Peaceful family holiday in a well equipped house
This house is in a quiet lane in Southerness, which is a very sleepy place despite the large Parkdean holiday park you pass as you enter the settlement. It is 50m or so from the shore, from which you can walk for 4 miles or so in either direction, taking in the amazing Solway coastline. Its not a sunbathing beach, but for long walks and rockpools its brilliant - kids loved it. The house itself is fairly open plan but very spacious. We really appreciated the two living rooms which helped us space out in the evenings! The two larger bedrooms are downstairs with big ensuite shower rooms. The bedrooms upstairs are in the eves so headroom is a bit more restricted and our children chose those rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped for self catering and there is a nespresso coffee machine! There is a large garden at the side of the house which is just grass, but gives a good safe space for children to play. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

High quality holiday home in a great location
This is a very high quality holiday rental home. The layout of the house was perfect and, unlike many holiday homes, the kitchen was really well equipped for cooking. The house was warm and the beds were very comfortable. The house is 50m from the sea and is close to the mountain bike trails at Mabie and Dalbeattie.

What can you add to what already has been said ,just maybe that it has good wheelchair access into the accommodation and all around the ground floor and ground floor bedrooms for people with mobility problems this is also good.The quare place is expensive but you get what you pay for.We where four adults and two children we all enjoyed our stay at the quare place

We had a lovely time here, we were met by the owner upon arrival. She made us feel very welcome. The place is kept beautifully. We would return in the future and would recommend to friends and family.

The Quare House is a very high standard house at a reasonable price. We do hope to return one day.
