Cabin Holiday Rental
Sleeping up to 6 in 3 bedrooms and fully equipped for self-catering this solid-built pine log cabin is open to let all year round. Warm in winter, ideal for short breaks for walkers, cyclists or for a family Christmas, but with its decked verandas and proximity to the seaside, it is also perfect for a 'bucket & spade' family holiday. Beautifully situated, it is perfect for catching the sun all day, or watching the sun set over the Galloway hills. And only 10 minutes stroll from the village, which has pubs serving good food, coffees and drinks and coastal walks over National Trust lands to the adjoining village, Rockcliffe, and with stunning views to islands in the bay. The spacious open plan living room is very comfortably furnished with a dining area and 2 leather sofas and large armchair...Sleeping up to 6 in 3 bedrooms and fully equipped for self-catering this solid-built pine log cabin is open to let all year round.

Clean, comfortable, spacious, warm, equipped with everything you could possibly need for a top-notch holiday. Delightful setting too, with plenty of wildlife around, lovely walks and the picturesque village of Kippford a stroll away for waterside pubs, cafes and great ice cream. Recommend a trip...More
