Thank you very much for visiting us @ Beach Cottage and for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. Will put a clothes prop on my 'to do' list - I think most people must use the tumble dryer.
Hopefully we will see you again sometime
Kind regards, Elspeth

“Lovely holiday home from home”

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week in August. There were 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was really thoughtfully done.

The bedrooms were comfortable, the lounge with a lovely view was a very welcoming place to come back to after being on the beach and the kitchen had all the utensils and extras we needed for the week.

The quiet/huge sandy beach just across the quiet road was brilliant for dog walking, playing on and crabbing!

Would definitely come again and would recommend to anyone.

Elspeth was really helpful and pleasant to deal with.

Thank you.

“Great family friendly holiday rental, close to an amazing beach.”
Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Beach cottage is in an amazing location, yards from an amazing beach which, even in the height of the summer holidays, was almost deserted.

The cottage was spotless when we arrived and had all the everyday items so easily forgotten in a holiday rental. Kitchen utensils and cooking equipment were well provisioned and the (presumably home made) Shortbread biscuits left for us on arrival were a nice touch. The views from the lounge made watching the evening draw in over Luce bay one of the highlights of each day.

Too often a holiday let can be a vanilla shell with little personality. Not so with beach cottage. The garden was well tended, which added a touch of colour to the conservatory view and made the holiday rental feel like a home from home. The items left by the owner for us to use were well thought through and Elspeth popped over a couple of times to check we had everything we needed.

The village of Sandhead is quiet and provides a fantastic base for exploring the Mull of Galloway. This is not a location where you'll be fighting the crowds but more somewhere to relax amongst some amazing scenery, with unique attractions around every port.

We chose Beach Cottage based on a recommendation and we'd certainly recommend this place to others.
