Had a fantastic week! The playground in the garden kept my grandson entertained for the full week, we could not get him inside.

We had a wonderful week! The cottage was fantastic, everything we needed was there and lots of extras as well. The beach was right at the back garden, and our dogs had great fun!

The facilities and location suited the children and the teenagers, as well as the adults. The beach right at the end of the garden was amazing, either to access directly, or sit and look out over the sands. The cottage itself was comfortable and well equipped and was very child friendly. The owner is a wonderful man, who couldn't do enough for us, what a character!

What a fantastic cottage, great location, wonderful facilities and a fantastic owner. We couldn't have hoped for better. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to any family looking for a fantastic holiday. I hope we can return soon,

There was so much to do and like within the property, the two children were never bored. The location is excellent, with all sorts within reach. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Would not hesitate to visit again or recommend to relatives and friends.

To start with, what an amazing host the owner is. It was truly out of this world, my hubby and I had taken my mother, our daughter, two grandsons, nephew and our two tiny dogs with us. The boys especially didn't want to come home, they had the time of their lives! Anybody that reads this review, please don't hesitate to go here. The beach was fantastic and you are so close to it. We are already planning our next trip back, hopefully this year and if not, definitely next. Thanks again to the owner, a true gentleman.

It was perfect for our group of friends and we all enjoyed the cottage. Found the owner very helpful it was situated ideally and we found the local ameneties perfect

We loved the location of this cottage right next to the beach with spectacular views. It was a really relaxing place with a warm and friendly welcome. I will definitely go again.

The accommodation and views were excellent. The owner was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. Overall we would recommend this cottage to anyone. We would definitely like to go back again.

The cottage was in an excellent position with easy access to the surrounding area. The owner was extremely hospitable and helpful. The garden for the children was particularly appreciated.

Totally family and pet friendly, with a great owner who was most helpful. All in all a great property with many pleasant surprises.

The location was excellent, the size overall was great. The owner was very friendly and approachable. This is a great place to get away from it all and enjoy the views. The Paul Jones Hotel just down the path was great for food, atmosphere and was pet friendly.

This cottage has everything for every member of the family.

There were 8 of us here, two of which were children who barley spent any time in the house - they were in the garden and other play areas on the property. Amazing, we would definitely go back. Owner was lovely and helpful, but never intrusive to our time there. Feeling super relaxed now after our stay.

The activities equipment available at no charge for both adults and children were exceptional. Excellent location. Comfortable interiors.

We had a wonderfully relaxing Christmas week at Beachcomber Cottage. The kids loved the outdoor play area. The games room was also amazing. We've never been to a property so well equipped with entertainment for the kids and adults alike! It was fabulous to walk along the beach most days n the week.

I felt the property was child friendly and catered for all the members of the family of all different ages.

Loved all the games, pool, bar, outside area and the location were excellent. A great holiday

Although the weather was bad and with 6 grandchildren aged 7 to 14 years old to keep amused, we did not hear 1 cry of I'm bored. The owner has excelled in providing everything to keep all ages, including us pensioners, entertained.

The family had a super holiday, the cottage was excellent. It had everything you needed. The beach was so close,for the dog's & kids. The kids have requested to go there again.

The house was amazing but the garden was out of this world for children! The owner was extremely friendly. We had an excellent holiday!!

The cottage is all you would want for a holiday and more. The rooms are very good, the kitchen excellent and the huge shower room and bath was more than sufficient. The extra toilet is a bonus. What can I say about the garden that nobody else has said. Perfect for young and old and being one of the latter even I was on the trampoline. The bar and pool room is a bit of genius. Had lots of good times in there darts, dominoes, pool bandit and even dancing. Have and will continue to do so, recommend it to many. Please continue the good work. Even the weather was perfect.

The owner greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The property is excellent for a family holiday, it caters for everything from children to dogs. The cottage has all the facilities we needed, living room in particular is excellent, very spacious and comfortable. Location is also excellent, nice and central for the many attractions in Dumfries and Galloway.

Beachcomber Cottage is absolutely perfect for a family holiday. There was lots for the kids to do at the house should the weather not be kind, but also a brilliant base from which to explore the area. The owner is warm and friendly and actively seeks feedback on how to make this wonderful cottage an even better place to stay. We can't recommend this house highly enough!

Everything about the cottage was first class, there were three generations and each one of us had a great time. The owner made you feel very welcome, especially the children. There was so much to do at the cottage we never left it, even our dog had a great time. Big thank you!

Beachcomber cottage was fantastic, great space, comfortable, very warm, and the views were exceptional. Ideal location for us to chill out before winter sets in and the space outside for dogs and children was great. We will definitely book the cottage again as ideal for dogs and grandchildren.

The cottage was warm and inviting, cosy and comfortable. The facilities were second to none. There were 4 generations and everyone said they would love to return. My 11 year old granddaughter loved the trampoline and bikes and being on the beach. All the family enjoyed dining al fresco. My Dad is 87 and he said he had never had such a relaxing time.

The close proximity to the coast was excellent for walking the dogs whenever we wanted and going out of season meant we practically had it to ourselves. The owner has thought of everything for the family or adult only holiday with a wide range of entertainment from books and DVD's to a fully equipped games room, trampoline and play area. Even the garden had a sand pit area if you want to keep them safe and close. A most relaxing holiday for the 4 adults and 2 dogs but would suit a holidaying family just as well.

The attention to comfort inside and outside of the property. It was very well equipped and in an excellent position.

This was certainly a GREAT holiday! The amenities; excellent pool table, dartboard, football table, everything you could wish for.

Very cosy cottage. Very quiet location, close to sea, wildlife and walks.

Right on the beach with wonderful views and lots of things in the garden for children.

We enjoyed our holiday very much and particularly liked how well the cottage catered for families.

Excellent for young children.

The cottage was right on the beach with fabulous views. The children loved the garden with the swings, slides, play house, trampoline and sand (which was like our own private beach to dig in). We also had access to the pool room which had pool table, football table and darts to keep us entertained on rainy days. A beautiful cottage with everything you could want catered for. There were lots of lovely forest walks to do nearby and a lovely riding centre 15 mins away.

The cottage was a haven - incredibly comfortable and full of curiosities. Every detail had been considered by the owner and just about everything we could have needed was available. The personal touches of flowers and a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival were lovely. The beach beside the cottage was beautiful and we spent a good few hours walking along it. We had a wonderful romantic week by the sea.

The house was cosy and spacious and very well equipped. Owners were very contactable and made every effort to ensure that we had a nice stay and knew how to get there, operate the appliances/heating etc.

Wonderful week.

Absolutely wonderful week spent at beachcomber, The cottage with everything and MORE you could ever need for the perfect holiday. Homer the owner is a complete gentleman who goes above and beyond to accomodate. We will be back. Thankyou.
