The property

Located in the lovely seaside village of Southerness, Wagtail Cottage is a charming single storey cottage with fabulous views over the beach.

Offering high-quality accommodation for 4, Wagtail Cottage has a large hot tub with built in stereo and views out over the sea.

It's the ideal holiday destination for everyone from a family to a group of friends.

You enter Wagtail Cottage through the kitchen and all the accommodation is on the ground floor.

The fully equipped kitchen leads into a cosy living/dining room with Freesat TV, with access to the conservatory that provides those gorgeous views out across the beach and the sea.

It's the perfect tranquil spot for a breakfast cuppa or a sundowner after a busy day sightseeing or on the beach.

There are 2 generous sized bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, both decorated in a lovely beachside style.

The modern family bathroom has a bath with shower over, WC and basin.

Outside, there's ample off-road parking for 2 cars, and a lovely seaside garden with a large patio and garden furniture.

There's another small seating area virtually on the beach, and although there is no direct access from the house, you can get to the beach in just 30 seconds.

Finally, there's the hot tub room with sun loungers, a beer fridge and an 8 person hot tub with built-in stereo looking out over the sea.

It really is the perfect spot to watch the sun go down over the beach.

The beach at Southerness is a vast expanse of sand that stretches around Southerness Point.

With stunning views over the Solway Firth, you could spend your entire holiday here exploring the dunes, climbing the lighthouse and eating fish and chips on the beach.

If you're a nature lover, then this area of Dumfries and Galloway is a paradise with 3 nature reserves on the doorstep.

If a round of golf on one of Scotland's many great courses is more your style, then there are 4 courses within a 10 mile radius, with the 2 links courses at Southerness virtually on the doorstep.

For the kids there's an indoor pool with flumes, an indoor play area and an amusement arcade.

Perfectly located for beach lovers, Wagtail Cottage is the perfect holiday destination for those who enjoy their holidays in the great outdoors.

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.
