COVID-19 Update

We are a small, dedicated team who pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers and owners. We have worked hard to achieve Feefo Platinum standard for delivering exceptional customer and we will continue to try to adhere to this even during the crisis that we now have.

With thousands of bookings across 270 properties and their respective owners to liaise with, it’s a huge jigsaw for us to complete, particularly when we can’t be in the office due to the current restrictions. We are trying to be socially responsible & morally fair in discussions with our owners. We have asked them to consider allowing a variation to the booking terms and conditions so that the clause regarding no refunds being made in the case of an epidemic may now be varied during the COVID19 epidemic.

Once we have a response from our owners we will be contacting all our holiday-makers who have not been able to take up their holiday due to the current COVID19 restrictions. In the first instance that will be those holidays falling in the current 3 week period. If this period is extended then we will roll forward until such time as restrictions are lifted.

Please be assured that we will respond to you as soon as possible and we are very grateful for your support and patience at this time

Enjoy the stunning views from the house to Hestan Island and over the Solway Firth, Scotland's most southerly firth.The house sits in a superb position on the hillside above the popular seaside village of Rockcliffe giving outstanding views over the estuary to Rough Island Nature Reserve, which can be walked to over a causeway at low tide. The house has a private setting with an attractive garden laid out over the hillside with rough rock garden paths among the varied plants and shrubs.
Lonsdale is furnished and equipped to a high standard to ensure a completely enjoyable stay. The spacious rooms have superb views of the estuary and the dining room has patio doors to a sun trap patio - whilst you may find you just want to sit and enjoy the seascape you should still make the effort to explore the wonderful local area!
Rockcliffe is an popular family holiday location with its safe beach and varied walks, be it round to Kippford for a pub lunch at one of the two water front hotels or to explore the rocky out crop of Castle Point and on via cliff top walks to Smugglers coves.
Kippford is a busy sailing centre and other outdoor activities are well catered for in the local area with Horse Riding, fishing of all sorts, golf of all sorts with a 9 hole course at Kippford, 18 holes at nearby Colvend and the Southerness links championship course only a few miles further on round the Solway coast. Wildlife can be seen where ever you are with red squirrels in most areas and excellent bird watching at RSPB Mersehead reserve and also on the Red Kite trail near Loch Ken. For those looking for strenuous pursuits the Forestry Commission 7stanes trails are all easily accessible and the Dalbeattie woods trail is less than a 5 minute drive away.

The Damage Deposit, less any reasonable charges, will be returned within 14 days of the departure date. Where any costs exceed the Damage Deposit the holiday-maker will pay such excess as notified to them by Discover Scotland within 14 days of notification. Where the holiday-maker has agreed to pay the Damage Deposit Waiver the Damage Deposit is not payable. This amount is non-refundable. If the cost of any damage or breakages exceeds the applicable Damage Deposit value for the property, then the holiday-maker will be liable for any additional costs. Any such excess will be notified to them by Discover Scotland and due for payment within 14 days of notification.
