What a wonderful setting for a post-lockdown break! Lovely cottage – great attention to detail. Very comfortable regardless of a lot of rain. Dogs loved it. Stunning area and well worth a return visit. Outstanding hospitality, care, arrangements and high quality accommodation.

We had a wonderful stay in Rockcliffe, helped by some brilliant weather. Lots of good walks to be had, especially Rockcliffe to Sandhills and Rockcliffe to Kippford and back. Threave Garden is lovely and Castle Douglas is worth a visit. Check out the Sulwath Brewery and the Harris & Company Deli. We would recommend buying bird seed/peanuts for the many visiting birds and resident squirrels. Magic! Great location and very relaxing.

Had a relaxing week, spacious homely cottage. First 2-3 days good weather, never need the car, just walked and walked by the coast. All cafes very good in Kippford. We have stayed in the area for many years. This is one of the nieces properties so far. We will be back. Thank you!

Although the BBC weather app said this week was going to be a non-stop grey cloud, we’ve had weather like a greek island – enormous blue skies, swimming in the sea and loch ken, a lovely trip to the ethereal coast @ RSPB Mersehead, a sunset picnic on the rocks and a walk around Rough Island at low tide. We’ve seen oystercatchers, skyhawks and all sorts of other wonderful creatures out and about but our best decision by far was buying bags of birdseed and nuts from Londis in Colvend (it’s behind the counter) and filling up the feeders upstairs and the box on the tree opposite – daily visits from at least two red squirrels and a great spotted woodpecker. Very sad to leave.

Had an amazing stay. The Barn was a perfect place to stay. Peaceful and relaxing. Some of our favourite activities were: Mabie Forest (yellow trail and great views), Mersehead RSPB Reserve (amazing empty beach half-way round the walk!), walk from Rockcliffe to Sandhills and the walk to Kippford. The puppies had some epic runs on beaches. When the Rockcliffe tide was out they had the entire beach to run on. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you!
