Spindrift description

Southerness is a small coastal village established in the late 18th century, which looks out over the Solway Firth, and forms part of the Colvend coast, one of the finest stretches of coastline on the 'Scottish Riviera'. Home to two pubs, a village store, a leisure centre with a pool and two miles of sandy beaches with sand dunes, rock pools and Gulf Stream warmed waters, and one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland, built in 1748, it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The nearby Criffel Hill rises to 569m, offers wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary below, and provides great walking opportunities. The Southerness Championship Golf Course adjoins the village and offers panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south and the Galloway Hills to the west. A great location, with something to keep everybody occupied.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

A very relaxing holiday. The property was well presented very clean and had all the mod cons that you would need. I felt at home straight away and could not fault it.

We have rented this bungalow twice. There are superb views over the estuary, can't fault it at all. The property is located right at the side of the beach. It is brilliant for kids who love rock pooling and playing on the beach. Can use the leisure centre swimming pool at Park Dean caravan park for a small charge. The bungalow has everything you need. We just love it there.

This has been a fantastic holiday...... The owners have created a wonderful property full of all the mod cons you could wish for to make your stay as comfortable and user friendly as possible. The views from the main open plan living area are just sublime, the sunrises and sunsets are awesome (yes.....even in February!). We only had 2 cloudy days out of 7 and had wall to wall sunshine on the day we drove out to the Mull of Galloway (well worth the 2 hour drive) and could see right out to the Isle of Man and Ireland. Having the Paul Jones Hotel a 2 minute walk away and The Steamboat Inn about 10 minutes by car is very handy too, if you can resist making your own food in the well equipped kitchen. You will not be disappointed if you choose to holiday in Spindrift.

Me and 6 friends hired this cottage for a week in July and it was the best holiday rental I have ever seen. The place was immaculate and to a very high standard. The open plan of the living area created a lovely homely feel and there was plenty of room for everyone. Also the cottage has literally everything you need and more, it was full of kitchen utensils, a washer and dryer and even a coffee machine. The beds were very comfy and the rooms spacious with clean high spec en-suites. The place has an amazing view of the beach which is at the bottom of the grass; we spent many hours on there observing the jellyfish and crabs. Furthermore the outdoor area is great with chairs and table supplied and a bbq for you to use. The owner also greeted us and gave us a tour of the place which was very helpful. By the end of the week we didn't want to leave but I am sure we will be back. I give this place a 100% and would recommend it to anyone!!! Thanks to the owners for our brilliant holiday

What a fantastic property, not a single detail has been missed by Wilma and Joe, the fixtures and fittings are high end and sparkling clean. The layout of the bungalow is ideal, nice dining area, well equipped kitchen and the living area is laid out so you can sit and relax looking out at the magnificent views. The beds and ensuite bathrooms are perfect. Thank you to Wilma and Joe for providing us with the best place for us to relax and the children to have a safe garden area to run off all their energy. We shall return and hopefully very soon.
