About the Owner

This has been our holiday home for 13 years. We've kitted it out just as we like it and have had many plaudits on how well it is equipped. A real home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 14th year in this area and we are very happy to find this new cottage. We have already booked to return next year . . and for a further week in the autumn. John.



Cottage - warm, comfortable, very well-equipped and spotlessly clean; garden – delightful!! Many thanks. Jennie and Steph.



Good to have such a beautiful view from the sitting room, a comfy bed and a decent shower and a well-equipped kitchen – and gorgeous weather too. Thanks. Isobel.

Lovely location

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful location have been coming up to this area for over 30 yrs and had lovely times the. cottage ok not a 4 star though grass hadn't been cut and floor in bathroom is unsafe. Car was damaged by a Tarmac company who were doing the road where cars parked which shouldn't have been done the weeks that were booked. This has spoilt our holiday. Neighbour at no. 1 very unfriendly be warned! Will be back to this area but unfortunately not Pittulie.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this feedback which helps us to maintain and improve our standards. The damage to the car was done on the open road, and while we obviously regret it, we were in no way responsible for this. For the two complaints about the house, we apologise unreservedly; the grass-cutting was delayed by the weather, and the unevenness in the bathroom floor was because a board under the floor-covering had moved a little. This had not been reported earlier, but was remedied immediately. We understand how holidays can be spoiled by such problems, and can only apologise. We do our best to provide a lovely holiday home and many visitors return to the cottage regularly.

Location

From the Owner

This is a little bit of Scotland which is quite unknown, and friends who have visited us here are surprised that such an unspoilt and beautiful part of Scotland is less than an hour from Gretna Green. We love the empty roads, the spectacular scenery and the hidden gems.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

400 yds to the seashore, and to the Coastal Path. 10 minutes walk to the beach at Rockcliffe, but when the tide is out, the sands on the Urr Estuary are safe to walk on and stretch around the coast to the next village of Kippford. There are rockpools to explore in Rockcliffe and a dazzling shell beach in Kippford.

Travel:

Glasgow and Prestwick are the nearest airports. Use of a car is recommended, though there is a good local bus service.

Distances:

Colvend, with church, and shop (open 7 days), 1.5 miles; Dalbeattie with bank, small supermarket, butchers etc 6 miles; Castle Douglas, specialist food town, 12 miles; Dumfries, county town with high street shops, supermarkets, cinema, icerink, etc 20 miles;

Further Details:

The region is historically and culturally diverse and richly endowed with places of interest: Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries, Caerlaverock Castle, Threave Castle and Gardens, Dundrennan Abbey, Sweetheart Abbey and many others; the Wickerman Festival at Auchencairn, the Striding Arches of Andy Goldsworthy and the astonishing sculptures at Glenkiln. Outdoor activities include Mabie Farm Park for children, 7Stanes mountain biking, Barend Stables and many golf courses.

Facilities

From the Owner

For walkers, cyclists and golfers, this is one of the best areas in the country offering the Southern Upland Way, Criffel and Screel Hill, the Glen Kens, 7Stanes and Mabie Forest trails, Southerness Championship Golf Course and a dozen other courses. Historic and cultural attractions are the castles of Caerlaverock and Threave, Dundrennan and Sweetheart Abbey; and Kirkcudbright Artists Town, Andy Goldsworthy's Striding Arches and the secret Glenkiln sculpture valley. For families there are a wealth of outdoor activities, fun farms, and open spaces. From the cottage, at low tide the wide sands round to Kippford are safe to run on, and the rockpools at Rockcliffe beach are full of life.
