  • "We were welcomed by Julie who was lovely, very informative."

    The Bungalow had everything we required and everything was to the highest standard. We loved the view and changing shore line. Beautiful Rainbow on our last evening on the Solway firth.

  • "A beautiful, pristine cottage at the coast."

    Lovely views and ideal for a quiet, relaxing break with plenty of nice walks and interesting places nearby. Accommodation is kept to a high standard, and the owners are nearby if there is a need to contact them. We’ve stayed a few times and have rebooked, and we would thoroughly recommend the property.

    The cottage is very comfortable and has everything that I need. I spent most of my time birdwatching between Caelaverock, Rockcliffe (on the English side) and Powfoot, but also for the first time I climbed nearby Criffel from Ardwall for spectacular views of the Solway Firth and the Lake District.

    Comfort and cleanliness were excellent and everything you need for a short stay seemed to be provided. The owner, Julie, was easily contacted, and very pleasant to talk with. We did have a small problem at the cottage, and Julie was extremely helpful and conscientious in sorting out the problem very quickly. The location is superb, with fabulous views, and trips to Dumfries and Edinburgh provided excellent gastronomic treats. Thankyou.

    The cleanliness, dedication and welcome given by the lovely owner, was second to none and I have already been recommending this hidden gem, to friends, as a beautiful, most relaxing and therapeutic getaway, for the future. There are stunning views and wonderful walks, literally from the doorstep, friendly locals who are delighted to stop for a wee chat and share local information about the area, which adds to the already incredibly packed in-house folder, giving details of amenities and attractions etc. This amazing property, literally only a stone’s throw from the sea, is an absolute must, for all visitors, of all ages and disabilities. Thank you.

  • "This is a wonderful cottage."

    Very comfortable, carefully equipped with everything you might need, and tastefully furnished to a very high standard. The view over the Solway Firth constantly changes with the tide and we saw herons, oyster catchers and other sea birds every day. With binoculars, we could even watch a seal colony on the sand bank at low tide. With Annan just four miles away, we had easy access to a wide range of local shops, pubs, other food outlets and a large supermarket. Highly recommended and certainly the best self catering property we have ever stayed in.

    We had our 93 year old mother with us and the cottage was ideal for her. Don't hesitate in booking this cottage, if you don't you have missed out on something quite special. Just one thing, the people of Powfoot rise up and do something about the menu at the Powfoot Hotel, very odd and not very good. We would also like to give Julie the owner a special thanks, she's absolutely lovely, welcoming and very helpful. It was just Perfect!

    The cottage surpassed all expectations. The comfort and standard and location were outstanding. We were blessed with beautiful weather, but you could stay here even with the worst weather and still look out onto the stunning landscape and be refreshed. On the day we arrived Julie was there to welcome us and show us how everything worked, and only a text away if help was needed. Plenty of information about the local area was provided. New Abbey with its excellent cafe is well worth a visit. The Powfoot Hotel has a very popular restaurant and our advice is to book in at their restaurant a week before you arrive. That is what we will do on our next visit. Oh yes, we will definitely return to 2 Whiterow.

    It is far more spacious than you think looking at the outside. Julie has thought of everything you may need for your holiday right done to a packet of toothbrushes in case you had forgotten your own. The weather was not in our favour but the cottage was warm and cosy and Netflix on the TV was an added bonus. The weather also meant we could not take advantage of the Hotel a few doors along due to Covid restrictions so had to settle for a glass of wine at the cottage looking out into the Solway and Cumbria beyond, could have been far worse! Great base for exploring the area. Julie is warm and friendly and nothing is a bother for her. Loved this cottage do much.

  • "This cottage feels like a real home from home."

    Julie, the owner, was helpful when I phoned her before our arrival and also when I had a couple of questions while we were away. It was peaceful and warm and, despite the fact it rained a lot, a good base to set out from on a day trip. We went with our two children (4 and 2) and they loved sitting on the large windowsills and looking out onto the Solway Firth. The back garden with picnic bench was nice for them to play in but they had to be supervised at all times, as you can access the road by following the side of the house round. Although not too busy there is regular traffic going to the hotel and golf course. From the back you can see onto the neighbours’ cottages and back gardens - they were friendly and checked we were having a good time. There are large dogs next door which did bark quite a lot whenever we opened the back door and a few times some young boys on bikes were playing on the shared access road up the side of the house, so it didn’t always feel private when in the kitchen or accessing the garden. The beds are comfy and the house was spotlessly clean throughout. The wine and chocolates on arrival were a welcome touch. We had our shopping delivered on the evening we arrived, so didn’t need to find a supermarket. This was handy as there were not any small local shops in Powfoot that we found. There is a very small park/playground which was good for our children though, about a 15 minute walk away. You see the sign for it as you drive in to Powfoot. We could have done with a bit more info in the file about the house, such as when to put the bin out, but there were lots of leaflets about the local area. There isn’t much to do in Powfoot itself, other than to walk along the sand. It is not beachy sand, but clay-like... so you can’t build sandcastles on there. We drove to SandyHills, about an hour away, which was better for sandcastle building. We also drove to Threave Estate and gardens, about 50 mins away, which was lovely- as well as Gretna Green (it was all still closed up from Covid restrictions, even though the website didn’t say this!) and to Loch Mabel nature reserve for a walk and a picnic, so there is enough to do if you’re willing to drive there. The cottage is a great base from which to explore, but if you want things on your doorstep just to walk to, like a pub or a shops, then this is not the place for you. We have had a lovely week. We would visit again, simply for the cottage, knowing how lovely it is, but not necessarily for the location.

For those who need to keep in touch, the internet connection is excellent. The location of the cottage itself was the main attraction, a very picturesque row of whitewashed fishermen's cottages, with a huge expanse of sandy beach right on the doorstep. A very relaxing and invigorating week, couldn't recommend it highly enough.Finally, big thanks to Julie, our host, for a very genial welcome, immediately made us feel that we had picked the right place [... and the bottle of fizz went down well].5*.

Further afield you can reach Dumfries, a traditional county town hosting an abundance of wonder at any time of year.

2 Whiterow is a marvellous base from which to explore Scotland.

About the location

POWFOOT, ANNAN

Carlisle 19 miles

The near-by Royal Burgh of Annan, featuring the site of a 12th century motte and bailey castle and an ancient harbour undergoing a phased restoration, lies on the banks of the River Annan in east Dumfries and Galloway. The area is steeped in history and was once the site of Roman camps and the birthplace of famous writer Thomas Carlyle. Each year on the first Saturday in July, Annan celebrates the Riding of the Marches in honour of the Royal Charter bestowed by King James V. The festival includes a large cavalcade of horses and riders inspecting historic boundaries on land and the Solway sands, while also featuring parades, massed pipe bands, competitions and sports. Annan is capital of Annandale and Eskdale which has a number of distinctive small towns, picture-postcard villages and hamlets, plus a beautiful unspoilt coastline with rugged shores, beaches and hidden coves. Visit imposing Caerlaverock Castle, a little to the west, or in the other direction take a tour and a tipple at internationally famous Annandale Distillery at Annan. Close by is the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) reserve at Caerlaverock, sometimes featured in the popular BBC TV Autumn Watch programmes. Guests can easily marvel at the majestic architecture of the abbeys at Melrose and Jedburgh, visit the northern Lake District or historic Hadrian's Wall and perhaps take in the romance of famous marriage capital Gretna Green. Also why not explore the 'wild west' country frequented by the notorious Border Reivers or some of the haunts of Scotland's national bard Robert Burns?
