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

This charming cottage was built in 1880 for a ship's captain at which time the historic port was extremely busy with ships. The modernised accommodation provides a super family holiday cottage from which to explore the local area which is designated as National Scenic Area of Outstanding Beauty. The cottage offers spacious accommodation including wood burning stoves in both sitting room and dining room together with smart tv and WIFI.

The cottage is in the heart of the historic village of Glencaple close to the historic quay which still remains. The village has a hotel/pub, tea room, children's play park and shop.

Coastal walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep up and down the Nith on the merse. There are superb opportunities to see a great variety of wildlife including many varied species of migrating birds including Barnacle Geese. The wildfowl and Wetland Trust at Caerlaverock is only a short drive away which offers a wonderful setting for seeing all the wintering waterfowl and there are many arranged events and ranger led walks which allow you to discover more about the merse and its history and development.

Local history and heritage can be discovered and enjoyed with days out to Caerlaverock Castle and other nearby sites including Sweetheart Abbey in the village of New Abbey or Drumlanrig Castle near Thornhill. Robert Burns features strongly in the area and his farm at Ellisland just north of Dumfries is open to the public and provides both an interesting museum together with charming riverside walks on the banks of the Nith.
