Oyster Catcher is in a lovely location and it was great to open the back gate and walk down on to the beach also the view from the dining area was stunning. We loved it that you could walk along the beach for miles and didn't need to use the car. the cottage was very cosy with a lovely fire overall we loved it.
Mr 'wain, Derbyshire
,Firstly, let me thank you for a wonderful cottage which surpassed all our expectations.The location was absolutely perfect and the cottage was extremely comfortable and cosy which is essential in any winter break in Scotland! The completely enclosed garden was a bonus for our daughters and dogs which added to our security and comfort. The sea views were incredible and the majestic Criffel was wonderful to view from the top seat of the dining table due to some careful planning of positioning the garden shed! We had some terrific views of the high tides and birds, rabbits etc, which were excellent to draw and paint from the marvellous windows. The large sturdy dining table was not only great to host our family meals, but was also a bonus for our desktop easels! The steps down to the beach were steep, but well worth the climb down. The garden bench on the steps too, afforded some nice star gazing moments and a great vantage point to watch our girls and dogs playing on the beach. Staying out of season too was a wise choice as we had the beach to ourselves! As for the cottage, it was immaculately clean and the linen and towels were luxurious and fresh. All the rooms were maximised to their full potential. The Christmas tree was a really lovely thought and completely unexpected! The Fischbacher family thank you all very much for making this a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Our 5 day break felt like a 2 week holiday. We will definitely return next year.
Dr Fischbacher, South Lanarkshire
,Had a great stay, a surprising little gem of a place and location. Wouldn't hesitate to book again in the future.
Mr Ledsham, Cheshire
,The property was well represented on the website, but we were so impressed on arrival as it was even better than we had expected. Its location is fabulous, straight out onto the beach and fantastic views of the Solway Firth. A great garden area as well, perfect for the kids and the dog! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we tried to book for later in the year while we were still there, only to find it's booked out until November - not really a surprise! We will definitely book Oyster Catcher again!
Mr Rhodes, West Yorkshire
,"We liked the peace, tranquillity, close proximity to the beach and of course the fantastic view. Waking up to rabbits playing in the garden was magical. Even the rain didn't spoil the view."
Mrs Halliday, West Yorkshire
,We had a peaceful time at Oyster Catcher and enjoyed plenty walks on the beach. This was our second visit to the cottage and we loved it.
Mr Henderson, Tyne and Wear
,We were very lucky to have great weather and the views from Oyster Catcher were fantastic, both day and night. The gardens, of which there were 3 were just lovely. Walking down steps from the gardens right onto the beach was fabulous and my dogs loved it there. , The area is outstandingly beautiful, the people we met were friendly and helpful. Plenty of nearby forest walks for the dogs. I particularly liked the bench situated half way down the steps leading to the beach where I used to take my coffee and gaze at the sea. Very pleased. Wonderful holiday.
,The Oyster Catcher is a little gem, we had the most relaxing, peaceful holiday and the view was out of this world. There was nothing we did not like about it.
Mrs Shardlow, West Yorkshire
,A lovely property which was clean and well furnished. There was a lovely fire in the lounge for chilly evenings. In a fantastic location, loved the garden and the bench by the sea.
Mrs Jones, Suffolk
,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.
Mrs Watson, Tyne and Wear
,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.
,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, West Yorkshire
,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, Lancashire
,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, Lancashire
,The garden was lovely with access straight on to the beach. The dogs loved running around in the spacious garden and walks along the beach in the evening. All in all a lovely property.
