Kippford is a little jewel of a place with lovely walks, with a real seaside feel. Allonby cottage has everything you will need for a relaxing break, handy separate shower downstairs, very comfortable bed and fab views over the Solway. Tea and biscuits were left in the kitchen on our arrival and the cottage was toasty warm. On Easter Sunday I was greeted at the kitchen window by a cheeky little red squirrel, lots of little bunnies on the lawn, and an abundance of wild birds on the feeders. Very good value for money , lovely quaint cottage.
The cottage was lovely, beautifully decorated, a real home from home with everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was very well equipped for meals in but there are also two Fab pubs to eat out at, the Anchor two doors down and the the Mariner just a short walk away. There is also a lovely garden at the back for the kids to play in although it is nice just to sit out at the front and look at the boats.
We just thought we'd post a few comments & photo's from our lovely stay at Allonby Cottage.
The Cottage itself was great with plenty of room - ideal for a big group or a family party - as it was it was just the two of us & we loved the space.
We chose the Cottage based on its location within the village, which is just three doors up from the pub, great for popping in after a hard days walking.
The Anchor Hotel does some nice evening meals & has a lovely feel to it, with locals & holiday makes all enjoying a pint or two.
The village of Kippford is a great base for exploring the coast with some nice walks on the door step to Rockcliffe & Sandyhills as well as some within a short drive like the walks we took to Balcary Bay & Loch Trool
Overall a great stay (even the weather was ok) & we'd be happy to return as soon as we can.
