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.

The bustling seaside village of Kippford is a mecca for water sports with yacht moorings on the river and a busy sailing club running frequent events and regattas. The village centre is just a short walk from the house and has two pubs. There is access to both Jubilee Path and also the Rough Firth road which both provide access to a network of scenic pathways over National Trust of Scotland land to Rockcliffe. Rocklea is around 2 miles from the 7Stanes mountain bike trail in Dalbeattie Forest and only a short drive to numerous sandy beaches, Galloway Forest Park, loch and river fishing, hill walking, golf courses abound be it recreational nine hole courses or testing Championship Link Courses such as the one at Southerness.
