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.

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.
