Seascape Cottage, Kirkcolm, Stranraer, Sleeps 4

Pets Welcome - Wifi - Pets Welcome

Seascape Cottage is situated in a beautiful and remote coastal location just a short walk from Dally Bay. The detached property is tastefully furnished, and enjoys views across to Ireland and the mountains of Mourne. This location is perfect for a relaxing holiday with small rocky sandy beaches within a short walk, making Seascape Cottage ideal for the pet owner.

The accommodation at the property is all on the one level, and consists of an open plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen, a master bedroom with a king size bed, a twin bedroom, and a shower room. Beautiful oak flooring is laid throughout and the bathroom benefits from a tiled floor complete with under floor heating. The living room and the main bedroom are located at the front of the property and enjoy exceptional coastline views. Outside guests will find garden furniture and private parking. The owners live in a neighbouring cottage and are on hand to help if required.

Stranraer is just nine miles away and offers a good range of facilities for the visitor including shops, restaurants, a supermarket and a Tourist information Centre. Further afield the romantic village of Portpatrick is well worth a visit, with its pretty harbour area, hotels, bar and restaurants including the highly rated Campbell's Fish Restaurant which serves the local catch.

The Rhins of Galloway is stunning. No matter where you go the coastline is not far away, at the southern tip the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and Vistor Centre are well worth a visit and an ideal choice for a day out. The area is a haven for wildlife and there are many gardens to visit including Logan Botanic Garden and Ardwell Gardens A short drive will take you to Aldouran wetland garden and ancient woodland of Aldouran Glen, at Leswalt. A few minutes further is the Wig, situated on the shores of Loch Ryan at Kirkcolm, where there is a circular walk and bird watching area.

There are numerous quirky ancient and historical sites, while the area offers ample roads and tracks for cyclists and runners. Visiting golfers are welcome at stunning coastal courses in both Stranraer and Portpatrick. Further afield is Galloway Forest Park with its celebrated Dark Sky Park Observatory for stargazers of all ages. And with Wigtown’s numerous bookshops and Kirkudbright’s arts and crafts shops and studios, surely this location offers something for everyone.

The immediate area surrounding the cottage is rich in wildlife, such as deer, seals, stoats and weasels and a small herd of wild goats. Diving gannets are an experience never forgotten, seals float for hours in the bay, and eider ducks gather in the spring and summer. If you get lucky, you may even spot otters, or at Corsewall Lighthouse, a few minutes drive away, basking sharks and porpoise.

Buzzards and kestrels, among other birds of prey, give aerial displays or hover motionless outside the cottage. Murmerations of starlings are common too. Early morning walks will almost certainly be rewarded by close encounters with deer and hares, or the elusive wild goats. Wild flowers are in abundance, from carpets of Spring squill and bluebells, to yellow iris and various orchids.

Seascape Cottage looks forward to welcoming you warmly, whatever the west coast weather has in store!

This was our second visit to seascape cottage, we have had a wonderful week, beautiful weather for February too! Sarah is such an amazing host and the welcome pack was huge-very generous ! The bays and coves, the views from the floor to ceiling windows, the wildlife, the peace and tranquility of the area is second to none. The cottage was spotless on arrival. Sarah has thought of everything from dishwasher tablets and tin foil to fishing nets and balls for the dog etc. We loved seeing the deer in the field at breakfast and seals bobbing about in the bay-wish we could have stayed longer. We hope to be back soon! Thank you once again for a wonderful stay.

Seascape is a fantastic holiday cottage that exceeded our expectations. The location was superb, with stunning views of the sea and the hills. We loved walking on the two nearby beaches, which were clean and sandy. Our dog also had a great time on the beach and in the sea, running, digging and splashing around. The cottage itself was cozy and well equipped, with everything we could ask for. The hosts were very kind and generous, greeting us with a delicious welcome pack with local products and sharing some of their homegrown rhubarb with us. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at Seascape and would definitely come back again.

We all have different wants and needs from the place we are going to call home for a short period, We wanted Wilderness!, hence the website, we wanted by the coast, hence "seascape", we wanted seclusion, peace and an environment opposite to our manicured grasslands, inland farming location. To have all this I expected we would have to compromise on something, perhaps bed comfort, water temperature, view etc, How wrong I was, Seascape delivered on everything and in all cases surpassed all expectations. The complementary welcome pack was a lovely surprise, the cottage was homely, well equipped, Sarah was a delight! Location, well where else can you watch the solan goose diving for fish " from your bed" If you have a love for the wild and woolly rugged west coast with its secret bays and rocks, tides and changeable weather, this cottage does what it says on the tin. Go and experience, you will not regret it, and probably remember it for ever. ( Note! Pubs and shops a short drive) just stock up. Advice! do not take the sports car as you may lose the exhaust going down the lane. Enjoy

Wonderful to swap the soundtrack to everyday life for the song of skylarks and waves washing onto the shore. Precious time simply to sit, look and truly 'switch off'. Perfect for the bird and wildlife watcher, as I am. The accommodation is exactly what I like - all that is needed and nothing fussy or extraneous; a well equipped kitchen and excellent bathroom.

We had an amazing stay at Seascape Cottage and could not recommend it highly enough. The cottages location is by far the best we have stayed in, its very remote but if you want a real 'escape from it all' then this is the one for you. We went in February and it was so nice coming in from our exploring to a cosy, warm cottage. The views are astounding, the beaches that are walking distance from the cottage are beautiful and you get them all to yourself! The wildlife encounters were very memorable, deer, hares and seals basking on the rocks. Nearby Culzean Castle is worth a visit, the Galloway Forest Park had some good walks, Portpatrick and Mull of Galloway lighthouse (excellent coffee shop) were all highlights of this area of Scotland. Can't wait to go back.

This has been our sixth visit to Seascape and despite some rain we have been out every day for at least 4 hours walking along this beautiful coastline. The views are spectacular and we have had a couple of stormy days where the waves have been crashing onto the rocks which was amazing to watch and fantastic to photograph. We have not seen as much of the seals this year but the deer have been right outside the door several times each day. We have toasted Marshmallows by the sea, played pooh sticks under the little bridge ,played hide and seek among the rocks and rounders on the beach. There really is something for everyone.

It's all in the name and all about the location. We spent a week at Seascape Cottage and loved every minute. As soon as we saw the location, just a couple of minutes walk from the shoreline we were happy. We were warmly welcomed by Jane & Chaz, who live directly behind the cottage, but were never intrusive. The cottage had quality fixtures and fittings, comfortable sofas and beds and is warm (there is a brilliant heating system), the wonderful view out to sea changes with the weather. A major factor for us was how dog friendly the cottage is and without too many rules; throws, extra dog beds and bowls are provided. We had some wonderful walks just exploring the seashore in either direction. We saw deer and a hare from the cottage window and watched gannets diving in the sea with the binoculars provided. All in all a wonderful place for a very quiet, get away from it all, relaxing holiday.

We stayed here over Christmas and New Year and really enjoyed the quiet location with easy access to the coast. We had my disabled Father with us and the cottage was ideal for him to tootle around. This is a very cosy place and I think we have all missed the underfloor heating after returning home! Jane and Chas did a meet and greet and then left us to it. There is only a small fridge and I had taken far too much food to last the Festive Season, so ran out of space for storage. I would definitely recommend for a peaceful getaway.

Great holiday stay. We were looking for quiet and we got it. The views over to Ireland were awesome when the weather allowed. We arrived just in time for storm Ophillia and we enjoyed that very much (we love storms) had a power cut and be warned no light pollution so it was DARK! On clear nights you can see the milky way as it is so DARK that was an awesome sight. Plenty to do in the area with some great food outlets to done at. The Cottage is a home from home with every comfort you would look for and berry comfortable. The under floor heating is a bit too efficient so be warned as the house takes a while to Coll down as we discovered after someone turned the thermostat up too high! The only visitors we had were the birds and a Hate that came past the house same time each day. The owners are directly behind the Cottage but once they had welcomed us in they left us to it but we knew we could call on them if needed. Very nice couple and very genuine. We had a great relaxing time and yes we hope to return for another relaxing stay.

Just returned from a fantastic week at Seascape, despite its isolated setting we found it easy enough from the directions (though wouldn't want to find it in the dark!). Perfect hosts in Chas and Jane who were very welcoming but very unobtrusive and thoughtful. Amazing views form the cottage and only a minute down to the stunning beachy cove. Fantastic week relaxing in the stunning countryside and then curling up in the cosy warm cottage to watch films! Can't wait for the next visit!

We had a fantastic week at Seascape. The cottage itself is brilliant. Everything you could possibly need has been provided for. Jane and Chas (the owners) were incredibly welcoming, thank you for the jam and the wine! The location is sublime, I think I must have spent most of the week gazing at the sea! We had been there for less than an hour when we saw roe deer and a fox on the beach, and of course the seals were in the bay most days. I can't recommend highly enough, everything was perfect.

Our stay at Seascape was perfect more than we expected, warm comfortable and well equipped. Brilliant sea views and marvelous sunsets have a walk to the top of the hill and watch the sun go down over the horizon a walk back down to the cottage and maybe a glass off wine to finish your day. We were fortunate in in having two roe deer visit us outside the door seals in the bay most nights. Chas was there to greet us very informative but never intrusive if you want to know anything just ask Plenty of gardens which are well worth a visit also Port Patrick. Kirkcolm post office for bits and pieces or a short drive to Stranraer for anything else. Don,t often return to the same place but will be returning to Seascape Many thanks for the use of your lovely cottage

Our stay at Seascape cottage was what we wanted, isolated but within reach (15 min approx) from Stranraer, the owners Chas & Jane have catered for just about everything you'll need. From the cottage to the shore line you have a 2 or 3 minute down hill walk which on the way back you have a slight rise to climb. There are good walks along the shore (bring walking boots). The cottage has no wifi and you need to a short distance by car for a signal, but that's part of the attraction to get away from it all and chill out! Perfect.

We spent 3 nights at Seascape Cottage - a perfect 'get away from it all' cottage. The location was just what we wanted - close to the sea with terrific sea views from the living room and main bedroom. The cottage was warm, very well equipped and very comfortable. And the owners were very friendly and helpful. There's no wi-fi or mobile reception at the cottage, which is fine if you are happy to be 'off grid' - but you can get a signal just up the hill from the cottage.

Cracker their Lurcher was a delight. Wonderful weather for our 2 weeks with some spectacular sunsets over the sea and N. Ireland. A treat to be able to see the Milky Way. A great place for buzzards and kestrels. A flock of Lapwings on the way to Portpatrick was a bonus. We saw the wild goats just down the coast but failed to see the deer. All in all a magical secluded place.

Great place to relax and enjoy the solitude. Really peaceful and fantastic views to the sea and even across to Ireland. Wildlife is in abundance ( watch the seals from the lounge window ) and fishing is just a walk down the field or a short car ride to Loch Ryan. Dogs welcome and plenty of space for them to have a good walk and many walks available for the humans. The accommodation itself was first class, everything you need plus clean and tidy.

The wheelchair accessiblity in the cottage was very good although the shower not particularly built for a wheelchair. Our dogs were made most welcome and we were able to park our little trailer right outside the house which doubled up as a dog kennel (for our muddy alsation) when we weren't using it to transport my husbands electric scooter around. The lanes and local tracks were great for exploring by mobility scooter and we could even get it on to the beach - great!

We stayed at seascape cottage. The owners were there to welcome us to the most beautiful cottage with outstanding views. To say that the owners are nothing less than helpful and welcoming would be an understatement. Welcomed with a smile, and homemade produce started our holiday off to a wonderful start. Not to mention that they are so helpful and truly the nicest couple! Everything in the cottage is of excellent standard and quality. The best equipped cottage we have EVER stayed in, with extras like dog beds, bowls even washing tablets to last you the full week. Not including poop bags for the dogs and a ball!! Super beds, and comfy sofas welcome you after the long and beautiful walks with the dogs. Outstanding decor and such a welcoming environment as soon as you walk in the door. And not one thing has been forgotten about. I wish on cottages like this, there was an extra rating, because excellent just doesn't seem to describe this cottage and the stay that we had here. Its way above that, and I really can't wait till we go back next year

If you appreciate beautiful and peaceful countryside - then Seascape Cottage is ideal for you! The cottage is located down a rural lane and overlooks fields - with views across the sea to Ireland. Plenty of places to walk your dog and enjoy the lovely coastal scenery. Seascape is very well equipped with modern appliances, tasteful furnishings and is spotlessly clean. The bathroom is spacious and the shower warm and powerful. The cottage owners, Chaz and Jane live close-by and are a lovely couple. They take great care not to 'intrude' but frankly we much enjoyed their pleasant company. The location of the cottage is also well placed for those guests wishing to visit the many excellent gardens in the vicinity. Being warmed by the Gulf Stream these gardens can grow the tender exotic plants that most of us in the UK can only dream about. We would particularly recommend Logan Botanic Garden. Finally, Seascape Cottage not only 'accepts' dogs but 'welcomes' them - so our Bichon Frise had a great holiday too.

What a gorgeous, peaceful, tranquil place to holiday. The cottage is delightful, down a long wobbly farm track. If you want to get away from it all this is your place, with no mobile or wifi reception. You will be surrounded by an abundance of wildlife to keep you company. In our one, hot and sunny week, we saw Hares, Pheasants, Roe dear, Grouse, Seals, Otter, Heron, an abundance of colourful little birds with delightfully inquisitive cows for neighbours. Dally Bay and beach is a very quiet little beach, just a couple of minutes walk from the front door, where our little dog enjoyed running around. This is a perfect spot to explore the Rhines of Galloway and surrounding area from. The owners of the cottage live in their own house just behind, and are on hand for advice of the area, yet very respectful of your own privacy. Highly recommended for a restful holiday, in Southern Scotland.

I stayed in Seascape Cottage for four nights, along with my sister and my German Shepherd dog. The cottage is situated along a farm track and looks out over the fields and the bay. We were welcomed warmly by Jane, the owner, and also by the neighbour cows! Everything in the cottage is of a high standard and we lacked for nothing as it was very well equipped and comfortable. The views from the cottage and down on the bay were beautiful. Although it was November the weather was kind to us and the sunsets were stunning for our first two nights. The dog loved the field across the road as well as the bay where she could run as much as she liked. We visited Stranraer and Portpatrick (where we had lunch in the Crown Hotel as they allow dogs in the restaurant.) I would be happy to recommend Seascape Cottage to anyone.
