Primrose Cottage - Rockcliffe
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 :- http://www.colvendgolfclub.co.uk/

Primrose Cottage Reviews
5 star reviewThe 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 **
5 star reviewPrimrose 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.
5 star reviewTHe cottage was in a perfect location, wonderfully updated in a tasteful way and very well equipped. The owner had kindly left milk and fresh eggs from his own chickens for us. Great tv and wifi too!We're so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay and we're sure the owners will be pleased with your comments. Many thanks!
5 star reviewThe cottage was very well equipped and in a lovely position close to the shore and the owners were very helpful and attentive. The opportunity to play golf was great bonus and we would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a golf holiday or long weekend.
Thank you for a wonderful three weeks in glorious Rockcliffe!
