  • Mr Brittain

    “This property is in a lovely position overlooking the solway firth and beach.”

    It is advertised as a cottage, in fact it is a mobile home on a large mobile home site. On arrival we found that the kitchen equipment ie; pots,pans oven needed cleaning as did the cupboards. There had been no cleaning with disinfectant wipes on any surface through the property as stated by Lighthouse Leisure in there cleaning email they sent to us prior to occupation. We were very disappointed with this property .

    - Mr Brittain, October 2020

    I am sorry that our property did not match your expectations. The property is most certainly not a mobile home but simply a cottage that is not based on a mobile home site as you have mentioned. With reference to your comments about the cleanliness of the property, I would like to assure yourself and our future guests that the property has received nothing but glowing reviews prior and following your stay. I would like to add that had you contacted me during your stay, I would have been more than happy to put things right for you. During these times, our property is properly maintained and also fogged throughout. Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. - Sykes owner relations

About the location

SOUTHERNESS

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.
