Set in a stunning location by the sea in the quiet village of Carsethorn, this lovely cottage enjoys sweeping views over the Solway Firth, Criffel and the Galloway coastline beyond.
North Corner Cottage is set in a beautiful, quiet and undiscovered part of Scotland, within easy reach of the border and motorways. The cottage looks out onto a magnificent coastline, perfect for watching the migrating birds on the Solway Firth. Situated directly on the coast, with views over the water to watch the porpoises following the shrimping boats and if you are really lucky, to see the otters.
At low tide you can fish from the beach or you could walk along the beach looking for the many fossils that can be found there, before turning inland to visit the historic cottage of John Paul Jones. Or head up the hill from the village and climb Criffel, with magnificent views over the Solway and to the Cumbrian hills in the distance. Continue on and down into New Abbey to enjoy teas at The Abbey Teashop and then catch the bus home.
Mabie Forest, outside Dumfries, and just a few miles from the cottage, is the original mountain biking venue in Dumfries and Galloway, and offers every level of challenge to the cyclist. If you want something gentler, then pedal along the local quiet roads perhaps to Southerness and visit the lighthouse and enjoy a bag of chips or an ice cream. On a little further to Kippford, a pretty village set on the Urr estuary and enjoy a pint at the Anchor or a cup of tea, over looking the boats moored on the river. You could bring your bicycle with you or hire one either from Mabie or Dalbeattie.
We are happy to accept one well behaved dog at the cottage. The garden is enclosed and the beach is good for dog walking anytime of the year.
