With river views, Yellow Gates is a lovely base for a holiday in the area.


We found that the garden was in excellent condition, very spacious which is what you need when holidaying with a dog. The views were spectacular from the front windows of the property and from just outside were just totally incredible, with panoramic vistas all along the Solway Firth. A very well situated base to see and do things in this area. The owner was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us on the day of our arrival. We very highly recommended this property.

We stayed at Yellow Gates with our adventurous two year old. The outside space was perfect for us, especially the safe enclosed garden. We had fantastic weather and ate outside on the patio every day. The kitchen was especially well equipped. The area offers so much peace and quiet whilst being well linked to Dumfries and the coastal areas. The surrounding countryside and beach on our doorstep are also a major plus for us. The Inn at the end of the street was welcoming and served good pub grub.

The owner has gone to great lengths to ensure that everything you might need is available. The care and attention to detail help to make the cottage a great place to stay. The location and view just add to the experience. A really nice place, one I would definitely visit again.
