One of a group of three houses in a superb private and secluded location within a two minute walk of the safe sandy beach at Rockcliffe.  Mossdale provides traditional holiday accomodation which is spacious and comfortably furnished, this is an ideal property for a family holiday. Apart from the large living room there is a large utility area to the rear of the house containing the washing machine and drier and is ideal for the safe storage of bikes and wet weather gear

Rockcliffe is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Dumfries & Galloway. The close proximity of the beach and the secluded garden to the front make this an ideal holiday base. The nearby village of Kippford, the sailing centre for the South West, has two pubs both serving food and there is a delightful walk between Rockcliffe and Kippford along the Jubilee Path through land owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Golf courses abound in the area and the local stage of the 7Stanes Mountain Bike Network is within a fifteen minute drive of the house, with another stage at Mabie Forest, about half an hour by car.

*Guests staying at Mossdale can take advantage of free golf at nearby Colvend Golf Club. Colvend is an attactive 18 hole parkland course near the popular beach at Sandyhills, offering stunning views across the Solway and inland to the Galloway hills. This offer is for up to 4 players and must be booked directly through the clubhouse. For more details on the course visit :-  (Applicable for stay between August 2017 and July 2018 only.

Mossdale Reviews

4 star review

Pros: spacious, cosy even in October, traditional, near the beach, lovely walks, peaceful, nice secluded garden.
Cons: no parking right outside house, only a window door leading out to back garden which was hard to lock and unlock, dated decor, bit run down and could do with tic.
Overall we had a lovely weekend for four adults, three kids and a dog. If you prefer luxurious accommodation then Mossdale is not for you! But if you want a spacious house in a lovely location then it is fine for a weekend.

Cottage was a shock on arrival. No place to unload, cheap lino throughout no carpet,rugs,lamps etc. WIFI kept disappearing, furniture was old and sofa's torn and dirty. Only access to garden for dog was through the lounge window!!!. Crockery,glasses and kitchen was circa 1930's. Electrical wiring looks dangerous. This cottage is not fit for rental and we can't imagine why its available. We were very let down
We were very sorry to hear that you felt that the house had various failings.   We have reviewed these items with the owner and do feel that the photographs and text on the website do give a fair representation of its character and facilities. By way of example it is noted that that parking is a short way away and that the access into the garden is noted as being through the sitting room and there is a photograph of it taken looking from the garden, this will however be updated to note that there are steps up and down and that it is a French Window. The photos do however possibly give the impression of wood laminate floors although as you note this is not the case. The owner is very aware of the need for proper checks to comply with Health and Safety regulations and the electrical circuits and appliances are checked on a regular basis by a qualified electrician. Unfortunately the problem with wifi is a common one for the area and is due to the service provider not the property itself, rest assured we are all chasing Openreach et al to try to have improvements made to the cabling.The owner tries to provide good value comfortable family accommodation and feels that a rate of £400 for 3 nights or £133/night for 5 people which is £26/person/night is reasonable.We would assure you that we do take feedback seriously as it does allow us to see things from a different perspective and ensure that items that require attention are attended to as soon as possible.  We do also apologise for your disappointment with Mossdale and do hope that we will be able to help you with your future holiday plans, if you have particular requirements regarding the type of property that would be of interest then do feel free to contact the office to run through possible options.

I know the saying " you get what you pay for" and this property was reasonable for the size and location, but have to say felt more like a tolerated visitor whose payment helps them keep the property going rather than a welcome guest. Info folder hidden in a drawer and information leaflets in it well out of date. No instructions for heaters etc and could not get the one in the shower room on at all. (Think someone has already mentioned this). Certainly needs a bit of tlc, even painting it would make a big difference. Having said this we managed ok well equipped, good location and overall we had a lovely holiday. Lots of toys for the kids.
Thank you for taking time to leave your feedback, we are very sorry to hear of the problems that you had with the heaters.  It is helpful to have these things sort of things drawn to our attention so that additional or missing information may be provided to guests, the owners and ourselves are also more than happy to help if needed during your stay.  In any event your comments will be kept in mind when we next review the house this Autumn.  The owner has also said that tThe information file will be updated in the autumn as soon as he can get into the house. External repairs to the house were due to be completed in May, but due to the family circumstances of the carpenter have now been scheduled for September. Some external painting will be carried out at this time also.The telephone line has been repaired by BT.The drying machine (new in March) has been repaired by an engineer and I have placed instructions for this on the top of the machine.I would normally have been next door to help with any information about heaters etc., but was busy at the time of this visit and away from Rockcliffe. But I am normally easy to reach on the ‘phone or email for enquiries . Quotations to repaint the entire interior of the house are beign obtained.
We do hope that you still enjoyed your holiday and that we will be able to assist you with your future holiday plans.
