Guest Reviews

10 Oct 2018 “Sanderling is the perfectly placed cottage for a get away from it all holiday. Quiet and remote but not too remote to feel isolated. Linda and David have thought about every comfort. A lovely welcome hamper was waiting for us. The bedding on the comfortable king size bed was excellent quality. Roomy bathroom with large separate walk-in shower and kitchen amply stocked for ‘cooking at home’. Even Haggis (the dog) was well catered for with treats, bowls and toys. Positioned half way between two beaches and scenic coastal path on the doorstep. Perfect.”

Tips for other travellers

Our favourite restaurant was the one within the Loch Arthur Farm Shop (dogs only allowed outside). We also ate at the Anchor Inn in Kippford and the Steam Boat Inn at Carsethorn. Both good pub food.
Local produce market at Colvend Village Hall, I think is on every third Saturday.”


Dec 2018 “We could not have asked for more during our long winter weekend at Sanderling. Every little detail has been thought of – from decor, to guest/cottage information, to quality of interiors like pillows, mattresses and duvets. So much care and attention has gone into the property and it really shows. The cottage is beautiful with an old world charm yet everything inside feels very new and spotlessly clean. The area is breathtaking – walks on the doorstep, an abundance of wildlife and friendly people everywhere. I’m reluctant to use the word idyllic but really nothing else sums it up. Thank you so much Linda! I will definitely be back in the spring.”

Tips for other travellers
“The Rockcliffe – Sandyhills walk which passes right by the cottage is breathtaking (just don’t get lost like me and end up knee deep in mud and in someone’s farm!). Star gazing at Galloway Forest about a 40 min drive away (sadly it was cloudy/snowing on the night we visited but the forest was beautiful). The Lock Arthur farm shop as recommended by Linda was a great place for lunch and stocking up on essentials.”

    "Baden Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire Family "We had an excellent holiday in the best cottage we have ever rented. Cottage well appointed, with lots of room and equipment. Lovely, very quiet and peacefull location. would most certainly like to stay here again." Helen Whaley Bridge Couple "We had a lovely break of a week at Sanderling and want to return again next year. It is in such a lovely quiet position and we got to four beaches in one day, for the dog's benefit of course! We had just about everything we needed at the cottage and it was very clean which is always important for us.""
