Holiday property description

Enjoy free golf when staying at Primrose Cottage

Primrose Cottage is a charming traditional cottage recently modernised and refurbished to an excellent standard and is just yards from Rockcliffe's popular sandy beach with rock pools and wonderful views to enjoy, for the adventurous you can walk at low tide to Rough Island or for the very adventurous at spring low tides even to Hestan Isle, but you will need to check the tide times to avoid troubling RNLI!

Whilst you may wish to just stay at the cottage to enjoy the beach there are also local coastal walks to Castle Point or to the popular sailing centre of Kippford with its two well-known hotels for eating and dining, both overlooking the Estuary making them ideal places for enjoying a quiet evening drink while watching activities on the river.   The cottage makes an excellent base for exploring South West Scotland with its outstanding natural beauty of rolling hills, open countryside and wonderful woods and forests.   Wildlife abounds throughout and can be enjoyed by all whilst taking walks or cycling through the Forestry Commission Woodlands or indeed at local reserves such as RSPB Merserhead or Wildfowl Wetlands Trust at Caerlaverock.     

Leisure pursuits such as golf, pony riding, cycling is all well catered for with numerous local golf courses to meet all standards including a testing championship links course at Southerness.   Cycling is also provided for all abilities be it exploring quiet country lanes or taking to the testing Forestry Commission 7Stanes Mountain Bike Routes, the nearest of these being in Dalbeattie Woods or Mabie Forest near Dumfries.  The local area's peaceful lochs, challenging rivers, picturesque sea shore and of course, sea angling trips provide opportunities for fishing of all levels of capability.


Guests staying at Primrose Cottage can take advantage of free golf at nearby Colvend Golf Club. Colvend is an attractive 18 hole parkland course located just 2 miles from the cottage, 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 :-

Had everything we needed and was clean and tidy on entry.
However the microwave needed replacing could not use as it was very rusty inside. Other than that, would certainly recommend the cottage as an ideal base for the area.
Thanks you for for 4 star review and recommending the cottage - it really is an ideal location! We shall let the owner know the issues with the microwave which will be looked into.

We had a wonderful holiday. The cottage was lovely, clean, warm and comfortable. It was very well equipped, and had everything you would need. It's location was perfect, so near the beach and plenty of fantastic walks right on the doorstep. There are also many places of interest to visit close by. Thank you to the owners for the eggs (which were delicious) and milk. Would highly recommend the cottage and would book again. Thank you.

Fantastic holiday in a beautiful part of Scotland. The cottage was really well kept and in an excellent location so close to the beach. It was handy to have the outhouse with washer and drier.

The weather was great and the cottage is by the beach but also the woods where you can go for many walks.
The cottage is of a very high standard and has everything and more that you need
We have stayed at the same place 3 times and it's always great.
Rockcliffe is such a great place to relax and enjoy yourself which we did and so did our dog Maisie **

Primrose Cottage perfect for us, two granddaughters (4 & 11) and Arran the dog. Cottage had everything we needed, well equipped, almost on the beach, clean with enclosed outdoor space. Loved the separate utility area, great for storing beach stuff, rinsing wetsuits etc. Hosepipe by the back door handy for washing sand off the dog and girls so not brought into the cottage. Nice private patio for quiet glass of wine in the evening. Would definitely stay again.
