Rocklea - Kippford

Code: RO02ST

Holiday property description

This attractive detached family house is set in its own gardens just across from the beach - ideal for children. The house enjoys sweeping views over the Urr estuary to the mountains beyond and backs on to National Trust land providing many beautiful walks including access to Rockliffe along the Jubilee Path.

Kippford is a nationally renowned sailing venue with two pubs, both serving food and overlooking the estuary.    Several nearby towns, including Castle Douglas renowned for its food and Kirkcudbright for its art, offer good restaurants, pubs and shopping.  Kippford has its own 9 hole golf course, with Colvend (18) and the championship links course at Southerness (18) nearby.  There is fishing of all types available, and the local trailhead on the 7 Stanes Mountain Bike Network is within ten minutes in Dalbeattie Forest.

Rocklea Reviews

2 star review

Cottage rather tired and needs updating - we had a good time but bathrooms and some furniture now need replacing. The cost of the let is directly related to the location but people may start to question whether or not Rick Lea still offers value for money?
Many thanks for your review of Rocklea. Plans are in place to do some renovations early next year so you should see some changes should you rebook the property again.

Love the old fashioned house & location. Showers are definitely needed in bathrooms this day & age! Also more comfortable settee!
Thanks for the 4* review, the owners will be pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the house.  They are now looking at the possibility of providing a shower but may be not in time for 2018, the sofa will be brought to their attention to be checked.

The location was brilliant but the house was unloved and not value for money. We expect more. I will be writing to Discover Scotland to explain why we think this
Thank you for leaving your review, feedback is important so that standards may be maintained. The items raised such as the loose pan handle and the oven door could have been attended to during your stay if you had let us know while in contact with us about the wasps nest. The house is very much loved by the owners and has been in the family for 2 generations, they are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the house.  They do have a programme of ongoing upgrades and improvements but also do not want to lose the identity of it being a family home for family holidays to be enjoyed by all.
