of the year. A wider range of shops, supermarkets and services can be found in the surrounding towns of Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Newton Stewart, with the regional capital of Dumfries offering university campuses, a major hospital, a range of high street shops, a retail park and large supermarkets.
There is sailing and sea angling on the Solway as well as other water sports, the area's rivers and lochs provide good opportunities for salmon, sea trout and trout fishing. The nearby harbour town of Kirkcudbright is known as Scotland's Artist Town, and similarly to Gatehouse draws visitors to the area throughout the year. Castle Douglas is a designated Food Town, and is home to many local producers of specialist foods and beverages. For lazy summer days there are sandy, picturesque beaches within close proximity to Gatehouse at Sandgreen and Mossyard.
The nearby Galloway Hills provide good hill walking and the Galloway Forest Park is officially designated as Britain's First Dark Sky Park giving astronomers phenomenal views of the stars due to the absence of artificial light.. The area also offers numerous opportunities for cycling enthusiasts, including mountain biking on the Seven Stanes routes, and several golf courses are within a short drive, including a 9 hole course at Gatehouse of Fleet. Equestrian pursuits are well catered for throughout the region, including riding schools and livery facilities, and the nearby Barstobrick Equestrian Centre holding dressage and show jumping competitions throughout the year.
There are good communications to the area with regular flights to London and mainland Europe from Prestwick, which can be reached in about 1-½ hours by road. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are about 113 miles distant. There are mainline railway stations in Dumfries, Lockerbie and Carlisle, and the M74 Motorway network is 56 miles to the East.
