“Absolutely Perfect in every detail.”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

From the minute we opened the door we fell in love with the place!
The standard was well above all the previous holiday lets we have had, spotlessly clean, well equipped, comfy beds and plenty of space. Anna's choice in the décor was spot on. We had a lovely relaxing break and the dog enjoyed the beach every morning.
Can't wait to go back.

“Everything you need for a relaxing break, sunshine or wind and rain!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

There were 5 of us staying here all adults.
The weather had just changed from glorious sunshine to gales. This did not spoil our break away though. The walks along the beach were very refreshing and certainly blew the cob webs off. The fantastic wood burner made us feel all cosy, warm and at home, when we got back from our walks.
The décor, and bits and bobs about the cottage are beautiful.
The beds are very comfy which is important on a break away.
The utensils were fantastic, plenty of pots, pans and crokery etc.
Plenty parking.
The people in the Ship pub across the road were friendly and welcoming.

Cottage just as advertised in a beautiful location owner very friendly and helpful we had a welcome pack on arrival which was very nice the interior of the cottage was designed to a great standard I only have one word to say homely plenty of places a short walk away for drinks and food both eat in and takeaway and if you like seaside walks and beautiful scenery looking across the Solway this is for you only downside was the weather but this had no effect on a fantastic break.

We had a great stay at Captain's Cottage and everything was wonderful from the minute we walked in and found a welcome pack of goodies! The cottage was very clean and comfortable, nicely decorated and furnished and very well equipped. The wood burner was great on a couple of cooler evenings. Great view from the side window right over the beach too. The only thing that would have improved it would have been a wi fi connection, but apart from that, it was fantastic! All in all a great stay!
