    He was happy to have freedom to run around .It made the stay at Marden stress free. Easy walk to the shore . Very friendly people . Warm and comfortable indoors. Lots of choice of utensils for cooking. Very clean and tidy. Lovely to have use of a washing machine and tumble drier,also a hosepipe should we need it. Great skies and wide vistas with views across to the Lake District from Southerness itself. Enjoyable and relaxing . The owner made us feel very welcome.

The property

Resting on the edge of the coast within the village of Southerness is this delightful accommodation, Mardan.

Boasting far-reaching views and housing everything you could possibly need, this all-ground-floor accommodation is ideal for a family seeking a relaxing break to this part of Scotland.

Internally the property enjoys a refreshing colour palette, carefully selected furnishings and original images that the owner has taken and displayed throughout the property as a quiet reminder of your wonderful surroundings.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into a spacious sitting room, where plush sofas resting in front of a warming fireplace and a TV create a tranquil space to unwind after an action-packed afternoon.

Joining the sitting area is the dining table, where you and your loved ones can look forward to planning the days ahead whilst tucking into a home-cooked meal that was prepared within the well-equipped kitchen.

Step into the compact yet well-presented kitchen, where you will find all the essentials you will required to cater your own delicious evening meals, including a fridge/freezer and an electric oven and hob.

As the evening draws to a close, choose between two well-presented double bedrooms, each boasting ample storage and space to house your personal belongings and views of your surroundings to admire each morning.

To the outside of the property, look forward to soak up the sunshine within the large enclosed garden area, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink whilst your pets roam the lawn.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic spot, a short stroll will bring you to the local pub and restaurant, as well as a shop for picking up the essentials.

Whilst here, spend some time at the local beach where younger guests will be delighted by the rock pools which house interesting wildlife, while keen golfers can spend hours at the Solway Links Golf Course which is also a great afternoon with the whole family.

Brush up on the local history by discovering the 13th century Caerlaverock Castle or venture to the hill of Criffel for those feeling active.

Mardan is a wonderful base for exploring the superb location.

About the location


Castle Douglas 19 miles; Dalbeattie 13 miles; Dumfries 16 miles.

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.
