“A wonderful place.”
Reviewed 30 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

The cottage is beautiful, in a stunning setting with marvellous views of the river. The geese coming and going punctuated the day. The owners were very friendly and helpful and it was a truly magical place to spend Christmas. We had a great time with our family.

“Location, Location, location”
Reviewed 29 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Pretty much everything has already been said about this accomodation - fantastically appointed property, quality finish and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.
Whilst the property itself is first class, what sets it apart from the competition is the location, with stunning views across the River Nith to the merses and hills beyond.
The area is a haven for wildlife, from the morning and evening flights of Barnacle Geese and Whooper Swans, Peregrines hunting the flocks of duck and waders to the Roe Deer feeding on the merses. We were even treated to two sightings of Otters, all this from the house or garden.
I have one small complaint, our long weekend was over too soon!

“stunning”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Just back after a three day break with friends and must say this cottage is stunning. you could not ask for more. The views are across the river Nith are amazing. Dave made us so welcome and are already planning to go back again. This cottage is done to a very high standard, a lot of hard work and effort put into it by Dave and Kate, well done.

“A beautifully presented and located cottage”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Shorepark looked attractive online but it was hard to do justice to the beautiful riverside view which changed constantly with the tide. Glencaple is quiet and peaceful but has a shop and good local inn as well as being just a few miles from the facilities of Dumfries'
The owners were very helpful and close by if needed.

“Perfect relaxing stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This holiday cottage is truly 5 star - it's tastefully decorated, comfortable, and has everything you could need. The picture window is breathtaking at all times of the day! We enjoyed a relaxing long weekend including time in the glorious garden. David was very responsive to all questions- perfect hosts. We hope to return one day! Can't recommend highly enough.
