Furnished and equipped to cater for your every need and with a variety of activities within a short drive, including free golf at Colvend (for guests booking for a week or longer). The winner of Countryfile's 'Holiday Destination of the Year 2016', Dumfries and Galloway has it all and your holiday home is at the heart of it. The famous 7 Stanes Cycle Route, the home of the Solway Yacht Club at Kippford, and one of Scotland's top 50 golf courses at Southerness are less than 15 minutes away, while less than a mile away is Colvend Golf Course, 'Scotland's Friendliest Club'. The National Trust calls Rockcliffe 'one of Scotland's prettiest stretches of coastline', perfect for exploring. Add in the amazing variety of wildlife at Caerlaverock, and the ultimate in love stories at Sweetheart Abbey and you have everything for your perfect holiday right on your doorstep. The 5 bedroomed house is furnished to the highest standard and equipped with a Sonos Sound System in all rooms. All bedrooms are en-suite with luxurious bed linen and sumptuous towels. The property is only available for exclusive use so the grounds and features are yours alone to enjoy during your stay. Ideal for a group of friends or that special family occasion, either sharing a meal in the large dining kitchen, watching a film in front of a roaring log fire or enjoying a quiet Sunday morning reading the papers in the Snug, there is something for everyone. The landscaped gardens lead down to the loch where you have your own private boathouse with relaxed seating area and bar, you can fish from the jetty or just simply relax in the hot tub and watch the sun go down. We think the secret to a happy holiday for a large group is to have something for everyone. Within minutes you can go fishing, cycling, golfing, sailing, walking, and so much more. Or simply pull up a chair on the jetty, relax and look out for the swans, cormorants or even an elusive otter. Remember, you have your own Scottish loch at the bottom of your garden! The house has a maximum occupancy of 10 guests, however, for larger groups (up to 14) we have an additional 2-bedroomed apartment in the grounds(see our separate listing FOREST WAY WATERSIDE). The house has oil-fired central heating, Sonos music system in all rooms (download the Sonos Controller app to you smart phone before your visit), and comprises: GROUND FLOOR * Spacious lounge with large comfy sofas set around the wood burning stove; Sky TV with Netflix; patio doors leading to the decking which looks out over the gardens and loch. * Snug with comfy Harris Tweed armchairs and a selection of books and magazines. * Kitchen/dining room with electric oven and hob, large American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, NESPRESSO coffee machine (we will leave a few pods to get you started, but if you have your own favourites, please bring a supply with you) and patio doors to the decking for outside dining. * Utility/boot room with washing machine. * Cloakroom with hand basin and WC. * Three en-suite double bedrooms, two with bathrooms with shower over the bath, hand basin and WC and one with shower room with walk in shower, hand basin and WC. FIRST FLOOR * Master bedroom suite with super king-sized bed, lounge area and en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, hand basin, bidet and WC. * Second bedroom suite with super king-size bed that can convert to twin beds, lounge area and en-suite bathroom with shower over bath, hand basin and WC. BOATHOUSE comprising * Relaxed seating area with bar and electric stove. * Outside decked area with HOT TUB and private jetty. * Use of rowing boat * There is also a full sized table tennis table in the garage (for those rainy Scottish days!) * All heating, electric, bed linen, towels and logs provided. * Cot and highchair available. * Wi-Fi available. * Private parking for 7 cars. * Decked area with garden furniture * Free golf for up to a maximum of 4 players on the course at any time for guests staying 7 days or more at Colvend Golf Course.
