Sleeping up to six people in two bedrooms, this detached single storey cottage is set in the coastal village of Southerness.

Kouloura is a charming holiday home, a single storey detached property within easy reach of the beach in Southerness. There is a double bedroom, and a family bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. There is also a family bathroom. The kitchen has a dining area, while the sitting room offers a cosy open fire, and there are also two conservatories, ensuring a sunny spot in which to relax throughout the day. Outside, the cottage offers off road parking for three cars, and also lawned gardens to the front and rear. With the beach a short walk, and the rest of Dumfries and Galloway a short drive, Kouloura makes a wonderful base for family, friends or walkers to discover this beautiful part of Scotland.


We liked everything; the cottage, the location and we had a very warm welcome from the owners. The cottage was well-equipped, cosy and very clean with a wonderful garden.
Mr Burns

From the moment we arrived at Kouloura and were met by the owners we felt at home. The whole experience was amazing. The cottage is situated in a very cosy part of Scotland where there is plenty of scope to explore or to just sit and relax.
Mrs Kitchener

A lovely home away from home, we especially liked the open fire, it was very cosy. All in all we had an excellent holiday and the hospitality from the owners was first class!
Mrs Gow

The property was very comfortable with an enclosed garden and plenty of room for the dog to play and exercise. The neighbours at the back of the property were very nice and helpful with information on the area. The information provided to us by the property owner and the information leaflets were also good. We really liked the real fire. The surrounding area is very beautiful and there are plenty of things to do/places to visit. Also, many of the pubs/restaurants are dog friendly. We would certainly stay in Kouloura cottage again.
Mr Cameron

The garden, great for the dogs and the children. Lovely homely touches in the cottage.
