    “Overall a disappointing week.”

    The cleanliness was not up to standard, I had to clean the kitchen and wash the floor before we could unpack. On the first evening we noticed the hot tub was switched off, it had not been cleaned and was a stale stagnant pond so unusable. The issue was not resolved until Tuesday so we missed 4 days of using it. The summer house could also not be used as the ceiling was falling down. We didn’t like the area as the 2000 mobile homes in front of the cottage were not mentioned in the description ...

Plus points, the beds were comfy as were the soft furnishings, beach decor theme was nice.

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.
