Whether you are looking for the perfect idyllic Scottish coastal getaway, a break from the chaos of city life, a chance to re-connect with nature and wildlife, or simply hoping to indulge in the local activities and food delights of Galloway, Glenview Cottage, Kippford is the ideal choice to make.

Nestled in the remote village of Kippford, this 130 year old, cosy cottage with spectacular uninterrupted views offers the comfort, seclusion and tranquillity the village has known for centuries. Glenview is perfectly located for visiting an abundance of locations of interest and offers many exciting activities along the coast of Scotland.

Glenview has been fully renovated, retaining many of its original features and offers a modern interior with all contemporary conveniences to make your holiday comfortable and relaxing. The garden, situated up steps around the back of the cottage offers spectacular views of the water with its ever changing impressive Scottish landscape.

With 3 bedrooms (2 twin upstairs and 1 double downstairs), the cottage comfortably sleeps 6 adults. The bathroom is downstairs.

Steps lead up to a sunny secluded garden where one can enjoy the magnificent views of the Solway and watch the boats sail up and down the estuary.

Children should be supervised at all times in the garden and out the front of the cottage.

Bookings during April - September per week only.
