Area
Southerness is a small coastal village established in the late 18th century, which looks out over the Solway Firth, and forms part of the Colvend coast, one of the finest stretches of coastline on the 'Scottish Riviera'. Home to two pubs, a village store, a leisure centre with a pool and two miles of sandy beaches with sand dunes, rock pools and Gulf Stream warmed waters, and one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland, built in 1748, it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The nearby Criffel Hill rises to 569m, offers wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary below, and provides great walking opportunities. The Southerness Championship Golf Course adjoins the village and offers panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south and the Galloway Hills to the west. A great location, with something to keep everybody occupied.

Wilma and her family have gone beyond the call of duty to make sure their ‘Spindrift Holiday Cottage’ is a place like home from home.. The high spec bungalow adds so much to the peace, tranquility and serenity of your holiday. The sea view and quietness of the location makes it a real place of calm and an oasis of what holidays are about recharging our lives with all the things that are good for us! And I found them all In Spindrift, Southerness, Dumfries, Scotland. Well done Wilma and Family. John Martin

The cottage is excellent everything you need is there and the view WELL no amount of money could but that VIEW.. Amazing sunset and we were lucky to see a full moon on a clear night, we have some beautiful pics. One thing to mention should you be there Match to October the chip shop is excellent but get there early we waited 40mins. in the queue it was a Friday but was worth it. Checking our dates for our next visit. Thanks for all the wee extras in the fridge much appreciated.

Spindrift was everything we hoped for - we struggled to find an affordable beachfront property in a quiet area that is pet free - but Spindrift ticks all the boxes with the added bonus of introducing us to a part of Scotland that we’ve never visited before.. Immaculate property, all mod cons, beautiful bathrooms (one for each bedroom) and the open plan layout of the living/dining/kitchen area gives a lovely spacious feeling. So much light from the windows looking out over the beach, you can literally sit in the comfort of the bungalow and feel as if you’re on the beach amongst the wonderful wildlife looking over towards Cumbria. We were blessed with beautiful weather all week and were mesmerised by the tidal changes and ever-changing view. A stunning coastline allows you to wander for miles without needing the car. Thanks so much to Wilma and Joe for a very relaxing break in a beautiful quiet location.

What an amazing place to stay. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped for all your needs. The bungalow has underfloor heating and a wood burning stove (if needed). Walk in showers and plenty of hot water. The view from the living room is amazing, overlooking the beach and sea. We spent many nights just chilling looking out of the window. Plenty of places to visit, I'd recommend kirkcudbright and Logan botanical gardens. There is a takeaway by the caravan park and their fish and chips are fantastic. Half hour drive you have morrisons, Tedco or Aldi and Tesco does deliver to bungalow. All I can say is Wilma is a lovely host and there was not a thing I could complain about. Stunning home with stunning views.

This lovely cottage is located right on the waters edge with stunning views of the Solway Firth.. We could step down the rocks and be on the beach where you can walk for miles when the tide is out. The cottage had all the necessary amenities and was beautifully decorated. Great for anyone that needs everything on one level including bedrooms. It was lovely to have 3 full baths - 2 were ensuites. Bedrooms were lovely and beds were comfortable. The host Wilma is a lovely lady that made us feel very welcome The little extras at the cottage were a welcome change - Coffee machine with pods - Full fridge with ice maker - washer and dryer - 2 ovens - beautiful showers with rain heads - wood burning fire with wood supplied - lots of parking We loved our week at Spindrift.

What can I say spindrift was out of this world. Wilma and her husband certainly have a fabulous bungalow felt like home from home and to really top it off the views of the solway Firth was worth a million pounds. And everything you needed was in the bungalow ( Wilma and her husband had thought of everything). Out of all the holidays my family have been on nothing can top this one. And as a extra bonus we had glorious weather we shall without a doubt be back in the near future again thank you for sharing your beautiful bungalow. Margaret,Dave and Louise.

Spindrift was out of this world.. Wilma the owner went out of her way to make our holiday like home from home the views were spectacular worth a million pounds. And everything you needed in the bungalow was there Wilma and her husband had thought off everything. Out off all the holidays we have been on ( which is a lot ) this by far had been the best don’t think anything can top this. And as a bonus we had fabulous weather. We shall certainly be back.

Our 3rd visit to this beautiful cottage and we’re already looking forward to our 4th! Ideal location for walks on the beach and a perfect place to escape to! Love it!

We had the loveliest holiday made better by having spindrift as our base.. The bungalow had everything we needed and was warm and comfortable and smelt divine! Excellent communication with Wilma the owner. Spectacular location, could have just sat looking out at the view every day. Would highly recommend.

This Cottage is exactly as detailed +++.. The location is breathtaking. Watching the tide come in and out each day is fascinating. We were blessed with good weather which made the stay even more enjoyable. On arrival the cottage was spotless. Each bedroom was immaculate with a bathroom for each bedroom, 2 en-suite and the master bedroom had the master bathroom just outside its door. The American Fridge-freezer was a godsend. A must to visit is Kypford and Rockcliffe. These are only 4 miles away and had spectacular bays and walks. Without any hesitation I would recommend this cottage and we will be back again, if the price is right. Thank you Wilma. You have a beautiful cottage.

An excellent 5* self catering accommodation with everything you could wish for to make an ideal holiday home.. It is exceptional with underfloor heating, a wood burner, all kitchen utensils & equipment, comfy & plenty of sofas & chairs, large dining table & 8 chairs and how often do you find a property that has 2 ensuites & 1 family bathroom. The view is stunning overlooking Solway Firth & even though in a small residential area it was very quiet on our visit in October. A warm welcome from the owners of Spindrift. I would definitely recommend this property.

Fantastic cottage! It felt more like a hotel, as the owners have pretty much thought of everything to make you feel comfortable. When we got there the owner was still there, despite us being quite late due to the length of our journey, but she was more than happy to show us round. Our first words were 'WOW'! The location is amazingly unique. The view across the Solway Firth is incredible! I could sit all day and watch the changing hues of the sky and the birds. We saw otters on the beach most evenings. The cottage is well equipped with a brilliant fridge/freezer, good washing machine and dryer, full-size dishwasher and very good oven and hob. There were plenty of cups, plates and utensils. The en-suites in two of the bedrooms are really spacious with very large showers and the same goes for the separate bathroom. Huge bath that seemed more like a hot tub! The beds were comfy, though we have back problems and found them a tad too soft. Had a bit of backache, but could live with it. Southerness itself is an odd mix of old and new. Not really much there, though there is a mini-mart and a few amusements that are linked to the caravan park. We never used the Paul Jones Hotel to eat at, choosing the nearby Steamboat Inn at Caresthorne, which is fantastic! Once tried, you have to go back! Dumfries is about 16 miles away and is a good place to shop. Lots of interesting places in the area to visit too. In all Spindrift proved a very comfortable base for our holiday. We would certainly rent it again.

We have rented this bungalow twice. There are superb views over the estuary, can't fault it at all. The property is located right at the side of the beach. It is brilliant for kids who love rock pooling and playing on the beach. Can use the leisure centre swimming pool at Park Dean caravan park for a small charge. The bungalow has everything you need. We just love it there.

This has been a fantastic holiday...... The owners have created a wonderful property full of all the mod cons you could wish for to make your stay as comfortable and user friendly as possible. The views from the main open plan living area are just sublime, the sunrises and sunsets are awesome (yes.....even in February!). We only had 2 cloudy days out of 7 and had wall to wall sunshine on the day we drove out to the Mull of Galloway (well worth the 2 hour drive) and could see right out to the Isle of Man and Ireland. Having the Paul Jones Hotel a 2 minute walk away and The Steamboat Inn about 10 minutes by car is very handy too, if you can resist making your own food in the well equipped kitchen. You will not be disappointed if you choose to holiday in Spindrift.

What a fantastic property, not a single detail has been missed by Wilma and Joe, the fixtures and fittings are high end and sparkling clean. The layout of the bungalow is ideal, nice dining area, well equipped kitchen and the living area is laid out so you can sit and relax looking out at the magnificent views. The beds and ensuite bathrooms are perfect. Thank you to Wilma and Joe for providing us with the best place for us to relax and the children to have a safe garden area to run off all their energy. We shall return and hopefully very soon.

Me and 6 friends hired this cottage for a week in July and it was the best holiday rental I have ever seen. The place was immaculate and to a very high standard. The open plan of the living area created a lovely homely feel and there was plenty of room for everyone. Also the cottage has literally everything you need and more, it was full of kitchen utensils, a washer and dryer and even a coffee machine. The beds were very comfy and the rooms spacious with clean high spec en-suites. The place has an amazing view of the beach which is at the bottom of the grass; we spent many hours on there observing the jellyfish and crabs. Furthermore the outdoor area is great with chairs and table supplied and a bbq for you to use. The owner also greeted us and gave us a tour of the place which was very helpful. By the end of the week we didn't want to leave but I am sure we will be back. I give this place a 100% and would recommend it to anyone!!! Thanks to the owners for our brilliant holiday
