“Beautiful cottage fantastic views”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Dave and Kathleen are such lovely people they were at the cottage to meet us and showed us around, we can't say nothing negative about this place, absolutely beautiful, everything is very clean and tidy, the beds are really comfy and ensuite is fantastic, the views from the living room window are lovely, you don't want for anything at the cottage, we visited some lovely coastal area when we were there and the weather was good, will definitely be booking to go to this cottage again thank you to Dave and Kathleen for a wonderful stay.

“Excellent in every way - all cottages should be like this”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Had a 4 day break with my husband and daughter and found the accommodation to be fantastic. Obviously there's the view - never mind the weather it is just lovely. The cottage is very high spec........and high tech. My daughter loved the Wi-Fi and Netflix in every room, it's a wonder we ever got her out! We tried the local pub and coffee shop which were both very good and the shop is very handy too. There's lots of information in the cottage about local things to do or you could always ask Dave and Kathleen. Altogether we had a great time and have already recommended it to our friends.

“Great cottage, sublime location, excellent hosts”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We enjoyed a family weekend, followed by an extended business stay with colleagues. The kids loved the cottage, the views were wonderful, we loved the garden and the property was equipped to a very high standard.

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed as we were shown around the cottage, we appreciated the milk in the fridge and the cold beers on arrival.

We walked up the street and had dinner one night in the pub (The Nith Hotel) which was family friendly.

The hosts kindly suggested some beaches for us to visit and we plumbed for Powillimount Beach, approx 10 miles away along the coast, a deserted shell beach, which we loved!

We would definitely stay again. it was warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

“Stunning property with fantastic views”
Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Shore park holiday cottage has been beautifully finished to a high standard throughout. The underfloor heating keeps the property very comfortable and the wood burners add extra warmth and coziness in the cooler months.
The owners have thought of everything to ensure a relaxed and enjoyable stay and the welcoming touches add to what is already first class accommodation.
The view from the living room window is spectacular even in poor weather and you never tire of looking at it.
Set in a peaceful location within a few minutes walk of a local shop, tea room and hotel (both serving lovely food) Shore Park is within easy reach of Dumfries.
