Kippford is a beautiful place to stay and Allonby cottage couldn't be in a better spot. Nestled on the front with fantastic views, it's a perfect base to walk along to Rockcliffe with a great pub just a few doors down (it's still very quiet). The house itself is very clean. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. 3...

The house was warm and well appointed. We enjoyed seeingthe tide come and go and the bird watching was excellent.. The walk to Rockcliffe was easy and brought back many childhood memories of Sunday picnics on the beach. Castle Douglas is an excellent shopping stop off as is Kirkcudbright. Fortunately the weather was reasonable so we spent a lot of...

Thank you for such a lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Allonby Cottage. I never ever tire of watching the tide come and go, and listening to the birds is one of my most favourite things. I too have many fond memories of picnics on the beach.

About the neighbourhood
Kippford has always been a sailing village with large boats mooring at the pier to take quarried granite rock around the world. Today the boats are much smaller and consist of moored sailing yachts and the occasional racing dingy. There is no through road in Kippford, the main road ends at the old Post Office on the front it then turns into a private road that snakes along the shoreline to a shell covered beach called Rough Firth. Kippford has two pubs: The Anchor and The Mariner which both server food, it's possible to sit on the sea wall outside the Anchor and watch the sun fade behind the Galloway hills with a drink (a highly recommended activity).
