Kippford, a rural village in the Scottish county of Dumfries and Galloway is known to locals as the Solway Riviera. The village nestles alongside Urr Water, where it meets the Solway Firth. On arrival, you'll notice the charming white-washed houses and incredible views across the beach with its lichen-covered rocks, peppered with vibrant pink wildflowers in the summer. The lapping of the river at the shore adds to the magical feel of this romantic and unspoiled destination.
At Dog Friendly Cottages, we have an array of welcoming accommodation options in the area: a modern cottage with secluded gardens and a wood-burning stove, or perhaps an impressive Victorian manor house, set in its own estate with woodland trails in the garden. Rest assured that we have some of the best dog-friendly cottages in this area.
While staying at one of our dog-friendly cottages in Kippford, check out the walk from Rockcliffe, meandering alongside the River Urr and allowing for views of the forest, an ancient fort and plenty of wildlife. The Mariner Bar offers traditional fare in cosy surroundings and The Anchor Hotel prides itself on displaying the work of local artists. Book your Kippford stay to ensure your next dog-friendly holiday is a retreat to remember.
