Free golf at Colvend Golf Club for Mossdale guests
Just a two minute walk to the safe sandy beach at Rockcliffe, the house provides original shabby chic holiday accommodation which is spacious and comfortably furnished.This is an ideal property for a family holiday with no airs and graces so that you can relax at leisure. 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 drying beach wear and safe storage of canoes, bikes, golf clubs 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.
July 2018 - 4 star review - Loved the property, lots of room, not too posh. Could do with letting holidaymakers know that there is no parking at the house. (note you can park outside to unload, free parking is close by).
June 2018 - 5 star review - My wife and I plus our daughter, her husband, their three lively children (aged 11, 9 and 6) and dog spent an idyllic week ate Mossdale. It was perfectly located and easy for the children to run up and down to/from the beach. The large main room easily accommodated the seven of us for meals and evening games. Three large bedrooms meant the four adults and three children wearer very comfortable. We didn't need to worry about the children making a mess et. Having two bathrooms - one up, one down - was a great help.
October 2017 - 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.
