    “Lovely property, the views are amazing.”

    Lots of wading birds feeding on the waters edge and because it’s tucked away it’s very peaceful, somewhere to sit back and relax, or walk the sands and enjoy the fresh air.

The property

Fabulous detached beachfront cottage in hamlet of Southerness on Scotland’s beautiful Solway Coast.

Fully refurbished throughout and providing spacious, contemporary accommodation, the cottage is the ideal place for a seaside break.

All ground floor and with superb sea views from the front, this beach cottage has three bedrooms.

The king-size double and the twin both have en-suite shower rooms and a great family room has a king-size double bed and a double sofa bed, making it the perfect seaside cottage for families.

The large open plan living accommodation has a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with panoramic views across the Solway Firth.

French doors open out onto the lawned garden which drops down onto the beach.

Southerness has a hotel and a seasonal shop (Apr to Oct) with the village of New Abbey offering a general store, hotel and tea room.

This cottage is ideal for beach walks as well as something a little more challenging with the peak of Criffel nearby and the awesome Galloway Hills just a short drive away offering superb walking and cycling.

A wonderful beach cottage with something for the whole family to enjoy.

Note: This property is 300 yards from Ref. 13597, together they sleep 16.

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.
