Holiday property description
Family holiday accommodation in a quiet location in the popular seaside village of Rockcliffe. The house has excellent views over the Rough Firth and it is just over half a mile walk to the bay with its attractive sandy beach. There is easy access from the house to cliff top and forest walks including the Jubilee Path to Kippford.
Within a short drive are the wonderful sandy beaches of Sandyhills and Southerness and the popular sailing village of Kippford which has two pubs both of which serve food. The house is an ideal base for a holiday in this area. Sporting facilities abound, there are bird and wildlife reserves at WWT Caerlaverock and RSPB at Mersehead both only a short drive away. For the golfer, there is an 18 hole golf course at Colvend (three minutes by car) and the championship links course at Southerness, with many others nearby. Mabie Forest, within half an hour drive, has extensive forest trails, an adventure playground for children and forms one of the stages of the 7Stanes mountain bike network. Further 7stanes trailheads can be found in Dalbeattie Forest (about 5 minutes' drive away), and further afield in The Galloway Forest Park at Kirroughtree and Glentrool.

Foxbrae Cottage Reviews
2 star reviewThere was a musty smell which spoilt my holiday. The accommodation was old fashioned. I didn't expect it to smell so musty. Expected better standards whilst away as it cost a lot of moneyThe owners were very sorry to hear of the problem and will be investigating it. The comments that you have made will be kept in mind when we next review the house. If there are items that need attention do please let the owner/ourselves know as soon as possible so that they may be attended to.
4 star reviewThe property had everything needed and was in an idyllic location.
However on entering the cottage initially there was a rather musty smell, perhaps due to long gaps of inoccupancy. It was also a bit disappointing in that some rooms had rather old fashioned and dated furniture, but despite that it was still a good holiday.
Just a few changes could make it even better.
4 star reviewComfortable no frills cottage, lovely new kitchen but shower could do with being modernised too.
had to contact Discover Scotland due to an issue on arrival, the owner contacted me within minutes and solved the issue as soon as the could. Excellent service.
