Cottage Review:  

Visited this cottage with a friend and 2 dogs the week before Christmas and what a fabulous time we had.

The house feels private due to the well maintained private garden despite the fact these are plenty of other houses along the shore and a large caravan park behind.Theres plenty of room for the dogs to wander around safely with steps down to the beach which can be a bit steep .

There's lots of walking on the beach when the tides out and the uninterrupted views are stunning.

The cottage itself was compact,warm and cosy.We took rugs for the older dog as the floors wooden in the loungs.Take everything with you in winter as the nearest shop is a few miles away and there's only one local pub open Thursday to Sunday.Theres a lot more facilities available during the summer months.

We were looking for somewhere relaxed and comfortable and this wee cottage ticked all the boxes.

Hope to return again.

Cottage Review:  

First came here June 2017 with my husband and two very well behaved pooches. Was beautiful and loved it so much that I booked again for August 2018. Sadly I lost my husband and my eldest dog in the week before my booking so it was just my daughter (12) and myself that ended up coming.

Got to say this place is absolutely stunning, even when it?s rainjng we sat on the bench at the end of the garden and wat he?s the tide come in. Absolutely breathtaking and soul reviving.

I asked my daughter where she would like us to go next year and she said the OysterCatcher so we?ve booked again for next August. Can?t wait to go as I?ve a very psychologically demanding job and will need the rest time.

Really love this place. And my lil dawg Dobby even got over her fear of other dogs here too.

Roll on next August. Definitely recommend 100%

Cottage Review:  

We really enjoyed our stay at Oyster Catcher.The directions given were not very

clear but we contacted the office of Lighthouse Leisure(who own the property)

they were very helpful@arranged for someone to accompany us.

The bungalow is located in a small quiet residential area with fabulous views across

the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian coast.

The accommodation is comfortable,cosy@homely with everything provided for a

great holiday.

The sunny garden has been well designed with plenty of sitting out areas to take

advantage of the view@the sun at various times of the day.

Our dogs had a great time exploring all the nooks@crannies in the safe,private

enclosed garden@with direct access onto the beach it was perfect.The steps

down to the beach are steep@with only a rope as a handrail,it might be difficult

for young children or those less agile.There is easier access to the beach by turning right at the end of lane and walking a few yards down the road.

It's been a perfect holiday sunshine everyday(at times too hot to sit out)perfect location.We're going back next year booking it tomorrow.

Thank you for a great time.

Cottage Review:  

We stayed here for a week & had a lovely, relaxing time. The cottage was difficult to find at first, but the staff gave us great directions over the phone & we found it easily. The rooms were warm & cozy, nice & clean, comfy beds & right on the beach...although the steps down to the beach are steeper than they looked on the photos. We're all pretty agile, but worth considering if there are mobility issues.

The dog absolutely loved it here, running around the beach all day & relaxing beside the fire afterwards...he was exhausted when we left!

We had one wet & wild day weatherwise & it's like the edge of the world, very windy, but it didn't detract from the holiday.

The local shop was a short walk, although it's worth knowing it has reduced hours during the winter, I think the chippy beside it closes during winter months too if you were thinking of a winter break.

We wanted peace & quiet, walks on the beach & relaxation and that's exactly what we got. There is no wifi in the cottage which suited us, but if you live for Facebook, then check before booking.

Cottage was well equipped & staff were helpful & friendly, garden is a good size & the dog loved looking over the fence at everyone going along the beach.

I would stay here again....

Cottage Review:  

Stayed at the Oyster Catcher for one week in Aug 17 with our two children.

Cottage is lovely with beautiful private gardens and access directly onto the beach. Very quiet. Tide goes out a very long way, but this was great for the kids who wanted to go rockpooling. Sandyhills is a short drive away if you want a proper sandy beach.

Kitchen is well equipped, had every thing we needed for a weeks stay. Sofas in the lounge are very comfy, provided us with lovely snug throws. Beds very comfortable.

Southerness is not to everyone's taste as it's so unusual, this was our first visit there and everyone we came across so was friendly.This place is a little treasure.

Local places to eat such as the steamboat inn, Paul Jones hotel are great for food. Cocoa bean choc factory is great for kids.

Would recommend to friends and family.

The house is a lovely wee place with a lovely outlook and a garden that's been well loved in the past. Everything was clean and tidy with pretty much everything I needed equipment wise. I was there at the tail end of March just as things were being made easy for the start of the season so it was still very quiet - just the way I like it! I was there on my own with my dog and there were plenty of walks along the shore and within a 5 mile drive. The beach is not particularly attractive being coarse sand and silt with a lot of broken shell - mainly ( unsurpr
