    Fisherman Cottage is a Victorian, terraced, sandstone villa situated on a delightful elevated site within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is set in a rural position, along with six other properties, one of which being a small castle, yet lies just 1 mile from the village of Glencaple, where there is a tea room, restaurant (within a hotel) and a small shop.

    The fantastic panoramic view over the Solway Firth and River Nith, towards the Lake District, can be enjoyed from nearly every room, and with a large picture window dominating the living area, you really will feel a part of coastal living. Outside, there is enough space for everyone. Dolphins and porpoises can often be seen along with a variety of species of migrating birds, perfect for the keen nature lover. Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve is just down the road. The area also has a wide range of museums, including the Devils Porridge Museum, where you can learn the story of how this once quiet area flourished into a hub of wartime activity. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
    Fisherman Cottage can be booked together with Rowan Cottage (UK5342) and Keepers Cottage (31312), which are 2 miles away, Blossom Cottage (27754), Hollins Cottage (29591) and Bankswood Cottage (31292), which are 3 miles away to accommodate up to 36 guests.

    Fishermans cottage is in a beautiful location. It is a lovely house and the view's were spectacular. We had a couple of issues but Jamie the owner was brilliant in helping us out. Like a lot of people have mentioned, we thought we would be able to walk down to the beach but we couldn't that was a disappointment. There are lots of places to see and do. Highly recommended

    The cottage desciption on the website is inaccurate and misleading. It explains there is a beach 15 steps from the rear garden - this is untrue. It's across a road to the front of the propery and it cannot be accessed. This is one of the main reasons we chose this property. I think it's important from a health and safecty point of view to highlight to beach is not accessible and is dangerous if people attempt it. Lots of other visitors wrote similar comments in their guest book too. It's simply a view of the solway firth. Despite this there is no doubt it's a beautiful spot, we were very comfortable and had a lovely time. The boathouse glencaple is a great place to go for food/coffee and one of only two placed to eat near-by so you need to book!

    House required a thorough deep clean. Looked like painter decorators had recently completed re decorating works and house was very dirty. Floors, furniture, picture window pane in lounge, Rubbish bin full to brim with builders rubbish, bathroom window had cobwebs hanging, water stains on window ledge in bedroom, rear porch area was filthy. Floor covered with builders rubbish, bird and spider droppings etc etc. Equipment in kitchen was lacking and poor quality. Only two teaspoons. Lot of crockery, tea mugs was unmatched, chipped and heavily stained. No bath towels. Only small hand towels provided. A lot of minor details missed. Like no toilet roll holder in downstairs toilet. Wallpaper hanging off in bedroom window. Front garden needs tidied up. Very overgrown. Car Parking a nightmare. Neighbours not very welcoming. No instructions provided in house description re specific area to park your car. No markings outside house as to where car could be parked. Looks like neighbours have an unwritten agreement to park their car in front of their house. If this is not complied with you get a note stuck to your windscreen re illegally parked. Looks like neighbours have a major issue with walking an additional few spaces. House let as sleeps 6 adults. Which could entail more than one car. Tried to park second car at rear of house. Neighbours park their cars in such a manner preventing you access to park your car at rear door of house. They wanted you to park your car in a layby on the main road which was unlit. Lastly house is mis advertised as saying walking access to the beach. Their is no safe access and signs posted advising of strong current and sinking sands.
