The Dumfries and Galloway region

The climate in the area is similar to that in Cornwall due to the Gulf Stream. Many people drive straight past the area on their way to the highlands and miss out on the beautiful rolling countryside, amazing beaches, historic towns and buildings. The sea is warm enough to swim in in the summer. The largest town in the area is Dumfries (21 miles). Castle Douglas, a smaller town within 20 minutes drive, has been designated a food town with a plethora of speciality food shops selling a variety of local produce, cafes, restaurants and hotels. Kircudbright within 45 minutes drive is a centre for craft workers and artists and has been designated The Artists Town. There is so much more to discover in the area, and best of all we don't get midges!!


For mountain bikers, the 7Stanes biking trail centre in Dalbeattie Forest is only a few miles away.

There are numerous golf courses - including a very good par 3 just outside the village, bird-watching, walking - there are a huge network of coastal paths, sailing - in the village, horse-riding - within a 15minute drive.

"A great location, house was like home from home, highly recommend."

Was surprised by how much I enjoyed our stay, a tranquil setting, everything you needed was in the house. Lots of visitors about but relaxing, the tides going out and being able to walk out to the island was something, There is plenty to do if you want an active holiday or if you are like me just going at a slower pace. It was funny watching the people trying to get a mobile signal, sometimes it was ok, then it could disappear.

"Fabulous house and beautiful location. I highly recommend it!"

We loved our stay in this house. It is a beautiful large family home with wonderful panoramic views of the estuary. It is situated at the end of a private single track road right on the estuary, next to a shell beach too! Local inn serving good food is a very pleasant 15 minute stroll away in the village. Fabulous area for exploring too. We'll be back!

"First Rate Family Home"

Great house in a stunning location. This is a traditional family home with large rooms and high ceilings. Very well presented and equipped. The views from the bedrooms and living rooms are over the large well kept garden to the sea. The house is right by the sea and the beach is a stone throw away. The access is along a private road which makes the location even more peaceful and quiet yet there is a pleasant pub and restaurant 15 minute easy walk along the road right by the sea. There is a small slipway for launching boats which we put to good use. We had a great weeks holiday here and were lucky enough to be able to extend our stay by a couple of days. Kippford is a hidden gem in Galloway.

"Beautiful house and perfect location with enough room for everyone!"

This house is in an amazing location! Lovely views no matter what the weather throws at you! The house itself retains its original features and is furnished to a standard in keeping with the Arts and Crafts period of the house! 5 adults and 3 children stayed here for a long weekend and there was enough space or everyone. The children had a great time exploring. Kipfford is a 5 minute walk and the pub in the village overlooks the estuary...perfect for that evening drink or meal. We spent every evening on the beach in front of the house looking in rock pools and taking in the sea air...lovely!! Tesco does shopping delivery to the house so you don't have to worry about those groceries. We would definitely recommend this house and would stay here again.
