Perched on the estuary of the River Nith, right on the edge of picturesque Glencaple, Shorepark is a beautiful house dating back to the 1700s, now lovingly renovated and available for families and friend groups to rent on a self-catered basis. Combining a charming location with contemporary amenities, Shorepark Holiday Cottage is an excellent getaway for first-timers to the region or experienced enthusiasts. This is a perfect base for exploring the dramatic hillsides, getting to know the coast, or simply spending some restorative downtime with your nearest and dearest.
The property itself is arranged around a central open plan dining, cooking and relaxing space, which benefits from large picture windows. There is underfloor heating installed throughout the cottage, providing a cosy and spacious atmosphere for parties to gather at all times of the day between excursions. The kitchen area benefits from excellent facilities and an abundance of prep surfaces, making it a real delight to cook in, not least as you can remain part of the games and conversations which are taking place on the sofas nearby. As well as a ceramic hob and double oven, the kitchen also contains a dishwasher, fridge-freezer and a microwave.
Doors from this space lead out to the lengthy and beautifully landscaped garden. From here you can watch the river coursing past, or enjoy the covered decking and outside seating in the rainier months. There are three bedrooms in the cottage, two set up as doubles, and a third offering a versatile twin set-up which can also be arranged as a super-king sized. One of the doubles comes with an en-suite shower and lavatory, and the other two share a second bathroom with a bath tub and shower.
Being situated in the quaint and unspoiled village of Glencaple, Shorepark Holiday Cottage is ideally located for access to the charming and uncrowded Dumfries and Galloway. You're also perfectly positioned for the coastline, which is a wonderful place to fish, hike, or gently explore however you please, either plunging into the water in the summer months, or checking out the historic pubs dotted around the shoreline. In Glencaple itself, you can walk to the old quay, once one of the most significant shipping quays in the region. As well as offering easy access to Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve and the Wetland Reserve and castle, the cottage is also close to many excellent eateries in Glencaple. Nith Hotel is just a two minute walk away and has a fantastic restaurant and bar, while the Boathouse Bistro and Shop stocks basic groceries as well as serving brunch and lunch. The three mile walk to The Swan, at Kingholm Quay, is well worth it for the pub food, atmosphere and beer garden. Guests may also want to visit Caerlaverock Castle, a former medieval fortress that is now a popular filming location thanks to its striking exterior and fabulous setting.
