Southerness is a small coastal village established in the late 18th century, which looks out over the Solway Firth, and forms part of the Colvend coast, one of the finest stretches of coastline on the 'Scottish Riviera'. Home to two pubs, a village store, a leisure centre with a pool and two miles of sandy beaches with sand dunes, rock pools and Gulf Stream warmed waters, and one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland, built in 1748, it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The nearby Criffel Hill rises to 569m, offers wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary below, and provides great walking opportunities. The Southerness Championship Golf Course adjoins the village and offers panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south and the Galloway Hills to the west. A great location, with something to keep everybody occupied.

Previous visitors' comments about Beachcomber Cottage:
The activities equipment available at no charge for both adults and children were exceptional. Excellent location. Comfortable interiors.
Mrs Brown, Kirkcaldy, July 2012
There were 8 of us here, two of which were children who barley spent any time in the house - they were in the garden and other play areas on the property. Amazing, we would definitely go back. Owner was lovely and helpful, but never intrusive to our time there. Feeling super relaxed now after our stay.
Ms Phung, Currie, July 2012
I felt the property was child friendly and catered for all the members of the family of all different ages.
Mr Rutherford, West Calder, July 2012
Although the weather was bad and with 6 grandchildren aged 7 to 14 years old to keep amused, we did not hear 1 cry of I'm bored. The owner has excelled in providing everything to keep all ages, including us pensioners, entertained.
