Beach cottage is located in the small coastal village of Sandhead, with uninterrupted views over Luce Bay and the Galloway hills beyond. The lounge boasts stunning sea views and the conservatory overlooks the secluded garden and woodland at the rear of the property. Beach Cottage has 7 miles of sand on your doorstep! Ideal for entertaining the children or walking the dog! If you have neither it's just great for a relaxing walk and plenty of fresh air - often the beach is deserted so you get it all to yourself. Sandhead has a pub/restaurant, shop and tearoom all within an easy stroll from Beach Cottage.
