This charming, semi-detached cottage is superbly located in the village of Southerness in Dumfries and Galloway and sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

The Bothy is a charming, semi-detached cottage located in the village of Southerness in Scotland. With three bedrooms including two doubles (one with an en-suite shower room), plus one bunks for children, this cottage can sleep six people. The rest of the cottage includes a ground floor bathroom, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with French doors.

Outside there is off road parking for three cars and an enclosed, lawned garden with furniture and a barbecue. The Bothy is a charming cottage, within a two minute walk of the coast, ideal for families and friends. Note: Due to this property being a storey and a half cottage, there are low ceilings on the first floor and care should be taken at all times.

Note: The decorative woodburner is a cosmetic feature and does not emit any heat.


Our second stay in The Bothy in two years, so speaks for itself. The property offers everything you need, is welcoming, warm and comfortable and includes a large flat screen TV (with Sky) and DVD player. Also excellent off street parking for several cars. A convenient base from which to tour this lovely scenic area.

Fantastic cottage which my kids loved especially my toddler who loved the space to run around. Lovely area even though quiet in February but will definitely go back. It felt like home from home which we loved.
Mr Phillips

The bothy is reached by a small private road in a quite area of Southerness near to the lighthouse. So if you want peace and quite this could be the place for for you, but if like us you have young children it is also a good place for you. The information about the bothy on the web is accurate , so i will add a few other details, the accommodation is well kept and clean, if you have small children the bothy comes with a lot of toys and games, outside it has a slide and a trampoline for older children.For adults it comes with some books and film CDs it has a large screen tv in the living room and one in the kitchen .If you have very small children it has safety gates for the stairs. As for wheel chair access not by the front door you may be able to get around to the back door which has a ramp to it but the path is gravel so it my be hard going getting round but doable . The only real problem for some is the low ceilings in the bedrooms which you are warned about but you get used to them after a bit. Down stairs the two rooms are large with a big bathroom with bath and shower and toilet, Not much else to add we had a nice week at the bothy the wife said it had the womans touch to it in the decoration etc i think it felt homely but thats just me, Our two grand children loved playing with the toys ( they also had a lot of their own with them) and the outside play area.

The house was pleasant, comfortable and quiet. It was within easy reach of an atmospheric, rocky beach with its own old lighthouse.
