Rocklea fronts onto the shell beach at Kippford and sleeps 8 making it a superb family holiday cottage. The attractive detached family house retains a traditional feel but with modern facilities and 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.
