My friend and our partners were in town for a Valentines/sightseeing trip and We wanted something out of the main towns. We decided on new abbey partly for the great price and that it was close to a few places we wanted to visit!
The cottage is lovely, clean and modern with some cosy features! We LOVED the fire especially! There's a shop nearby that we got our breakfast supplies from the next morning and there was a really great selection for a small shop! Our partners ventured out for a walk while we went to the abbey in the town! Its got a great history for a small place and we feel like the town is like a picture book (we took so many photos of the views alone)! Beautiful fields and the tea room served delicious food!
We braved the weather and took the car out to the beach for our valentines BBQ and although the weather wasn't all that great we would love to go back in summer to get the full benefits! Lots of birdlife around Southerness and the beach was clean and free of litter!
Local pubs are quiet but have a nice atmosphere and Its a quick drive to Dumfries and Castle Douglas! We went into both towns during our week here and we felt so relaxed during our stay - the townspeople are very friendly too! We'll definitely be back soon!
