Ideally located for a family seaside holiday

Overlooking the Urr Estuary to Rough Island and offering spacious and comfortable accommodation for 6, the cottage has recently been refurbished to the highest of standards. The attractive garden surrounds the cottage and owners house ensuring privacy whilst also giving direct easy access to the shore across the private road at the front of the house, with space for boat storage and shorefront picnics.

Rockcliffe is one of Scotland's most attractive stretches of coastline, and makes a wonderful base for a family holiday with a safe sandy beach and easy coastal walks. To the north, a network of paths take you through mixed woodlands and wildflower meadows to Kippford, a busy sailing and water sports centre, and also a popular destination for eating out with two good pubs. In the other direction, the path follows the shoreline to Castle Point and then along cliff tops towards Sandyhills. At low tide one can walk to Rough Island, a National Trust for Scotland bird sanctuary.
The area provides interest for all, including a wide variety of outdoor activities: walking to enjoy the great diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna; mountain biking for all abilities on the 7stanes trails in the peaceful Dalbeattie Woods and Mabie Forest; sailing and kayaking in the Urr estuary; and bird watching in the estuary, along the coast and at the nearby Mersehead RSBP reserve. There is horse riding at local stables, fishing of all sorts and golf at local 9 and 18 hole courses, including the easy to reach Championship links course at Southerness. The area provides interest for all be it outdoor activities like Horse riding at local stables, fishing of all sorts (too many special spots to name), golf at local 9 and 18 hole courses including the easy to reach Championship links course at Southerness. Walking and Mountain biking for all abilities can be enjoyed nearby in the peaceful and attractive Dalbeattie woods or Mabie Forest, other sections of the 7Stanes Trails in the Forestry Commission woods are within a 45 minute drive and the walk round Glentrool Loch in the Galloway Forest Park gives superb views and wonderful opportunities for seeing varied wildlife.
The rich tapestry of Scottish history can be explored at Sweetheart Abbey in the charming village of New Abbey or at the many castles in the area including the majestic Caerlaverock Castle on the east side of the river Nith in Dumfries or closer by at Threave Castle with a river for a moat that has to be crossed by boat! The regions connections to Rabbie Burns should not be forgotten with his farm at Ellisland just north of Dumfries and a museum in the town's Burns Street.
