This fantastic, semi-detached cottage is only 100 yards from the gentle, sandy bathing beaches of this lovely stretch of the Solway Coast. Fairview offers spacious accommodation right in the middle of the popular seaside conservation village of Rockcliffe, with forest and coastal walks, runs (including round the coast to Kippford, the Solway Yacht Club and local pubs) and a lovely tea shop for midday refreshments. Access to Dalbeattie Forest and the famous 7stanes mountain bike trails are close by as are facilities golf, tennis, fishing, sailing and wind-surfing. Small boats are also allowed to be launched directly from the beach, if you fancy a day sailing and exploring the area, you can imagine being one of the smugglers who used to frequent the area.
The front of the house looks out over the bay towards Rough Island, a National Trust bird sanctuary, which is connected to the shore at low tide. Nearby RSPB Mersehead nature reserve and WWT Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve are also wildlife havens, and are a birdwatchers paradise. Local mountains to climb include Screel Hill, Ben Gairn and Criffell and historic towns to visit include Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright and Gatehouse of Fleet. The wraparound garden provides peace and tranquillity, and is the perfect place to relax in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine as you watch a dramatic Solway sunset. Beach 100 yards. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 2 miles.
