Description from manager


Sleeping five people in two bedrooms, this single storey property is right on the beach in the coastal village of Southerness.Oyster Catcher is a charming single storey cottage in a wonderful holiday location, set overlooking the beach and the Solway Firth in Southerness, Dumfries and Galloway. There is a double bedroom, and also a room with a triple bunk, suitable for three people as it has a double bed on the bottom and a single on top. The cottage has a fitted kitchen, and a sitting room with a dining area and gas fire. Outside there is off road parking for one car, while the lawned garden is very well kept, with views to the sea and beach. The amenities of Southerness are a short walk, and with golfing, walking, cycling and wonderful nature all within easy reach, Oyster Catcher makes a charming family base.

Amenities: Electric heating with gas fire. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, TV with Freeview, DVD, selection of books, games and DVDs. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair. Off road parking for 2 cars. Lawned garden to rear with furniture. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 10 mins walk.

Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Town: Established in the late 18th century, the village of Southerness looks out over the Solway Firth and forms part of the Colvend coast. Home to two pubs and a village store, the seaside village also boasts two miles of sandy beaches with dunes, rock pools and warm Gulf Stream waters, as well as one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland. Built in 1748, this beacon was one of the first in the country. Nearby Criffel Hill is an impressive 569m tall and offers varied walks with wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary. The Southerness Championship Golf Course is definitely worth playing for its panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District and the Galloway Hills.
