Holiday Rental House
Spacious retro style hholiday hame with a very relaxed atmosphere set in a stunning location in the popular sailing village of Kippford on the Solway coast, an ideal base for multi-generation family holidays. There is a large unfenced garden with an open pond nearby which backs onto the forest and a large terrace leading off the lounge which overlooks the Urr estuary. Kippford itself has a small sandy beach and two pubs, both of which serve food. There are both forest and coastal walks available from the door, with sailing, golf and fishing all available nearby. The Forestry Commission 7Stanes Mountain Bike Trails are located throughout the region with the nearest being at Dalbeattie Forest about a 5 minute drive away and also in Dumfries at both Mabie & Ae Forests, a little further afield...Spacious retro style hholiday hame with a very relaxed atmosphere set in a stunning location in the popular sailing village of Kippford on the Solway coast, an ideal base for multi-generation family holidays.
