The cottage has a fitted kitchen, and a sitting room with a dining area and gas fire. Outside there is off road parking for one car, while the lawned garden is very well kept, with views to the sea and beach. The amenities of Southerness are a short walk, and with golfing, walking, cycling and wonderful nature all within easy reach, Oyster Catcher makes a charming family base.


The gardens at Oyster Catcher were were very well maintained and arranged to get the most out of the wonderful scenery. Outside seating areas were very good. Kitchen was well stocked, clean and practical, the modern oven was appreciated too. Lots of fluffy white towels provided. We particularly liked the large front room with big views across the bay and to top it all the sofas were very comfortable. Overall we were impressed with the standard of the cottage.
Mrs Clarke

Oyster Catcher is situated in a great location, with easy access to the beach. It is a superb cottage with a beautiful garden.
Mr Mcghie

This was our second time staying at Oyster Catcher, we loved the cottage and the location right on the beach, perfect for the kids and dog alike. The cottage is very homely and the kids are already asking when we can go back!
Mr Rhodes

It was very warm and comfortable, particularly at this time of year. The location, although on a large holiday park, was tucked away in a discrete corner. The views, at all times of the day and in all weather, made it a magical location. An excellent experience overall and we will recommend to friends and family.
Mrs Chezeaud

The location was good for what we wanted and access to the beach from the garden was an added bonus. The garden was secure so our dog could be allowed out and was safe and secure. The cottage was warm and cosy and there was plenty of lovely thick and very white towels that were available for our use.
