The cottage is delightful, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Discover the ’hidden garden’ with its uninterruped views of the sea. Carsethorn is steeped in history, John Paul Jones, known as ’The Father of the American Navy’, was born just a mile away and frequented the village as a young man.
    Carsethorn is a tranquil and peaceful village where you will hear nothing more than the lapping of the waves.

Come back to Coastguard’s Cottage after a day exploring and relax in the cottage or stroll to the delightful village pub.
    Dumfries and Galloway has much to offer from walking and cycling to fishing, mountain biking and golf, or enjoy a day exploring the many beautiful beaches along the Solway Coast. Try the region’s fantastic 9 and 18 hole golf courses set amid stunning scenery, none more so than the world famous links course at Southerness a five minute drive along the coast.
    Warmed by the Gulf Stream there are many beautiful gardens to visit, including Threave Gardens (National Trust). Further afield the Galloway Forest Park not only has some stunning scenery but is also the UK’s first Dark Sky Park where over 7000 stars and planets are visible with the naked eye. Shop 5 miles, pub next door.

    Excellent location, bit of mix up over cottage being ready which was resolved after a phone call.

    A lovely house in a beautiful location. The house is right next to the beach and next door to a friendly pub with excellent food. The house itself is nicely decorated and very cosy. The only problem we had is that the house wasn't as clean as we would have expected, particularly the kitchen.

    Pleasant cottage. Quiet location as expected. Local pub very good - varied menu and friendly staff. Path from car park to cottage is on a slight incline, narrow and rough, staircase in cottage was very steep. Feel this should be mentioned in cottage details as both a challenge for my husband who has mobility issues. Would not visit again for these reasons.
