Moorsheil - Rockcliffe

Code: MO06ST

Holiday property description

This superb shore front cottage sleeping six has superb views across Rockcliffe Bay to Rough Island, the Urr Estuary and the hills beyond.   The light and spacious cottage has been recently upgraded to an excellent standard providing a fantastic family holiday base. 

The popular village of Rockcliffe has a sandy beach and there are plenty of other outdoor activities close to hand including sailing at Kippford together with direct access from the cottage to the coastal path which leads to Castle Point and on round to deserted Smuggler's Coves and also the large popular beach at Sandyhills.   

The attractive walk along Jubilee Path to Kippford is well worth investigating. Kippford has two pubs both serving food, and front onto the river which is a popular and busy sailing and water sports venue.   

History, culture and outdoor sports are well catered for in the local area with historic sites including Threave Castle at Castle Douglas well worth visiting as you have to take a small boat across the river. Dumfries and its connection with Rabbie Burns are within easy reach including his farm Ellisland at Auldgirth.   Pleasant walks and mountain bike trails are available in the Forestry Commission Woodlands at Dalbeattie and further afield Mabie, Ae and other forests provide testing mountain bike trails forming part of the 7Stanes series.River and sea fishing abound and golf courses are all close to hand with enough so that you can play a different course every day of the week, including the testing Southerness Championship Links Course.   

Moorsheil is bound to please and with its outlooks it may be that you just want to sit and watch the views from the garden.   


Moorsheil is let Friday to Friday. Short breaks may be possible outside peak periods at the owners discretion, please contact us with your requirements.

Had a wonderful week.   Shame we have to go home.   It is a lovely house in a perfect location.   We have enjoyed every minute.   September 2015

Super short break & good weather!   The house is beautifully done and in a fantastic location.   September 2015.

Had a wonderful week in this beautiful house - wine & sweets an unexpected and much appreciated surprise.   The house is in a lovely location, well equipped, light & bright & comfy beds.  One of the best we've stayed in the twenty years of coming to this area.   Weather sunny, beautiful & varied sunsets.   Hope to return soon.   October 2015

Moorsheil Reviews

5 star review

Superb location and well appointed house with everything we would need for a good holiday. Whilst in general it was clean, the showers had black mould round the bottoms and the skirting boards downstairs were thick with dust. The ironing board needs replaced and the hoover has a mind of its own. We resolved most of the cleaning issues ourselves but shouldn't have had to. Apart from this great. Will rebook for next year.

We have stayed a quite a few cottages / houses in the area over the years. Moorsheil is a little gem tucked away. We were blessed with good weather, which always helps, and during cooler evenings the heating system and log fire was very efficient. A very comfortable and high quality cottage.

The holiday house was beautifully appointed with everything that you could possibly need for a happy holiday. The location was stunning, with a large garden leading to the rocky shore line that was ideal for exploring.

Cottage views fantastic. Cottage facilities good but not very clean when we arrived. Dishwasher full of dirty water. Kitchen bin had wet coffee granules in and upstairs shower had empty shampoos in it .
I cleaned up and the rest of the holiday was great

Wow! That was the reaction from all 6 of us. Cottage was exceptional, even the 2 boys ages 8 and 12 loved it, especially the room and chill out space they occupied at the top of the house. We have stayed in cottages before and this one was perfect in every way, wonderful views, comfort all round, everything you need as it was equipped very well. Only one tiny thing, maybe hooks to hang towels in the kitchen?

Kids take a day or two to wind down to the pace of life in Rockcliffe - but once they do they always have a wonderful time. We'll be back again soon.
Many thanks for your review! We look forward to helping you booking again in future!
