This delightful, detached, single-storey beach house stands in a magnificent position with direct access onto 2 miles of sandy beaches and rock pools, and sits right next to the 13th green of the local golf course, making it an ideal holiday location. The uninterrupted views of the sea and shore line with the Lakeland Fells to the south and Criffel and the Galloway hills to the east are breathtaking. This seaside holiday home provides comfortable and well equipped ’beach house’ style accommodation with level access to the oceanside patio from the living room, the en-suite bedroom, the adjacent bedroom and the conservatory. The light and spacious, open plan living space has three large picture windows spanning three of the walls taking advantage of the spectacular panoramic views and making this a wonderful year round retreat. The shower room is large and has a walk-in shower, and is wheelchair accessible. In the conservatory, there is a bar area with a drinks chiller. The small village of Southerness with its quaint lighthouse stands on the Solway Firth and is home to an outstanding championship golf course which borders the property and welcomes visitors. For bird watchers the RSPB nature reserve is just along the coast at Mersehead. Golf, cycling, walking and exploring rock pools is direct from the doorstep, so overall this is an ideal holiday location for beachcombers and outdoor enthusiasts (there is bike and golf club storage in the property). Other attractions nearby include, Sweetheart Abbey, Drumlanrig Castle and gardens and Mabie Farm Park and Forest, which has wonderful cycle routes. This area of Dumfries and Galloway is steeped in Border history and is rich in historical attractions including many castles, Robbie Burns connections and interesting towns and villages which host a lively calendar of festivals and events.

A lovely comfortable home from home. Lots of space, great views, fantastic beach. Well equipped and clean and welcoming. Owner was lovely, friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful holiday here and didn’t want to leave.

A real little gem with absolutely stunning views. Everything we needed within the kitchen as far as utensils were concerned with an abundance of cutlery, crockery and glasses. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was attentive and helpful. We had a lovely family get together and Driftwood catered for the three generations with so much room to spread around if necessary.

An inspiring space to be in. Last came in 2017. New owners have maintained all the special features of the house that we appreciated the first time. Can't be many places with as exciting a position as this house has. Big and spacious and well furnished and appointed and clean and no stairs. Perfect!
