  • "A great property with a real lived in feel thanks to the furnishings and accessories, a welcome change from some bland holiday rentals."

    Chris was so helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. We were blessed with terrific weather and it was glorious to sit out the front and enjoy the world going by - unfortunately without shade it was too hot at times, but I'm told that a sun shade is on the cards for the property. A perfect property for a relaxing break and one I wouldn't hesitate to return to, which is rare for me.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and we’re so pleased to hear Seascape was to your liking. We have taken your comment onboard and now have a sun umbrella for guests to use whilst relaxing at the front of the property. We hope to welcome you back in the future and thank you once again for choosing to stay with us Chris & Alistair Property Owner

    Everything exceeded our expectations.From the information and help provided from Chris and Alistair prior to our visit and in the home, to the quality and quantity of the furnishings and the excellent interior design.The level of detail in adding beautiful fresh flowers, together with attractive house plants,to a generous and thoughtful welcome pack just enhanced our all too short 3 night stay.We were 6 adults and we all would highly recommend it.

    Thank you Peter for your lovely feedback we are so pleased you had a lovely break and Seascape was to your liking - we hope to welcome you back one day. Thanks Chris & Alistair Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous house in wonderful setting."

    To have the beach so close and the gardens of the house too was brilliant. We had sun all week which really made it. We stayed with our 17 month old who loved the beach. Kitchen is very well equipped, does limit the cupboard space available for food though. Lovely welcome basket provided with wine, tea, coffee and biscuits, jams and fudge. Plus milk in the fridge and OJ. Has lights which run up the stringers on the stairs which come on automatically which means you can see going up the stairs in the dark but unfortunately come on as you walk across from the back bedroom which was a bit annoying for us going to see our baby in the front room as then was really light opening the door. Apart from that everything was fab. Isn't too much in Powfoot, not a shop but 2 pub / hotels. We didn't go to either. A big tesco, aldi and lidl in Anan only a few mins drive away. Didn't really seem too much else in Anan so didn't explore that. Dumfries very disappointing and run down. Found a fab cafe / restaurant called The Boathouse not too far, would highly recommend that.

  • "Honestly the nicest place we have ever stayed."

    The home is beautifully decorated, and completely equipped with everything you will need and want. I usually take so many things in case they're not provided. This is the only place I can think of that has thought of everything. We really loved it and hope to return with parents. Some highlights: 2 separate lounges with large TVs (as well as TVs in bedrooms); woodburning stove with wood provided; superbly equipped kitchen; lovely big dining table for meals; huge sofas :) The views were lovely and the lounge catches the sunshine which we loved. A small relaxing seating area outside was also perfect to watch the views. Would love to go back again!!

    Thank you very much Kirsten for your wonderful review of Seascape we are so pleased to hear everything was to your liking and comfortable for your holiday. We hope to welcome you and your parents back in the near future - thank you once again for choosing to stay @ Seascape. Chris & Alistair Property Owner

  • "Top quality accommodation."

    All 3 bedrooms are a decent size with comfortable double beds so there were no arguments as to who was getting which bedroom. Welcome pack was superb which complemented the excellent kitchen with lots of utensils and equipment provided. Sofas in both rooms were big and comfortable with lovely views of the Solway Firth. Also both bathrooms were a good size although all 3 couples would have preferred en- suites but that fact would not stop us staying again as everything else is so good.

    Thank you for your super Sykes review of Seascape Antony and pleased to hear you all enjoyed your stay and you found the sofas and Kingsize beds comfortable and the house well equipped for your needs. I noted that you would have preferred - en-suites to the 3 bedrooms unfortunately we were restricted by the design of house and it being a Victorian listed building when refurbishing. We are pleased to hear that this wouldn’t prevent you returning and we look forward to welcoming you back someday. Many thanks Chris & Alistair Property Owner

As a group of friends coming together before the rush of Christmas we had a great time and seascape was perfect for our individual needs, offering space for all of us.

  • "Seascape is furnished, decorated and equipped to an extremely high standard."

    The owners have paid incredible attention to detail to everything which means you feel relaxed and at home as soon as you arrive. All this means it makes it very difficult to leave the property but if you do there is a beautiful quiet beach literally minutes away. Powfoot itself is a very calming serene place but well situated to venture out to explore the many castles and walks in the area or indeed the towns and cities. Christina and Alistair have created a simply stunning 10/10 property which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who is thinking of staying there. We had a wonderful week there which we will never forget as a family and were extremely sad to be leaving. We hope to return again one day in the not to distant future. Mr Andrew Bell

    The owners are easily contacted and very helpful. The neighbours are friendly too. The whole house is light and airy and has a lovely view across grass to Powfoot Beach beyond. There is very little traffic in Powfoot itself. The surrounding area has many sites of historical interest and there are walks galore whether it be in a nature reserve, along a coastal path, in one of the many forests or a hillwalk.

Found in the small village of Powfoot in Dumfries and Galloway is this beautiful semi-detached cottage, Seascape, it boasts sea views and in the distance Skiddaw and Blencathra can be seen.

Ideal for three couples, Seascape boasts three king-size bedrooms and enjoys stylish, contemporary interiors.

Spend time amidst your loved ones in the kitchen, opening up a bottle of wine as you perch at the stylish breakfast bar with feature lighting above, as the chef of the group gets to work cooking up a storm in the sleek grey fitted kitchen with quality integrated appliances.

Make yourself at home in the sitting room which enjoys gorgeous sea views from the windows along with plush blue sofas and accents of blue throughout with a TV to entertain.

Carry your conversation into the living/dining room where another inviting sitting area has been lovingly curated around the woodburning stove and large TV, with more modern feature lighting above and a large dining table behind to host your delicious feasts.

A door from the sitting area leads out onto the spacious front lawns where a patio with rattan furniture offers an idyllic spot to unwind in the sun.

The ground floor layout is completed by a cloakroom, whilst upstairs you can freshen up in either of the two bathrooms, one boasting his and hers basins and a roomy walk-in shower, and the other hosting a bath with a hand held shower and a separate walk-in shower.

Choose from either of the three elegant king-size bedrooms, each enjoying its own colour scheme with bespoke fitted storage, a TV and more quality furnishings.

Seascape is just a short stroll down to Powfoot Beach which sits on the scenic Solway Firth, with a lovely path along the coast allowing you to walk east towards Annan, coming upon a shingle area of the beach along the way.

Golf enthusiasts will surely want to try out the beautiful course at Powfoot Golf Club, with views over the Firth making it a scenic experience as you practice your putting.

Powfoot is home to a hotel with a bar and restaurant, The Powfoot Hotel, perfect for a special occasion while plenty more restaurants and pubs can be found in Annan, a historic town settled alongside the river of the same name.

About the location

ANNAN

Dumfries 15.7 miles; Carlisle 20 miles

The town of Annan, a former harbour, lies on the banks of the River Annan, in East Dumfries and Galloway, and is steeped in history, with the area once the site of Roman camps and the workplace of the writer Thomas Carlyle. Each year, the town celebrates the Riding of the Marches, in honour of the Royal Charter bestowed by King James V, which involves parades, massed pipe bands and competitions. The area around Annan has many small towns, picture postcard villages and hamlets, plus beautiful unspoilt coastline, with sandy beaches and hidden coves. Visit nearby Caerlaverock Castle, one of Scotland's finest ruined castles or Annandale Distillery. Take a day trip and marvel at the majestic architecture of the grand abbeys of Melrose and Jedburgh or visit the northern Lake District and the historic Hadrian’s Wall. Annan is an ideal base for exploring this lovely area.
