Choosing places to stay is about location, location, location, and with private sandy beaches, spectacular scenery and prolific wildlife, these delightful holiday properties are the perfect choice for families, couples or friends. Enjoy spectacular views over the Solway Firth to the hills beyond and across fields to Galloway’s most beautiful mountain, Criffel.
West Lodge (31263) is a delightful, detached, 19th-century gate lodge which was at one time the estate schoolhouse, which might account for the unusually ornate slatework on the roof, which makes it look a little like a gingerbread house. It has some of the best views on the estate across the Solway Firth to the Lake District and the Isle of Man, along the Colvend Coast taking in Southerness lighthouse and the Portling cliffs and across rolling farmland to Criffel Mountain. Although it looks small on the outside, it provides comfortable accommodation for 4 guests. The property is all one level but unfortunately the doors may be too narrow for some wheelchairs
Powillimount Cottage (31264) is a three bedroom, traditional stone built Galloway cottage. It is quiet and secluded, surrounded by cornfields and is just a 5-minute walk from a fabulous beach. The cottage has idyllic views of the sea, Southerness Lighthouse and the Lake District Mountains to the front and Criffel, Galloway’s finest mountain behind.
