Munro Cottage is a classic seaside family holiday cottage sleeping 7, fronting onto the popular sandy cove of Rockcliffe beach in the picturesque coastal village on the Solway Firth. The main living rooms along with most of the bedrooms all have sea views and the traditional construction makes it a light and airy house with good sized rooms ensuring space for all, even for larger groups. The separate Dining room makes a comfortable space for special parties while the spacious layout of the kitchen includes a dining and family seating area for relaxed living. The sitting room’s bay window makes a lovely spot from which to enjoy the view over the sandy cove while the wood burning stove makes it snug and cosy in winter after a day out exploring the local area.

The cottage makes a perfect base for family beach holidays, with walks through the near by wild flower meadows and woodland managed by the National Trust for Scotland. These walks take you over the hill to the “sister” village of Kippford which is a popular and busy sailing and water sports centre with two hotels and a tea room all making excellent stops for refreshments before you return home. Nearby, Colvend has a general store and tea room, more facilities can be found in ‘The Granite Town’ of Dalbeattie, 7 miles away.

The beautiful Solway Coast offers spectacular scenery and wildlife, with a bird sanctuary on Rough Island, accessible at low tide and the RSPB Reserve at Mersehead, a short drive away. Local leisure facilities include sailing in the neighbouring village of Kippford and golf courses at Colvend, Southerness, Kippford and Dalbeattie. ‘World-class’ mountain-biking opportunities (7 Stanes) and walks are popular in the nearby Dalbeattie forest.

Munro Cottage is the left side of the pair of semi detached cottages and the adjoining Albany Cottage can be taken so that larger groups may be together in one location.
